We all wish we could go back in time and help out our younger self—give advice, maybe tell our parents to be a bit more understanding. The more ambitious among us might pretend to be our own distant cousin, save our own life, and teach past us the Vulcan nerve pinch. That’s exactly what Spock does in the famous Star Trek: The Animated Series episode “Yesteryear.”
In this episode of Saturday Morning Trek, hosts Aaron Harvey and Joe Slepski engage in the show’s very first watch-along—which leaves us with more questions than it answers—including whether He-Man is actually Spock. So get your DVDs, Blu-rays, or Netflix ready, grab a bowl of your favorite cereal, and set out to Vulcan with us!
