Amoeba-like creatures - that are supposed to be flying braincells or something - have attacked an earth colony and, once they have attached themselves to humans, contract them with a virus that gives the humans incredible pain that first drives them literally insane then kills them. When a survey team of the Starship Enterprise investigates, one creature attacks first officer Spock (Leonard Nimoy), who back at the ship goes completely bonkers ...

However, Spock is part Vulcan and can therefore better control pain and everything, and soon he, Doctor McCoy (DeForest Kelley) and Captain Kirk (William Shatner) - whose brother and sister-in-law (Joan Swift) were already killed by the creatures and whose nephew (Craig Hundley) is in a critical state ...

Eventually, Kirk, Spock and McCoy find out that extreme exposure to the light of the sun will kill both the amoeba and the virus they are spreading - but when they test it on Spock, not only is the virus killed, he also goes blind from too intense light. It's only then that Kirk and McCoy find out the virus is actually killed by the harmless UV-ray and Spock didn't have to be exposed to all that light in the first place - but alas too late.

In the end though not only are the colonists healed and the amoeba killed, Spock also can see again, because Vulcans have a secret second eyelid he had just forgotten about (what ?).

 

From today's point of view it of course sounds weird to call UV-rays harmless - but that's about the funniest thing about the episode, the rest is pretty much routine hampered by too much cheesy dialogue but somehow saved by silly looking amoeba like creatures and some cool if underused sets of the planet's surface. In all though, a so-so episode at best.
