Kirk fights for his life - and the lives of his entire crew!

While pursuing a ship which destroyed a Starfleet base, Kirk intrudes into the territory of the highly advanced Metrons, who decide to settle the conflict. Suddenly Kirk is on a deserted asteroid, unarmed, facing his opponent - an overpowering reptilian giant. If Kirk loses, the Enterprise crew will die! Can Kirk outwit this menacing foe?

Take a good look at Sean Kenney as DePaul, the Helmsman. He's the same actor who played the deformed Captain Pike in The Menagerie.

Stardate 3087.6
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.
