Storyline

Having found a Federation colony of 100 people completely destroyed, Kirk and the Enterprise have to deal with a nearby Klingon vessel which they believe must be responsible for the colony's destruction. When the Klingon ship is disabled, they, in turn, assume they were attacked by the Enterprise. There is obvious tension between the Enterprise crew and its Klingon enemies. Unbeknown to Kirk and his Klingon counterpart, Kang, this is the work of an alien being that gets its energy from the friction and emotions between sentient beings. The natural animosities between the two parties feed its appetites. When the creature is beamed aboard the Enterprise, it purposely creates tension among the crew, to its benefit. The situation eventually forces Kirk and Kang to work together to defeat it. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Although intra-ship beaming is routine in later incarnations of 'Star Trek' (where it is called "site-to-site transport"), this is the first and only time it is done in the original series, although it is also referenced in "Shore Leave" when Sulu notes that Spock is beaming down "from the bridge".

Goofs

As Kirk is giving instructions to Spock to scan for other ships, the orders are obviously and awkwardly spliced in from looping. See more »

Quotes

Uhura: Captain, why would... why would Chekov believe he has a brother?
Captain James T. Kirk: I don't know. But he does. And now he wants revenge for a non-existent loss.

Star Trek

A cultural hub and by far one of the most loved and respected tale, Star Trek is created by Gene Roddenberry who wrote this brilliant concept, ahead of its time and is probably why it still doesn't fail to entertain us after these many years. It was written "for the future" in many aspects as it even though is smarter, wiser and powerful it still seeks for emotion and the force that binds it all. The relation between Spock and Kirk; despite of its premise, is the most human thing in this majestic tale where the adventures are endless. Encountering this original series, at this stage makes the execution look petty and a bit loose (the small technical aspects can be negotiated) but the writing is smart, gripping and hence completely overpowers it. The series didn't seem to mature as it should have but definitely has improved on terms of implementing smarter approach, parallel plot lines and thought provoking concept.

Season 03

Contrary to expectations, second season failed to project the essential character development which would have give a perfect arc to the series and instead focused on different cases. In this final season the expectations are still higher as they have somehow glued their audience with their gripping screenplay and innovative imagination that doesn't flinch on pushing the boundaries.

Day Of The Dove

The structure of the script is fresh and intriguing enough to invest in it along with it, it also has a smarter approach and gripping screenplay that even though relies a lot upon physical sequence, is actually thought-provoking and engaging for the viewers.
