  • Dr. Janice Lester is the villain of "Turnabout Intruder", the final episode of the original Star Trek series, which would also make her the series' final antagonist.

abstract
  • Dr. Janice Lester is the villain of "Turnabout Intruder", the final episode of the original Star Trek series, which would also make her the series' final antagonist. She was played by Sandra Smith while in her own body and by William Shatner while in Kirk's body. Lester is known to hate being a woman, which she believes is the reason she couldn't achieve her dream of commanding a starship. She was also a former lover of James T. Kirk's, and it's implied that her jealousy of Kirk ended their relationship. At some point, she became the leader of an archaeological expedition on Camus II. After discovering a machine which swaps consciousnesses, Lester and Dr. Arthur Coleman murdered the rest of the expedition in order to lure the Enterprise to the planet. While alone with Kirk, she used the machine to swap herself into his body. As Kirk, Lester took over as captain of the Enterprise. She tried to suppress the real Kirk, who was inside her original body, but Spock got to him and did a mind-meld; this convinced Spock of the truth. Spock's conviction and Lester's increasingly obvious lack of leadership ability turned much of the crew against her. Eventually, the transfer broke, leaving Lester and Kirk to float back into their original bodies. Kirk felt sympathy for her at the end and had Coleman escort her to Sickbay. Lester is likely a psychopath, given her apparent lack of remorse for murdering her expedition and willingness to commit further murders. However, she was unable to kill Kirk due to still having feelings for him.
