On their way thgough the universe, Starship enterprise passes a planet that looks just like earth (with all the continents in place and everything), so the usual suspects - Captain Kirk (William Shatner), Mister Spock (Leonard Nimoy), Doc Bones McCoy (DeForest Kelly) and Janice Rand (Grace Lee Whitney) and 2 crewmen in red Sweaters - beam down to the planet ... that just looks like earth, the 1960's, with one difference, there are no grownups anywhere to be seen, and the children who are on the planet seem to despise our little survey team ... except for teenage Miri (Kim Darby), a girl on the verge of puberty, who takes an instant liking into Kirk and thus fills our heroes in on what happened: 300 years ago the grownups tried to develop a serum that would give them eternal youth ... but the serum malfunctioned and infected all grownups with some sort of plague that first turned them violent, then killed them. For the children on the other hand the serum worked just fine, making them to age a mere month every 100 years ... until of course they reach puberty.

Problem is ... the plague now has affected our survey team too, and infected they can of course not go back to the Enterpise but have to find an antidote down on the planet ... and everybody turns increasingly violent. Another problem is that the food supplies on the planet are now (after 300 years - a triumph in food storage and conservation in itself) running awfully low for the children that means that Kirk has to get help for them, but to get help he has to get back to the ship (which he can't).

and yet another problem: Miri sees there's something going on between Kirk and Janice Rand, and the typical spurned lover, she turns to the teenage leader of the kids, Jahn (Michael J.Pollard, actually 27 at the time this was filmed but still convincing as a kid), to help her avenge herself ... and Jahn has the great idea of stealing our heroes' communicators, so, when developing the antidote, they have no help from the ship's computer.

But in the end, Kirk manages to convince Jahn and company of the righteousness of their undertaking, while Bones, who can't pull through much longer, tests the untested antidote on himself ... and wouldn't you know it, it works. Soon our heroes (even the guys in the red sweaters) are back on their ship, and send the kids all the help they need ...


Funny little story that is (of course) not half as meaningful as the producers would have liked it to be. However it must have impressed writter Stephen King terribly, as he turned this episode - with only minor changes - into his short story Children of the Corn, that eventually made it into a long running movie series.

All that said, from today's point of view, the scene where Kirk sweettalks pre-pubescent Miri is nothing short of creepy ...
