The Deadly Years
The Enterprise crew learns a valuable lesson… getting older sucks! Kirk, McCoy, Scotty, Spock, Chekov, and Lt. Galloway beam down to do a routine medical check of some scientists on Gamma Hydra 4. The discover the science team has suffered from rapid aging and all but two of them are dead. Soon after returning to the Enterprise the landing party begin to display signs of rapid aging, with the exception of Chekov, who remains unaffected the entire time. Kirk and crew become exceedingly incompetent and the Commodore onboard decides to relieve Kirk from command and bring them to the Star Base where he is the commanding officer. After a lengthy and embarrassing trial scene Kirk is removed from command. The Commodore decides to cross the neutral zone to make a faster arrival at Star Base 10. They are of course attacked and the Commodore buckles under pressure and freezes leaving the ship open to attack from over 10 Romulan war ships. Kirk, Spock and McCoy make a link between Chekov’s adrenaline and his lack of symptoms and make a daring move to try adrenaline therapy. Of course it works and Kirk takes command and gets the Enterprise out of trouble before it is destroyed.
The episode truly doesn’t have a great deal of substance but allows the four affected crew members to stretch as actors and play a person across a wide age span.
