As a fan of the original Star Trek series, I was overjoyed when the animated series aired and sad when it ended. I remember being impressed with the quality of the animation at the time and was impressed once again when I watched this tape. Produced in 1973, the animation was state of the art and allowed the producers to create space scenes that would have been impossible with human actors.
In the first episode, “The Survivor”, the Enterprise encounters a damaged ship and beams aboard what appears to be a human. He is a famous man who has used his fortune to come to the aid of people in distress. Lost five years earlier, he passes all biometric identification tests, although there are some anomalies in his medical tests. Furthermore, his fiancé from before his being lost in space is on board the Enterprise. The man is in fact a creature that is capable of assuming any form and of rendering humans unconscious for short periods of time. It renders Captain Kirk unconscious, assumes his form and orders the Enterprise into the neutral zone with the Romulans. The creature also sabotages the ship, rendering it vulnerable to attack.
The problem is discovered, but before the Enterprise can return to Federation space, it is surrounded by the Romulans. Kirk realizes that the creature is a Romulan spy and refuses to surrender the ship. A battle ensues and he is able to extricate the Enterprise.
In the second episode, “The Lorelei Signal”, the Enterprise is sent to a region of space where a star ship has disappeared on a precise schedule for many years. When the appropriate time arrives, the ship receives a strangely compelling signal. While it renders the men listless and easily manipulated, although it has no affect on the women.

You know because this Star Trek series was animated it could stand head and shoulders above the classic TV series in terms of effects.And the WRITING is actually as good making these episodes in particular seem more like an actual Trek
show then a Saturday morning cartoon.In "The Survivor" a shape-
shifting alien impersonates a galactic philanthropist and nearly
breaks the heart of an Enterprise crew member.In "The Lorelei Signal" Kirk and comapny are hoodwinked by a matriachal society
who live forever by draining energy from men (KINKY!) and
Uhura is featured in her COOLEST moment yet as she takes command of the Enterprise. (...) Another victory for
womens lib!I enjoyed this as a gift when I was 10 years old
(because I always liked cartoons) but I loved Star Trek more
and this has both!And I do enjoy Filmation's retro-style animation!Must for Trekkers and Trekker's to be!

The Survivor has one of the best aliens of all the TAS shows. The Vendorian foreshadows the changeling Odo by 20 years. The story has a good moral too. The Lorelei Signal is classic Sci-Fi, and features Uhura taking command for the first time. I recommend this video to all interested in the animated Star Trek!
