Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock are summoned by the Vedalans, the oldest known spacefaring race, to recover a stolen religious artifact called the Soul of Skarr, the theft of which must be kept secret in order to prevent a holy war from enveloping the galaxy. In order to carry out their mission across a volatile and dangerous planetary terrain, Kirk and Spock are teamed with members of other alien races that are experts in their field, but soon after the expedition gets under way, they begin to suspect that there is a traitor in their midst. Written by Stephen Kandell — who wrote “Mudd’s Women” and “I, Mudd” for “The Original Series,” as well as “Mudd’s Passion” for “The Animated Series” — “The Jihad” is an entertaining and exciting adventure that plays to the many strengths that fully defined the very best of “Star Trek," and it brought the first season of “The Animated Series” to an effective and satisfying close.
Guest: Aaron Harvey (co-author, “Star Trek: The Official Guide to The Animated Series”)
