A good episode, even though it was sort of a re write of the giant ameoba from TOS.

Good point


I to liked this one.


Spock had trouble with Kirk's soultion in the Original.


But that entity was not shown to be intelligent.

Great episode.  It is similar to the Immunity Syndrome except in this case the creature is intelligent and a planet is at stake.  Very similar but there is enough difference to be significant.


 


They encounter the cloud and Spock says it is of irregular shape.  Aren’t all clouds?


 


Kirk says to go to warp 8. “Take it to the limit.”  Isn’t warp 9 the limit in TOS?


 


I love when Kirk asks Governor Wesley how to choose who he will save on his planet and Wesley replies, “There is no choice, we’ll save the children.”  No hesitation or thought.  He knows what he has to do.


 


This is awesome, they actually show the warp core in this episode.  Scotty also comes up with an intelligent engineering solution to charge the core.


 


Nice moment when Spock argues for not killing the creature cause it might be intelligent.  Kirk responds he doesn’t know if it is intelligent but he knows the people on Mantilles are so he will act to save them.


 


Spock convinces the cloud to return to where it came but how does he know there isn’t intelligent life there it will accidently eat?  Seems like they should have asked it to stand still and they would help it find an acceptable food source and learn how to detect intelligent life.  There was also so much to learn from the cloud it is a shame they sent it off without trying to talk with it further.

Good episode. Would have worked equally well as a TOS episode. It even has a nice nod to TOS canon by mentioning the former Starfleet officer Bob Wesley from the M5 Computer episode.
