The USS Enterprise, under the command of Captain James T. Addressing the crew, the Enterprise’s first officer, Mr. Spock, explains that the Neutral Zone came into being under the terms of the peace treaty that ended the Earth-Romulan War a century earlier. Because there were no visual communications at that time, the two races have never seen, and have little knowledge, of each other. The Enterprise comes into range of Outpost 4 and contacts the base commander, Hansen, who reveals that he is the only survivor of an attack by an unknown enemy with weapons of immense power. A single shot has destroyed the base’s shields and killed the phaser crew, and Hanson is suffering from terrible burns.

As they speak, the enemy ship reappears. Hanson transmits the view from his sensors as the ship materializes and fires before disappearing again. The ship’s sensors soon locate the attacker, which remains invisible. Kirk surmises that the attacker is equipped with a cloaking device.

A coded message from the intruder provides a view through one of its internal cameras, revealing humanoids with an appearance like Mr. During a discussion of the Romulan ship’s capabilities, Stiles suggests that the Enterprise attack the Romulan vessel before it can reach the Neutral Zone. Spock agrees, believing the Romulans are likely an offshoot of the Vulcan species. Spock reasons that if the Romulans have retained the martial philosophy of Vulcan’s ancient past, they would surely take advantage of any perceived weakness. A cat-and-mouse game ensues, with each ship showing strengths and weaknesses. The Enterprise is faster and more maneuverable, while the Romulan ship has a cloaking device and an arsenal of immensely destructive plasma torpedoes.
