Given that that program was aired in the late Sixties, there shouldn't be any spoilers for you at all, unless you're new to Star Trek, in which case, welcome!

Shakespeare, Steinbeck, Ralph Ellison...all masters at their craft. Then there's Harlan Ellison, Gene L. Coon, and D.C.

With the help of comic book writer and Red Shirt fan emeritus Dallas Casavant, The Red Shirts delve into reviewing this classic episode of the original series today,May 27, coincidentally the birthday of writer Harlan Ellison. We get into a little bit of comic book talk and the crew nearly mutinies when Q reveals a guilty TV pleasure!
