Star Trek: The Original Series Season 2

Episode 9 "Metamorphosis"

Stardate 3219.4: Assistant Federation Commissioner Nancy Hedford had been assigned to stop a war on Epsilon Canaris III, but after contracting Sakuro's disease, she was being shuttled to the Enterprise for treatment when a powerful energy cloud pulls the shuttlecraft off course to Gamma Canaris N. After a brief investigation of the shuttle and their surroundings, Kirk and the others find a humanoid man on the planet who claims to have been marooned there several years ago. He invites them to his shelter where they eventually learn his identity; Zefram Cochrane, a native of Alpha Centauri who discovered the space warp which helped pioneer faster than light travel. Cochrane, however, was thought to have died over 150 years ago. According to Cochrane, he journeyed out into space so that he could die there, but an entity he calls The Companion found him and rejuvinated his body, keeping him young and healthy. His body does not age; thus, he is immortal. Miss Hedford, however, is becoming increasingly sick and without proper medical treatment aboard the Enterprise she will die. Cochrane tells Kirk that the Companion brought them to the planet so that he would not be alone. But, after a discussion about current galactic exploration, Cochrane feels the urge to leave the planet and he decides to help Kirk in their escape. The plan doesn't work, so Kirk tries diplomacy and uses the universal translator to talk to The Companion. Surprisingly, they learn that The Companion has a female personality and is in love with Cochrane. Kirk tells The Companion that it cannot love Cochrane because it is not human. To better understand love, The Companion enters the dying body of Nancy Hedford, merging the two personalities into a single being. The result is a woman who appeals to Cochrane. Though he is now free to leave, Cochrane decides to stay on Gamma Canaris N with Nancy and live out the remainder of his now mortal life
