41 – The Deadly Years

Grade: B-

The Deadly Years (1967) on IMDb


The Enterprise comes across a space station where the scientists who should be in the mid 20s have aged rapidly and become senile. If they can’t find out why, they will all die of old age before they turn 30.


Shatner’s acting in this episode is better than most. It’s an enjoyable show. But it’s not awesome. Overall, it’s better than average, but that’s about it. I honestly don’t have much to say about this episode.

Of Note

All of the space visuals for this episode came from previous episodes. That probably made this one pretty inexpensive to produce.
