On a diplomatic mission, the crew visit a planet that is waging a destructive war fought solely by computer simulation, but the casualties are real. When the Enterprise crew become the next casualties, Kirk must fight to save his subordinates...
An episode about the risks of sterile warfare, prevalent today as much as it was back in 1966 with drones and unmanned aircraft being controlled millions of kilometers away on the safe "home soil." You risk losing perspective, and that real people are actually dying. This is why Star Trek is good, not just because it's science fiction.
