SHIP TO SHIP: A Star Trek Podcast Show 202 “You’re Out Of Order!”
We look at “The Cage,” the first sanctioned pilot of Star Trek: The Original Series, and it’s sister episode, the cobbled-together flashback ditty, “The Menagerie.” “The Menagerie” is listed as one of Gene Roddenberry’s top ten favorites episodes of the original run. In “Court Martial,” Kirk is, without credible evidence, tried for the murder of Ben Finney and prosecuted by his ex-girlfriend. Data’s rights as a sentient life-form with free-will come into question in “The Measure of a Man,” one of the first great episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
