It is not uncommon to come across an episode of Star trek for which we have fond memories but when we come to watch it with fresh eyes, it doesn’t quite have the same appeal.

This is certainly true of Court-Martial: a first season courtroom drama with plenty of universe building, peril, and interpersonal drama but in the end falls apart a bit.

So join Terry, Graham and Derek as we review and reflect on this flawed yet still attractive jewel that is part of Star Trek’s might canon.

Terry, Graham and Derek return for another episode of Whom Pods Destroy and after a slight meander return to its core topic: Star Trek The Original Series.

And we’ve selected a beauty to discuss: “The Squire Of Gothos” – featuring the seminal character Trelane, played by the immaculate William Campbell. We explore the episodes excellent production choices and links to the Next Generation episode “Encounter at Farpoint”.
