Trekathalon TOS: 1-5 The Enemy Within

This plot.  Jimminy, this plot.  A transporter accident [splits Kirk into a good but ineffectual twin and evil but charismatic twin], the crew has to [convince weak kirk and strong kirk to hug it out on a transporter pad] before [Sulu and an away team freeze to death]. A valuable lesson about [human nature] is learned.    Replace the variables, and you've got three dozen other Trek episodes over the next fifty years.  I shouldn't fault this one for being the first, but I can't help it.

Though we do get the cocker-spaniel-with-crap-stuck-to-it spacedog, and some very effectively creepy lighting and direction.
