|Series||Star Trek: The Animated Series|
|Released||5 Oct 1974|
Stardate 6063.4: While tracking a probe, the Enterprise encounters an alien vessel that is surrounded by an energy field which proceeds to encompass the Federation ship.
The Enterprise is captured by a highly advanced starship piloted by Kulkukan, an ancient being who visited Earth centuries before and was worshiped as a god. Kulkukan beams Kirk, McCoy, Scott, and Ensign Walking Bear aboard his vessel; once there, they find themselves in a city constructed in styles reminiscent of many ancient Earth cultures. While Spock attempts to free the Enterprise from Kulkukan's energy field, Kirk discovers the purpose of the city and frees the interplanetary specimens that Kulkukan had gathered during his travels. Concluding that these Humans do not intend to worship him, Kulkukan leaves.
