Episode 57: The Naked Star Trek

This week, we slingshot around the sun and back in time to discuss the classic TOS Trek episode "The Naked Time"! We’ve got to risk a full-power start!

“The Naked Time” is an oldie but a goodie -- only the fourth episode of Star Trek ever aired back in 1966. The Psi 2000 virus has hit, and the only way to get out of this one is for Spock to cry, Sulu to run around with his sword half-naked, and Kirk to tell us how much he’s in love with the woman of his dreams… his ship.

Plus, we also entertain some of your TNG "Parallels" theories from our last episode. Did Worf really wind up in an alternate reality at the end of that episode, consigning all Trek that followed to parallel dimension purgatory? We discuss.

And last but not least, we're giving away autographed William Shatner DVDs! Listen to find out how you can nab one!

Episode 56: Is Star Trek: TNG’s "Parallels" the Most Underrated Episode Ever?

This week, we attempt to answer the question our headline asks -- using some pretay convincing arguments. Plus, Scott has a TNG theory that will blow your mind.

Season 7 of Next Gen was full of hit-and-mostly-miss episodes, with "Parallels" falling under the former. Worf is Quantum Leap-ing across multiple realities, struggling to put right what once went wrong (his ninth place finish at the bat'leth tournament!), hoping that his next leap will be the leap home... or to a surprise party-free birthday. Either or is good.

Why is this episode worthy of all the love? And how is it that “Parallels” just might’ve changed all of Trek that followed, without anyone really noticing?! Listen to find out!

We also have one of the highest-ranking Red Shirt's on hand, along with a quick dissection of Star Trek Into Darkness deleted scenes and... *clutch the pearls* Miley Cyrus?

So stop twerking and listen to Transporter Room 3!
