Storyline

While on a mapping mission, the Enterprise receives an outdated transmission from the star Cephas. A flash of light from its lone, volcanic planet passes through the ship and disables all dilithium crystals. Soon thereafter, the crew begins to shrink. With no cure in sight, it becomes increasingly difficult for the Starfleet officers to handle the ship's controls. Written by The TV Archaeologist

Quotes

Doctor McCoy: Jim, you don't mean you're going to abandon the mapping mission to check out some meaningless signal?
Captain James T. Kirk: Meaningless at the moment, Bones, but it was sent twice. Odds against that occuring in a totally random transmission are too high to ignore.

A Real Short Story
19 March 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

In this episode, circumstances involving a volcanic planet cause the Enterprise crew to begin shrinking. As they get tinier and tinier, they must activate their ship's functions in creative ways. The question is why is this happening to them. We eventually find the answer as we watch an intergalactic version of "Horton Hears a Who." As is often the case with Star Trek, the characters seem to be able to land on their feet without the help of any real research. The final solution to all this is quite laughable.
