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

Trivia

This episode contains confirmation of a much-speculated upon topic: whether the Enterprise could separate the Engineering section and warp nacelles from the primary vessel. Mentioned in Kirk and Scotty's conversation by communicator, half-way into the show, after Kirk beams down to the planet with an away team, and Scotty takes a seat in the captain's chair on the bridge.

The Great God Vaal
2 November 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Alien worlds under some kind of thought control process was a popular theme for Star Trek stories. In this episode the natives are happy in a paradise where all is provided for it, that is unless they do not feed the beast. It's power source is that of the simple Eloi type creatures who live on the planet and gather fuel for it. They call it Vaal.

It's a fearsome looking dragon like statue with a mouth and a roar and defensive capabilities that is keeping the Starship Enterprise at bay. Nevertheless William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and a few other beam down.

Inside this thing when it's at rest is just a very sophisticated computer left millions of years ago by alien creatures who wanted to keep this world a Garden Of Eden.

I'd say the prime directive was good and broken here, but all in a worthy cause.
