Vexilloids from Star Trek: The Animated Series 1973
Star Trek: The Animated Series was slated at a children's time slot, yet it was mostly watched by adults with adult themes. Basically it was a second chance at life for the Star Trek storyline and much of the original cast starred in this cartoon series.
Classic American Anime, it used a simple and cheaper method to animate the show, which saw that it became its own kind of signature and enchanting art form.
Of particular interest to vexillology is the episode that takes place on Star Date 5499.9 or locally broadcast to Earth on December 1, 1973 was The Ambergris Element.
The natives to the water planet genetically modify Kirk and Spock to breathe underwater. The leader carries a staff with a white sea shell trident as the finial.
