Episode Summary

Zodac comes to Grayskull and tells The Sorceress that Eternia is in great danger as Skeletor is searching for the Starseed, the single most powerful object in the universe- a small chunk of cosmic matter left over from the big bang, which can turn its holder's thoughts into reality. The Sorceress summons He-Man, and together with Battle Cat and Orko, he sets off on a race to reach the Starseed before Skeletor does. But given that the Starseed is able to give anyone all the power that they want, is even He-Man strong enough to resist being corrupted by its power?moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • This episode provides an excellent insight into the rarely-seen character of Zodac, and how his allegiance is divided between both good and evil forces.

      • This episode contains a classic scene that no fan of the series should miss, in which He-Man for the one and only time comes close to being tempted by the ways of evil.

      • It seems very unusual (and very impossible) that Skeletor should be drilling to the center of the planet to get the Starseed- and even more ludicrous that the only damage it causes are minor ground tremors!

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Zodac: There are times when everybody dreams of becoming very rich or powerful. But what they don't think about are the problems and responsibilities that go with it. In today's story He-Man was tested, and he proved his worth when he was able to resist the temptation to use his great power for any selfish gain. He knew that it's just as important to know when not to use force, as it is to know when to use it.

      • He-Man: I hold the power of the starseed. The universe could be rid of your evil. I could rid the entire universe of evil. Nothing could stop me. Noone would dare oppose my will. Whatever I want, I could have.
        Skeletor: We're not so far apart, are we He-Man?
