  3. I'm game. Number twelve is the Dal'Rok, a mythical energy creature from the first season Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "The Storyteller" (1993). (Star Trek does love its clouds, doesn't it?) I've always loved that visual effect, and I've always wondered just how they did it!

    1. Hi Brian!

      Outstanding job, my friend. I always thought that "The Storyteller" was such a weird episode, but it certainly sticks out in the memory. And I agree with you: Star Trek loves those space clouds!

    1. You got it, my friend! That's the planet-consuming cloud from Marc Daniels' episode "One of Our Planets is Missing." Star Trek has a LOT of space clouds...and I love that!
