Welcome to the first episode of THE SANCTUARY, a Star Trek Politics & Economics Podcast.
Star Trek: The Original Series debuted in 1966 amidst a decade that served as a powder keg of political and racial tension, much of the former built around US intervention in Vietnam, with the country drawn into a bloody, intractable conflict which raged for a decade.
In this premiere episode of The Sanctuary, host Tony Black is joined by guest, author & critic Darren Mooney, to discuss how TOS engages with Vietnam through the prism of four key episodes from the 1960's: City on the Edge of Forever, A Private Little War, The Omega Glory & Let That Be Your Last Battlefield, to try and understand how the series reflects and tries to understand the Vietnam War in context with American politics and society.
