Extragalactic aliens hijack the Enterprise and turn the crew into inert solids…

The Trekzone Review

One of the rare episodes in the back half of this season where an advanced person isn’t trying to destroy a primitive culture by giving advanced technology… instead advanced beings from the Andromeda Galaxy want the Enterprise and they just won’t take no for an answer!

Seriously, what’s with the throwing action by an actor when they are hit by an unseen force? Also, how did they know to pick out the two red shirts and not – say – Spock or McCoy… is it a galactic code? Trying to stump these Kelvin’s was quite humorous with Scotty getting drunk, Kirk seducing the female and Spock out-chessing the leader.
