Vital Information
Episodes: 22
Seasons: 2 (technically 1.5)
Original Run: September 8, 1973–October 12, 1974

Review
Let's look at this from the point of view of the era in which it was aired. It was 1973, Star Trek had been out of production for a good four years, but was doing very strongly syndication. Roddenberry and the team thought they could tell some more stories, but this time, in order to do them without the constraints of makeup and effects budgets, they would make an animated series. One small step to get the Trekkies excited before any talk of a movie could be had. So, what happened?

Star Trek: Asterisk "The Counter-Clock Incident"

Vital Information
Series: The Animated Series
Episode: S02E06
Air Date: October 12, 1974
Written by: John Culver
Directed by: Hal Sutherland and Bill Reed

Premise
The Enterprise goes to a parallel universe where time runs backwards and events aren't canon.

Review
We're just going to ignore the fact that Commodore Robert April and his wife Dr. Sarah April claim to have been the first captain and chief medical officer of the Enterprise which Dr. April claims was the first starship with warp drive and chalk it all up to senility brought on by their old age. It's because of this old age that they're being escorted to a ceremony for their mandatory retirement. Though, with the state of their memory, I imagine the mandatory part has more to do with their mental state than their age. Since, ya know... Bones was, like, 130-something before he quit.

Premise
Kulkukan, the Mayan god, stops by for a visit in the Alpha Quadrant and takes Kirk and a landing party captive for a bit.

Review
So, the Enterprise starts out pursuing a probe that came by the Alpha Quadrant to scan stuff and throw out some signals. It's the duty of the Federation to get in contact with other lifeforms, so, what the heck, why not?, let's follow the probe. Luckily, the plucky young Ensign Walking Bear is along for the ride in Sulu's place, so when they encounter a Mayan god, they just happen to have an expert with them to figure out what it is.

Premise
Turns out a whole race of aliens thinks Bones killed half of them with a plague 19 years ago and now they wanna put him on trial.

Review
While delivering medical supplies to Dramia, the Dramians accuse Bones of killing them all with a plague. This, naturally, makes a lot of sense and Kirk immediately hands Bones over to the authorities. Bones is summarily executed, and the Enterprise returns home. Wait, no, that's not what happens. They fight it. They don't believe Bones could have anything to do with it. In order to investigate the plague, they have to go to the Dramia system's other planet, and that's when the fun begins.

Premise
After running through an energy cloud, the crew of the Enterprise starts experiencing a bunch of crazy practical jokes. Also there is a holodeck.

Review
While going along in space, the Enterprise is attacked by a Romulan ship that claims they have entered Romulan space. Of course, this is preposterous, because if they were going to go through Romulan space, Kirk would have put on his pointy ears. Regardless, they're under attack, so they have to find a way out. And that energy cloud up ahead seems like a real good idea at the time.

Star Trek: Asterisk "Weekly Aftermath - The Bem Slaver's Element Eyes Jihad on Orion"

Things were starting to look grim, because we thought the end would never come, but alas, we only have one more week of The Animated Series!

Remember to keep breathing while you check out our take on the episodes here.

If you've not yet read Steve's reviews of the episodes, then you should feel very, very ashamed of yourself. And even moreso if you haven't already started listening to the Officer's Lounge.

And don't even bother going into public until you've watched the live show this and every Thursday at 6PM Eastern. Now hurry, before it's too late!

Apparently, this rare artifact, the very soul of the Skorr's messiah, is the only thing keeping the peace in this sector, so unless they find it soon, war will break out.

There's not much else for them to do except get attacked. So they're running away from non-sentient beings for awhile until finally they're captured by some giant slugs.

They have to find out how it happened so they can prevent a disaster on this other planet. What they didn't count on was Kirk and Spock turning into fish-men.

The Bermuda Triangle in space. Other than that, I'm not too sure...

Review
So, the Enterprise goes to investigate the Delta Triangle which is pretty much the Bermuda Triangle in space, because that's always a good idea. When they get there, sensors start to fail and things get all wonky, and to make matters worse, a Klingon ship attacks! It comes up and demands surrender, but then disappears and reappears and finally the Enterprise decides to skip it and warps out. Then they get caught in an ion storm and enter a space/time vortex wherein is a starship graveyard. With starships from every race, every time, every sector of the galaxy.

HONEY, I SHRUNK THE CREW!

Review
So, the Enterprise picks up a distress signal from a nearby planet. Most of it is garbled, but what they can pick up is a signal that hasn't be used for hundreds of years transmitting the word "Terratin". Based on that alone, they go in orbit of a planet and the planet shoots out a beam of light that paralyzes them and peels their dilithium crystals like the skin of an orange. Lucky for them, the planet below is lousy with dilithium.

After running into him two times before, the Enterprise is finally called upon to apprehend and arrest the criminal Harcourt Fenton "Harry" Mudd. They find him on the terribly named planet, Motherlode, where he is trying to sell a love potion that's locked inside some crystals. The miners on the planet seem impressed... until the woman that's all over him turns out to be a shape shifter.

So it's time once again for the crew to go on shore leave. And, of course, they know the perfect place to go. The planet they found in the episode titled "Shore Leave" is a perfect diversion for their space weariness. When they arrive, Bones recalls the last time they were there he saw a white rabbit being chased by Alice. And then the same white rabbit and little girl show up again. Things appear to be going swimmingly with Bones in his own Southern estate and Uhura singing by the shoreline. And then... The Queen of Hearts attacks. And a hovering robot kidnaps Uhura.

Review
So, apparently, there is a theory that states that if the galaxy was created by an explosion, there could still be matter-creating explosions going on in the center of the galaxy. Now, scientists today tell us that the center of the galaxy is occupied by a supermassive black hole that holds the galaxy together in its orbit. Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country tells us that there is also a planet upon which is a god-like being that wants to steal the Enterprise. Today we will find that, besides these two things, there is also a portal into a magical dimension wherein the Devil plays.

Review
So the Enterprise visits the planet Phylos and while they're looking around, Sulu comes across a weird species of planet life that unroots itself, walks around and then digs back into the ground. Kinda cute - like a planty tribble. Should be no tribble at all. But then Sulu passes out from the plant's poison. And then the away team meets the planet's inhabitants: plant creatures who know exactly how to cure Sulu. How, you may ask? Because they've met a human before. And it's their master.

Review
The series that started it all. The Original Series was very much a product of its time. The space race was in full effect and the whole world was dreaming of the stars. Only a few dared to write their dreams down. Fewer still watched their dreams become televised reality. And while those who could were fighting the world's battles, those who wouldn't were dreaming of peace. When Star Trek came along, it fantasized and romanticized the major issues of the day and assured people that one day it would all be better. One day humanity would be highly evolved enough to live in peace on Earth and take to the stars where our greatest troubles would be a product of the Great Unknown.
