Episode 2 While visiting the recently discovered planet Phylos, the USS Enterprise landing party discovers an apparently abandoned city. While exploring the city Sulu picks up a plant and is poisoned. As the landing party tries to save Sulu, the alien species that inhabit the planet approach and save Sulu's life. Upon further investigation of the alien creatures, who are plantlike beings called Phylosians, the crew discovers that the poison that affected Sulu was accidentally brought to the planet by a visitor who subsequently worked to find a cure. The Phylosians call this visitor "Master" and "Savior."

The landing party eventually discover that this visitor was actually a Terran scientist by the name of Dr. Starros Keniclius who has since died. Now a giant clone of Dr. Starros Keniclius, by the name of Keniclius Five, has taken his place. The giant wishes to clone Spock to create an intergalactic peacemaker. Ignoring Kirk's insistence that the Universe has become a virtually peaceful conglomeration of worlds, Keniclius Five clones Spock, crippling the Vulcan almost to the point of death. Kirk realizes the only way to save Spock is to recite aspects of Vulcan philosophy on life and death to Keniclius Five. Kirk convinces the clone that the new Spock is but a copy and not the original. The clone Spock saves the other's life through a Vulcan mind meld and the duplicate remains on the planet with Keniclius to revitalize that world's civilization.

Episode 9 While investigating the theory of creation, the USS Enterprise is caught inside an energy/matter tornado and pulled to the center of the galaxy. All computer systems fail and the crew begins to lose consciousness when a devil-like creature named Lucien appears on the bridge. The creature repairs the ship's systems and takes the crew to explore his planet, Megas-Tu, but almost immediately returns them to the ship.

The crew begin to experiment with magic after the encounter, much to Spock's dismay. The Megans begin to take notice of the crew and return to the ship in phantasm form. They return the Enterprise bridge crew to their planet in a witch-hunt trial where Lucien is accused of bringing evil to Megas-Tu.

Spock and Kirk defend the crew and Lucien, but their arguments fail and Kirk is forced to use his new magic against the prosecutor. Kirk explains that the Megans can only win if they become like the Earthlings they fear. Kirk then tells the jury that he will give his own life for an alien's rights, which impresses the Megans. They learn that Lucien was the basis for Earth's original conception of the devil, and the Megans, realizing that the Enterprise's visit to their dimension was an accident, help the crew to return to their galaxy.

Episode 17 The USS Enterprise returns to the amusement planet where the crew had once taken shore leave. The crew begin imagining their fantasies when things go wrong: McCoy envisions a southern Earth plantation, but instead the Queen of Hearts appears screaming "Off with his head!" followed by the arrival of a spear throwing deck of cards. When Uhura tries to rescue McCoy, she is captured by a hovercraft robot. McCoy informs Kirk of the dangerous situation, whereupon all crew members are recalled to the starship.

Realizing that Uhura is still trapped on the planet, Kirk attempts to contact the planet's Keeper. Kirk's landing party discovers the Keeper's tombstone, and notices that the planet, lacking the Keeper's influence, has become a dangerous world run by robots. The robots begin to pester the crew and the orbiting Enterprise.

Deep underground, Uhura tries to outwit the planet's master computer, while Kirk and Spock trick it into allowing them passage into the inner caves. The crew convince the computer of its usefulness as a peaceful and creative conscience and it ends the malfunctions on the planet and starship. While the crew returns to enjoy their shore leave, Spock continues discussions with the master computer.

Episode 8 The USS Enterprise receives orders to find Harry Mudd, a Federation outlaw, on the planet Motherlode; Mudd is accused of selling a fake love potion to miners. Upon the USS Enterprise's arrival, Mudd demonstrates the potion on a woman who Spock discovers to actually be a reptilian illusion. Angered by this the miners begin to attack Mudd, but he is rescued by the USS Enterprise. Aboard ship, and after convincing Nurse Chapel to try the potion on Spock, Mudd steals a shuttlecraft. When Chapel discovers that the potion doesn't actually work, she becomes bitter and sets out to confront Mudd. During a fight between Mudd and Chapel, special love crystals are broken near an air vent and permeate throughout the ship.

Without warning, the delayed potion begins to affect Spock. Shortly, the potion begins to affect the entire crew. Spock becomes so enamored with Chapel that he will do anything to rescue her. Kirk accompanies him to find Mudd, but are attacked on the planet by large rock creatures. Unable to transport to the vessel because of the potion's affect on the crew, Kirk uses the crystals to make the creatures become docile and loving. Eventually the potion wears off and the crew beam everyone back to the ship, but then the potion's after effects cause hatred and animosity among the crew. Mudd is placed in the brig, where he confesses to other con jobs and is once again sent away for rehabilitation.

Episode 15 The USS Enterprise receives a garbled message while exploring the dead supernova, Arachna. The only comprehensible portion of the signal, which emanates from the star Cepheus, is the word "terratin." Upon investigation the USS Enterprise encounters a planet of crystalline structure, barraged by volcanic activity. While in orbit, a flash of light passes through the ship, paralyzing the crew.

Then the crew begins to realize that all organic matter on the ship is shrinking; all body molecules are degenerating. Spock calculates that in a matter of minutes the entire crew will stand centimeters tall. By using man-made ladders, the crew gets to the bridge consoles and use their collective strength to press the transporter buttons. Kirk transports to the planet's surface and immediately grows to full size, since the transporter can change all matter to previously detailed size and shape. While on the planet, Kirk encounters a miniature city, but is shortly beamed back to the ship by the transporter's automatic settings.

Upon returning, he discovers that his crew has been transported off the ship to the planet surface. Kirk threatens the miniature city, demanding the crew's return. The leader informs Kirk that the lightning attack was the only way to get the attention of the starship, because their city is being threatened by volcanic activity. Spock discovers the Terratin natives to be mutated descendants of a missing scientific expedition; the survivors had named the planet Terra Ten. The crew is transported back to the ship, but since the Terratins cannot be restored to their original size, they and their entire city are beamed aboard the USS Enterprise to be taken to a more stable planet.

Episode 10 While exploring the Delta Triangle, where many starships have disappeared, the USS Enterprise is attacked by several Klingon vessels. During the fight, the Enterprise and a Klingon ship slip into a space-time warp where a starship graveyard is discovered to hold ships from all over the galaxy. The Klingon ship fires at the Enterprise but the torpedo is neutralized and the two ships captains are brought to a trial by the inhabitants of this dimension, called Elysia. The council is made up of all races from across the universe and led by a Vulcan, Xerius. He explains that no one has been able to escape from this area, so the descendants of the crews have learned to co-exist in a peaceful state. Violence is not permitted and all weaponry is immediately neutralized.

Scotty discovers that the timewarp is disintegrating the Enterprise's dilithium crystals, and insists that they must leave the trap soon or they will be powerless. The Klingons agree to link ships and cooperate by sharing warp power and personnel to escape. However, Spock learns that the Klingon Captain, Kor, wants to destroy the Enterprise when they break free of the time warp by using a specially calibrated explosive device in the warp drive. The Enterprise and Klingon crew celebrate their impending escape but when a Klingon slips away to plant the explosive, Kirk stops her and diffuses the bomb. The two ships leave the time warp and separate, with Kor claiming full credit for saving the two vessels.
