Star Trek: The Original Series Season 2

Episode 19 "A Private Little War"

Stardate 4211.4: Spock and McCoy beam down to a planet that Kirk surveyed 13 years ago. At that time the natives were primitive but peaceful. On this visit, however, he is shocked to learn that the village natives have developed flintlock firearms and are engaged in a war against the hill people. When the landing party is discovered, Spock is wounded and hurriedly beamed back to the Enterprise. Kirk returns to the planet with McCoy in an effort to contact the captain's old friend, Tyree, who is now the leader of the hill people. But just after their arrival, Kirk is attacked and bitten by a Mugato. McCoy finds the hill people and has Kirk taken to their camp. Nona, a Kahn-ut-tu witch doctor and Tyree's wife, is able to save Kirk's life during a healing ceremony. After a quick look inside the village, Kirk and McCoy discover that the Klingons are giving the villagers the flintlocks so that they can kill the hill people more effectively. Nona, seeing that the Enterprise officers have the means to give the hill people superior weapons, becomes angry when Kirk refuses to help in that manner. Instead, the captain believes that stability can be achieved if they arm the hill people with the same type of weapons that the Klingons give the villagers. His reasoning is that a balance of power is the only way to preserve both sides. Nona's ambition causes her to steal a phaser and give it to the villagers. The villagers, however, distrust her motives and kill her. Though she was greedy and lusting for power, Tyree loved her, and her death finally motivates him to fight. When Kirk contacts the ship McCoy learns that Spock survived the surgery and is healthy, much to the doctor's surprise. Tired and ready to leave, they both beam back to the ship
