Trapped there, the crew discovers that there is an ancient derelict pod ship trapped with them as well.
Kirk and crew beam aboard the huge starship and learn it was once home to an insect race. They also learn that the ship's crew self-destructed rather than carry a malevolent entity to other worlds.
The entity is still alive and it beams aboard the Enterprise. Captain Kirk must find a way to get rid of the invader, without destroying his ship in the process. </td></tr> <tr class="vevent" style="text-align: center; background:#F2F2F2"><td id="ep2">2</td> <td class="summary" style="text-align: left;">"Yesteryear" </td><td>5373.4</td><td>Hal Sutherland</td><td>D.

They determine it is heading for Mantilles, home to a Federation colony governed by former Starfleet officer Bob Wesley (featured in the ST/TOS episode "The Ultimate Computer)". </td></tr> <tr class="vevent" style="text-align: center; background:#F2F2F2"><td id="ep4">4</td> <td class="summary" style="text-align: left;">"The Lorelei Signal" </td><td>5483.7</td><td>Hal Sutherland</td><td>Margaret Armen</td><td>September 29, 1973</td></tr><tr><td class="description" style="border-bottom:3px solid #E6A173" colspan="6"> Investigating a sector of space where starships have disappeared every 27 years, the Enterprise finds a race of beautiful women living on the planet Taurus II.
While in the Taurean system signals begin to affect the male crew, causing them to hallucinate. Captain Kirk, Spock, Doctor McCoy, and Lieutenant Carver beam down to the source of the signals.
After arriving on the planet they are taken prisoner by the Taurean women. The landing party begins to age rapidly as a result of life-draining headbands they are forced to wear.
On board the Enterprise, Uhura has taken command due to Scotty's irrational behavior. Uhura orders an all-female landing party to transport down to rescue the men. </td></tr> <tr class="vevent" style="text-align: center; background:#F2F2F2"><td id="ep5">5</td> <td class="summary" style="text-align: left;">"More Tribbles, More Troubles" </td><td>5392.4</td><td>Hal Sutherland</td><td>David Gerrold</td><td>October 6, 1973</td></tr><tr><td class="description" style="border-bottom:3px solid #E6A173" colspan="6"> While the USS Enterprise escorts two robot cargo ships carrying quintotriticale, a new seed grain, to famine stricken Sherman's Planet, it encounters a Klingon battlecruiser pursuing a Federation scout ship. When the Enterprise rescues the pilot, the Klingons attack with a new energy weapon and demand that the pilot be handed over to them.
The pilot turns out to be Cyrano Jones, an intergalactic trader well known to Kirk and crew from "The Trouble With Tribbles". The Klingons desperately want Jones for introducing the tribble to Klingon planets where it has become a major pest, and for stealing a glommer, an animal the Klingons were breeding to prey on the tribble.
Kirk expresses sympathy for the Klingons' plight but refuses to hand over Jones, a Federation citizen.
Jones is now selling tribbles genetically engineered to omit their ordinarily unrestrained multiplicative proclivities. Dr. McCoy discovers that although Jones' "new" tribbles don't reproduce, they still have ravenous appetites. Instead of reproducing, they now grow hugely fat.
Kirk and Spock manage to counter the Klingon weapon. Now at a disadvantage, the Klingons offer to settle for just the glommer. Kirk agrees and returns it—along with several well-fed (and huge) tribbles that scare it away. McCoy injects the remaining tribbles on the Enterprise with a serum to slow down their metabolic rate. They are finally "safe". </td></tr> <tr class="vevent" style="text-align: center; background:#F2F2F2"><td id="ep6">6</td> <td class="summary" style="text-align: left;">"The Survivor" </td><td>5143.3</td><td>Hal Sutherland</td><td>James Schmerer</td><td>October 13, 1973</td></tr><tr><td class="description" style="border-bottom:3px solid #E6A173" colspan="6"> Patrolling near the Romulan Neutral Zone, the USS Enterprise finds a ship manned by Carter Winston, a Federation citizen and philanthropist who has been missing for five years. </td></tr> <tr class="vevent" style="text-align: center; background:#F2F2F2"><td id="ep7">7</td> <td class="summary" style="text-align: left;">"The Infinite Vulcan" </td><td>5554.4</td><td>Hal Sutherland</td><td>Walter Koenig</td><td>October 20, 1973</td></tr><tr><td class="description" style="border-bottom:3px solid #E6A173" colspan="6"> While visiting the newly discovered planet Phylos, Lt. Sulu picks up a walking plant, called a Retlaw, and is poisoned. The alien species that inhabit the planet, who are plantlike beings, approach and save Sulu's life.
From them the crew discovers that most of the Phylosians were wiped out by a plague brought to the planet by Dr. Keniclius, a Terran scientist who survived Earth's Eugenics Wars.
A giant clone of Keniclius, named Keniclius Five, kidnaps Mr. Spock in order to clone him and create an intergalactic peacemaker, at the expense of the original Spock's life. </td></tr> <tr class="vevent" style="text-align: center; background:#F2F2F2"><td id="ep8">8</td> <td class="summary" style="text-align: left;">"The Magicks of Megas-tu" </td><td>1254.4</td><td>Hal Sutherland</td><td>Larry Brody</td><td>October 27, 1973</td></tr><tr><td class="description" style="border-bottom:3px solid #E6A173" colspan="6"> While exploring near the center of the galaxy, the USS Enterprise is caught inside an energy/matter vortex and all her computer systems fail.

Uhura is captured by the planet's master computer, who in the wake of the Keeper's death, resents being made to serve humans. After a number of unpleasant adventures and narrow escapes, Kirk succeeds in interviewing the angry computer. He convinces it that its best course is to resume business as usual, as it will be rewarded with social contact by the many guests attracted by the planet's facilities and can, in time, learn everything it could possibly want to without even being put to the inconvenience of leaving its home planet. </td></tr> <tr class="vevent" style="text-align: center; background:#F2F2F2"><td id="ep10">10</td> <td class="summary" style="text-align: left;">"Mudd's Passion" </td><td>4978.5</td><td>Hal Sutherland</td><td>Stephen Kandel</td><td>November 10, 1973</td></tr><tr><td class="description" style="border-bottom:3px solid #E6A173" colspan="6"> The USS Enterprise receives orders to arrest Federation outlaw Harry Mudd, who is accused of selling fake love crystals.
