Star Trek The Animated Series.
In Star Trek TAS "Lorelei signal" Klingon and Federation starships
have been disappearing in "bermuda" space once every 27 years. When the USS Enterprise
arrives to investigate the Taurean II system, a mysterious signal
causes the male crew to see a flood of pretty alien women from
another world. The "signal" is in fact an audiovisual illusion
which casts a spell on the Enterprise's male crew.
The men, Captain Kirk, Spock, Dr McCoy and redshirt Carver are drawn to the mysterious siren call, blissfully unaware that they are in fact under a spell. Cunning
females on Taurus II medicate their drinks with nectar causing
dizziness. Why those sneaky little vixons!
Ahead of its time, Star Trek is first, addressing social issues
affecting easy targets set upon by predators. In a twist of fate
the show demonstrates what can happen when drugs seduce
unsuspecting victims. Only this time, Captain Kirk's pals are taken
by complete surprise!
Fitted with golden headbands that drain their life energies, Kirk's
friends get old and feeble minded quite rapidly. For the first and only time in Star Trek history, Uhura gets to command the ship and lead the away mission on the planets surface. In case you were
wondering, a compound in Dr McCoys Medkit called Cortropine delays aging long enough for Lieutenant Uhura's crack team to rescue them.
Theela, the aliens leader of Taurean II explains. After
their men died, the women survived by preying on unsuspecting fall
guys. Fortunately the Enterprise
transporter records the original molecular patterns allowing Mr Spock's gamble to save the day.
Live Long and Prosper, Trekkers.
