Episode Info

After a command made during a crisis situation leads to the death of one of the Enterprise's crew members, Captain Kirk is accused of murder and subject to a court-martial in this episode of the enduring science fiction television series. During a dangerous storm, Kirk ordered the ejection of one of the ship's ion pods; it later became clear that the pod contained Lt. Commander Finney, who subsequently perished in space. Kirk defends his actions as following standard safety procedure, but is contradicted by the computer's records. Even more damning, numerous witnesses testify to past conflicts between Kirk and the younger officer. Kirk and his attorney must somehow convince the panel that Finney's death was the result of computer error, or else the Captain will lose his command and face punishment for murder.
