“Now hear this. Now hear this. On this week’s episode of Kirking Off, Captain Kirk under the orders of Ambassador Fox has to go force some diplomacy on the Eminiarians regardless of their Code 710 - stay away at all costs order. With Scotty in charge of the Enterprise Kirk and Spock beam down to meet Anan 7 only to realize that these people are fighting a fake war with computers where the losers have to march their citizens off into disintegration chambers. The goal, to sacrifice a few million a year, to keep everyone safe, but does the logic play out when put to the test? Is Kirk’s interference in this war morally correct? Are Anan and his fellow council members just killing off sexual competition and making up the whole damn thing? And how long will it take to reveal Ambassador Fox as a former SS on the run in South America? I present to you "A Taste of Armageddon" from Star Trek: The Original Series.”
