How they change
the light bulbs in the original Star Trek
will report to Captain Kirk that the light bulb in the Engineering Section is
burnt out, to which Kirk will send Bones to pronounce the bulb dead.
after checking around, notices that they have no more new light bulbs, and complains
that he can't see in the dark to tend to his engines. Kirk must make an emergency
stop at the next uncharted planet, Alpha Regula IV, to procure a light bulb
from the natives.
Spock, Bones, Sulu, and 3 red shirt security officers beam down. The 3 security
officers are promptly killed by the natives, and the rest of the landing party
back in orbit, Scotty notices a Klingon ship approaching and must warp out of
orbit to escape detection.
cures the native king who is suffering from the flu, and as a reward the landing
party is set free and given all of the light bulbs they can carry.
cripples the Klingon ship and warps back to the planet just in time to beam
up Kirk et. Al .
new bulb is inserted, and the Enterprise continues with its five year mission.
