The rock entity announces that the planets Excalibians wish to conduct an experiment to determine which human philosophy is stronger — good or evil. To spice things up, the Excalibians, as well as the crew of the Enterprise are allowed to witness the drama but cannot interfere. The test will be a simple one of survival. In order for the exercise to begin, Yarnek uses his illusionary powers to create a place on his boiling planet where the USS Enterprise crew can breathe and battle it out.
A battle of wits ensues pitting Kirk, Lincoln, Spock and Surak (good guys) against four of the galaxies notorious minds in a fight to the death. During the war games, various battle strategies are played out truly testing Kirk and Spock's belief in Peace. When the fight ends, the Excalbian reappears and announces that while evil retreats when confronted with force, there is no great difference otherwise between the two philosophies.
What do you think distinguishes good from evil?
Does the end result justify the means??
