From memory alpha:
Producer Fred Freiberger noted that the episode was intended to appeal to women who were skeptical of science fiction. He remarked, "We tried to reach a segment of the audience we couldn't otherwise reach, and didn't succeed."
weird sexist jokes and a female lead with little consistency of character - surprisingly not effective!
