Shuttle Pod 91 – Star Trek’s Legacy Of Social Commentary: TNG’s “The Drumhead”

Kayla, Jared, and returning host John Duchak discuss one of their favorite episodes of Star Trek — The Next Generation’s season 4 episode “The Drumhead” — in the context of how Star Trek has done social commentary. And, importantly, Kayla invites you to join her in never again being able to unsee the fact that the interrogation chair is actually a mediocre 1990’s office chair, complete with caster wheels, arm rests, and those little levers to adjust the height.

So, go ahead and sit down in an office chair while we probe into the ancestral origins of your great-great-great-granduncle to decide whether or not you are allowed to hang out with us.
