Star Trek Re-Watch: “The Cloud Minders”

Hey, kids! It’s Thursday, and you know what that means! Another exciting installment of Star Trek Re-Watch, brought to you by me and David Mack (infinitydog) and hosted by people who really should know better than to keep paying us to do this, Tor.com.

This week, we’re high in the sky without a care in the air as we pay a visit to “The Cloud Minders.” That’s right, it’s a Star Trek parable detailing the struggle of the working class in the face of the ruling elite, brought to you with all the subtlety of a three-chili fart in an elevator. Mr. Mack is on tap to provide the episode recap this time around, while I get saddled with providing thought-provoking analysis and insightful commentary. Well, that was the plan, anyway.

So, head over to Tor.com if you’re of a mind to do so, and check out our yammerings. And feel free to wade into the comment pool and offer your thoughts, as well. Our benevolent masters love it when we bring friends over to play. Besides, Dayton needs a new bottle of vodka. Why? Don’t you know what’s coming next week? Ugh.

The Mack/Ward Star Trek Re-Watch Archive:

Next Voyage: Four decades and two years ago, somebody thought it’d be awesome to have Abe Lincoln show up on Star Trek. Who’d think that would be the least dumbest thing about next week’s episode? It’s “The Savage Curtain!”

“Help me, Spock. Help me……Spock.”

Lay it on me.
