The seeming paradise found by the Enterprise on Gamma Trianguli VI is really controlled by a computer called Vaal, which tries to destroy the Enterprise to prevent intervention from the outside.

Jack's Review
One of the great Trek demotivators you will see online pegs this episode down. "These people are so happy and beautiful...let's destroy their machine-god and teach them to kill and screw." In all fairness, the prime directive doesn't apply here since the children of Vaal's society is completely stagnant. David Soul of Starsky & Hutch makes an appearance....if you can spot him under that red/brown makeup.
