  • Kirk and the crew discover a planet with intelligent plants and a mad scientist who wants to impose peace on the galaxy.

    This series was only able to hire six regular voice actors; so one of the seven regular Star Trek characters had to be left out of the show. Chekov, played by Walter Koenig, was the natural choice. He was the last of the seven to join the original show, and his part wasn't that important. But that didn't mean Koenig couldn't be part of the animated series; he served in another capacity. He was the writer for this episode. He tackles a subject matter the original series would have had difficulty bringing to life: the idea of a planet where plants have developed intelligent life. The episode moves along well and is a solid animated installment.
