Tape Episode 75 of the Paramount Pictures Star Trek: The Original Television 0Series - Uncut and Original
Dr. McCoy, the Federation starship USS Enterprise's Chief Medical Officer, discovers he has a rare, incurable disease called xenopolycythemia (as in polycythemia) and has only one year to live.
The Enterprise is targeted by ballistic missiles, but they easily destroy the primitive weapons, tracing their point of origin to a large asteroid called Yonada. They find Yonada is on course to collide with the heavily-populated planet Daran V within a solar year, which would be catastrophic. They scan the asteroid and find it has a breathable internal atmosphere. Captain Kirk, First Officer Spock, and Dr. McCoy transport over to investigate. They discover that Yonada is populated by a highly religious society of humanoids that worship their Oracle. The High Priestess, Natira, orders the capture of the three and takes them to the Oracle. Kirk attempts to explain that they have come in peace to stop Yonada's pending impact, but the Oracle threatens them with severe punishment if they are found to be enemies, and sends an electric shock that knocks the three men unconscious.
When they wake, they find themselves in a prison. An old man approaches them, having heard of their arrival, and tells him that he has seen the outside of the asteroid, stating "...for the world is hollow and I have touched the sky". Suddenly the old man goes into shock and dies, and McCoy identifies a subdermal device responsible for causing the shock. Natira arrives, explaining that the Oracle punished the man for speaking the "forbidden words". They learn that all those on Yonada have been implanted with obedience devices. Reminding them again of the punishment for disobedience, Natira allows the three to explore the asteroid. McCoy stays with Natira, as the two are beginning to develop a relationship, while Kirk and Spock discover the asteroid is really a generation ship housing millions of beings of the Fabrini race; the ship was launched over 10,000 years prior to escape the destruction of their world by a supernova, but this knowledge has been lost to the current residents, unaware of the nature of their world. Kirk and Spock attempt to figure out who the Oracle is, but are caught again when Natira privately prays to the Oracle about taking a vow of marriage with McCoy. The Oracle states it would allow the marriage, but only if Kirk and Spock leave Yonada, and that McCoy is implanted with an obedience device. McCoy insists they leave, revealing his terminal condition to them, even knowing that Starfleet will likely destroy the generation ship before it can strike Daran V.
McCoy and Natira marry, and Natira allows him to look at the "Book of the People", a sacred text. McCoy discovers the book contains a large amount of information on Fabrini technology and other star systems, and attempts to contact the Enterprise to share this information. The Oracle detects this communication, activates the obedience device, and terminates the communication. Kirk and Spock transport back to Yonada to find McCoy unconscious. Spock operates on McCoy to remove the device, while Kirk tries to explain the truth to Natira. Natira starts to believe Kirk but the Oracle actives her device, nearly killing her. McCoy, awake, works to remove her device while Kirk and Spock now seek the Oracle, assured it is an automated system. They are able to bypass the Oracle's defense, shutting down the computer, while retrieving the Book of the People and further discovering the navigational controls for the generation ship. They are able to correct Yonada's course to avoid collision with Daran V and to a new homeworld which they will arrive at within the year. Further, while scanning the formerly concealed database, they find a cure for McCoy's condition among other technology advances. McCoy, after a successful operation, says goodbye to Natira, hoping to see her again once Yonada arrives at its new homeworld.
