Recap of Star Trek TOS 2x05: The Apple

This episode is one of my favorite TOS episodes. Why? I'm not quite sure. Maybe it's the philosophical bickering between Spock and McCoy that goes beyond the usual illogical/green-blooded insults. Or maybe it's Kirk's complete dismissal of the prime directive. Or maybe the constant references to sex.

In the following episode, Spock gets heroically injured twice, Chekov has a girlfriend, and the word of the day is "Paradise".
