The return of the real-life Captain Kirk and his crew in earlier adventures.

Today: Wolf in the Fold
Caught red-handed beside savagely-slain victims, the misogynous Chief Engineer of the Enterprise seems to have taken his aversion to the fair sex too far. If he is to go Scott-free, his captain must isolate the evil spirit that has actuated such spasms of slaughter through the ages.

by W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan

Jack Point and his sweetheart Elsie come to the Tower to earn money with which to buy medicine for her sick mother. Elsie is persuaded to become the secret bride of Fairfax 'to be beheaded in an hour,' but then he escapes.

"It's a song of a merryman, moping mum,
Whose soul was sad, and whose glance was glum,
Who sipped no sup, and who craved no crumb,
As he sighed for the love of a ladye!"
