Synopsis: The U.S.S. Enterprise responds to a distress call from a group of scientists exploring the ruins of a dead civilization on Camus Two; the leader of the expedition, Dr. Janice Lester, knew Captain Kirk when they were together for a year at Starfleet, but his world of starship captains doesn't admit women. When they are alone, Dr. Lester uses an alien machine on the planet to switch bodies with Kirk, and assumes his identity. Dr. McCoy determines that the scientists on Camus Two have been poisoned by celebium radiation.

After a mind meld with Dr. Lester, Commander Spock believes her claims that she is really Captain Kirk trapped in her body, but Lester, in Kirk's body, charges Spock with mutiny. As more of his officers turn against him, Dr. Lester becomes hysterical and loses her hold on Kirk's body; the alien transferral reverses itself, and they both find themselves in their correct bodies.
