Slaver Empire. This empire was master of the galaxy a billion years ago. One race revolted, war followed and the Slavers and all of their subjects were exterminated. (The Slaver Weapon. [TAS]).

Slavers. The first known image of a Slaver came from the stasis box that was in transit to Starbase 25 and opened by the Kzinti. They were a green skinned reptilian race. The Kzinti analysed the Slaver flesh in this box and found it to be poisonous to them. (The Slaver Weapon. [TAS]).

Spock.* In 2269 Spock erected a low frequency shield around the navigation console to protect it from the malignant alien. He also calculated the required slingshot effect trajectory mentally so as not to alert the alien by using the ship's computers of which it was now in control. (Beyond the Farthest Star. [TAS]). He returned back through the Guardian of Forever into an alternate timeline to find he no longer existed. He had died aged seven while undertaking a personal test prior to his kahs-wan ritual. In this timeline the first officer was an Andorian, Commander Thelin. While he was in Orion's past other members of the history team had been looking at the last recent Vulcan history and thereby altered it. He returned via the time portal to Vulcan's past to restore the timeline passing himself off there as Selek and saved the young Spock . The young Spock had been followed into the desert by his pet sehlat that was attacked and poisoned by a le-matya. 'Selek' disabled the le-matya with a Vulcan nerve pinch that he later taught to his young self. Young Spock's trek to summon a Healer failed to save the pet's life. (Yesteryear. [TAS]). Billy Simpson voiced the part of Young Spock. He established a Vulcan mind-meld with the cosmic being and persuaded it to leave the galaxy. (One of Our Planets Is Missing. [TAS]). Spock imagined a Vulcan marriage drum when the Enterprise was probed by the Taurean settlers. He aged when the headband fitted by them drained his energy. He estimated that the landing party was aging at a rate of ten years per day but the effect was less on him because of his longer lifespan. After they escaped he returned to use the Opto-aud to locate a communicator to contact the Enterprise. Back on the Enterpise the ageing Spock calculated that the odds against the transporter restoring the landing party to their correct age was 99.7 to 1. (The Lorelei Signal. [TAS]). The Phylosians used a swooper to abduct him. Having been cloned into Spock Two he was dying, mindless, until his clone Vulcan mind-melded with him. (The Infinite Vulcan. [TAS]). Standing in a pentacle drawn on the floor of the Enterprise he is able to remotely move a Vulcan chess piece using the magic power that exists at Megas-Tu. He was abducted with Kirk and Lucien and the rest of the Enterprise crew and put on trial for crimes against the Megans in Salem, Massachusetts. (The Magicks of Megas-Tu. [TAS]). McCoy injects him with melenex to feign injury and lure the amusement park computer. He is abducted by a hover robot. As a successful conclusion to the reform of computer Spock agreed to continue discussions with it. (Once Upon a Planet. [TAS]). Spock estimated the probability of finding Harry Mudd on Motherlode was 81% + or - .53. He exposed Lora as a Rigelian hypnoid with a burst of phaser fire. When the miners got angry with Harry Mudd he used a burst of phaser fire to create a trench so that Kirk, Mudd and himself could escape back to the Enterprise. He exhibited a delayed reaction to the love crystals when Nurse Chapel touched him. When the drug took effect he insisted on pursuing her and Mudd to the nearby planet declaring he was in love with her. (Mudd's Passion. [TAS]). He made a miniature communicator for Kirk to beam down to Cepheus to see if the transporter restored his height. (The Terratin Incident. [TAS]). By touching Kor and Kaz at the conference aboard the Klothos and the Klingons apprehended at the Enterprise's dilithium vault Spock was able to sense they were planning to sabotage the ship. (The Time Trap. [TAS]). He mutated into a water breather with webbed hands in the ocean on Argo. (The Ambergris Element. [TAS]). He used his telepathic senses to judge the Lactrans feelings.

(The Slaver Weapon. [TAS]). Selected for the mission to retrieve the Soul of the Skorr because of his analytical mind and scientific expertise. He provided the schematics for Em/3/Green to rewire the Vedala land vehicle to boost its speed. (The Jihad. [TAS]). Spock contracted choriocytosis along with the rest of the crew but in his case it was still a fatal disease. The strobolin cure that was required was eventually obtained. (The Pirates of Orion. [TAS]). With Kirk had his communicator and phaser switched for fakes by Commander Bem. He strapped two working communicators returned by Bem together to contact the Delta Theta III entity. (Bem. [TAS]). The energy field effected computer played a joke on Spock by extending his viewer with two eye pieces that gave him 'black eyes'. Being a Vulcan he was not affected by the nitrous oxide laughing gas that the energy field controlled computer released into the ship's atmosphere. (The Practical Joker. [TAS]). He was immune to the Dramian auroral plague that the rest of the crew contracted and was put in command. He broke McCoy out of jail so that he could work on a cure. (Albatross. [TAS]). When the Enterprise was trapped in Kulkukan's force globe, Spock devised a scheme to break it free by applying impulse power and the tractor beam in one direction and full warp power in the other. (How Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth. [TAS]). He found that the ship's chronometers going backwards. (The Counter-Clock Incident. [TAS]).
