Okay, but get rid of the Organians. And put the Planet Killer in somewhere.
You still have to have the Organians. But this time you make them twisted fucks who get off on watching the Federation and Klingons slaughter each other. You can have big space battles and big ground battles and actions sequences.

Then you have Kirk and the Klingons get together at the end to defeat them.
Isn't that Day of the Dove writ large?
You are completely right.

I just figured that Errand of Mercy gives you the big stage with a full-out war. Plus the entity from Day of the Dove didn't have a human form to use.
