The increasingly inaccurately named “Plucky Kid” month continues! At this point, we should probably just rename it “Childhood Trauma” month, as this episode features five recently-orphaned, super-powered children who take over the Enterprise. It’s kind of a rehash of Charlie X, but with five ill-adjusted children instead of one and 100% less Shatner dick. We may end up crossing a line this month, you’ll have to listen to find out!
Our month of silliness continues with a perhaps the silliest episode yet, “Shore Leave”! The crew of the Enterprise beams down to a planet where all sorts of weird desires come to life. Come for the absurd Irish stereotypes and stay for the weird ovapositor talk!
It’s Drunk Trek’s one year anniversary! To celebrate, we’re watching the most WTF episodes of Star Trek! Our first episode this month is the supremely weird Season 3 opener, “Spock’s Brain”! Take a listen as we discuss the most improbable search party in history, the lack of IT people in the future, and marvel at Leonard Nimoy’s most nuanced performance to date!
This week, we kick off our most fun themed block yet, “Alternate Universe” episodes! We start off the month with the classic Original Series episode “Mirror Mirror”, an episode that revolutionized portrayals of evil duplicates for decades to come. Don your evil goatee and join us as we: discuss Alternate Universe seduction techniques, laugh at campy 60’s fist fights, and discover which crew-member is packing rock hard abs!
We finish up our month of “Chris’s Picks” with the classic episode that spawned “The Wrath of Khan”, “Space Seed”! Listen in as we drunkenly marvel at Ricardo Montalbán, and determine what, exactly, a “Space Seed” is!
We wrap up “Amanda’s Favorites” with one of the most bat-shit crazy episodes of The Original Series, “The Savage Curtain”! This episode we can barely handle the arrival of Abraham Lincoln into the Star Trek canon; we also get a heaping dose of Vulcan Jesus, Space Hitler, and some really unfortunate makeup choices, don’t miss it!
We’re back from our long holiday hiatus! In (dis)honor of St. Valentine’s day, our theme this month is “Weird Sex Stuff”. Star Trek has a long history of weird sexy episodes, so we’ll start with this Original Series gem “The Naked Time”!
In this episode, we discover that there’s not actually that much weird sex stuff in this episode, that hazmat suits have seriously regressed in the future, and that time travel is really no big deal. Enjoy!
We drunkenly cross the finish line with this month’s theme of holiday episodes with the classic Star Trek Halloween episode “Catspaw”! This week Chris inexplicably (drunkenly) develops a terrible accent, we play a game of Fuck/Marry/Kill, and we express our love for cats.
We continue to get drunk with the holidays with Episode Two of our “Holiday Episode”-themed block of episodes, “Charlie X”! In this episode: we see (and can’t un-see) Kirk’s dick, we ponder the rules of Space Chess, and we discuss our love of reptiles…
This month our theme is Time Travel! We take our first dive into The Original Series with one of it’s most highly regarded episodes, the classic “City on the Edge of Forever.” We learn about how to use 60’s technology to predict the future, Kirk’s surprising sexual preferences, and the dangers of space meth!
