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 powerful entity known as Trelane torments the crew of the Enterprise.
Another day another god-like being threatens the Enterprise and her crew! Heath is introduced to the character that inspired Q (and he doesn’t even know what Q is!). We also talk about the importance of Star Trek and the early days of the internet when Heath and Lee were young!
Spock commands a stranded away team when their shuttlecraft is stranded on a planet with hostile natives.
In this week’s podcast, it’s Spock’s first crack at command and not everything is hunky dory on the Galileo. Giant apemen are throwing giant spears and rocks at the ship and Kirk is battling a “jobs worth” up on the Enterprise.
Heath also thinks he’s a better manager than Spock…

Let us know what you think!
Also just an FYI, I don’t write the synopsis, they come from Stan and some of them are amazingly underwhelming!
