Episode 6: 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.

Episode 5: Original Series Klingons

kor1

Join Terry, Derek and Graham on an epic journey through the Klingons of Star Trek The Original Series and subsequent movies.

The guys discuss the three big Klingon characters of TOS: Kor, Kang & Koloth and compare them to their ridged compatriots in the movies such as Kruge, Gorkon, Chang and co. They ask if there is any connections with post TOS Klingons and if the stories told featuring these Klingons resonate today. The conversation also diverts to a quick chat on the Klingon D7 ships and the Italian space opera Star Crash.
