THE PLOT:

While under direct orders from an Ambassador the Enterprise ignores direct orders to stay away from a war torn planet who is at war with a neighboring planet. But it seems odd that there is no devastation on the surface until they realize that they use computer to fight their war and causalities calming and peacefully walk into death chambers.

Things turn ugly when the Enterprise become a computer causality and the crew is ordered to beam down to die. But Kirk is not one to lay down and die so this planet is under a new kind of war, with Kirk. Which makes war the old fashion way.

THE OPINION:

An interesting message hidden within the plot, even though there is no monsters in this one, it's still a pretty cool episode and worth watching.
