Star Trek’s Mind Sifter

Several different people have been making new episodes of the original series, complete with costumes and sets just like the original show. These are pretty decent productions.  One recently released was based on the fan fiction short story “Mind Sifter.”  This was a story good enough to get picked up for professional publication back in the 1970s, and Star Trek: The New Voyages makes it into a great episode.

It’s a toss up between what I like.  Kor is a deliciously evil character because he sees his own side, and he’s right for his side.  But there’s also a spectacular battle that today’s special effects makes happen.

Trivia:  Kirk’s wraparound shirt worn during the second season was to conceal a weight gain of the lead actor.
