Standard Orbit 293: Team Kang
Day Of The Dove.
This week on Standard Orbit hosts Ken Tripp, Zach Moore and Hayley Stoddart talk the third season episode Day of the Dove. An underrated and oft-overlooked episode, we discuss the glimpses it gives us into Klingon culture, how it puts the folly of prejudice on full display, the influences it may or may not have had on the movie era and much more!
Despite their reputation as the crew of Enterprise's ever-present adversaries, the Klingons actually appear in a mere seven episodes of The Original Series; Day of the Dove might be the definitive Klingon episode of TOS! Only a fool fights in a burning house, but a wise man boldly listens to Standard Orbit!
