Our eleventh episode is Star Trek: The Original Series' tenth, The Corbomite Maneuver! This is the one with the spinning cube!

 

This time, we come up with a Hugo-award winning story idea, run the space race, talk about time cube, and find something alarming about space physicals. The Enterprise fires her phasers at an enemy vessel for the first time, Spock tells a joke, and Bailey's secret connection to the Dragon Age franchise is revealed. No wonder they can't wait to get rid of him.

Join us as we walk about Star Trek: The Original Series episode 9 - The Dagger of the Mind! This is the one with the memory-erasing beam!

 

This time, we talk about ethics in mind alteration, infra-sensory drugs, mental health and prisons, and ridiculous Greek names. Kirk's nerd cred continues to amass itself, Dr. Noel saves Christmas, and space fashion involves psychedelic drapes and cult emblems. Also, panty shots! This one gets relatively heavy because of the subject of the episode, but we still have a great time.
