On the planet Phylos, the Enterprise crew encounters a geneticist from the Eugenics Wars in the form of a clone. A giant clone. And he wants to duplicate Spock in his own image as part of a plan to create a galactic peacekeeping force. What could possibly go wrong? On this planet of sentient foliage, Kirk and crew must dodge purple plants that look like tribbles on stilts, flying dragon plants with springs instead of legs, and shields that nearly drain the dilithium crystals—all in an effort to save Spock!

In this episode of Saturday Morning Trek, we're joined by Andi VanderKolk as we try and weed through this giggle-worthy episode to find the katra at the center: What happens to a warrior who becomes obsolete in an age of peace? We also ponder how can we bring The Animated Series back into the fold in this new age of Star Trek.

Saturday Morning Trek would also like to welcome aboard Mike Bovia, our second associate producer! Want to become a patron of the network yourself? Just go to www.patreon.com/trekfm and become part of the team!
