Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast

Standard Orbit 272: Less Creative Is The Goal

Alternate TOS Episode Titles.

The Original Series is well known for it's flowery, cultured and sometimes dare we say pretentious episode titles, so this week on Standard Orbit hosts Ken Tripp and Zach Moore thought it would be fun to do a run down of the first season's episode titles and reimagine them as if they were titled at the height the "Berman" era of Star Trek when the music was wallpaper and the titles were too. 

What are our favorite episode titles of season one? Which titles would already fit perfectly into the "Berman" era among such classic titles like The Void, The Chute, The Catwalk, etc. Does Zach change the conditions of the test one too many times? All this and more in this week's Standard Orbit, boldly listen!
