You can listen to the full episode HERE, or you can just hear our comments regarding this single issue below:

 

For the first time since Star Trek #1, a female crewmember has made it off the ship. Here Uhura is being hit on by George Washington. And right in front of his wife, no less!

 

ST-09-002

 

Talk about gender neutrality, here Uhura is being beaten by her former admirer. This is a surprise screen for a 1970’s comic aimed at kids.

ST-09-005

 

Another example of Star Trek predicting future: Who would have guessed in 1971 that Anton York would be sweeping the nation in his bid in 2016? Amazing!

ST-09-003

Missed opportunity: Should have had Teddy Roosevelt brandishing a club and saying “speak softly, and carry a big stick“. Still, Lincoln, Washington, and Henry VIII is still worth it.
