"The Slaver Weapon" was the 14th episode of Star Trek: The Animated Series, later novelized by Alan Dean Foster in Star Trek Log Ten.

DescriptionEdit

Another exciting episode from television's most popular science fiction series.
Complete in this volume: Slaver Weapon.
A Slaver stasis box—a relic of a fabulous, long-dead civilization—is discovered on a remote planet. The Slavers died out milennia ago, but their powerful weapons have been well preserved in these boxes which are found throughout the galaxy.
Whoever possesses such weapons controls a lot of power, and so Kirk and the crew want to get this one into secure hands as quickly as possible.
But they are not the only ones who have designs on the Slaver weapon… and the fate of the Federation hangs in the balance!

AppendicesEdit

  • This is the tenth and final of Alan Dean Foster's TAS adaptations which have been reprinted a number of times, often in omnibuses with other Star Trek Log books. Most recently in 2006 by Del Rey Books as part of Star Trek's 40th Anniversary celebrations. In fact this was also the first Star Trek Book published by Del Rey after it was created as an imprint of the publisher of the rest of the Star Trek Logs series Ballantine Books.
  • The episode itself was adapted by Larry Niven from his 1967 story, "The Soft Weapon." The characters of Sulu, Uhura, and Spock replaced the characters from the original story, Jason and Anne-Marie Pompadou, and the Pierson's Puppeteer, Nessus. Also, there are a few other, minor differences from the short story to the episode.
