Mudd's Women (Episode)
Stardate 1329.1: The Enterprise rescues con artist Harry Mudd and his "beautiful" female cargo.
Harry Mudd, with his cargo of three beautiful women, is beamed aboard the Enterprise just as his ship is destroyed in an asteroid field. In rescuing Mudd and his women, the Enterprise burns out its dilithium crystals. The starship proceeds as quickly as it can to a mining planet to replenish its supply. Mudd, against whom Kirk has filed criminal charges, makes advance contact with the miners, promising them his women in exchange for his freedom. The miners, led by Ben Childress, agree to the deal—only to discover that the women are using a highly illegal Venus drug to make themselves beautiful. The marriages work out nonetheless, and Kirk gets Harry—and the crystals he needs to run his ship.
