In this episode of Trekking Through Compliance, I consider the episode Is There No Truth in Beauty which aired on October 18, 1968, Star Date 5630.7.

The Enterprise is given the mission of transporting the Medusan ambassador Kollos, a member of a species so ugly that the mere sight of it causes humans to go insane back to his home planet. The ambassador arrives enclosed in a specially designed box and is accompanied by the telepath Dr. Miranda Jones, who is looking after his needs. Like Spock, Jones can look at a Medusan through a visor, supposedly because she has studied on Vulcan but in reality because she is blind.

Larry Marvick, one of the designers of the Enterprise, also beamed aboard. He seeks revenge against Kollos for taking Miranda away from him but s driven insane when he inadvertently looks at Kollos while attempting to shoot him with a phaser. The insane Marvick commandeers the Enterprise and pilots it to an unknown location outside the galaxy.

Using the visor to protect his human half from the sight of the Medusan, Spock melds minds with Kolos and is returned the Enterprise to its galaxy. Miranda and Kollos are then delivered to their destination. Upon parting, Kirk presents Miranda with a rose. Miranda queries, “I suppose it has thorns,” and Kirk responds, “I never met a rose that didn’t.”

Compliance Takeaways:

2. Compliance leadership is a conversation.
