In this episode of Trekking Through Compliance, we consider the compliance lessons from the episode The Changeling, which aired on September 29, 1967, and occurred on Star Date 3451.9.

The Enterprise encounters a probe that identifies itself as Nomad, which believes that Kirk is its creator of Nomad. Nomad says its mission is to destroy that which is not perfect, unfortunately including humans.

Kirk confronts Nomad, telling him that his contempt for biological units is illogical since its creator is a biological unit. Kirk then gets Nomad to admit that it must sterilize everything, which is in error. While attempting to consider the situation, Nomad is beamed into space. It is caught in a logic loop while attempting to analyze its errors and finally self-destructs to "sterilize" its imperfections.

Compliance Takeaways:

  1. A big part of leadership is listening.
  2. What is your procedure for updating policies?
  3. How often do you perform a risk assessment?
