The Man Trap

TOS Season 1 Episode 1
Air Date: September 8th, 1966

First episode aired to the public. The Enterprise is making a stop to resupply a research station at a planet where the indigenous population went extinct. The research station consisted of two people Professor Robert Crater and his wife Nancy Crater. Turns out that Nancy was McCoy's old girlfriend and the doctor was eager to see her again. When he did though she appeared as three different people to each of the landing party. To Dr. McCoy she appeared just as she did when he last saw her, young woman with dark brown hair. To Kirk she looked like she would have if she aged normally and to Darnell she appeared as a young women with blond hair.

After a few crew members die with mysterious marks on their face and no salt content in their bodies, the creature posing as Nancy finds her way on the enterprise and finds a few more victims. Using McCoy's love for Nancy he makes McCoy make a hard choice, but he finally does kill her, effectively killing the last of her kind. The real Nancy had died a year ago and the professor was giving the creature salt in exchange for a false relationship.
