#141 – ‘Balance of Terror’ TOS S1E14

Captain Kirk navigates a tricky situation. Join your outpost-hopping hosts as they discuss the terrors of institutional inertia, well-intentioned but ultimately naïve attempts at social justice, and the curious ease with which one character reacts to the death of their partner.

Spoiler warning! We dive right into a detail-rich discussion of this episode, so if you haven’t had a chance to see it yet – beware!
