We managed to survive watching Star Trek TOS season 3's "That Which Survives" and I think you should be proud of us for that feat.

In this episode, we learn some geography and geology, discuss podcast listening habits, and Spock is a total asshole for no good reason. Also, Kirk makes some strange assumptions about ghosts.

The intrepid crew of Long Trek Home watched TOS Season 3 episode "The Mark of Gideon" and had a bad time. Chelsea veers wildly off-topic at every opportunity while SEM valiantly tries to keep things on track.

 

A woman wears a bizarre and terrible outfit. Overcrowding is woefully misunderstood, people walk in circles, and in space no one can hear you scream unless you're not actually in space and then they can.

 

Recorded July 9, 2018

this time, SEM's friend Arras (@Animus_Panthera) joined us to discuss Star Trek TOS episode "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield" ...!

Everyone ignores each other a lot as the same questions are asked time and time again. 50,000 years seems like a reasonable amount of time to have grown tired of promises of incremental change. Lokai was right. Oh, yeah, and this is the episode with the dudes with half black/half white faces.

Recorded in April 2018.

Note: Arras' audio came through extremely quiet on the audio despite seeming fine while we were recording. I've done my best with it, but if audio levels are weird on this one, I apologize.

episode 69 .... nice

in the star trek future, the only mental illness left is Doing War Crimes! oh, serial killing, also, that's another mental illness. everything else is fine, and those are fine now too because of magic space drugs. things get goofy this episode.

recorded february 2018. spoilers for black panther.

Jul 4, 2018

we watched the TOS episode "Elaan of Troyius" with our friend Jeff @heyboots! this bizarre take on taming of the shrew is not very good, probably, but at least kirk/enterprise is confirmed once again. good job, TOS!

here's jeff's utena let's play: link

May 22, 2018

this episode has an empath who gets experimented on a lot, which is rough. just say no to human experimentation! sem's mom guest stars as we try and figure out what the fuck scotty is talking about. 

Apr 16, 2018

some people go very very fast. i don't even know how to describe this episode.

 

this episode was recorded in october 2017, oops!

Feb 7, 2018

please protect alexander, he's very good and we like him

 

star trek happens so much y'all

Jan 23, 2018

Sometime in September, we talked about Star Trek: TOS season three episode "The Tholian Web."

 

Kirk goes missing, the Tholians are famed for their punctuality, everyone gets holes in their brains because of dimensions, and Chelsea wants pictures of Spider-Man. 

Jan 18, 2018

bones is a married man now

 

this episode was recorded in september, but it's out in january! that's the magic of time travel.

Nov 29, 2017

hey, we're back! we watched "day of the dove" back in like august and then chelsea got caught up in moving stuff and forgot what the word editing meant. this episode has klingons, so there's plenty of cold war metaphors and blackface.

 

note: updated 11/29 to fix an audio issue

Sep 1, 2017

A spectre is haunting Star Trek: The Original Series season 3 - the Spectre of the Gun. All the powers of the Federation have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this spectre: Kirk and Spock, human and Vulcan, Klingon and Romulan. 

Where is the federation starship on patrol that has not been waylaid by weird space beings and forced to do gunfights? Where is the federation starship that has not pissed off an alien race so bad those aliens made them hang out on a cobbled-together western set all day, and then had to act like Billy the Kid and other Wild West historical figures? 

The history of all hitherto existing space society is asshole space aliens making shit like this happen. 

Or: Chelsea and SEM discuss "Spectre of the Gun." It's not bad.

Sorry the podcast is super late! Chelsea fell behind in editing.

Aug 17, 2017

chelsea and SEM watch TOS season 3 episode "Is There No Truth In Beauty?"

 

the crew is super horny, an alien lives in a box, and spock wears special glasses. it's OK!

Aug 9, 2017

UPDATE: libsyn did something wrong and originally cut off the ending of this episode. you may need to refresh your feed to get the full version??

--

these are some bad kids, folks! chelsea and SEM talk season 3 TOS episode "And The Children Shall Lead," where kids are evil and you can't trust angels. oh, there's also a mass suicide in this one. in space!

Jul 26, 2017

The crew lands on a planet and Kirk promptly falls in a hole and gets amnesia. Chelsea and SEM try to deal with the episode's events as best they can. This time, Long Trek Home discusses the Star Trek TOS season 3 episode "The Paradise Syndrome" ...!

 

It's a weird, weird episode. 

Jul 19, 2017

NOTE: An updated version of this episode was uploaded on 7/19/2017. If you notice voices playing on only one stereo channel, you may need to redownload the episode or refresh your podcast feed to get the corrected version.

--

Hey, this episode's pretty good! Chelsea and SEM watch "The Enterprise Incident," the second episode of Star Trek: TOS season three. That's half of season three that's tolerable already!

Anyway, Spock gets a rare love interest, Kirk needs a nap, and the Commander is your hosts' new collective fav. The Romulans have a point, Scotty's amazing except for his hair, and - did we mention the Commander? 

Jul 12, 2017

jeff comes back to help chelsea and SEM deal with the first episode of star trek: the original series season three, "spock's brain."

 

oh jeez. just ... oh, jeez. oh no. oh boy.

 

note: this episode is out a week late because SGDQ happened. oops? oops.

Jun 28, 2017

At the end of season two, we got an e-mail! We also talked about season 2 and listed our favorite episodes. C'mon down and check it out.

Jun 21, 2017

we watched the final episode of star trek TOS season 2 - "assignment: earth"

it's a failed pilot for a show that never happened, and your intrepid hosts don't need long to figure out why.

chelsea and sem get on a conference call with guest host jeff to talk about conference calls, failed pilots, and stock footage. google teaches us all about half-remembered history. also, there's a cat.

 

bonus: listen to this dope mashup of 99 red balloons x 99 problems

Jun 14, 2017

this episode forces us to dig into the nitty gritty of slavery and also jesus. chelsea doesn't go in depth with marxist theory. modern day rome has a tv station that is a point of contention between the hosts. spock and bones do a lot of fighting for plot purposes. kirk has a dubious interaction with a woman. merikus is a tragic figure, but like, in the classical sense probably?

 

just read the water margin instead of watching this episode of star trek. but definitely listen to this podcast first.

 

CORRECTION: toward the end of the episode - it was emperor constantine, not emperor augustus. 

Jun 6, 2017

 

We watched "The Ultimate Computer" from Star Trek TOS season 2! It was really good!

unionize now and then you can rise from the dead

update: now the file is louder 

May 31, 2017

In this very special Memorial Day episode, which was absolutely recorded that way on purpose, we swear, we watched Star Trek: TOS episode "The Omega Glory." You should absolutely watch "The Omega Glory" ASAP. Please, it is incredible and neither of us can figure out how or why it got made.

 

Things get patriotic, we solve an anatomical riddle of the future, talk about mummies, and recite the pledge of allegiance as badly as possible. There's a bullshit space disease and a mad captain, which would be a fine episode if left on their own, but then ... well ... uh ...  Something something red scare, I don't know.

May 23, 2017

We're still watching season 2 of Star Trek: The Original Series! This time, we watched "By Any Other Name," an episode about horrifying tentacle monsters who basically just look like human beings who make slightly off fashion choices.

This episode is extremely topical because we make references to orbs again, the hot new craze everyone loves and worships. Oh, and the Enterprise gets taken over by secret tentacle monsters or whatever. Seriously, we never see their true forms. Scotty makes a beautiful sacrifice, Kirk is a femme fatale, and Spock is secretly pretty conniving.

Also: the secret origins of our Soundcloud beef REVEALED!

May 18, 2017

it's the nazi episode. there's nazis, but in space! 

this is a weird, weird episode. but it's not bad? there's unsubtle metaphor, non-metaphor, and just so much heil-ing. so much. we barely mention it in the episode, but trust me, it's ever-present in this episode. this is why you don't break the prime directive, kids.

anyway, nazis bad, enterprise good, spock wears a bunch of hats. listen to the episode to hear us puzzle over many things!

May 9, 2017

We're still on season 2 of TOS, folks, the Star Trek season that never ends. This time we watched "Return to Tomorrow."

A terrible man of online haunts this episode like a grim spectre. Bodies are stolen, women are real, and we love orb. Chelsea gets mad at a lot of things this time. SEM knows what's going on, and appreciates the details of science. Neither knows what warp speed actually is.
