Star Trek Classic: "Mudd's Women"

One of the classic episodes from ST:TOS was "Mudd's Women" – the third episode of the series. You can tell it is an early one as there is no Checkov and Uhura is wearing a command uniform (gold) rather than her more recognizable engineering uniform (red). More after the jump...

The Enterprise catches up with an unknown ship, and saves "Leo Walsh" (Harry Mudd's alias here) and his cargo of three women. The women have a hypnotic effect on the males in the crew. Mudd is a smuggler with a list of other offenses. Kirk puts Mudd on trial, and as things start going bad, his women begin using their powers on the executive staff.

I don't want to spoil it for anyone who has not seen it. More info at Memory Alpha. Or watch the episode at Fancast.

Wow - that brings back memories, the Harry Mudd ep of Star Trek always stuck in my mind for some reason :) but I never realized it was the 3rd one in the series. Glad you found it on Fancast, and if you are a sci-fan fan, your readers may be interested in seeing our full list of shows at http://www.fancast.com/full_episodes
with a lot of other sci fi shows (although don't forget all the sitcom, drama, animation and reality offerings too). BTW, Fancast also has full-length feature films, with a lot of great sci-fi classics too http://www.fancast.com/movies
Cheers,
Jim (for Fancast)
