Plotline

Spock is infected with choriocytosis, a deadly Vulcan disease which can only be cured by strobolin. The Enterprise heads for the S.S. Huron to pick up some strobolin, but the freighter is intercepted by Orion pirates. Kirk must engage in a desperate battle to defeat the Orions and recover the medicine.
