While exploring a strange new world on the outer reaches of the galaxy, the landing party from the Enterprise discovers the planet to be inhabited by an intelligent race of plants led by the giant clone of Dr. Stavos Keniclius, a scientist who hails from the era of the Eugenics Wars on Earth. But soon after being lured into his lair, his true motives become clear: to clone a giant version of Mr. Spock and lead a master race that will act as a peace-keeping force throughout the galaxy. Just like Dr. Tristan Adams from "Dagger of the Mind" and Dr. Roger Korby from "What Are Little Girls Made Of?," Dr. Stavos Keniclius continues the "Star Trek" tradition of featuring a mad scientist who is acting with noble intentions. But "The Infinite Vulcan" -- written by Walter Koenig (who played Chekov in "The Original Series") -- was also ahead of its time for featuring a story on cloning many years before scientists first accomplished that feat. The result is an episode that, just like every episode of "The Animated Series" up to this point, lives up to the standards established by "The Original Series" and feels like a vintage episode of "Star Trek."
