The Enterprise is sent to respond to a series of distress calls from the outposts along the Romulan border.  The Romulan Empire is a power, but mysterious foe.  Little is known about them, not even their appearance.  Captain Kirk and his Romulan counterpart must now engage in a deadly game of cat and mouse, and the fate of Federation hangs in the balance.

Matt and I gave this a combined 10.  It's classic Star Trek and for a very good reason.  Stellar performances and a tight script hold together a wonderful hour of television.  You should download this podcast if only for a reason to sit down and watch this fantastic episode.  Go on.  Go.  We'll wait.  This podcast comes in just under an hour long and 54.5 MB.
