Star Trek: TOS – S03E07, Day of the Dove

Day of the Dove couldn’t have been more explicit in his condemnation of war, violence, and torture. The episodes sends this pacifist message totally in line with the ideals of Gene Roddenberry with a story with Klingons, now undoubtedly the most present antagonists of Kirk and the whole Federation (see Errand of Mercy, Friday’s Child, … More Star Trek: TOS – S03E07, Day of the Dove

Star Trek: TOS – S03E04, And the Children Shall Lead

It seems that there’s no smooth sailing in this third season. After two good episodes that followed a bad start to the season, here’s another forgettable episode. And the Children Shall Lead deals with the importance of experiencing loss, and the importance of crying and of expressing one’s emotions. These are good life lessons that … More Star Trek: TOS – S03E04, And the Children Shall Lead

Star Trek: TOS – S03E03, The Paradise Syndrome

Star Trek: TOS – S02E20, Return to Tomorrow

Return to Tomorrow is a memorable episode for a few reasons. Personally, I couldn”t help but think “Doctor Pulaski!” all the time since one of the guest stars is Diana Muldaur playing Lieutenant Commander Mulhall. For the uninitiated, in the second season of The Next Generation, Muldaur would play Dr. Pulaski replacing Beverly Crusher (a … More Star Trek: TOS – S02E20, Return to Tomorrow

Star Trek: TOS – S02E18, The Immunity Syndrome

The Immunity Syndrome is the eighteenth episode of the second season of the original Star Trek series and, let me tell you, it’s a great one. It’s entirely based on the wonderful relationship of friendship and respect between Mr. Spock and Dr. McCoy and they have memorable dialogues and interactions in it. But let’s start … More Star Trek: TOS – S02E18, The Immunity Syndrome
