In our story, the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire are on the brink of war. The Enterprise has been sent to the planet Organia to stop the Klingons from claiming it for strategic advantage. Alas, the Klingons, led by the ruthless Commander Kor, march in, claim the locals as subjects and eventually capture both Kirk and Spock. Fortunately for all involved, the Organians turn out to be far more than peacenik pushovers and take matters into their own hands.
I enjoyed this episode, one of my favorite so far. The verbal sparring between Kirk and Kor is great fun and I like the fact that both Federation and Kligons get their comeuppance from beings they had grossly underestimated.
