Storyline

Kirk and a landing party beam down to what seems to be an ideal, Eden-like planet. They soon find however that the planet is ruled by a powerful computer that keeps its local inhabitants - primitive and simple tribesmen - happy and healthy. With the Enterprise locked in a tractor beam and slowly being dragged into the planet's atmosphere, Kirk and Spock must find a way to disable the computer. Realizing the threat to its existence, the computer orders the tribesmen to kill the visitors. Written by garykmcd

Discard the Warp drive and Nascelles if necessary
5 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Kirk tells Scotty to do this- indicating the possibility of separating the saucer section

This never happened in the Classic series.

I wonder if this is the only such reference in the Classic series?

I have attempted Google searches

I have not been able to come up with any prior references to this

II only noticed it in a re-run on British TV.

Surely some other nerd will have seen it before ?? !!

David Soul makes a guest appearance He does a mean demonstration of smashing a head using a melon (note the presence of Melons and sun tans in paradise!)
