Stardate 4385.3: A Melkotian warning buoy is unwittingly destroyed by Kirk and the Enterprise. When Kirk beams down with a landing party, the owners of the buoy, fearing that a pointlessly violent race has entered their space, trap the Enterprise officers in a replica of Tombstone, Arizona (drawn from Kirk’s mind) and force Kirk and company to play out the roles of the Clanton Gang – doomed to lose the gunfight at the O.K. Corral at sundown.
