Stardate 2713.5
Investigating an old style distress signal, Kirk, Spock, McCoy and a landing party beam down to a planet that's identical to Earth. They find a decaying 20th Century city inhibited by only "ancient children," diseased by a life-prolonging project that killed off the adults 300 years before. Aging imperceptibly, the children contract the disease when they reach puberty. Among the rubble, Kirk discovers Miri (Kim Darby), their only hope for survival, when all are stricken with the still contagious plague.

Stardate 2817.6
Mass murderer aboard the Enterprise!

Kirk beams up Anton Karidian (Arnold Moss) and unknown to him, danger lurks in the corridors of the starship. Could Karidian be Kodos the Executioner, thought to have died 20 years ago? When Karidian's Shakespearean acting troupe performs, beware...the play's the thing!

Watch closely for your only chance to see the Observation Deck; it's not seen in any other episode. And bid farewell to Lt. Kevin Ripley in his last appearance in STAR TREK.
