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.

Stardate 1512.2
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.
