The psycho-tricorder would change the dynamic of future shows forever. I'm glad it was only a one episode device...well as far as I know up to this point.

The Tor link says it best:

Seriously? All this time they’ve had a piece of technology that reads and records memories, and they’ve been using these archaic court martials? Why ever investigate anything? This is easily the most ridiculous invention-of-the-week that Star Trek has thrown out there so far. Thanks, Robert Bloch.


Overall, a bleh episode for me, but the Jack the Ripper thing was somewhat interesting if not completely out of left field.

I do love that the solution is everybody taking drugs.
