Episode 8: A Piece Of The Action and Patterns Of Force

In terms of aesthetic, A Piece Of The Action and Patterns Of Force are two of the most iconic episodes of Star Trek: The Original Series but are they any good?

In this episode of Whom Pods Destroy Derek, Terry and Graham talk about these two second season episodes. We speculate as to what, if anything, they were trying to say culturally and politically. We also examine Patterns Of Force’s very specific contribution to fan fiction.

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.
