In this episode of Trekking Through Compliance, I consider the episode Devil in the Dark, which aired on March 9, 1967, Star Date 3196.1.

The Enterprise arrives at the pergium mining colony with an unknown creature that has killed 50 miners and engineers and destroyed equipment with a strong corrosive substance. Kirk and his security team search for the creature. Spock, suspecting it may be a silicon-based lifeform. They encounter the creature and fire upon it, breaking a piece of it off. The creature flees by burrowing through a rock wall. Spock adjusts his tricorder to scan for silicon-based life and confirms that the creature is the only such lifeform for miles.

They find the creature, and Spock mind-melds with it. The miners arrive and attempt to attack the creature. Kirk and Spock stop them, explaining that it was only protecting its eggs when it killed humans. Kirk convinces them that the Horta are peaceful and could collaborate with the miners by tunnelling for them.

Kirk, Spock, and McCoy return to the Enterprise, prepare to leave orbit, and learn from Vanderberg that the eggs have hatched and already the new Horta have uncovered rich veins of pergium and other valuable metals.
