* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Leaving aside the fact that it's impossible for a planet to be "germ free"...if Gideon were completely germ free as said, it wouldn't result in people living very long lives. It would result in a population that had zero immunity. The entire population would be wiped out as soon as any pathogen were introduced. It wouldn't take an exotic, deadly illness like Kirk carried to do it.

The entire population would be wiped out as soon as any pathogen were introduced. It wouldn't take an exotic, deadly illness like Kirk carried to do it. It would happen the first time they came in contact with alien visitors.

* ComplexityAddiction: The planet needs Kirk's blood to introduce a disease to basically start a plague that will kill off a large percentage of their population. Rather than get this in a more mundane way (like subjecting him to a medical exam on the planet), they go to a huge amount of trouble (and space) to build an entire fake Enterprise, and then still take a blood sample when he's unconscious.

Supposedly, they need him to provide a constant supply of the virus, as they apparently can't just culture it or something.

* DyingDeclarationOfLove: Odona makes one to Kirk. Her passions cool when she realize she's not going to die after all, but has the potential to make many others sick so people can get to dying so everyone can be happy.

* MetaphoricallyTrue: The Gideons never said their planet was a Paradise. They said it ''used'' to be one. They just said the atmosphere was pristine and no one was ever sick. That's what's making the place unbearable.

* PlanetOfHats: Kirk is kidnapped by a race whose universal pro-life tendencies had lead to horrible overpopulation, to the point that they tried to start a pandemic with germs from Kirk (who had been exposed to meningitis in the past). Kirk flaunts Humanity's "freedom" hat by stating categorically that he does not want to stay on this planet as their own hemlock dispenser and instead suggests using one of many forms of birth control the Federation had to offer. (Um...you remembered to use one on Odona, right, Kirk?)
