ORIGINAL AIRDATE: OCTOBER 20TH, 1966
Gust Star: Kim Darby, Michael J. Pollard,

THE PLOT:

The crew find a planet that mirrors Earth, including the contanents themselves. Dying to explore this copy of the Earth, they arrive of a place that looked like the sixties and devoid of life.

Doctor McCoy is attacked by a strange man while looking at a broke tryke. The strange man dies shorty afterwords. They discover the place is full of nothing but children, due to a strange virus that infects adults, first driving them mad, then killing them. The away team has been exposed and it's a race against time to find a cure of join the grumps as monsters.

THE OPINION:

Cool story, if draggy at points. This is the first really dramatic episodes of the series, that shows the passion of the crew and that whole "BONK BONK! On the head" got annoying fast.
