I remember thinking Marta was problematic because there was that vibe about her where in an episode that takes place on a ship with a number of insane inmates her insanity was hinted at being especially wretched or twisted because she was a woman. That might've been me projecting the show's attitude towards women coming right off on Elaan of Troyius. As we say, Yvonne Craig did a marvelous job. I think I just never trust this show when it comes to female characters and have a hair trigger whenever they're brought up in discussion. I think Garth mentions something about her being one of the worst of them all or something. Him blowing her up was pretty gratuitous.
