Episode 5: The Naked Time

The five year voyage to watch every episode of Star Trek continues with TOS episode 4, “The Naked Time.” This is the one where Sulu takes his shirt off!

Sorry for the late episode – Chelsea is sick as a hundred dogs. Enjoy the dulcet tones of a sore throat in this exciting podcast!

In another non-pilot episode, we finally meet Nurse Chapel, Uhura is our MVP, and Sulu chases people down hallways with his fencing foil. Poor use of personal protective equipment, space madness, and complex molecules all teach us important lessons in life and science.

Episode 4: Where No Man Has Gone Before

The five year voyage to watch every episode of Star Trek continues with episode 3, “Where No Man Has Gone Before.” This is the one with Gary Mitchell!


This podcast, we encounter yet another pilot episode, meet Scotty for the first time, sing about some Gary that we used to know, and look forward to the space Tarantino flick Kill Mitchell. We also debate how many omnipotent beings we’ve encountered thus far, enjoy the tapes of future past, and get a little Shakespearean.

Episode 3: Charlie X

Stardate 69708.8

Our five year voyage to watch all of Star Trek continues with the second episode of the original series, CHARLIE X. In which our omnipotent being count begins, the death count is updated, and we can’t figure out if being turned into an iguana should count. Also: life lessons with Captain Kirk, fanfiction concepts, space boardgames, and the danger of teens.

Episode 1: The Cage

Stardate 11603.15

Welcome to the inaugural episode, recorded before we were even sure of our own name! Each week, we’ll discuss an episode of Star Trek, going from the original series and Next Generation, all the way through to whatever Bryan Fuller reboot madness eventually happens.

This time we talk about the very first episode of Star Trek ever, THE CAGE. Topics include: just how done Captain Pike is with everything, Fallout New Talos, unnamed female characters, and matte paintings. And more!
