Star Trek III The Search For Spock

 

Admiral Kirk and his bridge crew risk their careers stealing the decommissioned Enterprise to return to the restricted Genesis planet to recover Spock’s body.

Last week we attempted to record but were thwarted by technology now this week Heath and Lee take a fresh look at the third instalment of the original films.

Does Star Trek III live up to the theory that all odd numbered Trek films are bad or is that just stupid?

Let us know what you think either here or over on Facebook.

Star Trek II The Wrath of Khan

 

With the assistance of the Enterprise crew, Admiral Kirk must stop an old nemesis, Khan Noonien Singh, from using the life-generating Genesis Device as the ultimate weapon.

We return to Ceti Alpha V to see what the Space Seed has grown and Heath get’s to see what all the fuss about Wrath of Khan is!

Remember Heath wasn’t a massive fan of Khan’s first appearance so what does he think of the arguably most loved of the Star Trek films?

As always let us know what you think!!

Thanks for taking the time!

Operation – Annihilate!

 

The Enterprise crew attempts to stop a plague of amoeba-like creatures from possessing human hosts and spreading throughout the galaxy.

Here we are at the end of the first season of Star Trek, does the season finish with a bang or a whimper?  Lee and Heath also discuss the first season as a whole.  Did it impress Heath?  How did Lee find revisiting it?

Let us know what you thought!!!

The City on the Edge of Forever

 

When a temporarily insane Dr. McCoy accidentally changes history and destroys his time, Kirk and Spock follow him to prevent the disaster, but the price to do so is high.

This is the episode considered by many fans to be the best episode of all of Star Trek.  What will Heath make of it and is it as good as Lee remembers?

The Alternative Factor

 

Kirk and Spock encounter a mysterious alien named Lazarus who claims to be hunting a ruthless maniacal creature.

That sounds like a great episode right?

Well it’s not.

It’s a horrible episode, it makes no sense and no one appears to want to be there.  Spock may have a cold.

If this is your first episode of Star Trek ever please don’t watch this episode!

Errand of Mercy

 

Kirk and Spock battle Klingons to free Organia.

Klingons!!!  This is Heath’s first encounter with the Klingons and what will he think of Star Trek’s number one enemy alien race???

The Devil in the Dark

 

An unknown monster threatens a mining operation.

Fortunately, Heath and Lee find more to say about The Devil in the Dark than that streaming description!

There’s a lot of love in here for the Horta and her babies as this episode gets a lot of praise heaped onto it!

This Side of Paradise

 

The Enterprise visits a colony where indigenous flower spores provide the settlers with peaceful contentment.

What started off as a regular review of a classic Star Trek episode turns into quite the revelation regarding the nature of Spock, what it’s like to be an outsider and how people live their own self-made purgatories.

Plus we manage not to make too much fun of the plant spores…

A Taste of Armageddon

 

The Enterprise arrives at a planet to establish diplomatic relations and finds itself in the middle of a “peaceful” war that threatens to destroy the ship.

So what’s a brand new Star Trek episode like with a couple of glasses of wine under your belt?  Heath commits himself to discovering all in the name of science!

Admittedly it gets a little thinky in this podcast but we promise there’s enough silliness in here to keep most of you happy!
