Star Trek: The Original Series Season 1

Episode 13 "The Conscience of the King"

Stardate 2817.6: The Enterprise arrives at Planet Q, summoned by Dr. Thomas Leighton who claims to have developed a new synthetic food. When Kirk beams down he discovers that Leighton's real intention was to inform the captain that a travelling theatrical troupe's lead actor, Anton Karidian, is actually Kodos the Executioner. Kodos, 22 years ago, was the governor of Tarsus IV when it was suddenly hit with a food shortage. In an effort to relieve the crisis, Kodos executed 50 percent of the population. In the aftermath, Kodos was thought to have died but no body was ever recovered. Irritated at Leighton's actions and satisfied that Kodos is dead, Kirk beams back to the ship and prepares to leave orbit. Then, when Leighton dies of mysterious circumstances, Kirk arranges for the troupe's transportation to abandon them and then takes them aboard the Enterprise so that he may study Karidian while taking them to Benecia Colony. Soon after, Lieutenant Riley is poisoned and nearly dies. Concerned by the captain's growing obsession with Karidian, Spock searches the computers for information and learns that Kirk, Riley, and the late Thomas Leighton were the last remaining witnesses to the atrocities of Kodos and that all other witnesses have been systematically murdered when the theatrical troupe was nearby. When Riley overhears McCoy's report and learns that Kodos, a.k.a. Anton Karidian, killed Riley's parents, he enters the ship's theater intent on killing Karidian. Kirk intervenes and arrests Karidian but then learns that it is Lenore, Karidian's daughter, who has been killing the witnesses. She takes a phaser from a security guard and threatens Kirk, but just as she fires Karidian steps in front of the captain and dies. Horrified from killing her own father, Lenore goes insane
