Re: Last Star Trek Episode You Watched

Good episodes, one and all. At that point in 1966 the producers and the network were still having fun at Spock's expense and making reference to his "Satanic" appearance, something hinted at even in NBC promotional materials printed and distributed at the time of the show's premiere.

It's an early growth pang of the series more than anything else, I suppose. In hindsight it doesn't sound flattering considering that canonically humans have known Vulcans for a smidge over 200 years at that point so their appearance shouldn't be so controversial or poke-worthy, but 1966 America wasn't used to a lead television character looking like that.
We lived through another's a good excuse to celebrate.
