Episode 49 – Nomad is such a bloke

Nomad
Nomad can destroy worlds but can’t cope when a woman expresses herself.

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.

Episode 48 – Forbidden Planet (Star Trek -1)

Captain John J Adams, Morbius, Altaira and Robby the Robot in the 1956 sci-fi retelling of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Forbidden Planet.

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.

Episode 5: Original Series Klingons

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.

The portrayal of Artificial intelligence and Androids in Star Trek: The Original Series are the subject of the latest edition of Whom Pods Destroy.

Terry, Graham and Derek discuss the numerous references to AI and artificial life from mass society micro management machines to transference of consciousness into an android body to merging with a sentient mechanised life-form and to an starship computer with a sense of humour.

The existence of God or god like entities, the role of religion, and a preoccupation of a creator have often been a feature in The Original Series and movies of Star Trek . In our second episode, Terry Duffelen, Derek Mantle and Graham Sibley discuss God, the creator, and religion in Star Trek and ask if the show had a consistent message on these weighty topics.
