Storyline

The Enterprise deliberately crosses the Neutral Zone, on Kirk's orders, into Romulan space and is promptly surrounded by Romulan warships, each equipped with a "cloaking device" that renders it undetectable. Spock betrays the apparently irrational and paranoid Kirk to the Romulan commander, a woman who is obviously attracted to Spock. A deadly game between Kirk, Spock and the Romulans risks not only the Enterprise but the tenuous cease-fire between the Romulans and the Federation. Written by Tom D.

Trivia

Joanne Linville's Romulan Commander is given the name Dion Charvon in a 1977 Star Trek novel called The Price of the Phoenix, by Myrna Culbreath and Sondra Marshak. In the 1999 novel Vulcan's Heart by Josepha Sherman, her name is given as Liviana Charvanek. It's not clear if either novel is "canonical" but Liviana Charvanek seems to have higher authority and credibility. See more »

Goofs

Once Kirk gets infiltrated into the Romulan spaceship disguised as a Romulan centurion, guards speak to him in English rather than in their own the Romulan language. See more »

Strategically Interesting
3 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After the ludicrous "Spock's Brain," this is a decent episode, worthy of praise. Kirk puts the Enterprise in grave danger by crossing into the neutral zone. Soon the Romulans are at the door, threatening to take over Kirk's ship. Their ships have been cloaked which poses a threat to the Federation. Kirk responds by threatening to blow up the Enterprise if they don't back off. This leads to an exchange of crew members, Spock going to the Romulan ship. While there, he strikes up a romantic thing with the beautiful Romulan commander. Vulcans and Romulans come from the same roots and she sees him as a potential ally. The reason this works so well is that we are not privy to what Kirk and Spock are up to. Kirk seems utterly insane and Spock seems to be a traitor, but we know, don't we? It is interesting to see someone beside Kirk putting the moves on an attractive female alien. The conclusion is satisfactory and worth the wait.
