U.S.S. Exeter's transporter coordinates were locked on
an Omegan village. Kirk, Spock, Dr. McCoy, and Raintree
inspected the townsite after "beaming" into Omega. It
seemed the "Old West" had come alive again - in this frontier
settlement. The natives, however, were Oriental in appearance.
Kirk's party arrived in time to witness a public
execution. A white fur-clad savage knelt, waiting the fall of
a headsman's ax - while a female of his tribe struggled with
her captors. The crew, accustomed to swift change in time
and place, saw violence - in any form - as man's enemy.
