With a title like Jihad and knowing the insensitivity of the early 70's and early Star Trek in general, I was worried about what might happen.

I think the only thing that was really shocking though was when the amazon like girl tries repeatedly to get Kirk to forget stopping the galactic war to just have a little sex in the bushes. Kirk's response (surprisingly) is basically, yeah I like to get down with aliens (although she calls herself a human at least once) but now is not the time.

That doesn't sound that crazy.. except this was a children's show! Some of the 60's swung right into the 70's I guess.
