Following the cancellation of Star Trek: The Original Series, fans of the franchise were given the chance to follow the further adventures of Captain Kirk and company in the aptly named Star Trek: The Animated Series. It is the general consensus that animation in the 1970's was downright awful. This "problem" has proven a hinderance for us at Random Trek, but we are very glad that the animation of the modern Trek shows is head and shoulders above what it was 50 years ago.

While wrapping up a routine mission around an unexplored planet, Captain Kirk encounters one of his greatest heroes, President Abraham Lincoln, who asks to come aboard the Enterprise. Kirk realizes there's no way that this can be the real Lincoln, but he cautiously takes him up on his offer to beam down with him to the planet's surface, where Mr. Spock comes face-to-face with one of his own heroes, Surak of Vulcan. They soon find out that this is all part of a plan by the citizens of Excalbia to stage the ultimate battle between good and evil, and the fate of the Enterprise hangs in the balance. For a variety of reasons, "The Savage Curtain" shouldn't work. Not only is it a rehash of better episodes, like "Arena" and "Spectre of the Gun" (not to mention "The Gamesters of Triskelion" and "Return to Tomorrow"), but the image of Lincoln floating through space towards the Enterprise starts the episode on a downright silly note. The fact that "The Savage Curtain" overcomes these flaws to emerge as a strong and entertaining episode is a testament to its strengths, the biggest of which is guest star Lee Bergere, who really sells it with his committed performance as Lincoln.

Cross-examinations are a staple of teevee. On Law and Order, there is a plethora of great scenes where Jack McCoy presses the defendant until they break and inadvertently provide irrefutable evidence against themselves. Lije Baley wants us to believe there is no benefit to cross-examining a robot, but teevee and Captain James T. Kirk argue against this. Consider this scene from "The Ultimate Computer," restored to the intended version that was prevented by copyright issues. Ironic because Star Trek walks right up to the border of the ground Asimov covered in The Naked Sun in this one. M5: This unit is the ultimate achievement in computer evolution. It will replace man so that man may achieve. Man must not risk death in space or other dangerous occupations. This unit must survive so man may be protected. SPOCK: Captain, attack force almost within phaser range. KIRK: There were many men aboard those ships. They were murdered. Must you survive by murder? M5: This unit cannot murder. KIRK: Why? M5: Murder is contrary to the First Law of Robotics. KIRK: But you have murdered. Scan the starship Excalibur, which you destroyed. Is there life aboard? M5: No life. KIRK: Because you murdered it. What is the penalty for murder? M5: Death. KIRK: And how will you pay for your acts of murder? M5: This unit must die. (It disconnects itself from the power feed in Engineering and goes dark.) KIRK: M-5? CHEKOV: Sir, deflector shields have dropped. SULU: All phaser power is gone, sir. SPOCK: M-5 is leaving itself open to attack. The machine is ignoring the Third Law to atone for its violation of the First Law. So, despite Baley's repeated assertions to the contrary, Kirk shows us it can be productive to cross-examine a robot, perhaps even forcing a mental freeze-out. "Mental freeze-out!" you might exclaim! "Dr. Han Fastolfe says that's practically impossible!" I suggest we ask Captain Kirk about that too. But let's think about this together as we discuss chapters 7, 8, and 9 of The Robots of Dawn. It's a monument to cross-examination and interrogation. And not just of robots. We talk about it, you can join us! Let's go! The scene from "The Ultimate Computer" was taken from Chrissie's Transcripts Site. (and then shamelessly edited).

With a deadly plague raging aboard the Enterprise, Kirk, Spock and McCoy beam down to an unexplored planet to obtain a rare material called Ryetalyn, which is the only known substance that can cure everyone aboard the ship. That's where they meet a mysterious man named Flynt who lives in a massive castle with his beautiful companion Rayna, with whom Captain Kirk immediately falls for. With less than four hours to go until the effects of the plague become irreversible, Kirk becomes so consumed by his affection for Rayna that he completely loses sight of the urgent mission at hand. As with many late-third season entries, "Requiem for Methuselah" is plagued itself with having a number of really good ideas that are poorly executed -- the biggest of which is how totally out of character Kirk behaves while everyone aboard the Enterprise is just hours away from dying. Unlike with past romances, Kirk's love for Rayna doesn't ring true for a moment, and without that, the whole episode falls apart.

Dave Brisbin 11.6.22 William Shatner, Star Trek's original Captain Kirk, flew to space on a private suborbital flight a year ago, and like many astronauts, had a profound, worldview-shattering experience. Space was “unlike any blackness you can see or feel on Earth—deep, enveloping, all-encompassing. The contrast between the vicious coldness of space and the warm nurturing of Earth below filled me with overwhelming sadness. Everything I had thought was wrong, everything I had expected to see was wrong.” Leaving the spacecraft after landing, he wept, and it took him some time to realize that he “was in grief for the Earth.” He saw Earth as we can never see it from the surface: an isolated, fragile spot of warmth and life set against vast darkness. On the surface, if we don't like one spot, we can move to another, assume inexhaustible resources, distract ourselves, and take our home for granted. But from space, the realization that all we have and are, all human history and experience, love and life exists in just one spot, on one little ball hanging in a vacuum, reveals…there is no backup. Shatner received a gift, a view of home and life with an intensity few of us get this side of death. But even earthbound, peak events, great suffering, great love, imminent death can pull back the curtain. At the end of his life as king, the Teacher of Ecclesiastes, having looked for meaning in pleasure, wealth, accomplishment, wisdom, has the shattering insight that none of it mattered. That in the face of the death we all share, everything we have and are is contained in just one moment, one spot on a planet with no backup. If we can't find meaning herenow, it doesn't exist—because nothing does anywhere else. The Teacher, from his shattering realization, wrote that God has set eternity in our hearts. The unremembered awareness that all time, all at once everything and everywhen exist within us and are only ever accessible now and here. Searching anywhere else is striving after the wind. Shatner said, “I hope I never recover from this.” That will be his choice. It is always ours as well.

Enterprise Incidents with Scott & Steve

When the Enterprise intercepts a stolen space cruiser, it beams aboard a group of rebellious space hippies that are searching for the mythical planet of Eden. What starts off as merely an annoyance to Captain Kirk turns downright dangerous when the hippies – led by the insane Dr. Sevrin – attempt to take over the Enterprise at all costs in an effort to fulfill their journey. Over the decades, “The Way to Eden” has become something of a veritable punching bag for “Star Trek” fans. And for many reasons (especially Spock's jam session), it's an easy one to punch. But credit must be given to “The Way to Eden” for taking a big swing and committing to its intentions, and it's not nearly as bad as, say, “And the Children Shall Lead” or “The Alternative Factor.” Back in 1969, it was “real now,” and it still is – so don't be a Herbert, and take it for the silly fun that it is.

We're gonna set it straight, this neonate film series of all new Trek adventure with our ill communication about Star Trek 2009!New York Times bestselling author Alan Gratz returns to the show this week to talk about the film series that turned Trek into a blockbuster and introduced a whole new generation to the adventures of Kirk and crew. When Romulus is destroyed at the end of the 24th century, the vengeful Nero is thrown into an alternate 23rd century, where his rampage takes the life of George Kirk. Now, George's son Jim will have to overcome his personal flaws and realize his destiny to take command of the USS Enterprise to save Earth and the Federation!As the TNG series of films wound down at the box office, Paramount returned to a question that had plagued the studio for over 20 years: "How could you ever recast Captain Kirk?" To finally answer that question, they turned to genre tv and film wunderkind JJ Abrams to give the familiar characters and world of Star Trek a makeover for the new millennium. The result was a zippy and stylish film that eschewed almost 50 years of continuity to instead boil the characters of Kirk, Spock, et al. to their essential qualities. The result was a reinvigoration of the Trek film franchise and a welcoming of the often niche property into the fraternity of cinematic popcorn blockbusters. In the first half of our conversation about Star Trek 2009, we talk about the process behind reimagining the franchise for a new audience, interfacing with nostalgia, the "Wars-ening" of Star Trek, the previous attempts to reboot the franchise, Abrams as a director, the film's exemplary casting, and the importance of a memorable score.We also discuss built-in doomscrolling, Medea Goes to Qo'nos, spacing in comfort, avoiding "the chompers", rotoscoping Spock, wife vs. Spielberg, the Raimi Trek that never was, mining torpedoes, missing Remans, replicator questions, the lonely French horn in space, a different kind of cantina scene, the Shatnerverse, Kirk's "Maverick moment", and 721 lens flares!Reverse the curse!Follow Alan on Twitter and get his new book "Two Degrees"!http://www.twitter.com/alangratzhttps://www.alangratz.com/writing/two-degrees/Learn the story behind your favorite Trek episodes with BackTrekking!http://www.twitter.com/backtrekkingSay HELLO to us on Facebook and Twitter and the Just Enough Trope Discord!http://www.facebook.com/eistpodhttp://www.twitter.com/eistpodhttps://discord.gg/WVvCHVWqzfBuy us a Slusho on Patreon and Ko-Fi!http://www.patreon.com/eistpodhttps://ko-fi.com/E1E01M2UASubscribe to the show on iTunes!https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/enterprising-individuals/id1113165661?mt=2

The Enterprise is on a desperate mission to the planet Ardana to secure the consignment of a rare substance called Zenite, which is the only antidote to a botanical plaque that is threatening all life on the planet Merak II. But the promised delivery of the Zenite is delayed when Captain Kirk gets caught in the middle of a class struggle between the allegedly "inferior" cave-dwelling Troglyte miners and the so-called "superior" intellectual society that inhabits the cloud city of Stratos. With time running out, Captain Kirk takes matters into his own hands, which threatens to further the divide between the Troglytes and the Stratos city dwellers, which in effect will threaten to destroy all life on Merak II. "The Cloud Minders" may not represent "Star Trek" at its best, but at this point so late in the 3rd Season -- not to mention so close to the end of the series -- it comes close enough. It's an ambitious episode that features a strong message, notable production values and stellar performances, all of which make "The Cloud Minders" represent a return to form to the values and standards that made "Star Trek" so great in the first place. Following our deep dive of "The Cloud Minders," we're honored to once again be joined for very special interview by writer David Gerrold! In addition to writing the story for "The Cloud Minders," he is perhaps best known in "Star Trek" history for writing its most popular episode, "The Trouble with Tribbles." Gerrold is also the recipient of the 2022 Robert A. Heinlein Award, honoring a lifetime of outstanding achievements in science fiction writing.

In the wake of Star Trek Beyond's middle underwhelming box office, there were various plans to get another Star Trek movie underway. One would have involved bringing back Chris Hemsworth, who played Captain Kirk's doomed father before he was a star in 2009's Star Trek, but economically, that proved to be unfeasible. Another, perhaps more intriguing idea, was hatched by none other than Quentin Tarantino, who was to write a script with The Revenant's Mark L. Smith. While ultimately it didn't get made, Trekkies have long wondered what a QT-infused version of Star Trek would have been like, and in this episode of WTF Happened to this Unmade Movie, we reveal as much as we can about this abandoned project.

FOREGEN like Lebanon, choice as its cedars. Lebanon meaning place of whiteness, very white, white one or mountain of snow. The Kobayashi Maru is a training exercise in the Star Trek franchise designed to test the character of Starfleet Academy cadets in a no-win scenario. The Kobayashi Maru test was first depicted in the 1982 film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, and it has since been referred to and depicted in numerous other Star Trek media. The notional goal of the exercise is to rescue the civilian spaceship Kobayashi Maru, which is damaged and stranded in dangerous territory. The cadet being evaluated must decide whether to attempt to rescue the Kobayashi Maru—endangering their ship and crew—or leave the Kobayashi Maru to certain destruction. If the cadet chooses to attempt a rescue, an insurmountable enemy force attacks their vessel. By reprogramming the test itself, James T. Kirk became the only cadet to defeat the Kobayashi Maru. The phrase "Kobayashi Maru" has entered the popular lexicon as a reference to a no-win scenario. The term is also sometimes used to invoke Kirk's decision to "change the conditions of the test."

Captain Kirk beams down to Gideon while on a diplomatic mission to allow the planet entry into the Federation, only to find himself back aboard a completely deserted version of the Enterprise, save for one beautiful humanoid woman named Odona who is wandering around the corridors. Back on the actual Enterprise, Mr. Spock is locked in a battle of wits with the leader of the Gideon council, who refuses to offer any assistance in the search for Captain Kirk. Turns out this is all a ruse for the Gideon council, which intends to use Kirk's germs to infect the people of Gideon in an effort to reduce the planet's out of control population explosion. It was a bold and daring move for a TV series like "Star Trek" to take on the very real problem of overpopulation, but what's truly staggering is how completely dull the end result turns out to be, not to mention the totally preposterous notion that the Gideon people would be able to build an exact replica of the Enterprise that would fool Captain Kirk. "The Mark of Gideon" takes a big swing, but it totally misses the "mark," and in a number of ways.

It has been in recent months that William Shatner (Star Trek) visited space which is a big deal for someone who became famous for playing Captain Kirk in the original Star Trek series. However, his response once he got to space really stood out to me. Here is how he described it:"When I got to space, I was so excited to see what this next frontier was like. But there was no mystery. There was no majesty to behold, all I saw was death. I saw a cold, dark black emptiness. It was unlike any blackness you can see or feel on Earth. It was deep and enveloping and all encompassing."Of course, this was of deep shock to William Shatner but then he turned back towards the Earth where he saw the light of home and this is what he had to say: "Here I see the opposite. I can see the beige of the desert, the white of the clouds, and the blue of the sky. It's life."This experience really reminds me of what life is life without Jesus. John 8:12 says:"When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” - John 8:12Christ is the true Light of the World, but we who have received His new-life have been entrusted to carry the testimony of His light, His life and His love into a darkened world, and He has commanded us to live out our lives in a manner that is well-pleasing to Him. We are to walk in the light as He is in the light and we are to point lost souls to the One Who lightens our darkness and breathes life into the lifeless soul.

Enterprise Incidents with Scott & Steve

When Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock beam down to a heavily-guarded penal colony with an experimental new drug that may be able to cure the last remaining mental patients in the galaxy, they arrive to find that the lunatics have already taken over the asylum. Leading the charge is Garth of Izar, a former starship fleet captain who is totally off his rocker, but has developed the ability to change his physical appearance and plans to use that power to impersonate Captain Kirk, steal the Enterprise and hunt down his former crew who he feels betrayed him. Whether or not you love "Whom Gods Destroy" depends mostly on your appreciation of guest star Steve Ihnat's over-the-top performance as "Lord" Garth, not to mention Yvonne Craig's sultry turn as his green-skinned sidekick Marta . Otherwise, there's not much to recommend this weak late-3rd Season entry, which plays out more like a radio show and further demonstrates that "Star Trek" had run out of inspiration and was truly on its last legs.

Following our deep dive discussion of "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield," we're excited to be joined for a special interview by LOU ANTONIO ("Lokai"). A 50,000-year chase through the galaxy comes to a head on the Enterprise, when Commissioner Bele of the planet Cheron finally catches up with his rebellious opponent, Lokai. That puts Captain Kirk in the middle of a heated battle between two warring factions, the outcome of which could lead to the destruction of the Enterprise by Kirk's own hand. Whenever "Star Trek" has been praised for exploring social issues, "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield" is usually the first episode that's referred to. Whether or not that makes it a great episode has been open to debate for decades. On one hand, "Battlefield" has often been criticized for being too heavy-handed in its approach, but a closer look actually reveals a variety of subtleties and more layers than it is often given credit for. It also features a superb performance from guest star Frank Gorshin as Bele, not to mention the standout scene where Kirk threatens to destroy the Enterprise. But without question, the most important aspect of "Battlefield" is its message about the absurdity of racism, which is just as timely and relevant now as it was in the late-1960s. To that extent, "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield" actually does represent "Star Trek" at its very best.
