025: Will You Just Fu#k Already! (TOS "The Menagerie: Part 2")
Play • 1 hr 9 min

"Now hear this. Now hear this. On this week's episode of Kirking Off we get back to the mentally advanced Talosians who have dreamed themselves into being incapable of handling basic mechanical things - like fixing their own toasters. Their solution seems to be an elaborate mating scheme and Captain Pike must struggle between principle and desire as he is tempted at each turn by the seductive illusions of his alien captors. Is the conundrum which the Talosians face proof that holodecks are bullsh*t? Will the temptations thrust upon Pike be too much to overwhelm his 60s knightly Christian virtue? Are we all closer to Cipher from The Matrix than we are willing to admit? I present to you "The Menagerie: Part 2", from Star Trek: The Original Series."
