Hey, it’s Thursday! The penultimate day of the work week brings with it another scintillating installment of Star Trek Re-Watch, brought to you by me and David Mack (infinitydog) and hosted by our benevolent masters at Tor.com.
This week, we reach the end of the original Star Trek‘s broadcast run with that complex, thought-provoking morality tale that turns its scrutinizing spotlight on the ongoing issue of gender equality. Okay, not really. It’s the one where James Kirk switches bodies with a woman, and we’re supposed to believe he never let his fingers do the walking, if you know what I mean. It’s “Turnabout Intruder,” which serves as the original series’ swan song before fading into television oblivion…never to be heard from again.
So, wander on over to Tor.com, whydontcha, and check out our latest blatherings. Feel free to join the comment train, too. Our bosses like it when we
sucker people drive traffic to the website.

Next Week: Dave and I offer our “final thoughts” on Star Trek‘s third season. Join us as we run down the Good, the Bad, and the Oh-What-the-Hell-Were-They-Thinking. The week after that? A special edition of Star Trek Re-Watch, as we turn our Snarkometers on the original series first pilot, “The Cage.” Why? Because we really can’t end this shin-dig with such a crappy taste in our mouths, right?
