A group a specialists are assembled to track down a stolen artifact that will start a war. Spock was chosen for his analytic mind, and Kirk because he’s the main character.
They get debriefed by this weird cat with poor posture. There are a lot of different cat aliens in the animated series.
hey they get a little car for their mission
They have to out-run some lava
This planet has crazy climates that keep changing
This lady keeps hitting on Kirk. I don’t quite understand her character. She says she’s a human, but clearly has a culture that is very different. She was selected for her sense of direction, but they treat it like it’s a super power. She knows where to go on a planet she’s never been to before, in search of something she’s never seen before
The bug, whose name is Em/3/Green, was selected for his lock-picking abilities
What’s going on with his eyes?
They get attacked by the same purple things that we’ve seen on two other planets. They take the bird guy away
They find the thing, but are trapped
The bird guy isn’t really on their side!
He likes fair fights though, so he turns the gravity off so they can fly too
Then the good guys win. Why is the bird guy standing there with them? Because this is TAS and they reuse shots.
