The USS Enterprise explores the center of the galaxy, looking for the heart of creation. When a matter-energy whirlwind grips the ship, a satyr calling himself Lucien appears and saves them. Lucien takes Kirk, Spock and McCoy to the magical, alternate dimension planet of Megas-Tu, but when the Megans discover the presence of humans, they put them on trial - the same way as they themselves were when they visited Earth centuries earlier in Salam, Massachusetts.
