TOS and Planet of the Apes: How could one be the other?
In this episode of Standard Orbit: Nic Anastassiou, Amy Nelson and Ken Tripp talk about the idea of taking two great franchises who came into being in the same time-frame and meshing the two very different views of the future.
As fans of both franchises and fans of both Roddenberry and Serling; could an episode of the original series be constructed to incorporate the Planet of the Apes. Nic, Amy, and Ken come up with creative scenarios that explore combining the elements. Would it be an alien putting our crew in a different universe? Could it be a timeline disconnect? Could be a warning of complacency or a piece of what made Earth a utopia that fell apart? Enjoy this creative episode of Standard Orbit!
