03. Spock’s Brain


‘Brain and brain! What is brain?’

Widely considered one of the low points of Star Trek: The Original Series, Spock’s Brain opened its third season with a creaky B-movie plot that made little use of its most popular character. But more than just an exercise in sci-fi campness, the result of multiple rewrites by committee, it revealed an unpleasant sexism in its treatment of its matriarchal society that flew in the face of the show’s progressive agenda. Nick Joy investigates what went wrong, why, and whether it might have been a different experience had series creator Gene Roddenberry still been on board.
