While delivering supplies to a penal colony, an inmate escapes to the Enterprise and demands sanctuary. He is Dr. Simon Van Gelder (Morgan Woodward), assistant to the director of the colony, Dr. Adams (James Gregory). Answering questions causes great pain, but Van Gelder begs not to be returned and hints at horrors committed against patients by Dr. Adams. Kirk beams down to investigate while Spock tries to break through Van Gelder's wall of agony. As a result, he is the first participant in a Vulcan Mind Meld.

While on a star charting mission, the Enterprise encounters a luminescent, radioactive cube. When Kirk is forced to destroy it, an enormous ship of pulsating lights appears, commanded by the ominous Balok (Clint Howard). Balok condemns the Enterprise crew to death, and seeing no escape, Kirk chances a desperate bluff. Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy debuts in this episode and the beloved triad of Kirk's leadership, Spock's logic, and McCoy's humanity is now complete.

Stardate 3012.4
This two-part episode delves into the history of the Enterprise under a different captain and crew. Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy) is accused of mutiny when he takes control of the Enterprise and kidnaps the former starship commander, Captain Christopher Pike (Jeffrey Hunter), who has been horribly disfigured and paralyzed in an accident. Spock sets the ship on a course for Talos IV, a planet ordered off-limits under penalty of death. He then turns himself in for court martial, leaving Captain Kirk (William Shatner) to face the possibility of sentencing his First Officer - and best friend - to death.

Years before, when Pike commanded the Enterprise, the Talosians kidnapped him to strengthen their race. They used a human girl, Vina (Susan Oliver), the survivor of an earlier ship crash on the planet, to tempt him but Pike refused to cooperate, making the Talosians realize that humans were of little use to them.
