The very last Star Trek N00b recap!
A Red Shirt dies, but really, that’s no surprise.
“Oh, how fallible of me!”
“I can neither enjoy the idea of command, nor am I frightened of it. It simply exists.”
“For some reason, I keep picturing Kirk as a frat bro, but maybe that’s unfair.”
“Leave any bigotry in your quarters. There’s no room for it on the Bridge. Do I make myself clear?”
“And this ship. All this power surging and throbbing, yet under control. Are you like that, Captain?” Hurk.
And now we figure out the cliffhanger Star Trek left me/us all with last week.
AHHHH THERE IS SO MUCH SUSPENSE HERE AHHHHH.
Didn’t you get the memo about threatening shapes?
Whooo, welcome to the tenth recap of Star Trek: The Original Series! This one includes lots of hetero kissing, but also lots of a lady kicking ass.
Spock and Bones use their fancy future tech and floppy disks to answer a pressing questions: How does the human race continue for 300 years on a planet without adults?
“Kirk uses android therapy session. It is super effective.”
Wow, Star Trek, you really know how to tackle those hard issues. Unfortunately, I think the show creators handled the issue of mail-order brides and human trafficking with ZERO TACT.
In this episode Sulu freezes his ass off while Kirk gets emotional, drinks, and performs experiments on Unicorn Puppies.
THE NAKED TIME when Sulu chases men with his sword. And Kirk and Spock slap each other over love. It’s ALL canon, people.
You know, if I’m ever trapped on a far-off planet with a crazed, god-like megalomaniac, I want Spock on my team!
“It seems that Charlie can control other people’s behavior to an extent. I am sure this ability will make him an irritating prat throughout the episode.”
“Okay, I had a fangirl moment once George Takei appeared on screen.”
“The Talosians realize that Pike isn’t sold, and try to seduce him with a bizarre harem illusion with Vina as a green exotic dancer. Dayum, Pike. You’ve got some weird fantasies.”
