Plot
The Enterprise is called to a distant mining colony to investigate a series of suspicious deaths amongst the workers in this episode of the landmark science fiction series. Leading the investigation, Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock discover that the miners have been killed by the Horta, a blob-like, silicon-based life form that can emit a deadly acid. The colony calls for the creature's destruction, but the Enterprise officers object, feeling that the creature might be intelligent. While Spock attempts to initiate contact through a risky telepathic link, Kirk finds himself under increasing pressure from the colony's leaders, and he must negotiate a compromise between protecting the rare alien species and defending the mining colony's economic interests. — Judd Blaise
