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.

I Could Barely Stand to Look at These People
28 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Talk about an exciting new idea. A local god who is actually a computer. A hostile planet which is filled with toxic substances and exploding rocks. People with orange skin and blonde hair with no will. A god who must be appeased. A group of the Enterprise's future leaders wiped out (the old red shirt thing). Nothing new. Noting advanced. Is there a writer in the house? Perhaps Chekhov is available. Not the little guy played by Walter Koenig; the great Russian playwright. Anyway, the actors walk through this one. There is romance and, of course, sort of a Blue Lagoon kind of on the job training. Steer clear of this episode. You know everything that will happen ten minutes into it.
