What happens when the Enterprise encounters a living cloud that feeds on the planets that lie in its path? Spock uses a Vulcan mind touch to communicate with the entity, of course! And thanks to his Vulcan persuasion, he convinces it that killing sentient life is not good and nudges it back to its place of origin. Day saved!

In this episode of Saturday Morning Trek, hosts Aaron Harvey and Darren Moser review this animated adventure that follows all the tenants of a good TOS episode. The crew puts their best foot forward offering solutions to the problem at hand, revisits a friend from Kirk's past, and shows off a part of the ship we've never seen before!

In other news, there actually is news about The Animated Series just in time for the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek, and we will you in on why it might make you feel Blu. Plus, we hear a very special story from one of our listeners about how “Yesteryear” affected her childhood.
