Continuing where Part 1 left off, the Enterprise is getting repairs at space station New Oxford. Harry Mudd’s along for the ride, and Kirk reunites him with his cantankerous wife, Stella.
“Harry, I know you never never loved me and you left me alone,” she says, “I’m glad you left me alone, for that I’ll give you this.” She gives him a remote control called the Wish Master 5,000,007 ( yes, it grants wishes).
Honestly, I’m not quite sure what happens here. I think Harry wishes for a shitload of money, then an Orion ship shows up to attack the space station.
Harry again uses the Wish Master to destroy the Orions, but the shockwave from the explosion damages the space station, prompting a quick evacuation of all aboard.
Kirk loses his wig and the Enterprise lands on a deserted planet. Here, Harry wishes to become a giant for some reason and messes with Kirk and the rest of the crew.
Stella and her new husband Q (what?) show up because Harry didn’t read the fine print on the Wish Master: “Limit 2 wishes.”
The Enterprise warps off and Harry’s…sucking his thumb with a teddy bear?
This one was weird but in a boring way; more incoherent than the others. I remembered this being an actual good, fun story but I guess I was wrong!
