Reactions and Reviews

Points for new lifeforms. The dreaded ambassador turns out to be Hoorash, a tree-like silicate life form requiring high temperatures. Spock & McCoy visit him in his "pup tent" in the shuttle bay, inside little egg carts. Duties finished, Hoorash is anxious to get home to Suzr before his deathly-ill and dearest lifemate dies. So, the E cuts across Klingon space. Hoorash has to rescue them by stealing dilithium crystals from the Klingon ship, but is injured in the process. McCoy manages to save him by transfusing a solder alloy Scotty rigs up. When they reach Suzr, he does the same for Hrashass, buying her years of life. [1]
