Hi Trek TV Friends Return to Methuselah.... inspired by Wild Bill Shakesperes' THE TEMPEST? Not quite, it was inspired by Robbie The Robots erstwhile star vehicle Forbidden Planet, which was inspired by The Tempest. What ever, everything s inpired by something ol' shakey baked and he in tern pinched from prior sources. The Tempest may have been ripped from the headlines, something about a shipwreck and the adventures in Bermuda which ensued. Other academics suggest the influence of Naufragium by Dutch theologian Erasmus. There's more but no matter, Whats cool is that the play was written during the halcyon days of trans-continetal exploration and writers were free to tell tall tale from lands little or entirely unknown. For the sixteenth centurions this was science fiction, and therefore awesome. Well unless you were already living in one of these new-to- Europe places, Among the canvases lining the walls of Flints keep are those of an artist named Reginald Pollack, a real 20th century painter. Are they implying that this was Flint too? How did he feel about this? He was alive until 2001. Who decided that Flint couldn't be Jack the Dripper? That Jacksons, the more famous, Pollack. Star Trek does this occasionally, replacing historical reality people with its own characters. Is that right? Answer, yes. Boy Howdy TOS is really winding down. Are you gonna do a live show for the final? I promise to shut the fuck up in the chat room this time, well promise is kind of a strong word…
