review by
Mike Haberfelner




The Enterprise passes through a solar system - to find all of its inhabitants just wiped out. And eventually, the ship itself comes under attack and it nearly destroyed by a space probe called Nomad (voiced by Vic Perrin), which seizes its attack only and agrees to be beamed aboard only when Captain Kirk (William Shatner) contacts it. Thing is, the probe mistakes Kirk for its creator and thus has blind trust in him. It's now up to Kirk and company to find out what the probe even wants - all they know is that it's highly destructive ... and really creates chaos on the Enterprise, which includes killing Scotty (James Doohan), then reviving him, wiping Uhura's (Nichelle Nichols) brain and eradicating any number of security personnel. Now looking up the history books suggests that Nomad was actually created on earth and sent to space - but just to explore, there's no explanation for its destructive powers. So Spock (Leonard Nimoy) uses the Vulcan mind probe to find out that Nomad has actually been fused with another space probe from another planet, and now it's its directive to destroy all imperfect life - like all humanoids. It hasn't massacred the Enterprise's crew yet because it believes Kirk is its infallible creator (due merely to the fact that its creator had a similar name), but it's only a matter of time until it will find out, so the only way to avert disaster is to turn Nomad's logic against itself ...

 

Now a not even man-sized metal box with a few lights dangling from the ceiling isn't exactly the best villain to ever grace Star Trek - but other than that, the episode's pretty solid: There's a good build-up of suspense, both script and acting hit the right tone of seriousness, and the regulars are put to good use without falling out of character. Not one of the best episodes mind you, but a good effort nevertheless.
