Episode Info

The starship Enterprise faces imminent destruction as a result of its contact with an enigmatic man known as Lazarus in this episode of the 1960s science fiction series. The occurrence of a number of unusual astronomical phenomena near a seemingly deserted planet leads Captain Kirk and the others to investigate the planet's surface, where they first meet Lazarus. The man claims that these phenomena are the effects of attacks on his life by himself -- or, rather, by a murderous alternate version of himself that is inhabiting an antimatter universe. The Enterprise crew initially doubts his story and his sanity but becomes more convinced when the strange phenomena continue, causing dangerous turbulence that threatens not only Lazarus' life, but the Enterprise itself.
