That Time On...

That Time On Star Trek #9

Engage impulse engines for another installment of That Time On Star Trek by Brent Kincade!  Riffing on the voyages of the Starship Enterprise, our regular meme-feature lovingly pokes fun (MST3K-style) at those oddball moments and characters that populate the classic Star Trek universe.

To commemorate the 19th anniversary of Jerry Garcia’s passing, this installment of #ThatTimeOnStarTrek is a long, strange trip back to The Way To Eden (1969) from the third season of Star Trek.  The episode is normally considered The One With The Space Hippies, but if one can look beyond the hokey musical numbers and the future-distilled, homogenized hippie speak, there is a smart little social commentary that packs a Twilight Zone shock ending!

That Time On Star Trek #09 - "The Way To Eden"


TREK FUN FACT: The original draft of the script by D.C. Fontana featured information about Dr. McCoy’s past, including his troubled marriage that led him to Starfleet and his daughter, Joanna.

About the author

Brent Kincade

Brent Kincade was born under the sign of Pertwee and has often wondered if there was an alternate universe where Aquaman was instead called Waterhombre. He also spends a fair amount of his waking life patiently waiting for friends to mention a Thunderdome so he can roll his eyes and plead, "Can't we just get BEYOND Thunderdome??" (Six times, thus far.)

His first comic book was Spidey Super Stories #4 in 1974, his first Star Trek episode was "City On The Edge of Forever" in 1975, his first Doctor Who was "The Visitation" in 1984.

Once when he was young, he stashed his vinyl Halloween Spider-Man costume in the neighbor lady's shrubs and was later caught red-handed, crawling into the shrubs to change into costume because he had, "Heard a cry for help".

He's a father, an artist, a graphic designer, a cartoonist, and usually pretty handy in a pinch. Brent is the creator of #ThatTimeOnDrWho, #ThatTimeOnStarTrek, #ThatTimeOnStarWars and co-creator of "The Magic Cantina". Brent requests the story of his days be co-written by Harlan Ellison, Steven Moffat and Neil Gaiman, drawn by John Romita, scored by Ben Folds and riffed on by the fine folks at Mystery Science Theater 3000.
