The sea dragon, a legend ostensibly about a sea monster, turns out instead to be about a weirwood boat — still something large that belongs in the sea, and maybe it had a nice sea monster for a masthead, who knows. Of course the primary significance seeing the truth of the weirwood boat was that it led us to discover the weirwood throne, the weirwood crown, and the rest of the greenseer symbolism that clings to the Grey King like barnacles on the hull of a weirwood submarine. Now, in Weirwood Compendium 5:
Edit Spock and Dr. McCoy are walking through the corridors of the USS Enterprisewhere they encounter Crewman Normanwho joined the Enterprise crew only 72 hours before. McCoy mentions that Norman is odd and unemotional; for some reason, Spock hasn't noticed.
Norman makes his way into auxiliary controlwhere he knocks out Jordanthe crewman on duty and activates the override.
Norman lurks outside auxiliary control On the bridgeLieutenant Sulu reports a course change whereupon Captain Kirk sends security to auxiliary control, but to no avail. Sulu tries to override the course change, but fails.
Norman then breaks into the emergency manual monitor and engineering section, knocks out much of the engineering crew, and jams the controls. A dazed Scott hails the bridge and informs Kirk that the intruder is in engineering.
Later, Norman emerges from the turbolift onto the bridge and announces he is in control — any attempt to alter course will destroy the ship. He then says "we" don't intend harm to humanoid life, but rather require the ship, and opens up a panel in his abdominal region, revealing himself to be an android.
Act One Edit Norman's handiwork Norman announces that he's locked the controls and that they will arrive at their destination in four solar days. He then promptly shuts down in front of the bridge's turbolift. After having been taken over by an android, the Enterprise has been underway at warp 7 for four days.
Now, we are entering orbit around a planet which has never been charted. Norman wakes up and announces that Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Uhuraand Chekov must beam down, or he will destroy the engines, stranding the Enterprise in orbit forever.
King Mudd the First The planet is Class Kwhich means that it can be adapted for life with the help of a large amount of machinery. They are ushered into the presence of Harry Muddsitting on a throne and drinking from a goblet, who declares that he rules the planet as "Mudd the First.
Act Two Edit Harry Mudd is surrounded by androids, who for the most part are a slew of beauties — in the Alice class alone.
He implies that these androids can provide for him anything he wants. Mudd goes on to explain his presence on the planet. He had been sent to prison by Kirk and company after his last encounter with the Enterprise crew and the affair on the Rigel mining planet.
After his escape, he had been employing himself by illegally reselling patents. He was caught selling a Vulcan fuel synthesizer to the Denebians and, upon being informed of Mudd's deception, sentenced to death on Deneb V ; fortunately for him he was able to steal a ship and get away despite being shot at.
After drifting aimlessly for a while, he found himself on his planet. The problem is, of course, that he has gotten bored, but the androids won't let him go unless they can provide more humans for them to study.
Kirk and his crewmates are there because he told the androids to go and get a starship, so the crew could stay and he could leave. Mudd then demonstrates to Kirk and McCoy an android replica of his shrewish wife Stella ; he amuses himself by telling her to shut up whenever he likes, thereby finally getting the last word with his wife.
The androids bring them to a recreation area, where they reveal that they were made by the Makersa humanoid race from the Andromeda Galaxy. Their home planet's sun went nova and only a few exploratory outposts survived.
After the androids leave the room, Spock surmises that the number of androids and their interactions are such that they cannot operate independently. He concludes that there should be a central control system which guides the entire android population.Maureen O'Hara (born Maureen FitzSimons; 17 August – 24 October ) was an Irish-American actress and singer.

As Chekov fights for his life and Sulu tries desperately to save him, Spock reflects on the strong bond that exists between the two men and starts to wonder what it is he's really afraid of in his relationship with Kirk.

A narrative technique (also known more narrowly for literary fictional narratives as a literary technique, literary device, or fictional device) is any of several specific methods the creator of a narrative uses to convey what they want —in other words, a strategy used in the making of a narrative to relay information to the audience and, particularly, to "develop" the narrative, usually in.
