Star Trek: The Original Series Season 2

Episode 5 "The Apple"

Stardate 3715.0: Kirk and a landing party beam down to investigate Gamma Trianguli VI and to make contact with its natives. The planet seems like a paradise until they discover plants that shoot deadly needles, exploding rocks, and highly accurate lightning bolts. When they try to beam up, Scott informs them that something on the planet has crippled the Enterprise's power and has made the transporter useless. When they finally meet the natives they discover them to be peacefully naive but immortal humanoids who live in primitive conditions and rely on what vegetation they have for food. Their society is created for them by Vaal, a rock formation looking much like a serpent's head. Upon further investigation, Vaal is found to be a highly sophisticated and powerful underground computer which needs daily food offerings from the natives to survive. Finding the Enterprise people a threat to the stability of the culture it supports, Vaal begins to slowly pull the Enterprise from its orbit. In order to eliminate the landing party it tries to teach the natives to kill but with poor results. With only hours until the Enterprise is destroyed, Kirk rounds up all of the natives and prevents them from feeding Vaal. The machine taps its energy reserve, but Kirk counters by having the Enterprise fire its phasers at Vaal's force field. After Vaal dies the natives wonder how they will survive. Kirk, however, is convinced that the natives are better off without Vaal and are now free to develop a culture of their own
