VIDEO: Star Trek (TAS) “The Lorelei Signal”

It’s the debut of Saturday Morning Glory with Ryan Lohner, examining some of the most memorably funny episodes in Saturday morning cartoon history!

In the first episode, Ryan recaps the animated Star Trek episode “The Lorelei Signal”, where the Enterprise responds to a sexy distress call, and Kirk and Spock and McCoy all lose their damn minds over a colony of blondes, who turn out to be lifeforce vampires! Uhura and Chapel are forced to take command and rescue the horny bastards, with the help of the Enterprise’s surprisingly hot women’s security team. Watch the video below, and learn all about the hidden dangers of Jazzercise headbands and competitive giant ruby tossing!

And remember, Star Trek: The Animated Series is currently available on DVD. Also, if you like this show’s theme song, you can find it on the indie rock compilation Saturday Morning Cartoons’ Greatest Hits.


Ryan Lohner

Ryan lives in Sparta, New Jersey, a quaint little burg without much for kids to do except go to the movies. Thus began a lifelong love affair, as even back then he grew to love examining why a film worked, or didn't. He is a member of the Sigma Tau Delta English Honor Society, and currently studying for a Master's Degree in Library and Information Science. His hobbies include running, piano, and annoying people with that damn lowercase forum user name.
