"Once Upon a Planet" was the ninth episode of Star Trek: The Animated Series. It was produced in TAS season 1 and debuted on 3 November 1973. The episode was directed by Hal Sutherland and written by Len Janson and Chuck Menville. It was the seventh episode to be novelized by Alan Dean Foster, appearing in Star Trek: Log Three in December 1974.

In this sequel to TOS episode: "Shore Leave", the Amusement Park Planet's sentient Master Computer sought a new mission.

DescriptionEdit

The crew of the USS Enterprise returns to a fantasy land planet they once visited for shore leave. But this time the world seems to have lost its charm. This episode is a sequel to the original Star Trek television episode "Shore Leave".

Log entriesEdit

Episode log entriesEdit

Captain's log, stardate 5591.2. The crew of the Enterprise is ready for some well-deserved rest and recreation. Therefore we have set course for the so-called "Shore Leave Planet" located in the Omicron Delta region. The uninhabited planet was constructed long ago by a highly advanced alien race. Its sole purpose is to provide fun and amusement for space traveling passers-by.

Captain's log, supplemental. We anticipated nothing more than a period of rest and relaxation on this planet. Instead, Doctor McCoy inexplicably was attacked and Lieutenant Uhura is now missing.

Captain's log, supplemental. We're out of communication with the ship. Our efforts to locate Lieutenant Uhura have been futile, and this once friendly planet has become very dangerous.

Novelization log entriesEdit

Captain's log, stardate 5510.1. The crew of the Enterprise is ready for some well-deserved rest and recreation. And the sooner the better. Mr. Spock informs me that normal ship efficiency is down twenty-two percent from the standard level — due in part to anticipation of Omicron planetfall.

Having secured the situation on Phylos and submitted the information concerning the mutant clone Stavos Keniclius V and mutant Spock Two – clone of our first officer – to Starfleet sector headquarters, I requested that the crew be granted something special in the way of shore leave. Said request to visit the Omicron region was duly submitted and approved.

Course was set and traced without incident. We are now approaching the so-called 'shore-leave' world. Those studying this log may recall that this particular planet was programmed long ago by some unknown but highly advanced alien race. The extremely complex machinery installed there is designed solely to provide fun and amusement for interstellar passersby. Its extensive mind-reading devices and attendant manufacturing machinery are capable of materializing any fantasy they can pick up. I confess to looking forward to our return to this planet myself.

Captain's log, supplemental. We are out of communications with the ship. In addition, all our efforts so far to locate Lieutenant Uhura have been ... insufficient. This once friendly world, for reasons still known, has turned implacably hostile toward visitors. We would all like to know what has turned its former ambience to anger ... more than anger. But for the moment, our thoughts are concerned foremost with the well-being of our first communications officer.
