That's right, Spock's Brain. The campiested of campy episodes has gotten the remastered treatment. There's hardly been any contention about the fact that this one is one of the worst of Star Trek, but that hasn't stopped Mike and Denise Okuda and David Rossi from tackling Spock's Brain head-on.

The U.S.S. Enterprise is on a routine mission in deep space when a beautiful young woman beams onto the bridge. Without a word, she touches a band on her wrist and everyone is rendered unconscious. She moves around the bridge until finally she comes to Spock. Smiling, she lays a hand on the Vulcan's head, as if she's found what she was looking for.

When Kirk awakes, Spock is gone from the bridge. Before the captain can find out where his first officer has gone, McCoy calls, demanding his presence in sickbay immediately. Spock's body lays on a diagnostic table, on full life support. McCoy explains that his brain is gone ... miraculously removed with some technology that the doctor has never seen before. Every nerve was sealed and there was no blood lost. However, McCoy tells him if the Vulcan's brain isn't returned to his body within 24 hours, Spock will die.


Duh duhn DUHHHHH! [/dramatic reverb]

I don't think any amount of remastering can possibly make this episode any easier to swallow. But I guess I'll have to reserve official judgement as I have not actually seen the remastered version. :P

They should have renamed it "Where is Paramount's Brain" for wasting the money to revamp it... :upsidedown:

They're remastering all the episodes. The good ones and the bad ones.

I always loved this episode and i thought it was one of the more well done episodes as far as story lines go.

I can count on one hand the number of TOS episodes I don't like. This one is top of that list. LOL Too campy for words, it's beyond watching. I don't get any pleasure out of it, whatsoever. Beyond campy, it makes me squirm in my chair the few times I have sat through it, worse than "The Way to Eden" makes me feel. I've seen it so few times, I don't even recognize it by it's beginning scenes. :unsure: What can I say?
