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.
