Star Trek: The Original Series - Episode 10: The Corbomite Maneuver

Episode 10 - The Corbomite Maneuver 

Just to jog your memory about this episode. . .
  • Spinning Rubik's Cube of Color (We've never been out this far before).
  • Lt. Bailey tries Spock's Patience
  • Oooo... Captain Kirk working out. Really amping up the sex-appeal.
  • Spock recommends Lt. Bailey have his adrenaline gland removed, because it is hindering his work performance.
  • Woah! First whole-ship rockin'! First Phaser Fire.
  • OMG those ear things are bothering me! 
  • Constantly questioning Spock gives Kirk emotional security. (A personal connection.)
  • So when McCoy is bored, he comes and hangs out on the Bridge? 
  • OH! Lt. Bailey was promoted too quickly. Wants to be too much like a young Kirk. 
  • Success rate 94%. . . Let's try for 100%.
  • Wait... wait... I thought pounds didn't matter.
  • Hey, hey, the gang's all here! I think this might be a first for everyone being together in an episode.
  • McCoy is just as smug as Kirk about things. Then again, so is Spock... Maybe Smugness is par for the Bridge. . . but not the women on the Bridge.
  • Screen can zoom out or in on objects. That is kind of cool.
  • United Earth Ship - Enterprise
  •  Commander Balok of the Fesarius. A flagship of the "First Federation".
  • OH! It was a Marker Bouy.
  • Huh. . . what do you do when you encounter others who do not fall under the FFF? If they are beyond the understanding of what their doing.
  • Shirts are looking a little more yellow, but still kind of a puke-yellow.
  • Chess vs. Poker
  • McCoy and Kirk love Poker. ha!
  • Women. . . serving coffee when you don't realize you need it.
  • Omg. . . watching people try to shake themselves is HILARIOUS!!! Effective, but McCoy wins the prize for Best Shake. (Even though, Spock looked a little masturbatory at one point.)
  • THE DUMMY looking Alien REALLY IS A DUMMY!  
  • TRANYA!!! 
  • It was a test? A test for Friendship? huh. I don't think it works like that.
  • But at least they found a place for Bailey.

Just a cool fact that learned. The little alien guy is Ron Howard's brother, Clint Howard, who was only 7 at Futurama, in the episode that draws directly on Star Trek, "Where No Fan Has Gone Before." In Venture Bros., episode "Assisted Suicide," Henchman No. 21 pours a drink for himself and Dr. Mrs the Monarch, calling it tranya. She responds with "I hope you relish it as much as I" before mentioning how creeped out she was by Ron Howard's little brother. Awesome!
the time. Kind of a cool bit of info. Also, this episode has ties to both Futurama and Venture Bros. The dummy alien is in an end still for
