Recap: Star Trek S 2 E 22 By Any Other Name
It all starts when Kirk, Bones, Spock and two Red Shirts
beam down to a planet to investigate a distress signal from a crashed ship. Turns out, it was just bait put out by the Kelvans who have decided this galaxy is suitable for colonization. Kirk tells them they're quite welcome to some of the galaxy's uninhabited planets. The Federation might even be willing to aid them. However, the Kelvans do not settle, they conquer. And now they're going back to the Andromeda galaxy to tell everyone the wonderful news! Oh, and they'll be needing the starship Enterprise
to get there. The trip should only take 300 years, more or less.
The Kelvans force thier way on board, hijack it on a course for Andromeda and turn everyone but Kirk, Bones, Spock and Scotty into giant 20 siders. It's up to these four to find a way to take the ship back and restore the crew.
