Federation outposts destroyed by Romulans!
It's a game of cat and mouse for Kirk and the Romulan commander (Mark Lenard), whose cloaking device renders his ship invisible - and very deadly! How long can Kirk protect the Enterprise from his unseen enemy?
This is our first look at the Romulans, and we'll learn why they mysteriously resemble the Vulcans.

Kirk, McCoy, Scotty and Uhura are beaming back to the Enterprise when an ion storm causes a transporter malfunction. Instead of their own starship, they find themselves aboard a parallel Enterprise whose crew are unprincipled barbarians. The same storm has caused their malicious counterparts to beam aboard the real Enterprise! Kirk and company must find a way home before they are discovered by these alternate beings!
This episode is packed with subtle changes aboard the parallel Enterprise - can you spot them?
