Episode 31: Metamorphosis. The crew of the Enterprise encounter an unexpected figure from their own history in this installment of the enduringly popular science-fiction television series. The meeting takes place when a shuttle transporting Federation official Nancy Hedford, along with Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, and Dr. McCoy, is captured by an unknown force. This force leads them to a planet which seems to have only two inhabitants. The first is Zefram Cochrane, the legendary inventor of the warp drive, who had long been presumed dead of old age. The second is the Companion, an alien creature that has cared for Cochrane, keeping him from aging. Indeed, it was out of concern for Cochrane's growing loneliness that the being abducted the shuttle, in order to provide him with human companionship. Kirk and the others soon realize that the alien intends to trap them on the planet for eternity, and they desperately try to find a way to escape. The character of Zefram Cochrane later served a crucial role in the feature film Star Trek: First Contact. ~ Judd Blaise, All Movie Guide

Episode 32: Friday's Child. Captain Kirk vies with a rival Klingon commander in a struggle for the allegiance of an unclaimed planet in this installment of the landmark science fiction series. The Enterprise arrives at the planet after receiving word of the Klingon's presence and finds Krag, a skillful Klingon commander, already deep in negotiations with the planet's civilization. Kirk beams down to the planet to present the Federation's side of the case. On the planet, however, he is shocked to witness the beginnings of a ritual killing and intervenes to save the intended victim, a pregnant woman named Eleen. But this intended act of kindness may turn out to be a crucial mistake: not only does it convince the planet's people that Kirk has no respect for their traditions, it is also a serious violation of Federation policy. The conflicted captain must now attempt to undo the damage and win over the planet while still protecting the woman's life. ~ Judd Blaise, All Movie Guide
