Whom Pods Destroy continues its build-up to the 40th anniversary of Star Trek: The Motion Picture with a discussion on the second season original series episode which gare many similarities to the Motion Picture without having been acknowledged, The Changeling.
In the first of our series marking the 40th anniversary of Star Trek The Motion Picture, Whom Pods Destroy goes back to when Star Trek was but a glint in Gene Roddenberry’s eye and explore the 1956 science fiction masterpiece, Forbidden Planet.
It is an established fact that the MGM classic directly informed Gene Roddenberry’s thinking when developing the original series of Star Trek and if you’ve watched the film you can easily understand why. Terry, Derek and Graham reflect on this genre classic and celebrate its similarities with Trek.
We are delighted to return with another edition of Whom Pods Destroy – A Star Trek discussion podcast. In this edition, Terry, Graham and Derek discuss the big dog himself. James T Kirk.
The discussion reflects on the origins of the character, the journey he took throughout theOriginal Series and movies and they discuss the future of Starfleet’s greatest captain*
