My favorite part of the episode is a simple shot of the ship flying past the planet as Scotty sings Welsh ballads from the captain's chair. With each passing week, it becomes more clear that The Animated Series was James Doohan's opportunity to shine.
In a more challenging part of the story, our heroes use the transporter to revert back to their younger selves after their adventures leave them prematurely aged. One wonders why people don't use the technology in this way more often. The transporter could be the fountain of youth humanity has sought for countless generations. In fact, the TNG episode "Rascals" incorporates the transporter in a similar way.
