This time your hosts talk about the first broadcast episode of Star Trek: The Original Series, THE MAN TRAP. A death count is kept, shirt colors are noted, and Uhura is fondly regarded. Other topics include: space prefixes, Hannibal, NCIS, and the Cold War. Chelsea and SEM also delve briefly into the true goals of their five year voyage.

Special guest: GAIL ANDERSON, better known as Chelsea’s mom, who watched the first episode the day it first aired and provides some much-needed historical perspective.

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!
