      M<br>A<br>Y<br>B<br>E<br><br>S<br>P<br>O<br>I<br>L<br>E<br>R<br><br>Okay, first and foremost, the subject in the Valiant
      dealt with what was in two episodes of TOS series.
      <br><br>In "Where no man has gone before":<br>Some years
      before this second pilot, the S.S. Valiant had
      encountered a unknown energy barrier at the rim of the
      galaxy. Something had then made its captain destroy his
      ship. <br><br>The U.S.S. Enterprise finds the Valiant's
      disaster record-marker, which reveals that just prior to
      its destruction the crew had been searching library
      tapes for any information on psionics. <br><br>The
      U.S.S. Enterprise arrives at the edge of the galaxy and
      the same force affects the ship's drives that must
      have affected those of the Valiant. Kirk notices a
      strong personality change in his good friend, Lieutenant
      Gary Mitchell, whose latent psionic abilities are
      heightened by the force field. Soon Mitchell has gained
      enormous extrasensory powers, displaying many talents
      which include moving objects with his mind and
      controlling his own heart rate. To a smaller degree, Dr.
      Elizabeth Dehner is also affected by the force field's
      power and the two are drawn together by their common
      powers. <br><br>As Mitchell's powers grow, he becomes
      more dangerous. Spock believes that when the Valiant
      experienced the same phenomena, it destroyed itself to
      prevent the power from taking over the galaxy. Gary
      Mitchell confirms his fears when he informs them that he
      is becoming a god who will rule the humans. Spock
      feels that Mitchell's death is the only solution, but
      Kirk is unable to kill his old friend. Instead, he
      exiles him to an uninhabited planet. However, once on
      the planet's surface, Mitchell kills his guard and
      escapes, taking Dr. Dehner with him. Kirk follows with a
      phaser rifle and Mitchell attempts to kill Kirk with his
      psionic powers. <br><br>Witnessing this display, Dr.
      Dehner realizes how inhuman and dangerous Mitchell has
      become and tries to help Kirk defeat him. Without
      remorse, Mitchell kills Elizabeth Dehner. Before he can
      refocus his psi powers, Kirk creates a rockslide that
      entombs Mitchell, killing him. <br><br>Afterwards, Spock
      admits to Kirk that for the first time in his life, he
      felt something akin to human emotion.
