Not a Lot Here

This series just ran out of gas. A probe has attacked the Enterprise. It has the form of an ancient Mayan god. Fortunately, the Enterprise just happens to have a Comanche helmsman on board and he is able to talk to the thing. Kirk and his officers are beamed to a planetary surface where they must deal with this old god. Meanwhile, the Enterprise is in some impregnable bubble and Spock now must figure out out to get out. Just another day at the office for the writers and the animators (boy the animation is terrible on these episodes).
