Andy’s Suggestions

Recommended for Time Travel Aficionados!
Cause and Effect: A temporal causality loop and half a dozen exploding Enterprises are fun enough, but a Cameo by Kelsey Grammar tops off a fun and exciting episode.
Tapestry: Q Provides Picard with a chance to go back and re-live a pivotal moment in his life, but he may not like the man he becomes.
And Time’s Arrow 1&2: Data’s head is found in a cave under San Fransisco, hidden for centuries and the crew travels back to try to avert his death. Plus, Guinean meets Picard for the first time.

Next Up: Sins of the Father

Jessica’s Prediction

Much like meeting Spock’s father, we’re going to see Worf confront his father in a traditional conflict and prove his loyalty to Starfleet.

City on the Edge of Forever

Episode 12 – City on the Edge of Forever

City on the Edge of Forever

Andy and Jessica talk:
  • McCoy’s gross “sick” makeup - Over the top OR way over the top?
  • Starting out with a full cast in the landing party and ending up with a Kirk/Spock episode.
  • George Takei’s documentary, To Be Takei, chronicling World War II Internment Camps.
  • Andy’s belief that an optimistic, Star Trek future is possible.
  • Kirk is a Man of Action, forced to take no action
  • The Guardian of Forever must have been the inspiration for Stargate.
  • Author and Science Fiction award-winning writer, Harlan Ellison.
  • Who wouldn’t fall in love with Edith Keeler?
  • The incomparable Joan Collins.
  • The World War II generation actually watched this episode live.
  • Jessica shares her observations about the history of WWII.
  • Edith kisses Kirk, not the other way around.
  • Couldn’t they just bring Edith back with them?  Nope.
  • Andy reveals his ACTUAL FAVORITE EPISODE!
  • It’s all about one moment, “Jim, Edith Keeler must die.”

Andy’s Suggestions

Star Trek's got a lot of time travel, so if you enjoy looking at our history back in time, the suggestions are Tomorrow is Yesterday and Assignment Earth.

Space Seed Preview

Next Up: Space Seed

Jessica's Prediction

Since eugenics was mentioned, I think the Enterprise will have to deal with an alien device or virus that creates a super powerful or super fast human.
