In this episode of Trekking Through Compliance, we consider the episode A Taste of Armageddon, which aired on February 23, 1967, with a Star Date of 3192.1.

The Enterprise arrives at Eminiar VII to open diplomatic relations. Unfortunately, a tri-cobalt satellite explosion from Vendikar declared it destroyed, and all persons aboard were ordered to report for disintegration within 24 hours.

Kirk manages to tell Scotty to issue General Order 24 (destruction of the planet) in two hours. Kirk then overpowers his guards and is joined by Spock. They destroy the central computer. This nullifies the treaty with Vendikar and initiates a real war unless Anan 7 agrees to make peace with its ancient enemy. Now faced with the grisly consequences of a real war, Anan agrees, and Fox offers to mediate the negotiations. As the Enterprise heads towards Organna 2, Fox reports from Eminiar VII that the outlook is hopeful.
