Dr. McCoy (voice)
Sulu (voice)
Uhura (voice)
Cosmic Cloud (voice)


A huge cosmic cloud is reported moving into the outer fringe of the galaxy. Starfleet Command sends the Enterprise to investigate. Sensors indicate it is a strange combination of Matter & Energy. It seems to engulf and feed on the energy of planets. It makes a deliberate course change to head towards the populated planet of Mantilles indicating that it could be intelligent. Kirk sees it as a threat to every planet in the galaxy and if they can't communicate with it and make it stop it will have to be destroyed. Written by tomtrekp

Mr. Spock: Captain, I have completed the analysis of the target area. Unfortunately, the brain is so vast, our entire offensive armament will not assure its destruction. However, the brain could e completely destroyed if we convert the entire ship to energy aimed at the brain's cortex and expand the energy in one mortal strike.
Doctor McCoy: That sounds like you're telling us to blow up the ship.
Mr. Spock: I believe that is what I just said, doctor.

Rather familiar but with a totally silly ending.
9 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode of the animated "Star Trek" is very reminiscent of several other Trek episodes--particularly "The Doomsday Machine" and especially "The Immunity Syndrome". Because of its familiarity, Trekkies will probably like it since it seems much more like a real Trek show than the previous episodes. On the other hand, it's not exactly original and the ending is pretty stupid.

There's a planet-eating cloud in space. It's going to eat Mantilles and kill millions unless the Enterprise can stop it. But there is a problem--the Prime Directive doesn't want Federation craft killing other life--and the cloud is alive! So what will they do? Yup-- call on Spock to do a mild meld with this thingie and ask it to leave, of course! You just have to see this part of the show--it's unintentionally funny.

I gave this one a 5 because like all these cartoons, the animation totally sucks and the story idea not exactly original.
