Background information[]

In 1973, after the initial contract for the series had run out, NBC ordered another six episodes to be made for the following year. These were the last episodes of the original animated series made, making a total of 22. They were also the last animated episodes of Star Trek until ST: "Ephraim and Dot" and ST: "The Girl Who Made the Stars", 45 years later.

These episodes first aired in September and October 1974, but NBC continued airing the series in re-runs through 1975.

Aside from the seven regular cast members and a silent appearance of Mr. Kyle in "Bem", no other characters from the original Star Trek appear in this season.
