  • In search of a cure for a plague, the Enterprise discovers a divided world, with an elite group of "haves" living in the clouds and a group of "have-nots" mining below.

    This episode is a mixed bag, which is about the best that can be hoped for at this point in the series. There are some interesting visuals, lots of action, and interesting story to hold the viewer's attention; but there are also some plot holes and character inconsistencies (most notably involving Spock, who freely brags about Pon Farr, despite Spock and Vulcan Matriarch T'Pau making it clear in "Amok Time" that this sort of thing is not to be mentioned to "outworlders".) While Shatner and guest star Jeff Corey (Plasus) are great, and Diane Ewing (Droxine) is okay, Nimoy mails it in, clearly giving up on the series here, and Charlene Polite's performance (Vanna) isn't very memorable either.
