It’s Tribbles. I don’t think I need to say much more than that.



Costumes (3/5)

Costumes - 3 out of 5



The boys get to have some fun in this one. I am happy for that. I especially like the Tribble dealer’s pockets.



Fight Choreography (5/5)

Fight - 5 out of 5



One of the all time classic fights of Star Trek: TOS. Scottie and boys defending The Enterprise’s honor. CLASSIC!



Bechdel Test (2/5)

Bechdel - 2 out of 3



Multiple ladies, none get to chat and I’m getting really tired of typing the same thing every week…

Episode 45: The Gamesters of Triskelion

Released Jan. 5th, 1968


Bri’s Overall Rating (4/5)

Overall - 4 out of 5




Aliens (5/5)

Aliens - 5 out of 5

There are SO MANY ALIENS in this episode – and they get a lot of screen time and even dialogue. It’s really hard for me to pick which is my favorite – is it the Mother Monster? The greenish lady that hits on Chekov? The Boar-man? Or maybe the giant jar of brains? I just can’t decide.



Costumes (4/5)

Costumes - 4 out of 5



Once again with the silver. The women’s outfits are very Barbarella.



Fight Choreography (5/5)

Fight - 5 out of 5



YES!!! More classic Star Trek fights! My favorite part part is when Kirk is strangling Kloog but not really. You can totally see that the leather strap is not tight.



Bechdel Test (2/5)

Bechdel - 2 out of 3
