he'd been doing some experimental work, captain, an experimental beam we'd hoped might rehabilitate incorrigibles. van gelder felt he hadn't the moral right to expose another man to something he hadn't tried on his own person. tragedy, doctor. jim... that doesn't quite ring true. uh, dr. adams... please stand by. explain. i don't believe him. i can't explain n , but the more i study that patient-- you don't believe him and you can't explain it. bones, are you aware that in the e st 20 years, dr. adams has done more to revolutionize, to humanize prisons and the treatment of prisoners than all the rest of humanity had done in 40 centuries? i've been to those penal colonies since they've begun following his methods. and they're not cages anymore.
6:14 pm

6:15 pm
sorry, jim. dr. adams... this is rather embarrassing. by strict interpretation of our starship regulation, i'm required to initiate an investigation of this so that a proper repept-- no need to apologize, captain ki in fact, i'd take it as a perernal favor if you'd beam down and look into it yourself. i'm sure you realize we don't get too many visitors here. oh, i, uh... captain,n, would appreciate it if you could come down with a minimum staff. we're forced to limit outsididcontact as much as possible. affirmative, doctor. i've visited rehab colonies before. enterprise out. find me someone in your departmeme

don't you remember? the science lab christmas party? yes, i remember. you dropped in-- yes, yes, i remember. problem, captain? mr. spock, you tell mccoy that she'd better check out as the best assistant i ever had. energize.
6:20 pm
in here i presume, doctor. perhaps it would be simpler if you called me helen, captain, since-- this is another time, another place, and another situation. well, of course, captain. elevator... and going down quite a ways. hello, captain kirk... and, uh... dr. helen noel. it's a pleasure to finally meet you, sir. thank you. thank you, captain. welcome to devil's island, doctor. perhaps you'll call me helen, doctor. with so many titles around,
6:21 pm
thank you. i believe regulations call for me to check my weapon. oh, no, that won't be necessary in your case, captain. just keep it out of sight. i know you people feel as naked without a weapon as we do without a medikit. [both laugh] a small toast. do you mind? it's such a great day for us here on tantalus when we have visitors, no matter what the excuse. doctor... oh, now, captain, you made your apology from upstairs. now forget it. to get through the security screen, captain. just a second. there. now try it. kirk to enterprise. come in. enterprise. spock here. your landing coordinates were right on the nose, mr. spock. we arrived safely, and we're here with dr. adams right now. kirk out. affirmative, captain. enterprise out. ah, lethe... come in. lethe... this is captain kirk
6:22 pm
lethe came to us for rehabilitation and stayed on as a therapist, and a very good one, too, i might add. i love my work. ht ahead, captain. before you came here... i was another person-- malignant, hateful. may i ask what crime you committed? does it matter? that person no longer exists. uh, part of our cure, if you will, captain, is to bury the past. why should a person go on living with unbearable memories if there's no necess-- well, i feel quite sure that you'd concur with me in that, doctor-- helen. a shifting of memory patterns is basic to psychotherapy. yes. and now to the toast, hmm? you'll forgive us, lethe. there you are, captain.
6:23 pm
may we never find space so vast, planets so cold, heart and mind so empty that we cannot fill them with love and warmth. ssive. hi, carl. doctor... yes? hmm? ah... i was afraid you would ask about this, captain. one doesn't like to talk about their personal failures, you know. it was j jt an experiment that went wrong, i'm afraid. may i see it? captain, if something hasn't worked out and, therefore, has no scientific fact-- since you brought me down here for advice, captain--
6:24 pm
is being able to ask for advice without necessarily having to take it. to the captain, helen. you're fighting over your weight. all right, let's take a aook. i'm not a criminal! i do not require... neural neutralizer. neural neutralizer. can you explain that, dr. van gelder? a room... a device. door... control panel. i see it. a device... a light! the light! this room... what happens there?
6:25 pm
aah! aah!
6:26 pm
6:27 pm
a neural neutralizer-- experimental. actually, we don't expect to get much use out of it at all. that beam from above neutralizes brain waves. it relaxes the patient as well. it does them no harm, of course, and the effects are only temporary. one question, doctor. if it doesn't do any good... why do we go on using it, hmm, captain? hope. yes. yes, there's always that slight chance that it might do some good
6:28 pm
tranquilizers are fine, captain, but to continually pump chemicals into a person's blood-- exactly my point, helen. yes. shall we? how does it work? quite simple. off/on switches... and the large control here changes the strength of the brain neutralizing beam. captain... you remind me of the ancient skeptic who demanded of the wise old sage to be taught all the world's wisdom while standing on one foot. beam neutralizing has been experimented with on earth, captain. i'm not acquainted with this particular style of equipment, but i can assure you that dr. adams has not created a chamber of horrors here. i didn't mean to suggest that he had. the reason i asked, sir, was you haven't mentioned where dr. van gelder's injury occurred. right here, captain.
6:29 pm
n was a very stubborn man. he could have sat in that room for years with the beam at that volume, or even higher, or if he simply had someone standing by to snap it off in case he got into trouble, but... no. he tried it alone and on full volume. it's a pity. thank you. you will forget all you have heard. to remember any portion of it, any word, will cause you pain, terrible pain... growing more terrible
6:30 pm
can you give us your present location, captain? in dr. adams' study, mr. spock. why? then you're with dr. adams now. affirmative. captain... van gelder has made reference to a particular treatment room. the term was neural neutralizer. yes. he was injured there. i've seen the room. dr. adams explained the mistake van gelder made. go ahead, mr. spock. anything further? your mr. spock sounds like a very excellent second in command, captain kirk. please tell him to go ahead and speak freely. i have to check in with a member of my staff anyway. thank you, dr. adams. excuse me. stand by, mr. spock.
