Star Trek 3x07 - “Day of the Dove" - Stardate: Unknown
In “Day of the Dove,” a string of seemingly unexplainable events lead to the Enterprise playing host to a never-ending battle between Kirk’s crew and a small group of Klingons. It is eventually reveled that another alien being is playing the two sides against each other. This leads Kirk and Spock to form unlikely alliances with some of the Klingons in order to draw the alien out and expose it’s manipulation. My favorite part of this episode was Kirk muttering to himself “We’re becoming… animal… warriors….” (ellipses to emphasize the use of the Shatner Comma). Overall, not a bad one but also not particularly memorable either.

I just finished the first series of The Fall. In the beginning I wasn’t sure how I felt about the show, but I was compelled by Gillian Anderson’s character to keep watching. The show is not a so much a mystery, but more of a slow-paced thriller. I think the best descriptor I’ve read called the series “a story of two hunters.” It’s both creepy and beautifully written, and it has some of the smartest gender politics I’ve seen in a long time. All I’m saying is: if you give it time to build out you won’t regret it. The first series (5 episodes) is streaming on Netflix now. Series two is due out later this year.

Star Trek 3x06 - “Spectre of the Gun" - Stardate: 4385.3
When I saw gifs from this episode on tumblr, and knew it only as the ‘cowboy planet episode,” I was expecting it to be laughably bad. To my surprise, it turned out to be one of the most beautifully photographed and had one of the more unique plots in the entire series. I had a really difficult time picking a favorite screen shot. To clarify; there is not actually a cowboy planet. Kirk and several members of the crew become trapped in a fabricated reality based loosely on the wild west. The aliens behind the curtain are not actually cowboys. All in all, “Spectre of the Gun” is a great example of one of Star Trek’s more bizarre moments actually working in it’s own favor.
