Episode propaganda

Scott (James Doohan) is recovering from an accidental head injury caused by a female crewmember, so Kirk (William Shatner) and McCoy (Deforest Kelley) take him to an Argelian nightclub. Scotty takes a shine to a lady who is then brutally murdered and he becomes the number one suspect when he is found nearby, holding a bloody knife! As the investigation proceeds, another woman's murder points to Scotty as the culprit. Has his head injury turned Scotty into a cold-blooded lady-killer?

Intelligence report

A nice, deceitful murder mystery.

Of course, you know Scott can't be a baddie (nae wi' an accent li' tha'), but you do have to doubt as evidence mounts against him. Kirk also begins to doubt as he fights between his innate desire to believe Scott and the pointing fingers, not to mention his greater duty to Starfleet which maintains the only Starbase in the sector on Argelius.

There are red herrings aplenty and not a few subtle clues which the wary will pick up on during the course of this intriguing episode. Of special note is the fact that women die all throughout, something which was pretty much taboo for the times. Womanhood was a sanctified position full of virtue and innocence; while that still holds true in Wolf in the fold, it doesn't stop them from dying horrible deaths. Cool.
