In this episode of Trekking Through Compliance, we consider the compliance and leadership lessons from the episode The Apple, which aired on October 13, 1967, and occurred on Star Date 3715.0.

A Landing Party finds danger on a seemingly pristine planet as the Enterprise is threatened. The planet's inhabitants are the feeders of Vaal. Kirk asks to be taken to Vaal, just as Scott reports that the Enterprise is being dragged into the planet by a tractor beam from the planet.

Kirk and Spock go to confront Vaal. Vaal responds by calling a thunderstorm and striking Spock with a lightning bolt. The people of Vaal then attack, killing a security guard. As usual, the rest of the landing party fends off the attack and gets off unscathed. Kirk has Scott attack Vaal with the ship's phasers to weaken. This drains Vaal's power reserves and frees the people from his grip. Spock accuses Kirk of giving the people the equivalent of the apple of knowledge and driving them from their Eden, but Kirk maintains that Spock's resemblance to the Devil is much more apparent than his own.

Compliance Takeaways:

1. How do you validate that your policies are being followed?

2. Red shirts in TOS and managing risk.

3. The role of the Board of Directors in compliance.
