And The Children Shall Lead

Star Trek ClassicStardate 5029.5: Kirk and the crew, visiting a scientific colony manned by several human families, are shocked to find that all but the children have died violently – and the children do not seem to care about anything but playing. Aboard the Enterprise, the children gradually begin to influence and take over the minds of the crew as part of a plan by their “friendly angel,” a seemingly benevolent alien called Gorgon who uses children as a means of spreading his influence, and unless he can find some way to expose Gorgon’s true intentions, Kirk will become a prisoner on his own ship.
