Kirk vs. Computers.
One of Captain Kirk's many talents is his ability to talk computers into self-destructing. In this episode of Standard Orbit Mike and Drew take a look at three such instances. We discuss how he got a little help from Spock in “The Return of the Archons,” how he mastered the skill in “The Changeling,” and how he just got lucky in “The Ultimate Computer.” We also ponder whether or not Clint Eastwood is a Trekkie.
