In the episode, the crew arrives at the planet Angel One to search for survivors of a Federation starship named the Odin lost years ago. As the away team negotiates with the female leadership of the planet, a virus begins to sweep through the orbiting Enterprise. All this, as a threat looms to the Federation further out in space.

The main guest star of the episode, Beata, is played by Karen Montgomery. A matte painting of one of the cities of Angel One would later be reused–in some form or another and sometimes with modifications–throughout the run of the series.
