Dr. Lazarus, deeply disturbed by their cheerful stupidity, takes over command after Taggert suggests rewiring the ship for improved performance. As their conditions worsen, Lazarus goes to Z'tara to investigate the source of their rapidly deteriorating condition. There he discovers ancient-looking duplicates of the entire Protector crew ready to be activated and sent back aboard . Dr. Lazarus avoids being supplanted by cloaking himself with a magneto-reflective shield and locates the real Capt. Taggert and Lt. Madison and returns with them onboard. Following is a hilarious scene in which Taggert and Madison battle and destroy their dull-witted duplicates while the duplicates spew out torrents of nonsense. The episode ends with Dr. Lazarus, on deck, sipping his newfound favorite drink, the Martini.
