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

Goofs

Given that the Captain's Log stated that the SOS Transmitter was found in the same building as the Lab, why couldn't someone (probably Mr. Spock) have used this to signal the Enterprise to beam down some more Communicators, thus solving their dilemma? He will make a computer out of local items from an even earlier time period in Star Trek: The City on the Edge of Forever. Also, when the children steal the communicators, they only get three - presumably Kirk's, Spock's, and McCoy's. Rand and the two security men are not present, and therefore probably have their communicators with them - it is highly unlikely Kirk would let them go off into unknown territory without standard equipment.

Quotes

Capt. Kirk: Bones.
Dr. McCoy: Hmm?
Capt. Kirk: Why do you think the symptoms haven't appeared on Mr. Spock?
Dr. McCoy: I don't know. Probably the little bugs or whatever they are have no appetite for green blood.
Mr. Spock: Hmm. Being a red-blooded human obviously has its disadvantages.

Just Who Made Their Clothes?

Kirk and the gang encounter a group of children, living on a planet where the adults seem to have disappeared a long time ago. Upon arrival, they find a man dying in agony and don't understand the how he arrived at his condition. Investigating further, they come upon what appear to be children who act like six year olds, even though they are actually 300 years old. Dr. McCoy comes to the conclusion that there is something about the planet that causes a horrible demise when puberty is reached. Kirk tries to negotiate with the kids because they think the adults are responsible. Kirk meets Miri (Kim Darby) who develops a crush on him. Unfortunately for her, she is beginning to show symptoms similar to the dying man. She has another ally, a young man played by the very strange Michael J. Pollard who was the driver in the "Bonnie and Clyde." The kids just won't trust the crew and this presents a problem for Kirk, who begins to turn on the charm. The kids are really freaky and play violent games and won't listen to reason. Why after 300 years they have not evolved any further than they have is a real mystery. Will the condition that is affecting Miri be circumvented? That is the question.
