Our quest to watch every single episode of Star Trek ever continues as we shamble toward the close of the first season of the original series. This week, we watched “This Side of Paradise.” This is the one where Spock no longer has tfw no gf!
This time, we learn all about Bertold Rays, Spock catches feelings, Spore is a bad video game, and an important fanfiction trope is born. The week’s soft focus blonde joneses for Spock for once, McCoy’s southern drawl turns it to 11, and Kirk gets into a fist-fight with Spock to save the Enterprise. It’s very good.
