Okay everyone before you answer let me make the case for and against (you’ll hear some of this in The Corbomite Maneuver episode but bear with me).
So right now Heath has seen none of the episodes except for The Trouble With Tribbles and the episodes we’ve already seen. It’s an interesting social experiment that had the ultimate pay off in The Corbomite Maneuver where he didn’t see the twist coming.
My concerns are that I don’t want anything spoilt for him, and to be honest I don’t really think any of the new films do this except for the character Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness. But of course as everyone would argue this is not the same Khan.
I don’t like the idea of Heath not seeing Star Trek Beyond in cinemas and waiting three or four years to see it (or for that matter the upcoming Star Trek series) so my vote is going to be personally he should be able to enjoy Star Trek Beyond and the two films before it and still enjoy seeing original trek for the first time.
The Enterprise picks up a intergalactic conman, Harry Mudd, and three incredibly beautiful women who harbor a dark secret.
I’m not going to lie to you, this episode goes well off the rails. We discuss Mudd’s Women for approximately 15% of the podcast and the rest of it is spent wandering around what ridiculous trains of thought that we can come up with.
I would argue that this isn’t the best episode to begin with (of Star Trek or this podcast).
We discuss many adult concepts and giggle like 12 year olds.
A transporter malfunction causes Captain Kirk to split into his “good” and “evil” selves, and a landing party will freeze to death if the crew is unable to find a way to merge the two Kirks back together.
It’s hard to not like an episode that features an alien unicorn dog but Heath and Lee give it a red hot go!
It’s an interesting episode for discussion and maybe not so much for watching. Along with Unicorn Dog we discover “Useless Sulu” and also we wonder what Uhura does on her days off.
Hit us up on Facebook (yay!!!!! Lee finally set it up!!) and let us know what you think of the podcast.
Kirk’s friend, Gary Mitchell, is transformed into a God-like entity.
Wow! The third episode already and we’re talking about Where No Man Has Gone Before, the second pilot episode for Star Trek!
We learn that Heath does not have a huge lens for his camera, if you know what I mean. Lee is excited to be pirating toys via 3D printing technology and they also discuss the challenges of being endowed with god like abilities.
Where No Man Has Gone Before is a surprisingly strong episode and it very much speaks to why Star Trek endures 50 years later.
