Get Offa My Cloud

"Come on baby, get out your space titties, let's have a good time" Trek TV #73 Hi Trek TV Friends, It's fun hearing you discover for yourselves those little Trek data nuggets, like where Memory Alpha gets it's name and what Scotty first one is. And you, my Trek TV Friends, so very often observe things about these episodes which I failed, after so very many viewing to see, such as the fuckie way Bone-Bone discloses and discusses Lt. Arugelas psychiatric back story. Well noted Tracy. A song which expressed that era's patronizing view housewife mental heath, another topic touched on tangentially by the last podcast, is playing secretly, san libretto beneath my words. If you can guess this obscure title, you win nothing, this is not a contest. I like the verb-noun 'nurd-birch' from last week, is that another Vaughn coined term? moving on….. I always think number 74 called The Cloud MINORS, either for the mines below or because Droxie, the girl with her head in the clouds may actually be younger than the age of consent. Watch out science officer! Scince when did Spock start hitting on girls girls anyway? I think they were trying to milk the sex appeal of Nimoy as a last ditch effort to save the show. This is the last episode I ever saw of TOS before I'd sen them all, I kept missing it, i knew there was one episode I'd missed then when I finally did catch it, well, it gave me a lot to think about…. Lounging listless in the family palace whilst in contemplation over fine art and philosophy, wandering through the well manicured topiary garden in my Grecian tunic and bikini top, all at once, after my initial viewing of this profound morality play, seemed a tad extravagant as my life of privilege came at the cost of the well being of those little people who toiled down the hill. Pangs of conscience got the better of me and I have lived among the hoy paloy ever sense, enduring, as I now do, a life of recompense. Also I think it's massive weird that Kirk decides to take a nap planet-side. Why not just just beam home at bedtime. I'd travel so much more if I could do that. Next week it's the space hippies, it's gonna be awesome, I mean groovy Aching with sincerity
