Synopsis for "The Stars in Secret Influence"
On the USS Enterprise, the ship's crew throw a surprise bachelor party for Klingon cadet Konom who is betrothed to the human Nancy Bryce. Although Captain Kirk leaves strict orders prohibiting alcoholic beverages from being served at the party, several of the attendees, including Scott Scotty, Bones and Chekov, decide to liven things up by spiking the punch. The tainted punch makes Konom unruly and he gets into a fight with his rival, William Bearclaw. Tensions escalate and before long, the entire lounge erupts into violence. Captain Kirk enters the room to see what is going on, but is waylaid by a flying wine bottle.
The following day, a bandaged Kirk addresses the crew and voices his displeasure over their poor performance. His lecture is interrupted when Spock informs him of the attack on the Klingon outpost and shows him surveillance footage of the Human/Klingon hybrid survivor.
- Ketar indicates that the ship that attacks the Klingon science outpost is a Reliant-class vessel. This is an error. The ship that attacks the outpost is actually a Miranda-class vessel. There is however a ship called the USS Reliant which is a Miranda-class vessel. The pilot of the ship, Garth of Izar, is not identified in this issue.
- Konom and Nancy Bryce's wedding is scheduled to take place on Stardate 9000.
- Nancy Bryce dresses up as an Orion slave girl for Konom's bachelor party.
- Pavel Chekov claims that the concept of the bachelor party was first invented by the Russians. Note: An ongoing joke in the television series was that Chekov often made spurious claims crediting Russia for the development of a wide range of inventions and ideas.
