  • The Enterprise visits a dangerous planet with childlike inhabitants that call themselves the Feeders of Vaal.

    This is a forgettable episode that once again pits Kirk versus the machine, and once again allows Kirk to disrupt a paradise that he believes Man (and Woman) isn't meant for. Most of the episode is a bore, with cheesy makeup and cheesy sets. Guest star Keith Andes (Akuta) gives a wooden performance. (It probably wasn't the best choice to cast the Andes, nearing the age of 50 at the time, as a childlike youngster who likes to run around mostly naked.) Still, the episode has some interesting ideas, including the first talk of a saucer separation – which would become reality twenty years later in the pilot for Star Trek: The Next Generation. And it's one of the first episodes to showcase Chekov, who gets off some good lines and proves his worth.
