This week we talk about the relationship that came to define Star Trek: The Original Series, that of the friendship between Kirk and Spock (with a little McCoy thrown in). We talk about “City on the Edge of Forever” featuring Joan Collins as a social worker and apple of Jim Tiberius Kirk’s eye, at least on that particular week. We look at “Amok Time” and the importance of Spock’s violent puberty in defining his role on the show. Of course, no podcast episode focusing on old Star Trek episodes talking about how much Kirk and Spock love each other could ignore “Mirror, Mirror”, an episode featuring evil bearded Spock, who it turns out isn’t all that different from clean-shaven Spock.
