Trivia

This was the last "Star Trek" production until Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) five years later. This is the longest period of time in which the franchise lay dormant. See more »

Goofs

No reason is given as to why the crew de-age so quickly. They were only in the negative universe a few days at most. While they would de-age, it would not even be noticeable. They certainly would not have become children. See more »

Quotes

Capt. Kirk: Gentlemen, I'm sure none of us mind growing younger instead of older for a change.
Commodore Robert April: It pleases me, Jim. If we stay here long enough I'll no longer be at the mandatory retirement age.

An Interesting Conclusion
2 April 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I don't know if there is any science that supports what happened here, but there are good intentions all around and a solid message. By trying to do good, the Enterprise cause some serious damage and has to find a way out of it. An alien vessel is heading into a nova and they try to stop it, not realizing that they were on a necessary trip. We have a preposterous solution, but every episode of this animated series was preposterous.
