In this episode of Trekking Through Compliance, we consider the episode A Private Little War, which aired on February 2, 1968, and occurred on Star Date 4307.1.
Spock, Bones, and Kirk beam down to a planet Kirk surveyed 13 years ago and are attacked. Spock is shot while trying to escape. Kirk speculates that the Klingons have violated the treaty governing the "neutral planet", which restricts both parties to scientific research, and provided them with rifles.
On the planet, Kirk furnishes the hill people with rifles. The wife of the leader of the Hill people is killed, and now Tyree is mad with anger and asks Kirk for many weapons with which to kill the village people. Kirk complies by asking Scotty to manufacture flintlock rifles for the hill people, which he refers to as "serpents for the Garden of Eden." As they beam back to the Enterprise, Kirk s upset at the loss of innocence he has contributed to but knows of no other action he could have taken.
