Following a successful mission to deliver medical supplies to a planet in the Dramian star system, Dr. McCoy is accused of causing a plague that wiped out the population of another planet where he performed a mass inoculation many years before. In an effort to investigate the charges, Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock take the Enterprise to Dramia II, where they meet a plague survivor who turns out to be a key witness in McCoy's defense. But soon after they beam back to the Enterprise, the entire crew falls ill, except for the immune Mr. Spock, who now has to race against time to find a cure and save the crew. While rebounding significantly from "The Practical Joker," "Albatross" still falls short of the best of "The Animated Series" due to a flawed teleplay that's ripe with contrivances. But as always, it has its merits, and in true "Star Trek" fashion, "Albatross" is redeemed by the core relationship between Kirk, Spock and McCoy, in which two of them will do anything to save the other.
