Whom Pods Destroy: Prime Directive, Cargo Cults & Village People

The Prime Directive: a super-trope that has been the effective source of dramatic tension for a host of Star Trek episodes.

In this edition of Whom Pods Destroy, Terry, Graham and Derek look at the genesis of the non-interference rule and pick out some good and not so good examples of Starfleet’s most important law.

Whom Pods Destroy: Errand of Mercy and Day of the Dove

kirkandkor3After our broad discussion on Klingons from the original series of Star Trek in Episode 5, we look at two classic Klingon TOS episodes: Errand of Mercy and Day of the Dove.

Errand of Mercy is one of our favourite episodes of TOS and we examine the rich plot that would probably fill an entire story arc if it were a modern TV show. We also talk about the Organians and speculate as to the nature of Kirk’s relationship with Kor.

Being a third season episode we were a little more cautious about Day of the Dove. However, we were more than pleasantly surprise by this episode and found much that relates to the times that we live in now.
