055: Armchair Philosophers (TOS "Assignment Earth")

"Now hear this. Now hear this. On this week's episode of Kirking Off, Kirk and his gallant crew decide to head back to 1968 to do some historical research, and it is here that they meet Gary Seven, an intergalactic man of mystery who tells the captain that he has come to save humanity from itself. But what if Mr. Seven is there - with his 'totally perfect body' - to change history for the worse? Could he be an evil alien bent on destroying humanity? Lots covered this week, and most of it is tangential to the episode. Nate and Dean get into: television versus movie stars, professional athlete pay scales, the proposed Gary Seven tv show, old-timey misogyny, science and technology outpacing social and political growth, and understanding the improving quality of life throughout history. Time for me to step aside and work on my gratitude list, so we can get on with the episode. We present to you “Assignment Earth” from Star Trek: The Original Series."
