  • Kirk is a Man of Action, forced to take no action

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.

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.

Episode 09 – The Enterprise Incident

The Enterprise Incident

Andy and Jessica talk Enterprise Incident, which includes:
    • Was the romance between Lady Romulan Commander and Mr. Spock real?
    • Lady Romulan Commander's agenda (part 1)
    • This episodes special effects
    • Captain Kirk was the bad guy! Did you know?
    • Captain Kirk's glammin' it up as a Romulan
    • How naive was the Romulan Commander? 10.
    • The Federation are bad guys.
    • Costuming. Lots of it.
    • Lady Romulan Commander's agenda (part 2)
    • Captain Kirk and the dumbest Romulan guard ever.
    • Are Vulcans incapable of lying? Hells. No.
    • Kirk dead? Nope.

The Youtube CG effects showing side-by-side that Andy mentions are here for Corbomite Maneuver, here for Tomorrow if Yesterday, and here for Amok Time.

And if you're needing it, Achmed the Dead Terrorist doing Kirk threatening Spock.

Andy’s Suggestions

Things they took apart and made into a cloaking device are the inspiration for this week's suggestions: Nomad was in the Changeling and the ball is from Return to Tomorrow.

Jessica's Prediction

It's going to be about the Enterprise getting in over their heads in a war, where they lose a battle or fight and regret it.
