  • Kirk visits a planet that the Klingons are interfering with and is wounded by a deadly creature.

    This is Star Trek's Vietnam War allegory. (The episode originally aired in 1968 just as the tide in the war was shifting.) Nancy Kovak is good as the sexy alien girl Nona, but most of the episode is sleepy or preachy. The A story involves Kirk and McCoy on the planet of the week, disagreeing on what to do. The B story, which takes place on the Enterprise, involves a wounded Mr. Spock, who is hurt in the episode's teaser. Neither story has much zip, though some interesting issues are brought up and there are a number of quotable lines about war from the regulars.
