Season 2, Episode 3: “The Doomsday Machine” (TOS) with Scott Pearson

It’s a close encounter of the deadly kind this week as the Enterprise must face a space log from another galaxy and a commodore who will sacrifice everyone to revenge himself on it! Author Scott Pearson is back this week to discuss the TOS episode, “The Doomsday Machine”, and we talk berserker probes, Star Trek and Melville, the dramatic stylings of Milton Berle, Trek Fu, and Nichelle Nichols’s singing career. This Moby Dick-metaphor is 20 billion tons of neutronium and could spell death for the whole galaxy! Problematic!

Check out what Scott is up to on his website,, and listen to his awesome podcast, Generations Geek, on the Chronic Rift Network!
