YATI : The crew of the U.S.S. Ariel are wearing the insignia of the Enterprise, something that should not happen during the TOS timeframe.
Great Moment :
Body Count :
Factoid : My year for this episode is estimated from the Stardate; it is one of a group of TAS episodes set between 'For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky' and 'Is There in Truth no Beauty?'

Plotline

Searching for the missing starship Ariel, Kirk, beams down to the planet Lactra VII. His landing party is captured by the locals, huge slug-like creatures who are holding the Ariel crew in a zoo-like facility. Kirk must convince the Lactrans that it is wrong to hold less intelligent lifeforms captive.

Analysis

A by-the-numbers story which parallels many others, most notably "The Cage", but which lacks any real originality or interest. Again the makers used the animated format to give us non-Humanoid aliens, which is nice. Beyond that, though, there is little to reccomend this episode.
