I'm curious -- what made you choose that particular line-up?
Mostly I've been focusing on "bottle shows" that are set almost entirely aboard the Enterprise, so I can concentrate on the sets and decor and the dynamics on the bridge. That three out of the four also showcased Leonard Nimoy was a happy accident.
("Elaan" is the exception there, since that's a pretty Kirk-centric episode.)
Plomic soup bowl throw world record!
TOS: Amok Time, on MeTV.
Part of their Leonard Nimoy tribute.
TOS: The Cage
Geordi falling for a hologram he himself created. Sounds like Pygmalion revisited.
Amok Time (TOS Blu-ray)
Initiations - Voy
Nog, guest starring on Voyager, sort of.
Unification part II (TNG Blu-ray)
"The Cage" (extended version).
How long is the extended version?
Not sure. That's just how it's labeled on the DVD.
I haven't compared it against the other version.
I believe the original, uncut version of "The Cage" ran 63 minutes before later TV syndication edits chopped the pilot down a bit, so perhaps that's the official running time of the "extended version" or something close to it.
I think the "extended version" refers to the color/B&W version with introduction by Gene Roddenberry.
Currently watching Plato's Stepchildren (TOS Blu-ray). At least Spock gets to sing...
The version of "The Cage" that I have, runs 63 minutes. So I guess I already have the extended/uncut version.
I am sorry to say that but "Plato's Stepchildren" is the most awful TOS episode that I have ever seen, it even beats "Spock's Brain", IMO.
All Our Yesterdays (TOS Blu-ray)
The atavachron was a clever term for once, from the Latin atavus (ancestor) and the Greek chronos (time).
Separate names with a comma.
