Later in this episode Captain Kirk duels a Puritan in a battle of magic to save the devil. Seriously.
I have these on DVD. I am such a terrible nerd that I've had them on DVD since before they were available on DVD.

Kirk's "this gives me an idea" smile at the end has me worried.
He's channeling Ray Smuckles.
So they introduced fucking MAGIC to a fictional reality that already has teleporters, faster-than-light space travel, and a universe full of anthropoid alien races.
This shouldn't annoy me nearly as much as it does.
Clearly Spock knows how to harness the incredible power of The Secret.
DeForest Kelley clearly wanted to be anywhere but the recording booth that day.
The bizarre thing is that a very few of the animated episodes are actually much less ridiculous than norma; and decent expansions to the series, if you can believe that.
The Harry Mudd one is an example, of course. You can't go wrong with Harry Mudd.
Oh, no doubt about that. The original series had space hippies, a planet where thoughts materialized, rock-beings that re-created Abraham Lincoln and Genghis Khan, an planet full of 20th-century Romans that spoke colloquial English, and "Spock's Brain". You could interchange any of that with any of the animated series and I doubt people would notice.
This is pretty ridiculous even by "Star Trek" standards though.
