In this episode of Trekking Through Compliance, we consider the episode Return to Tomorrow, which aired on February 9, 1968, and occurred on Star Date 4768.3.

The Enterprise receives a distress call from a planet hundreds of light years too distant to have been visited by any Earth ship. Spock determines that the planet is similar to Earth but older and that its atmosphere was ripped away half a million years ago. Spock detects a power source originating 100 miles below the planet's surface, and they all beam down.

The landing party discovers evidence of an ancient culture on a planet whose habitable surface was destroyed long ago by a self-inflicted cataclysm. They meet Sargon, who Sargon occupies Kirk's body. This transference produces great stress on Kirk's body, causing McCoy to become alarmed. Sargon then asks to borrow the bodies of Spock and Dr. Mullhall so that they may construct androids. Sargon realizes that the temptation for him and Filissa to abuse their god-like powers is too great, and he and Filissa desert their bodies and fade into oblivion.

Compliance Takeaways:

1. High risk can mean a high reward.

2. What is your risk management protocol?

3. How does your organization account for changing risk?
