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.
This time around Dan finds himself with a legendary doctor, a sexy android, and Lurch in an old woman's house dress. Good thing Joey is there to make sense of the Star Trek season 1 episode, What Are Little Girls Made Of?
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.
This time around Dan deals with the oddly titled The Naked Time. Dealing with maniacally laughing crewmen, a time warp, and a shirtless sword swinging Sulu. Fortunately superfan Joey is there to explain it all, even the ladies obsession with wooing Mr. Spock.
This time around Dan runs into Charlie X, a teenager on the Enterprise who's never seen a girl and has some serious maturity problems. Oh, and some super powers. He has those too. Fortunately Joey is also there to make this story make sense.
In this pilot episode of Attempting Trek, non Star Trek fan Dan begins his journey through The Original Series,attempting to develop an appreciation for Trek. Urged on by his Star Trek loving brother Joey, they start right at the beginning with the Star Trek pilot, The Cage.
