Storyline

As Kirk, McCoy, Sulu and geologist D'Amato beam over to a geologically unique planet, an attractive woman suddenly appears in the transporter room and, with but a touch, kills Transporter Chief Wyatt. They're not quite sure who or what she is. They also find themselves unable to contact the Enterprise, which has been flung nearly a thousand light years across the galaxy. The woman soon re-appears, both on the Enterprise and on the planet, touching/killing D'Amato and Engineer Watson. While the landing party faces extermination from this mysterious woman, the Enterprise, endeavoring to return, faces possible destruction from a subtle malfunction administered to their warp engines.

Goofs

Left in charge of the ship, Mr. Spock uncharacteristically browbeats everyone on board just for being human (seemingly not free of emotions as he's always claimed). Given that he's the science officer and that the Enterprise orbits a planet whose very existence is inexplicable, it's reasonable to hypothesize that he's getting back at Kirk for leaving him out of the away mission by belittling the crew at every turn, thereby becoming a character ruled by the emotion of bitterness.

Quotes

Mr. Spock: Mr. Scott, you have accomplished your task.
Lt. Cmdr. Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott: You might at least say thank you.
Mr. Spock: For what purpose, Mr. Scott? What is it in you humans...
Lt. Cmdr. Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott: [muttering] Never mind.
Mr. Spock: ...that requires an overwhelming display of emotion in a situation such as this? Two men pursue the only reasonable course of action, and yet you FEEL that something else is necessary.

The beautiful guard they left behind
26 July 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This Star Trek story has the Enterprise coming upon a seemingly deserted planet which has some strange life patterns. Almost as if life was grafted on to it as opposed to evolving naturally. But the away team of Kirk, McCoy, Sulu and a geologist is stranded when a beautiful woman gets on the Enterprise and kills the transporter technician. And then the Enterprise is hurled almost a 1000 light years away.

The beautiful woman is former Miss America Lee Meriwether and she's deadly to the touch as she kills both another Enterprise crew member on board and the geologist on the away team. Remarkable she turns up in two places light years away and causes considerable damage.

But there is a logical explanation for all this and more than Spock endeavor to find it. Her people are the Calandrans and they've left ages ago.

An interesting Star Trek saga.
