Star Trek: The Original Series Season 2

Episode 12 "The Deadly Years"

Stardate 3478.2: The Enterprise arrives at Gamma Hydra IV to deliver supplies but finds the colony oddly quiet. When the landing party searches for survivors, Chekov discovers the body of a man who has apparently died of old age. The only colonists who are still alive are an elderly couple who claim to be in their late twenties. When the landing party returns to the Enterprise they all begin to experience the effects of rapid aging, all except Chekov. Kirk decides to remain in orbit until an answer can be found, but Commodore Stocker, a passenger on his way to Starbase 10 to assume his new post, urges Kirk to proceed to the Starbase so that they can receive the best treatment. Because of the rapid aging, Kirk begins to show an increasing inability to command the ship. Stocker feels there is no other choice but to order a compentency hearing, and Kirk is relieved of command. Stocker then orders the Enterprise through the Romulan Neutral Zone in order to arrive at Starbase 10 as quickly as possible. The Romulans, however, are on guard against such a move and immediately attack. Meanwhile, McCoy and Spock discover that the disease is a result of radiation poisoning and that Chekov was not affected because of sudden surge of adrenaline through his body after discovering the dead body on Gamma Hydra IV. Dr. Wallace and Spock hurriedly prepare an adrenaline-based drug which Kirk decides to test on himself. The drug works, and Kirk quickly makes his way to the bridge in time to save the ship. Scott, McCoy and Spock are then treated and brought back to their proper ages
