[TAS] The Ambergris Element

[TAS] Season 1, Episode 12: The Ambergris Elementthe ambergris element

Rating: SKIP (For The Animated Series we use a simpler Watch or Skip rating) 

Blandly straight-forward plot that seems to only exist because the writers thought it would be cool for Spock and Kirk to have gills and swim around.

    Under the last picture there is text that seems very familiar.

    The text that is included needs to continue with:

    “Wanderin’ free
    Wish they could be
    Part of that world.”

    The English pronoun “they” is essential.
