Spock's Brain


Season 3, Episode 1

First Air Date:
September 20, 1968

Episode Details

The Enterpise is approached by an ion-propelled craft to Scotty's liking; from it enters a female who renders everyone unconscious, then heads straight to Spock. When the crew wakes up, McCoy finds Spock alive in sick bay, his brain being surgically removed; Doc urges they must hurry to have any chance of putting it back in, if possible at all. Desperately Kirk gambles which planet the ion-trail they tried to follow actually leads to. It is populated by a race of large cavemen who attack; when the landing party captures one, he says they are small like 'the Others' they fear as bringers of pain and delight. McCoy brings down Spock's body with a mechanical brain-substitute installed; they get in the Others' acclimatised dwellings and overpower similar female Luma by surprise, but she knows nothing, having a childish brain. Kirk's voice makes transmitter-contact but ignores where he is; an evil female overpowers the party, now captured and brought before a female panel, already wearing the controlling devices rendering all other males utterly obedient. They realize there is no superior intellect capable of handling the technology to maintain the subterranean complex, and apparently the 'controller' they refer to is actually Spock's brain, which they must find and reunite with his body....

Before dying Marvick, one of the designers of the Enterprise, takes the ship outside the galaxy where it is hopelessly lost. Once it is discovered that Miranda is blind (she had fooled them with a complicated neural sensor in her dress) and cannot guide the Enterprise, Spock mind-melds with the navigationally proficient ambassador who quickly gets the Enterprise back in known galactic space. However, while severing the mind-meld, he forgets the visor, sees Kollos, and goes insane. Because of her jealousy of Spock's relationship with Kollos, Miranda hesitates to give help, but with Kirk's urging reconsiders and helps Spock take control of his mind.

The Enterprise is ordered to pursue a group of anti-establishment idealists who have stolen a space cruiser and made off for the mythical planet Eden. When the group pushes their stolen ship beyond its limits, the Enterprise is forced to rescue them by transporting them aboard. This merry band of space-hippies includes the insane leader (Dr. Sevrin), an academy drop-out and former love interest of Chekov (Irina), and the son of a Catullan ambassador (Tongo Rad). With the Federation undergoing fragile treaty negotiations with the Catullans, Kirk is ordered by Starfleet to treat the dissidents with "extreme tolerance." Kirk finds the group and its leader too difficult to deal with while Spock maintains a deep curiosity about their ideals. Kirk appoints Spock as liaison for the group during their stay on the Enterprise. Dr. Sevrin demands to be taken to Eden, but Kirk refuses on the grounds that his orders from Starfleet dictate that the group be taken to the nearest star base. While investigating this strange group of free spirits, Dr. McCoy and Mr. Spock discover that not only is Dr. Sevrin insane, he is also the carrier for a potentially lethal disease. His desire to abandon technology and join the "primitive" inhabitants of planet Eden could well result in their destruction. As a precaution, Dr. Sevrin is quarantined, but Spock agrees to plot a course to the mythical planet of Eden in exchange for his cooperation. Meanwhile, Chekov inadvertently gives away some vital information about auxiliary control to his former classmate, Irina, and she and the rest of Sevrin's followers soon free him and commandeer the Enterprise. The group takes the Enterprise to Eden (which, to complicate matters, happens to be in Romulan space), establish orbit and steal a shuttle craft to land on the surface while the Enterprise crew is incapacitated. But the planet, while as beautiful as any of them imagined, also has a deadly side.
