Moral :
Dishonesty : Dishonesty can mislead a child, but they will never really forget what is important
YATI : At one point, Spock and Kirk take a trip in a turbolift. Strangely, neither one ever specifies a destination.
Body Count : Kirk beams two men into space accidentally. The alien bad guy may or may not be killed at the end, it's hard to say for sure.
Factoid : The Enterprise abandons two security guards on a planet in this episode, and apparently never returns to pick them up!


Investigating a remote outpost, the Enterprise finds a a group of children alive among the dead bodies of their parents. As the ship leaves it becomes clear that there is more to the children than meets the eye.
