While investigating the disappearance of the USS Ariel crew, Kirk and company uncover a world where everything is perfect—a little too perfect.

In this episode of Saturday Morning Trek, hosts Aaron Harvey and Joe Slepski take you on a side journey through the works of the episode’s writer, David P. Harmon, to find out where Happy Days originated, the influence of The Magnificent Seven on Star Trek, and, of course, we answer the pressing question, "What is Brett Summers famous for?" Oh yes, and we also find out what happened to the crew of the Ariel.

So get your DVDs, Blu-rays, or Netflix ready, grab a bowl of Quisp cereal, and join us in the wood-paneled den for this hybrid review and watch-along!
