Trivia

Larry Brody had originally sent his script for the third season of the original series Star Trek (1966) but producer Fred Freiberger rejected it. Three years later, he pitched the same idea to Gene Roddenberry for this series. Roddenberry loved the idea and Brody's script. But according to Brody, Roddenberry rewrote the entire script. Brody did not realize this until the episode aired. See more »

Goofs

Around the 5 minute mark, after Lucian first takes Kirk, Spock and McCoy off the Enterprise, McCoy is drawn without the bags under his eyes, making him look quite different and younger. See more »

Wow....the first pro-Satan episode of "Star Trek" I've ever seen!!!
9 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Had this animated version of "Star Trek" been popular and adults watched it when it debuted, no doubt the network would have been swamped with angry letters. The fact that there is no IMDb trivia to that effect says a lot! Why would many parents have been upset with this show? Well, the Enterprise's new friend, Lucien, turns out to be Satan and Captain Kirk comes to his rescue!! Talk about twisted and strange! Unfortunately, while this episode clearly pushed the envelope, it was so badly written that I doubt if many folks will ever see it an take notice of its bizarro plot!

The Enterprise heads to the center of the galaxy to study the creation of all life. Instead, they meet a strange guy who looks like Pan and uses 'magick' to make cool things happen. Spock gets with program and soon starts doing 'magick' and soon everyone is on friendly terms with Lucien/Satan.

The show has the dumbest dialog and combined with the excremental animation, it's really a chore to watch this one. Incredibly strange and dumb...hail Satan!!!
