PLOT SUMMARY...

The Enterprise arrives at a planet, Eminiar VII, that's been engaged in a computer-run war, with another planet, for 500 years.

QUICK SCAN...

This episode features a major violation of the "Prime Directive" by Captain Kirk. David Opatoshu ("Exodus") is superb as Anan 7, the chief governmental official on Eminar. Barbara Babcock ("Hill Street Blues") is beautiful and sympathetic as Mea 3. This episode has a good balance between action scenes and philosophical debates. This is one of the better episodes depicting computer-run societies.
