Long DescriptionThe Enterprise's Vulcan-born first officer, Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy), generally smiles about as often as Greta Garbo. But in episode 25 of the original 1960s series, not only does Spock smile, he laughs, dangles from a tree, kisses a good-looking blonde woman, and gets into a fight with his best friend. Could this be some long-lost episode in which Nimoy's stoic hero regresses into a 6-year-old? No, but it is one of the most popular stories from Gene Roddenberry's classic Trek. Spock, Captain Kirk (William Shatner), Dr. McCoy (DeForest Kelley), Sulu (George Takei), and a couple of crewmen beam down to Omicron Ceti III hoping to find out what happened to a group of scientists who built a research colony on the planet. What they discover is a little spooky. The self-satisfied colonists claim they've created a true paradise where no one has needs or wants, where no one ages or gets sick, and everyone is part of a collective mind bent on positivity. Kirk, naturally, argues that paradise robs men of their need to suffer and crawl toward progress. Meanwhile, Spock is zapped by an exotic flower that is the real source of all this community goodwill, and he instantly gets happy--acting like a kid, renewing a romance with a comely biologist (an angelic Jill Ireland), and giving the sputtering Kirk an earful of entertaining insubordination. Story editor D.C. Fontana's script contains some obvious parallels between a chemically induced "paradise" and a drug-induced high in the '60s. But the real draw here is Spock's uncharacteristic joy and the drama behind Kirk's shattering decision to break his friend's heart. --Tom Keogh
