On a mining planet, more and more miners are killed by some monster that can apparently eat its way through stone and is incredibly quick too. So it's not long before the mine's chief engineer Vanderberg (Ken Lynch) calls in the Enterprise for help. Captain Kirk (William Shatner) and his First Officer Spock (Leonard Nimoy) beam down to investigate, and before long they have figured out that the monster has to be a silicon-based lifeform - and they figure out a way to kill it.

Eventually, the creature attacks Kirk, but he shoots and injures it, upon which the creature makes a retreat. Later, Kirk and the creature meet again, but this time the creature - which looks like a cross between a blob and a rug - refrains from attacking when it sees Kirk is armed. Spock joins minds with the creature and soon learns it's a Horta, the last of its race that just waits for thousands and thousands of new Hortas to hatch, which are currently inside silicon balls - their eggs - that can be found pretty much everywhere on the planet. By and large, the Horta are peaceful beings, but the miners have destroyed a few hundred Horta eggs - which is when this Horta started to attack.

Kirk tells Doctor McCoy (DeForest Kelley) to heal the creature - in which he really succeeds - then brokers a deal for peaceful co-existence between the Horta and the miners - which seems to be perfect, since the Horta can dig faster than any device created by humans ...

 

Despite a ridiculously looking monster and utterly unconvincing mine-sets, this is a rather good episode, mainly because quite some effort was put into creating a convincingly creepy atmosphere in the unconvincing mines, which also makes up for the episodes relative lack of action. Only the ending is a bit too sugar-coated ...
