Bones says he has a disease that has no cure! He has a year to live!

Kirk, Bones and Spock are captured and taken to see “the oracle”
“Learn what it means to be our enemy before you learn what it means to be our friend”. Not a great strategy for making friends.
They meet an old guy that said he climbed the highest mountain and he touched the fake sky. Why would the people who made this ship even make a mountain that could reach the sky?
Whenever he thinks about something he isn’t supposed to think about, something inflicts him with hilarious pain
The high priestess seems to like Bones
Bones decides to stay behind and become one of them.
There’s a book that explains everything, but no one is allowed to look at it. I smell a scam.
Bones tries to tell Kirk about the book but the oracle punishes him

The book shows how to get past the oracle, which is of course a super computer, which is of course a wall with some lights on it. They learn how to steer the asteroid/ship so it won’t hit a planet
Oh, and Bones is better now
