When Sarah and Allie are depressed and not excited about decorating for Christmas, the Ghost of Christmas Past yoinks them back to the past – 1881 in Tombstone, Arizona, to be exact. Will this stupid episode of Star Trek reignite their Christmas spirit? Not likely.

When a bunch of Children of the Corn on a scientific outpost cause their parents to Jim Jones themselves, they call to the guardians of the watchtowers of the East and release “he who walks behind the rows” back into the galaxy.

Star Trek continues to be relevant as ever as we question whether innocent followers who don’t know any better are just as liable as the evil people pulling the strings? People who aren’t taught critical thinking and scientific skepticism are very susceptible to “fake news” and “stolen elections” and “vaccine disinformation”? SAY IT AIN’T SO!

When the Enterprise crosses into the Romulan DMZ, Spock fingers a Romulan Commander while Kirk steals a cloaking device (treaty be damned). Is it “OK” to do things during war that would otherwise violate your values? Why does this episode seem to say “yes”? Just what does a Vulcan penis look like, anyway?
