Star Trek (TAS) “How Sharper than a Serpent's Tooth” (part 3 of 4)
Kirk shushes Bones… and Scotty too, for good measure, in case the guy happens to find a case of Glenfiddich somewhere. Oh, but Walkingbear can keep talking. Either Kirk thinks Walkingbear will say something useful, or say something stupid and distract Kukulcan at a key moment and die.
Kukulcan says humans strayed from the path he set for them. Kirk points out that they can’t worship Kukulcan if they don’t remember him, so Kukulcan says if they don’t know him, it’s his task to teach them. He then transports them to what looks like an alien pet store.
Bones says that just once, he wishes he would let them use the stairs. I’ve noticed in watching these episodes, there’s maybe one honestly funny line in each one. The gang points out how cruel keeping these animals in cages is, and Kukulcan explains each one is in their own virtual world.
I shudder to think what the derpysaurus is seeing.
