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

Transporter beams cannot penetrate shields, yet Kirk is able to beam to the Romulan flagship and back. This means that the Enterprise and the Romulan warships have their shields down, an unlikely scenario with hostile warships facing one another. See more »

Exceptionally interesting and keeps you guessing
8 December 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I really liked this episode. The plot was pretty exciting plus it gave Spock a big chance to stretch himself as a character--without McCoy or Shatner tagging along. Also, any episode with the Romulans is great fun, as they were in many ways a more dangerous and less stupid foe than the Klingons.

The episode begins with Kirk behaving very erratically. He even orders the ship into Romulan space and nearly starts a war. It seems that the Captain has gone mad and the Romulans take possession of the ship. At the same time, Spock becomes very chummy with the Romulan commander, a sexy lady who seems determined to climb into Spock's trousers. I'd like to say more, but it really would spoil the suspense. Just let me say that there is a lot more to the story than this and the show is both interesting and keeps you guessing.
