9786300988750: Star Trek - The Original Series, Episode 79: Turnabout Intruder [VHS]

This, the final episode of the original Star Trek series, is a doozy. Dr. Janice Lester, scientist and ex-flame of Captain Kirk, uses alien technology to switch bodies with him. As Kirk fights to regain control of his body and the Enterprise, the ship's officers must choose between going along with the increasingly erratic behavior of "Kirk" or risking mutiny. Setting aside Trek's rather quaint view of feminism--Lester's ambitions are tied to a hatred of her own womanhood--the episode is a corker to watch. Tension builds well as the officers try to figure out how to ally themselves, and William Shatner clearly has a good time playing a woman in his own body, enjoying his manly physique and casually filing his nails as he discusses policy with Spock. Although this episode has often been ridiculed by hardcore Trekkers, it provides a fitting end to a great series. --Ali Davis

From the Back Cover:

Watch the scene in the sickbay between Spock and McCoy. In some shots, McCoy is wearing his uniform top; in others, his surgical top!
