Episode complete credited cast:
Andrea Dromm ...


When the Enterprise attempts to penetrate a space barrier, it is damaged and creates a potentially worse problem. Two crew members, including Kirk's best friend, gain psionic powers that are growing at a geometric rate. That leaves Captain Kirk with the difficult choice of either marooning them or killing before they get so powerful that they lose their humanity and become truly dangerous.

Lt. Mitchell: Hey, man, I remember you back at the Academy; a stack of books with legs! The only thing I ever heard from an upperclassman was, "Watch out for Lt. Kirk! In his class, you either think, or sink!"
Capt. Kirk: I wasn't THAT bad, was I?
Lt. Mitchell: If I hadn't aimed that little blond technician at you...
Capt. Kirk: You what? You... you PLANNED that?
Lt. Mitchell: Well, you wanted me to think, didn't you? I outlined her whole campaign for her!
Capt. Kirk: I almost MARRIED her!
Lt. Mitchell: You better be good to me. I'm getting even better ideas here.

Good first episode with William Shatner confronting psychic enemies
10 January 2007 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

This first chapter from the first season starred by William Shatner deals with a black box from USS Valiant starship explaining the story upon a magnetic storm edge galaxy , while USS Enterprise is next to the barrier . Captain James T. Kirk decides cross it with dangerous consequences . His best friend , lieutenant Gary Mitchell threats the aircraft security , Kirk must choose : Leaving to Mitchell in a solitary planet or kill him when he still can do it .

This is an entertainment romp where are introduced the characters of the series . Here William Shatner replacing Jeffrey Hunter (The Menagerie) makes a valiant and intelligent Kirk . Leonard Nimoy , as always , is splendid in his immortal role as cold Vulcanian . Starring actors of this episode are Gary Lockwood , two years later famous for ¨2001 space odyssey¨ and Sally Kellerman posteriorly successful in ¨Mash¨ . Besides , noted secondary actors , just like Paul Fix and Lloyd Haynes . Other original actors making a brief apparition are Scotty (recently deceased James Doohan) and Zulu (George Takei). The classical musical score by the usual series , Alexander Courage . The episode was well directed by James Goldstone (Roller-coaster , When the time ran out). This television film will appeal to the Trekkers enthusiasts as well as the initiated .
