Aaron Harvey and returning guest co-host Joe Slepski review the only original series episode, live action or animated, not to feature Captain Kirk, "The Slaver Weapon". Written by sci-fi literary master Larry Niven this animated story combines his ‘Known Space’ universe with the Star Trek universe, well kind of.

Some of the probing questions Aaron and Joe ask are: Is Starfleet stealing stasis boxes from Kizin? Is Uhura really remorseless killer? And were the Slavers, the species that concurred the galaxy a billion years ago really just a Scooby-Doo villain? Grab a box of Pink Panther Flakes (yes, that was a real cereal in 1973) and join us as we watch pink suited space cats try to defeat our heroes with outdated laser guns.
