* ProxyWar: The Klingons supplying increasingly advanced firearms to one tribe of a primitive planet, to install them as a puppet leader of that world. Another tribe, one that Kirk had met years before, begins to demand similar weapons by the end, and Kirk begins arranging a Federation-aligned alliance of tribes to oppose the Klingon-controlled ones. He even references the brush wars of the 20th century as he does so.

While Spock convalesces, Kirk and Bones beam back down to investigate this on going war. It seems those darn Klingons are at it again! They convinced one faction of natives that they could be more powerful than the others. All they needed was better weapons. As if dealing with them wasn't bad enough, there are these critters called the mugatu to contend with. Kirk gets poisoned by one. Fortunately, Bones is able to get him to Tyree's tribe, where his wife Nona (Nancy Kovack) is able to heal Kirk.

** Early in the episode, Kirk identifies Mugatu tracks. Not long after, he gets attacked by a Mugatu.
** This leads to another one--after [=McCoy=] kills the mugatu, Tyree tells him its mate will be nearby. Guess what shows up near the end.

* OurMonstersAreWeird: The mugatu looks like a cross between Franchise/{{Godzilla}} and Snowflake the Albino Gorilla. Oh, and it has a poisonous bite.

Kirk, Bones and Spock beam down to a peaceful, idyllic planet where some years previous Kirk had befriended a native called Tyree (Michael Witney). It looks like the friends may get a chance reunite, but it looks like they're going to be ambushed by another group of tribesmen armed with flintlocks. Which is odd, because this society is supposed to still be in the Bronze Age. In the ensuing melee, Spock gets shot and has to be taken back aboard the ''Enterprise''.

* GenocideBackfire: We see how this gets started.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything orgasmic thrashing and sudden climatic end]] when Nona casts a spell over Kirk's body. Also the scene where Kirk catches Nona bathing naked; the producers left in a breast shot knowing the censor would 'force' them to cut back to the titillating glance the audience got instead.
* GivingRadioToTheRomans: Giving guns to the cavemen.

* HarsherInHindsight: Kirk says that the conflict in Vietnam was resolved by making sure both factions were equally armed with neither becoming stronger than the other. Real life solution? Run like hell!
