And the Siblings are now back to join Mindless Droid in discussing the episode “A Taste of Armageddon,” the summary of which can be read here http://www.startrek.com/database_article/taste-of-armageddon and the actual episode can be viewed here http://www.startrek.com/watch_episode/HqaYmv7_wnga (Maybe we should ask for less secret missions in order to co-write every week instead of every few weeks.)

“All of my old friends look like doctors, all of his look like you.” – Doctor McCoy to Shaw (Sister’s favorite quote from the episode.)

And we’re back for this week’s OS Star Trek blog; it’s good to be once again in friendly Federation space let us tell you, but no one is supposed to know that we were on a secret mission into the Romulan Neutral Zone, so shhhhhhh. This week’s episode is “Court Martial.” You can read the synopsis here http://www.startrek.com/database_article/court-martial and watch it here http://www.startrek.com/watch_episode/8kMGlVQlFwYH

First off, we would like to thank Mindless Droid for filling in for us last week. He did a good job writing about an episode that does not particularly stand out in any way.

This week’s episode is “Arena.” You can read the summary of it here, http://www.startrek.com/database_article/arena and you can watch it here http://www.startrek.com/watch_episode/mikNELiCbYTB. The story is also based off of a science fiction story of the same name that neither of us has read, so Sister found an article comparing them, and you can read it here http://barebonesez.blogspot.com/2011/04/fredric-brown-on-tv-part-five-star-trek.html.

Random Thoughts on Star Trek: Into Darkness

May 23, 2013 in Guest Blogs by Firebird

A guest blog by Sister

First off, I am weird. I know this. I have been told so by multiple people. My brain is wired strangely, so I can care a great deal about fictional characters, almost as it I really knew them. When I watch movies I practically live what’s on screen. This probably accounts for why I tend to not see bad acting, I simply assume that is how the character would act. Oh, and I consider myself a Trekker, even though I have only watched TOS and the movies I through VI and XI and XII, and still haven’t seen the episode “Friday’s Child.” I plan on putting all of the spoiler content together at the end of this blog post, but I am assuming that you have seen the trailers for the movie. Anyhow, that seems like enough of a disclaimer to me.
