World’s Worst Trekkie: Carlie Takes On “The City on the Edge of Forever”

World’s Worst Trekkie: Carlie Takes On “The Alternative Factor”

I assumed that “Mirror, Mirror” would be TOS’s first foray into the subject of parallel universes, but apparently, I was wrong: “The Alternative Factor” is not, as I initially suspected, some sci-fi parable about false alien prophets and resurrection, but … Continue reading

World’s Worst Trekkie: Carlie Takes On “A Taste of Armageddon”

Now that I’ve finished obsessively watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine–well, until Season 6 comes out in January, that is–it’s time to return to TOS. Today’s episode is all about the cost of war, and while it’s probably one of the best TOS … Continue reading
