On this mission, we explore Episode 10 of Star Trek: TOS, Dagger of the Mind. While on a re-supply mission to a rehabilitation colony for the criminally insane, the Enterprise crew discover that the chief doctor has been using a device which destroys the human mind. Kirk and a female crew member, down on the planet, must deal with the problem up close and personal. Spock performs a mind meld for the first time in this episode. Plus, as usual, we geek out about all things Star Trek!
