  • Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock are captured during a diplomatic mission and declared dead.

    Made during the Vietnam War, this episode is Star Trek's statement that trying to keep war "nondisruptive" and "neat and clean" is not a good thing. The A story is the classic "Kirk and Spock on the planet of the week, working their way through the obstacles put in their path". And the B story is about Scotty, in charge of the Enterprise, dealing with the leader of the planet below and an Ambassador who disagrees with his decisions. Both stories are effective, and overall it's a good, though sometimes plodding and predictable, episode. Kirk's speech at the end is especially interesting.
