On his first command, Spock's (Leonard Nimoy) shuttle gets too close to
a Quasar and as a result crashlands on a planet inhabited by primitives.
For the longest time, Spock tries to solve the problem with pure logic,
which gets him into conflict with Doc McCoy (DeForest Kelley) and Ltd Boma
Don Marshall), especially after he loses two crewmembers (Peter Marko,
Rees Vaughn). What's making the situation even more difficult is that the
starship Enterprise can't find the shuttle on their scanners and has to
leave way too soon to ship some plague remedy to God-knows-where on behalf
of one Commissioner Ferris (John Crawford).
Somehow chief engineer Scotty (James Doohan) makes the shuttle lift off
again in the end - naturally -, but by then it turns out it might already
be too late for the Enterprise to notice them on their scanners ... which
is when Spock does something emotional and jettisons the shuttle's fuel to
turn the shuttle's propulsion into a flare ... and of course, they are
noticed, and good Captain Kirk orders them saved no matter what ...
In the end though, Spock claims in a situation like this, it was only
logical to act emotional ...
Though at times the episode tries to hammer home its subtext - emotion
versus logic - way too bluntly, overall it's a nice story that attempts to
break out of the series' usual formula by placing several of the series
regulars - and a few new faces - in a confined space ... and wouldn't you
know it, for a change, Kirk is not one of them. And by fleshing out his
rather one-dimensional character Spock, Leonard Nimoy proves just what a
talented actor he is.
Recommended, even, no especially if you are not particularly fond of Star
