      Star Trek: The Corbomite Maneuver is one of my all time favorite Star Trek episodes of any of the series. It’s the essence of what Star Trek, and space exploration, is all about. That’s why it’s so wonderful.

      Though this show aired in November of its first season in 1966, it’s obvious that it was a show filmed much earlier. In fact, it’s my understanding that this was

      the third show filmed, behind the original pilot and then the second pilot. You can tell from the Star Fleet uniforms (the collars are a dead give away), Uhura wearing yellow instead of red, Leonard Nimoy’s very static and forced delivery on his lines when he was giving orders (he shouts them out and it’s very unnatural), and other little things like that.

      It is a great introduction of Dr.

      • McCoy (DeForest Kelley) in that he’s in the opening scene with Kirk trying to give Kirk a physical. There’s just so much that becomes iconic from this scene.

        We get to see Kirk at his best in this show, doing what was his first big time bluff. This is the Kirk the Star Trek legend is made of. I just tingle with joy from thinking about it.

        There’s a wonderful Kirk/McCoy scene in Kirk’s quarters, and we get what is really the first Kirk/Yeoman Rand scene. It’s brilliant.

        Anthony Call guest stars as a sometimes nervous navigator who reminds Kirk of himself. He ultimately plays a key role in the story’s resolution. Clint Howard also has a pivotal role as Balok.

        There’s really nothing wrong that matters about this outing. It’s superb and I watch it often.

    • Don't Be Nice. Be Helpful.
