Trek Remastered -- "Whom Gods Destroy" and "The Mark of Gideon"

I missed last week's episode, "Whom Gods Destroy", so this is a double-shot preview. I'll get a chance to catch it on Saturday night's rerun.

"Whom Gods Destroy", as mentioned in this review, is a real departure for the series. It's almost like an episode of Batman, especially with Batgirl herself, Yvonne Craig, as an Orion slave girl.

"The Mark of Gideon" is the episode where Captain Kirk is held aboard an empty replica of the Enterprise on an overpopulated planet. I suppose they had no money and had to reuse the ship sets for that week's episode.
