Friday (12/23/11) 11:37pm - ... wherein Peter posts some notes about Star Trek.

I figured I'd post some notes I've taken on my ST:TOS[1] viewing so far, as preparation for the upcoming Twilight Zoned/Start Trekkin' Science Fiction Double Feature at the Hideout Theatre.

Re. "completely beyond their science" - that's kinda the POINT of their mission (ergo the show), for them to find things totally unexpected.

Re. "knocked unconscious by a single punch" - the judo chops to the neck are even more hilarious with their ratio of violent force to stunning power. It's possible to deliver a judo chop EXACTLY as depicted on the show with no danger to your castmate.

Point taken.  I just find it funny -- finest ship in the fleet, and seemingly every entity they meet can handily trap them in a magical force-field or something.

Oh yeah, plenty of comedy potential no matter what.
