Standard Orbit 87: The MIRROR Universe / by Trek fm

The Tholian Web Commentary.

The final part of our Mirror Universe series starts at the end. Or is it the beginning? Either way, the Enterprise is trapped in Tholian space and Kirk is stuck in a mirror. In this episode of Standard Orbit, Mike and Drew do a commentary for the classic episode "The Tholian Web". We bring up questionable editing choices, bad effects, an infinite number of Kirk recordings, and Tholian obsession with sports. Did we spot Bashir’s great-great-grandfather toward the end there? Also, Mike teaches Drew old moonshine techniques and Drew tells Mike about adding digital lobsters to Annie Hall.
