In this episode, a creature that floats around like a ball of gas rigs it so that an equal number of Klingons and Enterprise crew are eternally fighting with swords on the Enterprise.
Nobody trapped by the gas creature can die even if stabbed with the swords. Navigational control has been lost to the alien.
The gas creature lives off the hateful energy of the fighting and intends to have the Klingons and the Enterprise fight forever to the reaches of the galaxy.
In time, the Klingons and the Enterprise crew figure it out and laugh the creature away so they can all regain control of their lives.
In the picture above, you see Captain Kirk and the Klingon commander laughing the creature away.

This anger can be at ourselves or at others.
But moving beyond these nasty folks is just what we should try to accomplish.
Here are some ideas and thoughts about everyday resistance.
