The ship was hailed to a planet. The captain awoke on an empty ship. A young blonde was wandering the ship.
Over time the captain figures out it’s not his ship it’s a mock up. The planet is teaming with people elbow to elbow hardly room to sit down, there is no disease on the planet any more.
The supreme leader of the planet set up the mock ship so Kirk could infect his daughter, the blonde, with diseases and spread them through the planet so they could get back to normal life and death again, the disease free utopia had a dark side they no longer wanted.
An interesting premise I can understand the point of but it was really a hack of an episode.
