We watched TOS season 3 episode "The Cloud Minders" and started a communist revolution inside our podcast!!!! there's oppressed workers and thinly veiled metaphors that we discover used to be even less thinly veiled and the whole thing rules, it turns out. watch the episode, listen to the podcast, and read the bread book, in that order. that's my advice. thank you.
we watched star trek TOS season 3 episode "the way to eden" and boy are our arms tired!
ok, look, there's space hippies, chelsea talks about getting kettled, and everyone enjoys some gentle space tunes. spock's harp is discussed. did we mention the space hippies? they fuckin.
put an egg on your shirt and don your headphones, it's time for the long trek home!
everyone's dying of ADHD and the fate of the enterprise rests with an old man and his robot daughter/wife who has seventeen degrees and is interested in literally everything. the ritalin monopoly must be toppled ... in space.
we watched the star trek original series season 3 episode "Requiem for Methuselah" and had ourselves a time!
This week, SEM brings us intrepid reporting live from Memory Alpha as we watch the Star Trek TOS season 3 episode "The Lights of Zetar" ...!
Scotty falls in love with some lettuce, shields are a war crime, and another cloud menaces the Enterprise. For season 3, this was startlingly watchable!
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.
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
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.
some people go very very fast. i don't even know how to describe this episode.
this episode was recorded in october 2017, oops!
please protect alexander, he's very good and we like him
star trek happens so much y'all
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.
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.
