Oh. No Rand. Maybe she has gone.
So, a shuttle from the Enterprise crashes on a planet, with Spock, McCoy, Scott and four others. Having not watched this for a while, my guess is that the four “unknowns” will die, and the others will survive.
I think this is the first time that we have seen a shuttle from the Enterprise. (The one we saw in part one of The Menagerie was from the space station, although these are clearly the same sets!!) This episode is supposed to be a classic. But it is about seven people trapped on a planet being killed off by yeti-like monsters. What is to like? The only plus side to The Galileo Seven is that we notch up a few more crew deaths! (One on another landing party, 2 on the Galileo).
Crew Deaths: 3
Total Crew Deaths So Far: 23
Score: 3/10
