There are few things that Star Trek fans entirely agree on but the overall disregard for The Way To Eden is probably among them. The notorious “space hippy” episode could have been a very intriguing story involving Dr McCoy’s daughter. Instead it was a jumble of conflicting messages and some terrible Russian accents. However, as with all episodes of The Original Series, there is usually something to find worthy of analysis and discussion.
In this episode of Whom Pods Destroy Terry, Derek and Graham dig a little deeper into this episode and ask is it really as bad as people say?
Graham, Terry and Derek return for another episode of Whom Pods Destroy. in this edition we celebrate Janice Rand. The short lived but much loved character from the first season of Star Trek: The Original Series played by Grace Lee Whitney.
In many ways Janice was a problematic character and the actress had a difficult time during production. The panel discuss the impact and influence of the character and speculate as to what Star Trek would have been had she remained as part of the Enterprise ensemble.
