Corbomite Maneuver

Episode 02 – The Corbomite Maneuver


The First Time

Jessica and Andy dive into an actual episode. It's about time! I'm only, what, 50 years late to the party?

On this podcast we talk:

  • the complete surprise that is Balok
  • how tv has changed the perception of Star Trek, especially in regards to airing on tv vs streaming
  • body types from 60s to today and Kirk with shirt off (meow?)
  • lack of female representation in this episode and how far we’ve come in that area AND in production
  • Kirk's decision to render aid at the end
  • how the enterprise is like a submarine
  • problems with creating technology when our current tech goes beyond those ideas

Next Up

The next episode I'll be watching is A Taste of Armageddon. Stream it on your fave device by searching The Original Series, Season 1, Episode 24. Watch with me!

I have never seen Star Trek. This is my journey to discovering it, led by my great friend and super nerd trekkie fan, Andy Goldberg.
