Star Trek The Original Series Rewatch: "Bem"
The Enterprise takes on an observer, and he's thrice the man he used to be. Also: kind of a jerk. The TOS Rewatch meets "Bem."

An excerpt:
I must confess to having cheered when Uhura lectures Scott on following proper procedure. As I’ve pointed out any number of times, Kirk’s reputation as a maverick who thumbs his nose at the rulebook is entirely an artifact of the movies—usually if someone’s going to break the rules or disobey orders, it’s Scotty (e.g., “A Taste of Armageddon,” “Friday’s Child“), and it’s nice to see Uhura bitchslap him for it. And just in general, it’s good to once again see Uhura in charge, and this time it’s a legitimate thing rather than her just being in charge ’cause it’s the girl episode.
