62: Day of the Dove: Stop Having Racism

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.


61: Spectre of the Gun: Wild Wild West

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...


60: Is There No Truth In Beauty?: Hexagonal Prisms

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!


59: And The Children Shall Lead: Ring Around The Rosie [REMIX]

Episode 58: The Paradise Syndrome: Nice Scenery

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.


Episode 57: The Enterprise Incident: [borat voice] my wife

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?


Episode 56: Spock's Brain: Oh No

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.


EPISODE X: Season 2 Wrap-Up: we got an email

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.


Episode 55: Assignment: Earth: Your New Favorite Millennial History Podcast

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


Episode 54: Bread and Circuses: Slaves to the NHS

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...


Episode 53: The Ultimate Computer: The Only Winning Move

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


Episode 52: The Omega Glory: A Star Captain's Most Solemn Oath

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,...


Episode 51: By Any Other Name: Space Invaders

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...


Episode 50: Patterns of Force: Uniform Thieves Anonymous

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!


Episode 49: Return to Tomorrow: Podcaster's Fiat

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.


Episode 48: A Private Little War: Full Metal Vest

Warning - This episode has some pretty heavy themes, including some very rape-y bits. Our mission to watch all of Star Trek continues. We're in the middle of season 2, and watched "A Private Little War." Anyway, hey, this episode sure is a Vietnam War metaphor, huh?????? Boy howdy. Nona has an amazing vest. You may notice an episode missing in the feed! Various disasters transpired and that episode is temporarily lost - having the program crash and the file get corrupted TWICE while...
