Season three of the original series of Star Trek is characterized by some of the worst episodes in the history of the franchise. NBC was pushing the further and further out of the prime-time slot (with season three, the episodes aired at 10:00 PM in most of the country!), and funding was becomming harder to come by. The network had never really liked Star Trek, and now they were showing their disdain in every way possible asside from actually cancelling the show.

They had, in fact tried to cancel the show after the second season, but due to a massive letter writing campain by the fans, they decided to keep it. By the end of season three, however, not even an avalanche of letters could save the doomed sci-fi show.
