"Miri," one of the most popular episodes of the originalStar Trekseries, featured a couple of soon-to-be-semi-icons from two very different kinds of films from the late 1960s: Michael J. Pollard (who would appear inBonnie and Clyde) and Kim Darby (John Wayne's costar inTrue Grit). The intriguing story concerns a race of children on an Earth-like planet who are in fact 300 years old, kept pristine in the summer of their lives by a disease that also causes madness and death with the onset of adulthood. TheEnterprise's landing party, including Captain Kirk (William Shatner), Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy), and Dr. McCoy (DeForest Kelley), are instantly contaminated and forced to remain on the planet until McCoy can find an antidote. In the meantime, Darby's character, Miri, falls for Kirk and becomes jealous of his attentions toward anyone else. Easily one ofStar Trek's strongest shows, "Miri" is a must-see for Trekkers and Trekkies.--Tom Keogh

The Enterprise lands on an Earth like planet only to discover children of advanced age and all the adults gone. Great episode with a tense atmosphere where the only spot is the budget of shooting on location to explain the "Earth Like" planet.

If there is an overall weakness to the original Star Trek series, it is that the theme is often technology run amok. This not only occurs in the Federation, but on planets outside the Federation as well. In this episode, the Enterprise encounters an Earthlike planet broadcasting a distress beacon. Upon beaming down, Kirk and the landing party find only a small group of children are present and everything in ruins.   After investigation, they discover that the scientists were working on …
