This was the best of the 22 animated Star Trek episodes. It was a candid look at Spock's difficult childhood. It was written by DC Fontana, who wrote many good Spock-oriented episodes for the original ST series, and who later went on to write for other sci-fi and mainstream productions. As with all 22 animated ST's the strengths were the voices by most of the original series actors, the production involvement of Gene Roddenberry, the musical score, the storyboards, and the backgrounds. The weaknesses were the character animation, the sound editing, and the clipped dialogue."

The Slaver Weapon 6 out of 5 stars

Reviewed by: Sam Hoskins, June 04, 2001

This was the most unusual of the 22 animated Star Trek episodes from Filmation/Paramount. It only had three characters from The Enterprise: Spock, Sulu, and Uhura, a very good trio who could have been the basis for many stories. Despite the studio credits, no other characters from the regular series appeared. The episode was written by SF writer Larry Niven, who adapted significant elements of his fictional universe into the ST story. The extinct race of the Slavers and the carnivorous cat-like Kzinti were such elements. Because of copyright protections of these elements in print, this was the only animated ST episode which could not be later adapted to print (by Alan Dean Foster). "
