I love this episode. We get to see George Takei as Captain Hikaru Sulu, the late Grace Lee Whitney as Commander Janice Rand and the late Micheal Ansara as Commander Kang. But, being a spaceship groupie, I love it most because we see the USS Excelsior square off with three D-7A Klingon Battlecruisers. She has to run because she's outnumbered, but she gives it all she has. She gets payback at the end of STVI: TUC by helping Enterprise A destroy General Chang's Bird Of Prey.
