I just can't understand the meaning of the war... Didn't the inhabitants of both planets realise the war is meaningless?

Apart from that the episode's good.

Hard to judge special effects as there wheren't any specific...

It's not totally meaningless. People were dying, for real. It's just that they had gotten used to it. They no longer thought of their "war" as a problem. It had become part of their culture. So, the inhabitants were fine with just killing themselves if they were in a simulated hit area. Why not? It had been that way for 500 years. It's just how things were.

What's the point of fighting if you do not destroy what makes your enemy dangerous (infrastructure). In my opinion over the years they just simply forgot what was the cause of the conflict.

That's the point! They died but in the name of what?

That happens a lot, even here on Earth. Do you know how many wars are still being fought right now, where the two sides fighting don't even remember why they were fighting in the first place? I think it all comes down to hate. In the episode, the people from both planets hated each other and were determined to "win". Really, it all just sounds more like a contest than a war.

You ask "What's the point of fighting if you do not destroy what makes your enemy dangerous?" It's not about that. It's simply about striking back and killing as many people as possible. Which, again, it sounds a lot more like a game than something real.

It's built into their society that they must win the "war". They don't care how it started. All they care about is winning.

But, yeah, it does all seem pointless. But only someone from the outside can see that.

Someone from outside who doesn't give a damn about that little thing called the Prime Directive... Sounds like a job for Kirk and McCoy, lol. Because they know best, right Jim... right Bones.
