- Approaching planet Floe I on special survey assignment for the Federation per Command order F-1221.
- Captain's log, stardate 20:27.5
- Lieutenant Uhura and I are being held prisoners by the two leaders of Floe I — Dr. Krisp and Mr. Spock have vanished! It is clear that Amara and Sunaro intend to do away with the crew and me as soon as Lieutenant Uhura writes a false report about their mad society to the Federation... My only hope is that we manage to fool these tyrants and come out alive... I have lost all communication with the Enterprise!

- The reprint in The Enterprise Logs, Volume 4 omitted pages 4 and 18. Page 4 was a self-contained scene with the landing party visiting the bridge prior to beaming down, with Krisp commenting that the population survey might be dull. On page 14, Kirk realized that Nyota Uhura had prevented their fake report from being transmitted, and the Floes decided to kill them.
- Krisp wryly suggested that Montgomery Scott could transmit background music into the landing party’s portable radios, presaging the Sony Walkman and the iPod.
- This story has been released eight times in English as well as being translated into German, Italian, and Portuguese.
- The variant environmental suits worn in the story, anti-freeze uniforms, were colored both red and blue on the cover, with black boots, but were all gold in the story itself. Communications equipment was said to work by telepathy, because conditions were so frigid that the landing party would asphyxiate if they spoke or breathed the atmosphere. That being the case, it was unclear why the uniforms were designed to protect the wearer's eyes but not their mouths.
- Uhura was once misspelled Uhuru.
