Spock, Uhura, and Sulu are en-route on a shuttlecraft to deliver a Slaver Stasis box - an artifact from a long-dead civilization inside of which time stands still - to Starbase 25. On their way, the box gives off a signal that another box is nearby. Investigating, they determine that the 2nd box is on a ice world. Once there, they are captured by the Kzinti, a feline race that wish to return to their dominance they once had. The Kzinti hope that the others' stasis box holds a means to do that. One thing in that box is a device of sorts that transforms into various devices: a Slaver Weapon. Knowing that in the wrong hands, the Slaver Weapon could bring havoc to the galaxy, Spock and his team escape and try to get the weapon back. While attempting to activate a computer form of the weapon, the Kzinti Captain unwittingly activates a self-destruct bomb which destroys itself and the Kzinti's ship.

Crap...pure crap.
10 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I have gone through over half of the old "Star Trek" cartoons and am completely convinced that the average 8th grader could easily produce a better cartoon. The frame rates are pathetic--sort of like watching a slide show because there is so little movement in the characters. And, as for the characters, again, a talented 8th grader could do just as well. However, he'd also have to be a color-blind 8th grader, as the 'enemy', the Kzinti, are ridiculous looking cat-like humanoids in pink and purple jumpsuits! Yick!

The entire show consists of a landing party (NO KIRK!) trying to get weapons from a dead slaver ship. This is because they don't want this high tech stuff getting into the hands of jerks--like the Kzinti. When they meet these catty creatures, there isn't much action...but I did like it when Uhura ran away and one Kzinti told the other to capture her because Human females are so smart!

Overall, this is a pathetically drawn mess with barely any real plot and totally stupid characters. Really, this is an embarrassment to offer to the Trek fans...though the die-hard ones will love it, as they love anything with the Trek name on it. Others avoid at all costs.
