(written from a Production point of view)
Out in deep space, the spaceship Enterprise, under the command of Captain James T. Kirk, lay hove-to under emergency conditions!
McCoy brings an injured crewman to Certax for medical care, but penal colony inmates take the ship.
"Someone's paying Certax a visit. Must be official... only a nut would want to take a holiday here!"
- - A guard
"You. Show Kelly and Mendoza what to do. Or should I shoot the Captain?"
"Go to blazes! Who's going to work this ship if you kill him?"
- - Jarman and Spock
"McCoy – as a non-combatant doctor, you pack a mean armoury!"
- - Scotty
- Kirk and Uhura are the only crew members to wear red; everyone else wears blue.
Setting and technology
