Outline

While en route to the planet Majalis, the Enterprise receives a distress call from a shuttlecraft under attack from a warship. Enterprise destroys the warship and the shuttlecraft personnel are beamed aboard: a boy designated the “First Servant”; his father and physician Gamal; and Alora, a leader on Majalis who is an old flame of Pike’s. Pike agrees to return them to Majalis. Gamal attempts to fake his son’s death to keep him from returning to the planet, but is thwarted and the boy goes to Majalis with Pike and Alora for his “ascension ceremony”. Pike is allowed to witness the ceremony, where the corpse of the previous First Servant is removed from a machine and the new First Servant is connected in his place. Pike is horrified by this but unable to stop it, and Alora explains that Majalis can only remain a paradise-like society if a child is sacrificed to the machine. The colony objects to this practice and Gamal had joined them in an attempt to save his son. Gamal helps M’Benga work on a treatment for Rukiya’s condition and then leaves Enterprise to join the colony, hoping to save future First Servants.
