Star Trek: The Original Series Season 1

Episode 29 "Operation, Annihilate!"

Stardate 3287.2: An unexplainable epidemic of mass insanity has destroyed a line of civilizations through a portion of the Federation. The Deneva system, where Kirk's brother and his family lives, appears to be the next likely victim. When the Enterprise arrives, Kirk and a landing party beam down only to encounter a hostile reception and to discover that Kirk's brother Peter is dead. Aboard the Enterprise, Peter's widow gives Kirk information about the alien creatures on Deneva, but she dies soon after leaving many unanswered questions. After beaming down to investigate further, Spock is attacked by a flying creature and is infected by the same madness as everyone else on Deneva. McCoy soon discovers that these flying, single-celled creatures are separate parts of a single entity and are the cause of the madness. Tentacles from the parasites grow around a victim's nervous system and inflict considerable pain while forcing the victim to obey the entity. Spock, barely able to control the pain, returns to duty. He beams down to the planet and manages to capture one of the parasites for analysis aboard the Enterprise. After many tests they discover that the parasite creatures are vulnerable to intensely bright light, but when Spock is subjected to the same light which destroyed the parasite he is blinded in the test. Soon after, McCoy realizes that only ultraviolet light is necessary to destroy the parasites, but this information comes too late for Spock. Kirk orders satellite flares positioned around the planet which are able to fully eradicate the parasites and free the Devevans from their control. Surprisingly, Spock's blindness turns out to be temporary. The brightness of the Vulcan sun caused the development of an inner eyelid which protects Vulcans from intense light. With his sight fully restored, Spock returns to his station on the bridge
