After three months, the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise is in need of a rest. Dr. McCoy and Lt. Sulu explore an uninhabited planet in the Omicron Delta region as a candidate for shore leave, but McCoy sees a white rabbit followed by a blond girl from "Alice in Wonderland," and Sulu finds an antique revolver.
Captain Kirk explores the planet, and encounters Finnegan, an upperclassman who picked on Kirk when he was at the Academy, and he meets Ruth, an old girlfriend. Other members of the landing party see animals and historical figures.
The landing party meets the Caretaker of the planet, which was designed as an amusement park for the Caretaker's advanced race, creating simulations of whatever someone is thinking. At the Caretaker's invitation, the Enterprise crew uses the amusement planet for its shore leave.
