When the Enterprise rescues a one-man ship on the edge of the Romulan Neutral Zone, the crew is shocked to discover that the ship is registered to Carter Winston, a famous philanthropist who has been missing for five years. Even more shocked is his fianceé, Anne, a security officer aboard the Enterprise.

How would you react if your long lost fiancé returned to you … and then said he can’t marry you? Ever. Oh yeah, and he’s an alien. And the human he is impersonating is rich—rich in a culture with no money. Those are just some of the issues tackled in “The Survivor.”

In this episode of Saturday Morning Trek, the wood-paneled den gets a visit from Andi VanderKolk of Women at Warp as we tackle this installment of The Animated Series.
