Episode 20: Tomorrow is Yesterday

Tomorrow is Yesterday

A Viet Nam era jet is scrambled over U.S. airspace to check out a time-travelling UFO, leading to the TrekQuesters’ highest rated episode to date.

Combining one of the best Kirk fights ever with a big dose of geeky Trek humor, Tomorrow is Yesterday is a great example of the things we love most about ST:TOS (with the notable exception of attractive female yeomen and/or aliens).

With this first plot focused on time travel, Star Trek makes a big leap into one of science fiction’s great “final frontiers.” Is time travel actually possible? We’ll leave that to future physicists to figure out. But is a time-travelling Kirk neck-flipping a 1960s security guard hilarious? Yes, yes it is.

Episode 6: “The Naked Time”

The Naked Time Sulu with a Sword

Madness reigns as the Enterprise crew faces its inner demons under the influence of a strange alien disease.

On this Special Easter Edition of The TrekQuest Podcast, orange shower curtains can’t protect Spock and expendable crewman Joe from contacting a psychosis-inducing red liquid substance. Passed through contact, the disease is shared with Sulu, our newest navigator Kevin Thomas Riley, Nurse Chappel, Spock, and eventually Captain Kirk himself. Strangely, Bones seems completely immune to the emotionally-inflating disease, perhaps because he is so over-emotional to begin with.

The TrekQuesters had a great time discussing this episode’s classic scenes, from Sulu running around shirtless with a fencing sword to Spock crying like a baby (and then punching Kirk across a table). Even Uhura got a chance to tell Kirk off in this show, a moment we’re sure Nichelle Nichols enjoyed immensely.

Do you know how many bobby pins are in Nurse Chappel’s hair? Do you have a better body than Sulu? Could you beat Kevin Riley at “I’ll take you home again Kathleen” karaoke? Let us know your thoughts in the comments or send us an email at StarTrekQuest@gmail.com.
