(written from a Production point of view)
Far in the depths of space, the leaders and top scientists of a planet known to its inhabitants as Graktan, were gathered to watch a demonstration – of destructive discovery...
While Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock explore the planet Graktan, the Graktan defenses mistake the Enterprise for a hostile craft, leaving the mighty spaceship helpless and drifting into the gravitational pull of the system's sun.
"This is your captain speaking! We are all on the threshold of discovery – entering a planetary system unknown to man!"
- - Kirk
"Put that gun down you fool! You might as well try using a pea-shooter!"
- - Spock
