Trekathon 077: The Savage Curtain (TOS)

February 10th, 2010

Another somewhat infamous episode – the Star Trek episode where Lincoln fights Genghis Khan.

It wasn’t too bad – once you get past the silliness, there is a lot to like. For instance, instead of choosing only from pre-20th century historical figures some of the figures are from our future.

I was a little disturbed about the moral – the difference between good and evil is not in means, but in motives. Or, put another way, the ends justify the means. Of course, the mere idea of finding out about good versus evil through pitting people against each other in a fight is pretty silly too.

(Why has no one adapted this episode into a fighting game, though?)

77 down, 660 to go.
