In orbit around an unknown planet, the Enterprise experiences a moment of "nonexistence" - all natural laws are suspended. On the planet's surface, Kirk encounters Lazarus (Robert Brown), who blames this disturbance on his evil enemy. Aboard the starship, Lazarus steals vital dilithium crystals, and we learn that Lazarus' look-alike foe is from an anti-matter universe. If Kirk can't prevent them from meeting, both universes will be annihilated!

This episode features a rare angle of the Enterprise firing phasers from orbit.
