Opinions on "That Which Survives," please.

Personally, I enjoy the episode immensely. It's surprisingly simple, yet never gets boring. Not a classic, but one of the better 3rd season outings. Plus Lee Meriwether is in it and that's always a good thing

I love it. I think Lee Meriwether manages to convey the pain her "original" would have felt at having to do harm beautifully. I like the simplicity of the attack (touch and kill). I like the confined environment...it's all good. This is really a wonderful episode. I gave it a 4 because I think the top rating should be reserved for the episodes that are truly amazing (City on the Edge of Forever, obviously...I'd argue for Immunity Syndrome).

I appreciate the fact that while this is a very Kirk centric episode, it's not also focused on Spock and McCoy...it's nice to see others in the crew being important characters. It's nice to see Kirk engaging other members of his team and having them respond as a team. It's good to realize it was not just the three amigos romping through space.

And...of course...Lee Meriwether is hot and wears a cool outfit. That's certainly in the plus column.

Agreed. I would also argue that All Our Yesterdays should be considered a classic. Certainly up there in quality for the third season.

I don't think of this as being a 'Kirk-centric' episode, as the scenes I like best are the ones back on the ship. I love the dynamic between Spock and Scotty - the understanding, mutual respect, even touches of humour.
Spock's refusal to eject the crawlway (and Scott) from the ship, when logic surely dictated that it was the right thing to do (the needs of the many should have outweighed the needs of the one) deserved a closing scene along the lines of the one in 'the Galileo Seven', since this too was a decision based on emotion.

The only thing that pains me about the episode, is the fact that Spock seems out of character slightly.

I actually just watched it a few days ago and really enjoyed it. The third season really does have some gems.

The Paradise Syndrome

Requiem for Methuselah

The Tholian Web

For the world is hollow..

Spector of the Gun

and of course, The Enterprise Incident. Da Da Da Da. DA DA!

I thought it was fairly forgettable. I gave it 2 out of 5 stars. The Third Season had some much worse shows, but this one was not one of the better ones either, IMHO.
