[TAS] Season 2, Episode 5: How Sharper Than a Serpent’s Tooth
Rating: WATCH (For The Animated Series we use a simpler WATCH or Skip rating)
This episode has some great imagery and fun ideas. The concept is a fun one too, kind of similar to contemporary ding-bat fascinations with ancient Earth having been visited by aliens that helped us with our construction projects, but this puts a little spin on it – There’s only one alien and he’s like our sad dad.

There’s a new character named Walking Bear.
Enterprise gets trapped in a (space) bubble
Then a weird ship appears…
…and gets weirder!
Ohhhhh so THAT’S why Walking Bear is in this episode, to tell us stuff like this thing is Kukulkan.
Kukulkan takes them to a fantasy city that has qualities of various ancient Earth cultures. The crew has to solve a puzzle.
So Kukulkan shows up again. He’s annoyed that no one knows who he is.
He shows them where he keeps all the species that he’s interacted with throughout history. He keeps them there because he’s lonely :(
So Kirk starts wrecking up the place.
Don’t mess with a Capellan power-cat!
Meanwhile Enterprise breaks free of the bubble and starts firing on Kukulkan’s dragon ship thingy.
Kukulkan just wanted to teach people stuff, but Kirk says he’s gotta loosen up man.
