While searching for the missing crew of a Federation science vessel, Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock and Dr. McCoy are captured and held captive by an intellectually advanced alien race called the Lactrans. Their only hope for escape lies in convincing the Lactrans that they too are intelligent beings and part of an evolving culture, or they will be trapped as zoo specimens for the rest of their lives. Written by David P. Harmon -- who wrote "The Deadly Years" and co-wrote "A Piece of the Action" from "The Original Series" -- "The Eye of the Beholder" falls short of being a great episode of "The Animated Series," but is nevertheless a good one, thanks to the enduring "Star Trek" messages about communication, appreciating inner beauty and embracing that which we do not initially understand.
