I like this one. Kim Hunter is good, but all the other actors use their voices brilliantly.

This is the only episode I remember from my childhood. It had a profound effect on younger me - adult me found it pretty silly.

Such an odd concept. Take the women's lib of the early 1980s. Add a female engineer who desperately wants to prove herself in a man's world. Then force her to take a ludicrous position defending a weird supernatural solution to a real-world position - thus making her reinforce a spacey female image - but add that she is irresistible to the men she needs to convince. I can't tell if this kind of story put the women's movement ahead or terribly behind. (I suspect the latter) It's just a bit weird.
