Spock explores his identity while Captain Pike cozies up to his captors. Join your plank-walking hosts as they discuss radical intra-episode tonal shifts, a delightful – if at times jarring – return to classic Star Trek campiness, and the potential peculiarities of Vulcan sexuality.
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!
Next week: We continue our weekly coverage of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds with “The Elysian Kingdom”
Note that this and all episodes of the It’s Got Star Trek podcast contain explicit language and, frankly, an unnecessary amount of offensive content, so the show is intended only for adults and really really cool kids.
