The Enterprise follows a propulsion trail left behind by an alien space probe that scanned Earth, only to become trapped by an alien ship that takes the form of a massive winged serpent. The Enterprise helmsman, Ensign Walking Bear, recognizes the form as Kukulkan, a deity whose presence on Earth traces back to ancient Aztec and Mayan civilizations. After all this time, Kukulkan has returned and demands to be worshipped by the Enterprise crew. Of course, Captain Kirk isn't going to let that happen. With "The Animated Series" winding down, it went out on a high note with its penultimate episode, "How Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth," which was the first "Star Trek" episode to feature a Native American as an Enterprise crew member. It also has the distinction of being the episode that won "Star Trek" its 1975 Emmy Award for Outstanding Entertainment: Children's Program (it also won the Peabody Award). No animated TV series could go out on a higher note than that.
