Getting prepared for the 35th anniversary of Wrath of Khan, Dan plunges head first into Space Seed and finds the 90's are back in the worst way when Khan, a genetically superior superman from 1996 and his crew are woken up and decide it's a good time to take over. Take over what? What have you got? Good thing Joey is there to explain where all this is coming from and where it's going.
This time around Dan finds himself dealing with a treasonous Mr. Spock, a forced rewatching of The Cage, and a court martial. Kirk meets Pike and all space hell is going to break out. Sort of. Good thing Joey is around to explain everything that's going on in The Managerie, because to be honest, someone needs to.
This time around Dan is beyond frustrated with navigator Bailey, whose incompetence is off the charts. And that's not even mentioning the real problems at hand: A giant floating cube, a bubble spaceship, and the greatest bluff in the history of the known universe. Fortunately Joey is here to take the wheel and guide us through season one, episode 10 of TOS The Carbomite Maneuver. And...is that Clint Howard??
Dan finds out that not all penal colonies are like resorts. In fact some of them have brain erasing beams run by lunatic doctors. It's not a good situation even though the sight of Dr. Helen Noel is a welcome one. Fortunately Joey is there to help navigate this look at season one episode, Dagger of the Mind. A complete breakdown of the episode, behind the scenes information, and finally an explanation of Dr. Adams motives are all in this episode of Attempting Trek.
This time around Dan finds himself not on Earth, but another Earth! And worse yet this Earth is full annoying kids and a deadly disease that ruins your tan, makes you insane, and kills you for good measure. Fortunately Joey is there with the antidote as they both break down the Star Trek episode Miri, from season 1, episode 8.
There is trouble brewing for Dan as he attempts to get through Mudd's Women. There's a nefarious charlatan on board the enterprise with a bevy of distractingly attractive women with him. Hopefully Joey can guide our hero through this episode.
This time around Dan finds himself dealing with not just one, but TWO Captain Kirks! One good, the other not so good and in a mood of liquor and ladies. Not to mention a dog in an alien suit, Sulu freezing on a planet, and a busted transporter. As always Joey is there to make sure it all makes sense as they both look at The Enemy Within.
