Star Trek-TOS-A Taste of Armageddon

One of the purest episodes as far as science fiction goes. The Enterprise, under orders from the tit headed Ambassador Fox played by the late Gene Lyons, ignores the warnings to stay away from a planet waging a war with computers where caualties are tallied and "victims" report to disintegration chamber. Not heavy on the special effects but great as a concept and we have Barbara Babcock in the female lead. Along with Magel Barrett she often provided uncredited computer voices throughout the series. Nice lighting and one of the best serious episodes.
