We don’t always talk about The Corbomite Maneuver, but when we do, it’s on this episode! New York Times and USA Today best-selling author David R. George III joins the show to talk about the first non-pilot episode of Star Trek, and along the way, we discuss how Trek became Trek, the inclusiveness of Trek’s future, what it takes to command a starship, and the search for the unknown!
Plus, we discuss the show’s humanistic principles in a military sci-fi setting, we share mutual love for a good countdown, we talk deus ex devices, and Dave gives us insight into the process of developing a Star Trek script while I try to convince him that The Most Interesting Man in the World is in this episode!
Take all that, add Clint Howard and three fingers of tranya, pour into your ears and enjoy!
