Storyline

The Enterprise reconnoiters an anomalous object that has drained three emergency power stations. And in the process, Captain Kirk must take on a being he never thought he'd see again: Apollo. Now visibly aged, Apollo wants to live out what years remain to him in peace. But can he really lay aside his imperative for worship? Or will he always remain a positive menace to everyone around him? Written by Terry A. Hurlbut

Goofs

When Kirk carries the unconscious Uhura into Sickbay and places her on the biobed, her head slumps off to her right on the pillow. In a subsequent close-up, her head is straight and she's facing the ceiling. The following wide shot shows her with her head slumped off to her right. And then, after the life-sign monitors show that she's dead, her head slumps off to her left. See more »

Quotes

Paladin: I'd like you to take a look at this gun. It's handcrafted to my specifications. Balance is excellent. The trigger responds to a pressure of one ounce.
Captain James T. Kirk: I'm quite familiar with the piece. Perhaps we could talk about this.
Paladin: I rarely draw it unless I mean to use it. Care for a demonstration?
Mr. Scott: Freeze program. Was she everything I promised, sir?
Captain James T. Kirk: And more! I've never seen a holographic program this detailed before. I swear I can almost smell the gun oil.
Mr. Scott: Aye, well she's still in the experimental stage, ...

A sequel to "who morns for Adonis?" with the original actor who played Apollo, Micahel Forest, back as a "prematurely aged" Apollo.

The set, sfx and visual style are all very well done and very much in keeping with the original. The cinematographer has a real good grasp of the original style.

The guy playing Kirk who is also listed as director and co-producer is trying a bit too... hard... to... be William Shatner, and the guy playing Spock is a bit wooden.

The actor playing McCoy is okay but I get no feeling of DeForest Kelley at all. Particularly missing is the southern charm McCoy had.

Scotty is the best of the bunch, but he actually is James Doohan's son, and has done Scotty in the past for an animated trek.

The young lady playing Uhura isn't too bad either... she at least has a "feel" like Nichelle Nichols, especially in a singing sequence in the rec room.

The best actor of course is Michael Forest as Apollo who carries the episode on his shoulder, but he's an old stage and screen hand and arguably the only seasoned professional of the bunch.

The writing was also surprisingly good, very much in keeping with the old series. The moral of the story was a bit heavy handed, but Star trek often could be.

All in all, it was fun for an original Trekker to watch the "kids" doing "our thing."
