#87 – ‘The Magicks of Megas-tu’ & ‘Once Upon a Planet’ TAS S1E08 & 09

Captain Kirk defends Lucifer while Lieutenant Commander Uhura chats up a justifiably frustrated computer. Join your increasingly perplexed hosts as they discuss the insanity of Spock using logic to justify magic, the expanded opportunities for Uhura to play an integral role during the run of Star Trek: The Animated Series, and the discomfort at seeing McCoy pine for a Southern plantation.

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!

#67 – ‘More Tribbles, More Troubles’ TAS S1E05 & ‘The Trouble with Edward’ ST S2E02

A very animated Captain Kirk fends off fat tribbles and agitated Klingons; meanwhile Lieutenant Edward Larkin’s humanitarian science project goes off the rails. Join your starving hosts as they discuss the difficulty squeezing multiple plots into 22 minutes of screen time, highlight the creative advantages afforded by the Short Trek format, and debate the flavor and quality of freshly-shorn tribble meat.

#35 – ‘One of Our Planets Is Missing’ & ‘The Lorelei Signal’ TAS S1E03 & 04

Spock chats with a cloud and Uhura saves the day. Join your cartoonish hosts as they revel in the camp and creativity of the first animated Trek series, discuss the pluses and minuses of the animated format, and analyze the struggle between feminist and patriarchal messaging in old school Trek.

Next week: In preparation for our coverage of Lower Decks, we will be discussing the use of humor (successful and otherwise) in the Star Trek franchise. Contribute to our discussion by sending in your favorite and least favorite moments where Trek tried to be funny!

#8 – ‘Beyond the Farthest Star’ & ‘Yesteryear’ TAS S1E01 & 02

While the fandom collectively waits to see the first episode of Star Trek: Picard, your jive-talking hosts take a look back at the first two episodes of Star Trek: The Animated series, ‘Beyond the Farthest Star’ and ‘Yesteryear.’ We discuss the broadened visual scope the animated format affords the production team (made up of many of the key players from The Original Series), the peculiar (and often profound) performance choices made by the actors, and Spock’s racist friends.

Next week we finally get to review fresh and delicious new Trek, as we begin covering each and every episode of Star Trek: Picard. Let’s hope it is as glorious and brilliant as the shine on Patrick Stewart’s sexy head!
