review by
Mike Haberfelner




Kirk (William Shatner), Spock (Leonard Nimoy), McCoy (DeForest Kelley) and a redshirt beam down to Capella IV to negotiate mining rights with its leader - thing is, the Capellans are a very violent and primal people with a predilection for war, much more in line with the ideals of the Klingons than with the Federation, which is why a Klingon negotiator's already on the planet, and the redshirt, when seeing the Klingon, pulls his fazer but is immediately killed by Capellan guards, upon which Kirk and company are disarmed. Now as violent as the Capellan's might be, their leader Akaar (Ben Gage) is a just and reasonable man, and ponders to decide in favour for the Federation - but the Klingon influences second-in-command Maab (Michael Dante) in his favour, so before you know it, there's a civil war at hand, and eventually Akaar is killed and Maab becomes new leader. His first order of business is to kill Eleen (Julie Newmar), the pregnant widow of Akaar, but Kirk, Spock and McCoy save her ... but suddenly find themselves on the run with a pregnant woman in tow who doesn't even trust them despite them being her saviours. Eventually, our heroes find a good spot to defend, and McCoy manages to deliver the baby. But the Capellans are not far behind. Thing is, Maab starts to distrust the Klingon - and he's very much right, as the Klingon's playing a crooked game ...

 

Now the story of this episode seems somewhat forced, and the Capellans' tradition and lifestyles don't come off as terribly believable - but at the same time it's an episode that sees Shatner, Nimoy and Kelley on top of their game, and their interactions are just priceless and show genuine chemistry. And the western-like second half of the episode actually comes like a breath of fresh air to those a bit tired of the usual sci-fi gobbledegook. Now that said, not one of the best episodes of the series, just a very enjoyable one.
