STORY SYNOPSIS

When a landing party beams down to the planet Gamma Trianguli VI, they find what appears to be an idyllic paradise. They quickly discover, however, that the planet is deadly, sporting plants that shoot thorns, rocks that explode, and incredibly accurate lightning bolts.

With a much reduced party, they encounter the planet's inhabitants. They are a peaceful, child-like people who call themselves the "Feeders of Vaal." They dress in flowers and bright paint, never reproducing because they don't age or die. Each day they "feed" Vaal offerings of food. Vaal seems to be a large serpent's head carved of rock, but is actually the terminal for an advanced, underground computer. Seeing Kirk and his party as a threat, Vaal takes them prisoner and tries to pull the U.S.S. Enterprise from orbit.

Kirk realizes that by depriving Vaal of the natives' daily offerings of food, the computer won't be able to convert the offerings into reaction mass. Thus weakened, Kirk uses the U.S.S. Enterprise's phasers to destroy Vaal. This leaves the natives on their own to discover birth, death, and the everyday ways of life.

Chekov is proud of his Russian heritage,
constantly claiming that certain things were
invented in Russia.  Some of his claims were
quite funny, like this one.

They 'conveniently' forget the Enterprise has

This is probably the worst case of breaking the
Prime Directive in the entire series.  Kirk basically
destroyes their way of life!  It would be interesting
to revisit this planet after several years to see
what's become of the population.

Mr. Spock - Captain Kirk

It does have an amusing ending.
It's amazing how many biblical references
there were in the series.
