A shuttle craft under Mr. Spock's command is forced to land on a hostile planet. His emotionless approach to command does not sit well with some crew members, particularly Mr. Boma who challenges Spock at every opportunity. The Enterprise and Captain Kirk meanwhile have only a short time to find the lost shuttle craft as they must deliver urgent medical supplies to Markus III in only a few days.

At the end, Uhura reports that the transporter just "beamed up five persons...alive and well." Kirk, relieved, orders: " Mr. Sulu, proceed on to course to Marcus 3, warp factor one." Kirk must immediately realize that more than five people were originally in the shuttle craft. Would it not make sense to receive a report from Mr. Spock before abandoning the planet... and possible surviving crew members? See more
