Storyline

The Enterprise receives an old style SOS signal and finds on arrival a planet that is virtually identical to Earth. Kirk, Spock, McCoy and Yeoman Rand beam down to the planet only to find that it is inhabited solely by children. Kirk befriends one of the older children, Miri, but they soon learn that experiments to prolong life killed all of the adults and that the children will also die when they reach puberty. They also learn that the children are in fact, very old. Soon, the landing party contracts the virus and has seven days to find a cure. Written by garykmcd

Near the end, when Spock and McCoy are debating on how much longer to wait for the Captain before testing the antidote, the scene is cast in a reddish tint. When Spock is walking out of the lab, the red tint abruptly changes to normal lighting. See more »

Quotes

Dr. McCoy: It's dead. It's incredible.
Capt. Kirk: What is?
Dr. McCoy: It's metabolic rate. It's impossibly high, as if it burning itself up. Almost as if it aged a century in just the past few minutes.

Grups
18 May 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Kim Darby and Michael J. Pollard guest star in this Star Trek prime episode where Darby is in the title role. They are 300 year old children on this planet, a handful of survivors whose growth has been slowed, but not halted. When they reach puberty they will die of the same plague that their parents did.

When the Star Trek away team beams down, they all with the exception of Leonard Nimoy due to his Vulcan anatomy all start coming down with what killed the inhabitants.

William Shatner has an interesting problem, the only ones who can help are the kids, but they are children and reason like children. But Darby is entering puberty, we know because she finds the grown up captain of the Enterprise attractive.

By the way the Enterprise away team are referred to as 'Grups' a slang contraction for grownups. And Grups are the enemy of kids.

An interesting episode to say the least.
