3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly below average shows bridge seasons 1 and 2 Sept. 10 2003
Operation: Annihilate-The string of winning episodes finally came to an end in the final show of season one, which concerned pancake-like creatures that attack Spock's central nervous system. This was by no means trek at it's worst incidentally; just a step down from the prior six shows produced. The episode feels more like a second season episode in that it lacks the complex themes of its precursors; still it manages to work in a loss for Kirk and the effects that physical pain can have on the way we present ourselves. (As an aside, one thing that does connect this episode with season one is the slow pace at which the story develops.) This is one of those shows though that despite a disturbing premise doesn't have a lot to say in the end, and relies on a gimmick for the ultimate resolution of the conflict. Also dulling are the absence of significant guest performances and the un-engaging sets; both may well have been due to both empty coffers and fatigue at this point. Virtually everyone involved had certainly laid it out there in season one, both in terms of effort and sincere emotional investment; it wouldn't always be that way. (2.5 stars)
Tidbit: Both of the dead Kirks would appear in other episodes: the elder 79 times as Captain Kirk, and the younger once as Tommy Starnes in And the Children Shall Lead.
Catspaw, an episode which employs Halloween frights (witches, black cats, etc.), was the first episode produced in the second season. There is a light, jaunty quality to both the music and the performances not seen during season 1. It's almost as if everyone gave a collective sigh when the show was finally renewed, and thought they wouldn't be as heavily scrutinized the next year.

REVIEWED ITEM: Star Trek┬« Original Series DVD Volume 15: Operation: Annihilate!┬ę / Catspaw┬ę
OPERATION: ANNIHILATE!┬ę PRELIMINARY BRIEFS:
Moral, Ethical, and/or Philosophical Subject(s) Driven Into The Ground: Facing and living with the consequences of one´¿s choices and decisions
Historical Milestone: The first and last appearance of Captain Kirk´¿s closest relatives
Expendable Enterprise Crewmember (´¿Red Shirt´¿) Confirmed Casualty List: None
REVIEW/COMMENTARY: ´¿Operation: Annihilate!´¿ (or ´¿The Attack of The Omelet Creatures´¿ as I like to call it) isn´¿t one of my more fave eppies. But even so, it does have its moments of cheesy charm. This particular outing is especially notable for yet another example of the recurring ´¿Spock´¿s-Vulcan-biology-explaining-his-miraculous-recovery´¿ plot gimmick. He gets attacked and infected by an omelet-creature, yet manages to control his pain much better than any mere human would. He even manages to suffer ´¿permanent´¿ blindness and recovers from it, all during the episode´¿s last ten minutes! More proof positive that Spock is the Timex´¿ of Star Trek´¿-- he takes a lickin´¿ and keeps on tickin´¿!
Final note: Ain´¿t it spooky how Captain Kirks´¿ dead brother looks kinda like that General Mortars guy from Loaded Weapon 1´¿? The resemblance is uncanny!

3.0 out of 5 stars A BIZARRE COLLECTION OF TREK EPISODES! July 18 2002
Volume 15 of The Star Trek TOS DVD series should be noted to have the last episode filmed in season 1 and the first episode filmed in the second season. However these episodes are some of the most bizarre episodes to ever grace the series.
OPERATION-ANNILATE! was the last episode in season 1. It closed the 1966-67 season with a bang. Making sure that fans would tune in for the second season for another collection of Star Trek Adventures. OPERATION - ANNILATE'S plot was a very good one as a notorious space bacteria that travels from system to system killing everything in it's path has crossed path with the USS Enterprise. The bacteria has travelled to a planet by the name of Deneva killing Kirk's brother Sam and his wife. As the bacteria begins to consume yet another system it is up to Kirk and the crew to stop it. The episode is very well written and despite the fact the the bacteria organisms look like novelty store vomit this episode is one of Trek's less cheesier outings.
CATSPAW was the first episode filmed in season 2 but the seventh the air (partly because it had a Halloween like concept). Anyway this was not a good start to the second season. The setting is great, the warlock characters are interesting but the plot was really stupid! If this episode was supposed to be some sort of spooky thriller it failed miserably it came out more like a campy episode of Batman or The Monkees! However it should be noted that this episode marks the debut of Lt. Pavel Chekov in his ridiculous Monkee-esque wig. The very idea that network executives tried to make Chekov a Davy Jones clone is insulting to both Star Trek Series and the viewers. Thankfully the wig would be ditched after a few episodes.
CATSPAW is one of the lesser Trek episodes of Season 2.
