    Thanks boys. I have always had a relationship with Trek since watching reruns with my Mom and going to the The Motion Picture back in 79/80, best I can do for the date, I was 5.

    You guys remind me why I will always have affection for Trek.

    Thanks for doing the show.

    1- Vinyl record scratches….. nice but not sure younger listeners will relate.

    2-Love the Siri vox. Looking forward to it sounding better as this podcast goes forward
    and Siri’s technology improves.

    3-PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE fix (De-ess) the ‘sibilance’ on John’s mic. Four episodes now.
    His ‘S”s are killing me in my headphones.

    4- The phenomenon of ‘E.S.P’. was largely unknown to the general public in 1966.
    At the time this was a ‘cutting edge’ topic.

    5-At approx the 12 minute mark, Spock is on the bridge reading seemingly
    info on both Gary and the the guest doc in the form of (a sort of) ‘Personal Cards’.

    There is sooo much info on those cards I had to freeze a few frames to read it all.

    No way could those cards have been read while watching this episode on
    ‘normal’ television in 1966. Nice detail trek guys.

    5-In every episode so far Kirk has found a way to ‘Show Some Skin’.
    ‘I see you managed to get you shirt off’ —Galaxy Quest

    6-Moral. What do humans have in common with species like
    rats,fleas,roaches etc.
    Very little and at most (as Spock said} perhaps just an annoyance.
    These are lifeforms with which humans do not/can not communicate.

    Gary would soon see all humans (including the doc) that way.
    That is why the doc helped to kill Gary. Her ‘street sense’
    finally kicked in.

    Looking forward to the next episode guys

    Arther C Clark wrote 2001 at the same time he worked with Kubrick on the screen play and the planet of interest was always Jupiter.

    I love this episode…I consider Star Trek 5 to be a very weak remake of this. Right down to going through the barrier.

    Great episode, everyone! Can’t wait to see what is coming around the corner

    STAR TREK wasn’t actually unique in sf a/v by 1966 in being relatively sophisticated, in fact had been exceeded a decade+ earlier by a radio series (or, arguably two radio series, since it had a hiatus on NBC and came back with a new title), DIMENSION X (and, later, X MINUS ONE). But ST was employing a number of actual, major and minor sf writers, and that didn’t hurt its reception…including the pilot appearing at TriCon, the 1966 world convention taking place that year in Chicago (attendance about 850, btw): a reminiscence by Steven Towsley

    The most memorable thing, in retrospect, is that the STAR TREK TV pilot was previewed at this Con with Gene Roddenberry speaking and taking questions. For the life of me I can’t recall whether it was the version before or after Bill Shatner was added to it — of course the Captain of the Enterprise wasn’t an American icon yet, so this may be forgiven. The TIME TUNNEL pilot was also introduced in a similar format. FANTASTIC VOYAGE was privately previewed for conventioneers at a nearby movie theater. I met FV’s publicity field rep, Rik Newman; he traded me a complete set of full-color glossy FANTASTIC VOYAGE lobby photos for my (apparently rare) publicity photo of two characters in JACK THE GIANT KILLER and the promise of some ONE MILLION YEARS B.C. material, which he sent later after the film came out.
