Stardate 6063.4: Kirk and his crew are trying to pinpoint the origin of a vessel which recently scanned Earth’s solar system and then transmitted its finds toward unknown coordinates with a very powerful signal. But before the crew even expects to find an answer to this puzzle, an unidentified ship approaches, trapping the Enterprise in an energy field and kidnapping four officers including Kirk. The being aboard the vessel claims to be Kulkukan, a godlike creature from ancient Aztec legend – and at the moment, a rather angry one, since no one on Earth has worshipped him in many centuries. The creature challenges Kirk and the others to a test of logic. The prize if the humans win is the gift of Kulkukan’s boundless knowledge – and if they lose, the punishment is death for the entire crew of the Enterprise.
Guest Voice Cast: James Doohan (Kulkukan), James Doohan (Ensign Walking Bear), Nichelle Nichols (Female officer), James Doohan (Male officer)
