Star Trek: The Original Series Season 2

Episode 22 "By Any Other Name"

Stardate 4657.5: Responding to a distress call from an Earth-like planet, a landing party from the Enterprise beams down to investigate. Soon, Kirk and the others learn that those responsible for the faked message are actually aliens from the Andromeda Galaxy sent out to scout for other galaxies to conquer. They managed to penetrate the energy barrier, but their ship was destroyed in the attempt. Now they need the Enterprise in their return trip to Andromeda, a voyage which will take 300 years and many generations of Kelvans to complete. The Kelvans are ruthless in their methods, planning to eventually return to this galaxy from Andromeda and conquer all other civilizations in their path. Kirk is unable to fight the paralysis field the Kelvans employ against them, and he seems willing to accept their fate. But once out of the galaxy, Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and Scotty, the only Enterprise crewmembers not reduced to crystalline form, discover a weakness in the Kelvan's plans. Because they were forced to take human form, the Kelvan's seem to show confusion over their newly acquired human senses and emotions. In order to save the ship, Kirk and the others work on giving the Kelvan's an overload to their senses. Scotty gets one of the Kelvans drunk while Kirk makes advances towards the Kelvan female, Kelinda, which makes the Kelvan leader, Rojan, extremely jealous. McCoy injects one of the other Kelvans with an irritant, claiming it to be vitamins, which causes him to be quarrelsome. A fight breaks out between Rojan and Kirk over Kelinda, and Kirk manages to convince Rojan that because of they're exposure to humans the Kelvan descendants that finally reach Andromeda will be so alien to other Kelvans that they will be considered invaders. Rojan accepts Kirk's offer of help from the Federation, and McCoy suggests that the planet they took refuge on would make a perfect place to begin their own colony
