Episode 1 While returning to a famine-ridden Sherman's planet with a cargo of quintotriticale, the USS Enterprise encounters a Klingon warship, commanded by Captain Koloth, who is detaining the trader Cyrano Jones. Kirk rescues Jones from the Klingon vessel and discovers him to be carrying a new breed of tribbles which have been genetically altered to slow their reproductive process. However, these tribbles are unable to resist the cargo of quintotriticale the USS Enterprise is carrying. The Enterprise crew soon realizes that the consumption causes the tribbles to grow to a tremendous size. So much so, that Jones' tribble-eating glommer is unable to devour them.

The Klingons return and demand that Kirk hand over Jones, accusing Jones of stealing the glommer from them. Instead of handing Jones over to the Klingons, Kirk returns the animal along with some of the tribbles.

Episode 2 While visiting the recently discovered planet Phylos, the USS Enterprise landing party discovers an apparently abandoned city. While exploring the city Sulu picks up a plant and is poisoned. As the landing party tries to save Sulu, the alien species that inhabit the planet approach and save Sulu's life. Upon further investigation of the alien creatures, who are plantlike beings called Phylosians, the crew discovers that the poison that affected Sulu was accidentally brought to the planet by a visitor who subsequently worked to find a cure. The Phylosians call this visitor "Master" and "Savior."

The landing party eventually discover that this visitor was actually a Terran scientist by the name of Dr. Starros Keniclius who has since died. Now a giant clone of Dr. Starros Keniclius, by the name of Keniclius Five, has taken his place. The giant wishes to clone Spock to create an intergalactic peacemaker. Ignoring Kirk's insistence that the Universe has become a virtually peaceful conglomeration of worlds, Keniclius Five clones Spock, crippling the Vulcan almost to the point of death. Kirk realizes the only way to save Spock is to recite aspects of Vulcan philosophy on life and death to Keniclius Five. Kirk convinces the clone that the new Spock is but a copy and not the original. The clone Spock saves the other's life through a Vulcan mind meld and the duplicate remains on the planet with Keniclius to revitalize that world's civilization.

Episode 3 By using the Guardian of Forever, Kirk, Spock, and the historian Erikson explore the planet Orion's past. However, upon returning to the present, no one seems to recognize Mr. Spock; the USS Enterprise first officer for the past five years has been an Andorian named Thelin. A search of the USS Enterprise's memory bank reveals that Spock, the son of Sarek and Amanda died while still a child; his death caused the couple to breakup.

Spock recalls that during his "kahs-wan" a Vulcan coming-of-age ritual Selek, Spock's distant cousin, had saved his life. Spock realizes that to put the present right again he must return to the past and become his own cousin to save himself.

Returning to the Vulcan of his childhood through the Guardian, Spock presents himself to his younger self as Selek, and subsequently saves the boy's life. In the process young Spock's pet "sehlat" is mortally injured. The boy chooses to compassionately end his pet's suffering and in doing so sets the young half-human, half-Vulcan on a path toward embracing Vulcan traditions. Upon returning to the present, Spock finds the timeline and his place on the USS Enterprise restored.

Episode 4 Responding to radio emissions near the edge of the known universe, the USS Enterprise is dragged off course by Questar M-17, an imploded negative star mass. The Enterprise manages to establish itself in orbit around Questar M-17 and encounters a strange starship inhabited by an evil shapeless alien. Further investigation reveals that the ship's engineers had failed to remove the creature before attempting to destroy their own vessel.

Eventually, the creature takes control of the Enterprise. Kirk and Spock devise a plan to steer the USS Enterprise toward Questar M-17, tricking the creature into believing that the Enterprise will be destroyed. The creature flees for its life while the Enterprise frees itself from Questar's gravity pull by employing the slingshot effect, leaving the creature to orbit forever around the star.
