The Enterprise arrives at a distant research outpost to find all the adults dead and their children eerily cheerful. No sooner are they aboard the ship than the children begin taking over, using strange powers bestowed on them by a malevolent "friendly angel." The kids make for an engagingly creepy episode as they alter the crew's perceptions to play on their worst fears, all with angelic smiles on their faces. Kirk's stiff-necked nature is well played against the manic playfulness of the kids, and legendary attorney Melvin Belli (who enjoyed a moderately busy acting career in the late '60s) does an interesting turn as the smooth-talking angel. --Jeff ShannonFrom the Back Cover:
The Enterprise arrives at Triacus to find the adults dead, their children less than interest in the fact, and a monstrously evil life-form that is using the children to invade the galaxy.
Famed attorney Melvin Belli (whose clients included Errol Flynn, Jack Ruby and Lenny Bruce) appears as Friendly Angel/Gorgan, while the role of little Steve O'Connel is played by Belli's real-life son, Caesar (now a partner in his father's firm).
Notice that there is a new rec room in this episode. It had been used in "Elaan Of Troyius" but was edited out of the show.
