  1. I think the complexion criticism may be misplaced. The actors are not portraying non-white humans. They are alien characters with alternative body chemistry. Andorians are in blue-face, Orions are in Green-face and Klingons are in shiney over-ripe avacado face.

    This is very different to the browned up Amerindians and Khan in previous episodes where proper casting should have prevailed.

    Michael Ansara will always be my favorite Klingon. He’s ruthless and has a sense of humor. He has an amazing voice as well. He voiced Mr. Freeze in the Batman cartoons.

    A cowardly entity that instigates, then feeds on, racism… Was this Star Trek episode written yesterday?

    1. I wouldn’t have said that the make-up in this episode is racist, just awful! It looks like they’ve rubbed a chocolate bar over their face until it all melted!

      In fairness it probably looks a lot worse on our giant HD screens than on the TVs of the time. Also, I wonder if Susan Howard complaned about her make-up – she seems to be more ‘heavily tanned’ towards the end of the episode versus ‘several coats of Ronseal Dark Oak’.
