YMMV: Star Trek: The Animated Series

  • Animation Age Ghetto
  • Draco in Leather Pants: "The Magicks of Megas-Tu" - to clarify, the episode provides an Alternative Character Interpretation of a being who claims to have inspired the Biblical figure of Satan.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Lt. M'Ress, for fairly obvious reasons.
  • Fridge Logic / Wild Mass Guessing: In "Mudd's Passion", a Love Potion-drugged Spock not only declares over-the-top romantic devotion to Christine Chapel, but also he begins acting more affectionate towards Kirk, with whom he already has a bond. Does that drug create relationships...or only bring to light what is there?
  • Fridge Brilliance: Although the Standards and Practices applicable to 1970's children's programming would never have permitted outright saying so, the nature of the the weapon found in the stasis box in "The Slaver Weapon", along with a picture of an unknown alien, suggest that the weapon was that of an assassin, and the picture that of the assassin's target. Sulu does suggest that the weapon could have been used by a spy, who would have need for an easily-concealable, versatile, and self-destructing weapon—an assassin or hitman would have similar needs as well.
  • Narm: Sometimes the limited number of voice actors could make things a little silly, as in "The Lorelei Signal," when Nichelle Nichols and Majel Barrett had to voice, like, seven different people.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: Filmation was unable to use the original theme song, so the opening theme for the animated series was a new song that almost sounded like, as the Agony Booth put it, "the TOS theme played sideways".
