In this episode of Trekking Through Compliance, we consider the episode Obsession which aired on December 15, 1967, Star Date 3619.2.
On a planet Kirk notices a sweet, honey-like odor which he recognizes. He orders the security guards to scan for choronium and fire at any gaseous cloud they encounter. Before they can do so, 2 are killed and one seriously injured. Kirk becomes obsessed with the destruction of the creature, which killed half the crew of the U.S.S. Farragut which was Kirk's first deep-space assignment.
Scanners report that the creature is in a border state between matter and energy. The creature slows and then heads for the Enterprise and it enters the ship through the number 2 impulse vent which had inadvertently been left open by Scott after performing maintenance. The creature then leaves the ship and heads away at warp speed, but Kirk has a hunch of where the creature is headed, its home planet where the creature is destroyed.
