    Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (Part 2)

    Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (Part 2)

    In part two of our deep dive of "Star Trek III" on "Enterprise Incidents with Scott & Steve" (along with special guest John Rocha), Admiral Kirk and his loyal crew violate Starfleet orders in their efforts to save Spock and McCoy. They steal the Enterprise and return to the Genesis planet, only to find that the Klingons are already there interrogating the survivors of the U.S.S. Grissom -- Lt. Saavik and Dr. David Marcus -- about the so-called Genesis "doomsday weapon." But the Enterprise is not up for a full-on battle with the Klingons, forcing Kirk to make a huge sacrifice and once again turn death into a fighting chance to live. The second half of "The Search for Spock" features many scenes that are among the very best from any of the "Star Trek" films: the stealing of the Enterprise, the battle with the Klingons, Kirk's emotional reaction to the death of his son and, of course, the destruction of the Enterprise itself (which, for many fans, was even more traumatic than the death of Spock at the end of "The Wrath of Khan"). But rather than end with a big action scene, "Star Trek III" concludes on a more intimate note with the resurrection of Spock and his reunion with his friends. It's an emotionally satisfying conclusion that's more effective now than it was back in 1984, thanks to the benefits that come with time and perspective. To put it another way, think of it like this: If Spock died saving the Enterprise in "Star Trek II," then the Enterprise returned the favor in "Star Trek III." "The Search for Spock" may often be criticized for being a bit too somber when compared to its more vibrant and exciting predecessor, but the mood would definitely pick up after that during their voyage home.

    Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (Part 1)

    Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (Part 1)

    Just in time for the 40th Anniversary of "Star Trek III: The Search for Spock," Scott & Steve are stealing "Enterprise Incidents" for a special 2-part deep dive into this underrated "Star Trek" classic.

    Soon after the U.S.S. Enterprise returns to earth bruised and battered after Captain Spock died saving the ship during the battle in the Mutara Nebula, Admiral James T. Kirk learns that his beloved starship is going to be decommissioned. Plus, all is not well with his friend, Dr. Leonard McCoy, who has been acting strangely. That's when he receives a visit from Spock's father, Sarek, who questions why he left Spock's body behind on the Genesis planet. It turns out that Spock's essence had been merged with McCoy's, and now both of them are in danger, unless Kirk can take matters into his own hands and bring them to Vulcan. Originally released on June 1, 1984, "Star Trek III" has always been seen as a solid, but somewhat unspectacular installment of the "Genesis Trilogy," even though it featured the directorial debut of none other than Leonard Nimoy. But upon closer inspection, "The Search for Spock" is a better movie than it was ever given credit for, and it features stellar performances from William Shatner, DeForest Kelley and Christopher Lloyd as Klingon Commander Kruge.

    Scott and Steve are thrilled to be joined for this conversation by Steve's partner from The Cine-Files (and fellow Star Trek fan) John Rocha.

    Recap: "Star Trek: The Animated Series"

    Recap: "Star Trek: The Animated Series"

    Our voyage through "The Animated Series" comes to a close, and as you will hear in our recap, "The Animated Series" was indeed worthy of the "Star Trek" name, and hopefully this otherwise underrated and overlooked series will be better appreciated as it celebrates its landmark 50th anniversary!

    TAS-22) The Counter-Clock Incident

    TAS-22) The Counter-Clock Incident

    For our deep dive of the final episode of "Star Trek: The Animated Series," we're excited and honored to be joined by a very special guest: "John Culver," a.k.a. Fred Bronson, who not only wrote "The Counter-Clock Incident," but was also the studio publicist for "The Animated Series."

    While pursuing an alien ship traveling at high warp speed, the Enterprise passes through the remnants of the Beta Niobe supernova, only to emerge in an alternate universe where everything works in reverse -- and the crew begins to age backwards. In order to return to their own universe, they must figure out a way to replicate the conditions that got them here, but they must do so before they become too young to be able to operate their own ship. Their only hope lies with their very special passenger: 75-year-old Commodore Robert April, the first captain of the Enterprise who was en route to the planet Babel for a retirement ceremony, but must now once again assume command as the only senior officer capable of saving the ship.

    Even though "How Sharper than a Serpent's Tooth" was the episode that won "Star Trek" its Emmy Award for Outstanding Children's Program, you couldn't have asked for a better episode to close out "The Animated Series" than "The Counter-Clock Incident." In addition to being filled with suspense, excitement, humor and a lot of heart, it brings "Star Trek" full circle from its earliest origins, when Gene Roddenberry wrote his first treatment of "Star Trek" back in March of 1964. With the conclusion of "The Counter-Clock Incident," the first phase of "Star Trek" was now truly over -- but as we all know, the human adventure was just beginning.

    TAS-21) How Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth

    TAS-21) How Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth

    The Enterprise follows a propulsion trail left behind by an alien space probe that scanned Earth, only to become trapped by an alien ship that takes the form of a massive winged serpent. The Enterprise helmsman, Ensign Walking Bear, recognizes the form as Kukulkan, a deity whose presence on Earth traces back to ancient Aztec and Mayan civilizations. After all this time, Kukulkan has returned and demands to be worshipped by the Enterprise crew. Of course, Captain Kirk isn't going to let that happen. With "The Animated Series" winding down, it went out on a high note with its penultimate episode, "How Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth," which was the first "Star Trek" episode to feature a Native American as an Enterprise crew member. It also has the distinction of being the episode that won "Star Trek" its 1975 Emmy Award for Outstanding Entertainment: Children's Program (it also won the Peabody Award). No animated TV series could go out on a higher note than that.

    TAS-20) Albatross

    TAS-20) Albatross

    Following a successful mission to deliver medical supplies to a planet in the Dramian star system, Dr. McCoy is accused of causing a plague that wiped out the population of another planet where he performed a mass inoculation many years before. In an effort to investigate the charges, Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock take the Enterprise to Dramia II, where they meet a plague survivor who turns out to be a key witness in McCoy's defense. But soon after they beam back to the Enterprise, the entire crew falls ill, except for the immune Mr. Spock, who now has to race against time to find a cure and save the crew. While rebounding significantly from "The Practical Joker," "Albatross" still falls short of the best of "The Animated Series" due to a flawed teleplay that's ripe with contrivances. But as always, it has its merits, and in true "Star Trek" fashion, "Albatross" is redeemed by the core relationship between Kirk, Spock and McCoy, in which two of them will do anything to save the other.

damn you apple my name is dave ,

Outstanding show

Scott and Steve have been my constant companions for Sunday chores and Sunday night cooking for many a month now. Looking forward to more!

Look No Further

I have listened to countless ST TOS podcasts and Enterprise Incidents is hands down, bar none, the best of them all. The balance between Scott and Steve works wonderfully - Scott's mind for detail and Steve's understanding of narrative and production. The guest stars who help them evaluate TOS is itself impressive - Walter Koenig, Adam Nimoy, Bill Shatner, Ralph Senensky, David Gerrold to name a few. But most importantly, what makes it great is S&S's ability to, while placing the episodes in their cultural context, delve into and reveal the thematic threads and ideas within each episode and the series as a whole. For their stellar exegesis, I can't thank S&S enough.
