The 'Jack the Ripper' episode is another action episode from the second season. The conclusion to the teaser is quite chilling, although the episode never quite reaches that pitch thereafter. The exotic pleasure palace and seance keep things going for a while, but much of the show is ultimately taken up by the 'baton-passing' of Rejack. Once we know the episode's fairly compelling hook, there isn't much novelty even in Rejack's penultimate resting place.
This episode also was not the highpoint of gender sensitivity. 'The Boys' are pretty glib in their loose talk at the beginning of the episode, and the violence towards women isn't treated as anything more than a plot device to get Scotty into trouble. On the other hand, the same could be said of most Star Trek violence towards MEN. There's no denying though that death was treated more lightly after the first season. Some second season episodes (Patterns of Force was the worst offender) stepped way over the line; the producers seemed to feel that as long as they didn't side with the bad guys (and they didn't) any subject could be treated, and in some cases treated lightly.)

When Scotty (James Doohan) is found to be the lone person on site when three women were killed, he is put on trial, and it's up to Kirk, Spock and Bones to uncover his innocence. The investigation soon reveals that an energy creature once known on Earth as Jack the Ripper, is respoceible for the murders. this Star Trek story is full of horror and suspence, but as a kind of funny ending to it, which would make Alfred Hitchcock proud.Written by Robert Bloch. Directed by Joseph Pevney. Music Composed and Conducted by Gerald Fried.

"Wolf In The Fold" is an exciting episode of the original Star Trek. A woman is killed and Scotty's fingerprints are the only ones anybody can find on the knife that killed her. Eventually 2 more women are killed and Scotty is the closest one to both of them when the lights come back on. Scotty and the USS Enterprise crew must proceed to a court session along with 2 men that are from the planet on which the murders occurred. They must determine who is the killer of these 3 women.
"Wolf In The Fold" is an exciting Jack The Ripper tale. Is it a creature killing the women? Or is it Scotty or some other person? I recommend getting "Wolf In The Fold" in order to find out. It starts getting real exciting and suspenseful once the court sessions begin onboard the USS Enterprise. You'll also become familiar with the talking computer of the Enterprise.
