Star Trek (TAS) “The Infinite Vulcan” (part 3 of 4)

Back on the planet’s surface, Sulu says there’s no indication they’re being scanned, so the thimbleheads and Mr. Not-A-Plant must not know they’re there. In a truly bizarre sequence, Kirk kind of glides towards some sort of wooded area, and peers tentatively through an opening in the foliage, then backs away fearfully. And then the Spaghetti Dragons are squawking overhead once again.

Sulu says, “They’re almost mindless, Doctor!” Who, the animators? The writer? Anyone who willingly watches this episode? He adds that the Spaghetti Dragons only attack as a reflex action, and for some reason, it’s “clear now.” The trio then stumbles into a giant hangar, where a dozen or so rockets are being cleared of moss by… yes, those thimbleheads that they were so keen to avoid.
