Standard Orbit 68: A Genetic Connection by Drew Stewart

Mudd’s Passion (TAS) Commentary.

Continuing our talk on villains, we decided to cover the most recurring villain in TOS: Harry Mudd?  In this episode of Standard Orbit, Mike and Drew do a commentary for Mudd's animated adventure, "Mudd's Passion". Battle lines are drawn regarding what should be done with The Animated Series, as we wonder if it was the inspiration for a certain Trek film and flip out over the best cutaway in all of Star Trek.

Don't worry if you haven't seen this one, we try to keep you updated with what is happening.
