Captain Kirk's (William Shatner) friend Leighton (William Sargent) believes that the actor Karidian (Arnold Moss) is actually Kodos the Executioner, a man who at one time during a famine in his colony slaughtered half the populace to save the other half from extinction - an action that proved to be futile when provisions arrived the very next day ... which is when he faked his own death.

Kirk, who was among the eye-witnesses of the massacre, does not believe Leighton, but on the very next day, Leighton turns up murdered, and Kirk decides to give Karidian - with whose daughter Lenore (Barbara Anderson) he has become quite friendly - and his theatre troupe a lift on his Starship Enterprise.

To Spock ILeonard Nimoy), his first officer, Kirk's actions seem more and more unreasonable, so he does some investigating on his own ... and gathers more and more evidence that Karidian just might be Kodos, and that most of the eye-witnesses of the massacre were killed, invariably when Karidian's troupe was nearby, and the only two eye-witnesses still alive are Kirk himself, and Riley (Bruce Hyde), a low-grade technician aboard the Enterprise.

Sure enough, attempts are soon made on both Kirk's and Riley's life - but even Riley survives despite wearing a red sweater. Ultimately though, Riley learns who Karidian really is, and since Kodos has killed his family, Riley wants to revenge and wants to shoot him right during a performance of Hamlet Karidian and his troupe have set up for the ship's crew. Kirk can only stop him just in time. Then though, Lenore makes a confession to her father - that it was her who killed almost all the eye-witnesses of the massacre so her father could live on in peace - much to the shock of her father, who only ever killed to save others (at least that's what he thinks). When she now wants to gun down Kirk as well, Karidian jumps in betwen them and catches Kirk's bullet, finally redeeming himself for his sins ...

 

Not without its campy moments, and Arnold Moss as the villain loves to ham it up, obviously (on the other hand, he plays a stage-actor, so that's quite acceptable), this episode is on the other hand well-told (if not terribly original) and features a fw surprise twists ... and then there is of course a song by Lt Uhura (Nichelle Nichols) smuggled into the proceedings - which all results in not exactly great science fiction but an ok episode of Star Trek.
