Trivia

This is the only episode in which Dr. McCoy's daughter, Joanna, is mentioned. She was to be featured in Star Trek: The Way to Eden (1969) which was originally titled "Joanna". But this idea was dropped. See more »

Quotes

Doctor McCoy: [surprised to see the captured shape-shifter escorted by a guard] You caught him.
Mr. Spock: Acute observation, Doctor.
Doctor McCoy: I'm glad to see him under guard, Jim. If he'd turned into a second Spock, it would have been too much to take.
Mr. Spock: Perhaps. But then two Dr. McCoys just might bring the level of medical efficiency on this ship up to acceptable levels.

Stupid woman.....
9 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is yet another episode of the horribly animated "Star Trek" cartoon series. While the 1960s and 70s were a terrible time for animation, the horrid quality of this show sets it apart--being even crappier than the stuff coming from Hanna-Barbera! With slide show- like animation, it's hard to imagine much worse!

When the show begins, somehow the Enterprise locates Carter Winston- -a famous explorer who's been lost for several years. However, soon it becomes apparent that it's NOT Winston--it's something more akin to Squiddly Diddly! But this squid-like being can assume all sorts of forms--human and non-human as well as non-living! But when the creature takes them into the Neutral Zone and the Romulans show up, the crew is forced to deal with TWO menaces at the same time.

This is a fair episode but suffers not just from the craptastic animation but the female guest character who is an idiot. I assume if the show had been made today, in addition to better animation it would also feature a female character who isn't dumber than a zucchini.
