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.

Apologies for some of the clipping in this episode.

The Conscience of the King is one of the least celebrated but one of the best ever episodes of Star Trek. At least that what we think.

In this episode of Whom Pods Destroy, Terry, Derek and Graham discuss this multi-layered play within a TV play from the first season of The Original Series.

They also ask if Lenore Karidian should be considered as one of the great villains of Star Trek.

We are delighted to be back with another edition of Whom Pods Destroy. In this episode we discuss the early Season 1 episode of Star Trek The Original Series called Dagger of the Mind.

We see for the first time the Vulcan mind meld in this episode. Dagger of the Mind also resonates today with its themes on abuse of power, misplaced trust and issues regarding our penal systems. There is also some stonking trivia relating to one of the show’s guest stars, Marianna Hill.

In this edition of Whom Pods Destroy we continue our musings on The City On The Edge Of Forever by discussing writer Harlan Ellison’s original teleplay to the series which was heavily rewritten, much to the anger of Mr Ellison.

We offer our opinions of the script and ask if the rewrites improved it or were justified.
