Star Trek The Original Series Rewatch: "For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky"
McCoy hits all the clichés! He has a year to live, he falls in love, and he helps save a generation ship from crashing into a planet. The TOS Rewatch knows that life is a lie "For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky."

An excerpt:
This script would have benefitted greatly by aping the structure of another third-season love-story-in-an-hour episode about a planetary collision, to wit, “The Paradise Syndrome.” (This despite the latter episode being inferior to this one.) The episode would have worked far better by taking more story time in the hour, giving McCoy and Natira’s relationship a chance to grow the way Kirk’s and Miramanee’s did, and have the Enterprise‘s efforts to get Yonada back on course take a certain amount of time and effort.
