When an android takes control of the Enterprise, Kirk and his crew spend four days traveling at warp speed to an uncharted planet. When they beam down they find none other that Harry Mudd, the apparent ruler of the planet made up entirely of androids. It turns out there is one major problem with Harry's idyllic existence: the androids who serve him hand and foot simply won't allow him to leave. Kirk and Spock devise a way to disable the androids but have their own special plans for Harry. Written by garykmcd

Mudd's Androids
8 January 2017 | by Rainey-DawnSee all my reviews

Season 2, episode 8. The Enterprise is taken over by an android that has sabotaged the ship (causing it to destruct if they try to regain control) and forcing the crew to an unknown destination. They approach an uncharted planet and the android requires Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Chekhov, Uhura and Scotty to beam down to the planet. When they arrive they are greeted by none other than the outlaw Harry Mudd. Questioning Mudd they learn that he wants the Enterprise and leave Kirk and all crew on the uncharted planet Harry named after himself. This planet is full of androids that serve Mudd. Prodding Mudd more they learn that these androids will serve humans in order to study them but needed more humans to study besides just Mudd... that is why Mudd sent out one of his androids and, as luck would have it, brought back Kirk and crew. Time for the Captain and his crew members to do some quick thinking.

Fun, fun episode... better than Mudd's Women in my opinion. Mudd is a character I love to hate and hate to love. A goofy scoundrel that has a personal vendetta against Kirk. Poor Harry will never win.
