We're excited to be joined on "Enterprise Incidents" by New York Times-bestselling author Howard Weinstein, who wrote "The Pirates of Orion" for "Star Trek: The Animated Series" when he was 19-year-old!
While en route to the planet Deneb V to attend a Federation conference, the Enterprise alters course to rendezvous with the S.S. Huron after Mr. Spock falls ill from a rare disease. The Huron is carrying the only known cure, but it is also carrying a sizable shipment of precious dilithuim. When an Orion ship attacks to seize both shipments, Captain Kirk must race against time to secure the counteragent for the disease, or Mr. Spock will die. "The Pirates of Orion" was the first episode of the otherwise brief second season of "The Animated Series" (running only six episodes), but it started the season on a strong note with an exciting story about the close relationship between Kirk, Spock and McCoy, making it feel like a vintage episode of "Star Trek."
