Star Trek The Original Series Rewatch: "Whom Gods Destroy"
Queen to queen's level three. For the proper response, check out the TOS Rewatch, where we see Steve Ihnat and Yvonne Craig try out out-overact William Shatner in "Whom Gods Destroy."

An excerpt:
As an acting exercise for Steve Ihnat and Yvonne Craig, this is a fun little hour to watch. I like that Ihnat doesn’t overplay Garth’s insanity—it’s a very intelligent, mostly very controlled madness. In fact, the only exception is the temper tantrum he throws when he learns of the security callsign, and I’m willing to put most of that on William Shatner’s usual theatricality. His costuming is particularly ingenious, from the cape that is constantly falling off, to the medal that flies off his chest as he’s throwing the temper tantrum, to the rather pathetic crown, to the thing I never actually noticed until this rewatch: his boots are mismatched! One is silver, one is gold.
