The Enterprise arrives at planet Angosha III, which wants to join the Federation. While their PM Naydor stresses pacifism and intellectualism, prisoner Roga Danar's escape from a maximal security facility is reported; the Enterprise undertakes to capture his cargo vessel, but it eludes the starship at an asteroid; after more tricks, the prisoner is beamed aboard and stunned with great difficulty. Danar has no life signs, his record is military. It is found he was in a program to turn unknowing Angoshan volunteer army recruits into perfect soldiers, by chemical and mind programming. He means it when he says he would rather die then return as prisoner, proves a master at escape and then surprises again... Written by
