  • All organic matter on the Enterprise begins to shrink, threatening the crew.

    Fifteen years before "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids," Star Trek did its version of a shrinking tale here – though thankfully with a different title. This is the sort of story that the original series could never have done (and one even Star Trek: The Next Generation would have found difficult). The story, however, is perfect for animation, and the finished product is a unique and solid episode. Many years later, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine would try something similar with the episode "One Little Ship", but the animated episode is able to include more interesting visuals than DS9's limited "Land of the Giants" version.
  • Being in orbit of a strange planet causes the crew of the Enterprise to shrink.

    I really did enjoy this episode a lot. It was very interesting to watch everyone shrink, not to mention that it was also kind of cute that they couldn't reach their controls. Kirk, Spock and everyone started shrinking so fast, they couldn't reach any of their equipment. Overall, the episode really was interesting and better than some of the previous episodes of the series. You can't help but feel sorry for these humans who settled on this planet only to begin to shrink and not only that, but the planet is about to explode destroying them all. This episode is worth watching!!
