  • A Native American "god" captures members of the Enterprise crew in this homage to "Who Mourns for Adonais?"

    7.0
    This is a solid, if unremarkable, episode (although it is noteworthy for marking the 100th appearance of Mr. Spock as well as winning the animated series an Emmy Award.) The story is reminiscent of "Who Mourns for Adonais?"; but Russell Bates, a Native American who helped write the script, gives "How Sharper than a Serpent's Tooth" some fresh ideas, thanks to his knowledge of the Native American culture. Unfortunately, like the rest of the series, the dialogue wasn't recorded in ensemble fashion. As a result, the pronunciation of Kukulkan varies. Kirk pronounces it wrong, and everyone else pronounces it correctly!
