Practically identical to the Earth, Miri's World is a good example of a double planetary evolution. The inhabitants of this planet have had a normal evolution until an experiment biological for the prolongation of the life completely failed, dispersing a virus that has killed all the adults. But, this virus has prolonged the life of all the surviving children, each of which contracts the illness during the adolescence. When the Enterprise has discovered this planet, in date 2713, it has found only a small group of survivors; in succession, other searches have individualized around 10,000 individuals, all of age inferior at 12 years. A serum has eliminated with happened the virus and a federal team is driving the inhabitants until they won't be able to govern alone.
