The Enemy Within

 

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.

The Naked Time

 

A strange alien substance causes the crew to act out their deepest inhibitions, while the ship plummets out of orbit.

Four episodes in and is this the one that drives a wedge between Heath and Lee?!?!?  Someone loves it and someone is not so keen, you’ll have to listen to the podcast to find out who!

They also discuss Star Trek porn.

Lee says “boob”.

Heath also shares his childhood moment of fame as a child of Romper Room.

Where No Man Has Gone Before

 

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.

Let us know what you think!

Next: The Naked Time

Charlie X

 

A powerful teenage boy wreaks havoc aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise.

In this week’s edition of Star Trek First Watch Lee and Heath discuss just how unlikeable one teenage boy with godlike powers adopted by a giant floating green head can really be.

Heath brings his photographic expertise in to discuss lighting and Lee wants all his photos to now be in shadow except for the eyes…

Oh yeah this kid seems normal...
Oh yeah this kid seems normal…

Heath and Lee also discuss dating tips from Captain Kirk and declare that card tricks no matter how bloody magical should never be used to try and impress the ladies.

Let us know what you think!

The Man Trap


Welcome to the very first episode of the Star Trek First Watch podcast, the podcast where Heath Carney watches Star Trek for the very first time and I Lee Sargent watch it for the thousandth time.

The Man Trap is the very first episode of Star Trek that aired back on the 8th of September 1966.

Please forgive us as this is Heath’s first podcast and it’s been a while since I launched and produced a podcast.

Love to hear your thoughts on the episode and do us a favour by spreading the word!

Next week: Charlie X

Hand plant forever!!!!
