* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: Apparently, Keniclus' master plan won't work without making Spock ''enormous'', the better to force everyone to be peaceful, apparently. (He himself is also a giant.)


Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityNod: Sulu is quite interested in the plant life of Phylos, harking back to his garden in one episode of the live-action series.


Added DiffLines:

* ShootTheDog: Young Spock is forced to make this choice in "Yesteryear" when his pet sehlat, I-Chaya, takes an attack for him. The local healer tells him that he ''can'' save I-Chaya, but the creature's venom would leave him in constant pain. Spock chooses the MercyKill.


Added DiffLines:

* WizardDuel: Kirk takes on Asmodeus, the leader of the Megans in "The Magicks of Megas-Tu" despite being hopelessly outclasssed.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Somehow they got away with having Kirk and co. befriend Satan--yes, ''that'' Satan--in "The Magics of Megas-Tu", in the guise of "Lucien." He's presented as a TricksterArchetype.

Given the reality that it was produced by Creator/{{Filmation}}, the animation is typically the studio's ultra-cheap style. However, they more than made up for that with most of the original cast and the writers as well. The result is a show that might not have the best animation, but still boasts spectacular imagery and believably non-human aliens that the original show could never depict, while still reasonably keeping to its artistic spirit. As a result, this series is the best example of the AnimatedAdaptation concept in UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfAnimation, and was so good that it won the franchise's first ever Emmy Award.

!! This series provides {{aver|tedTrope}}sions of:
* LighterAndFluffier: One of the main reasons given by Creator/GeneRoddenberry as to why he chose Creator/{{Filmation}} out of all the animation companies who made a pitch at doing ''The Animated Series'' is because they were the only company who didn't suggest giving the ''Enterprise'' crew "funny animal sidekicks". Interestingly, ''after'' getting the job, the idea apparently did surface at pre-production meetings... but it was quickly (and rightly) kyboshed by Roddenberry. Regardless, Filmation didn't let the concept of "funny sidekicks in space" go to waste, and created the live-action series ''Series/SpaceAcademy'' a few years later.

** Dawson Walking Bear (Comanche) was originally supposed to be in "The Patient Parasites". Fontana didn't really know what to do with him, but Russell Bates (Kiowa) included him in "How Sharper". He appears in three ''Star Trek: Phase Two'' fan film episodes. He is played by [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3900115/ Wayne W. Johnson]], who says he actually has no Native heritage.
