Star Trek: The Original Series Season 2

Episode 6 "The Doomsday Machine"

Stardate 4202.9: The Enterprise arrives in system L374 only to find that most of the planets have been destroyed. The two inner planets are still intact, and as the Enterprise draws closer they pick up a ship's distress beacon coming from a crippled U.S.S. Constellation (NCC-1017). Kirk and a landing party beam over to the ship to investigate and find only its commander, Commodore Matt Decker, still aboard. The commodore is weakened and in a state of shock but he is able, with the help of the ship's log, to piece together what happened. A giant robot ship has wandered into the galaxy and is destroying planets in its path, digesting the debris for fuel. The Constellation, in Decker's attempt to stop the robot ship, was rendered a floating hulk. With the ship's systems failing, Decker beamed his crew down to the third planet which has since been destroyed. Kirk and Scott stay on board the Constellation to rig her for tow while the others beam back to the Enterprise. Once there, the doomsday machine returns and attacks the Enterprise, thereby cutting off communications with the Constellation. Decker rejects Spock's plan to retreat in order to warn Starfleet and assumes command of the Enterprise. He then orders the ship to attack the doomsday machine. The attack is unsuccessful, but Decker is unwilling to retreat. Kirk and Scott finally manage to get the Constellation's impulse engines working and help the Enterprise escape from the doomsday machine's tractor beam. When communications is reestablished, Kirk and Spock relieve Decker from command. Beaten but not defeated, Decker steals a shuttlecraft and kills himself while piloting it into the maw of the robot ship. Learning from Decker's idea, Kirk decides to do the same with the Constellation and has Scott rig a delay detonation device. Kirk is transported back to the Enterprise just as the Constellation detonates inside the robot ship and destroys the doomsday machine's power system
