The Enterprise is sent on a mission to the planet Thiopa to provide aid to the people there due to an environmental catastrophe. When they arrive they discovery the Government more concerned with protecting its own power than protecting its citizens.

This is a typical Trek plot - a little bit clich├ęd. Nevertheless, the lack of a unique premise is made up for with the quality of the writing.
