In this episode of Standard Orbit, Ken and Zach are joined by Melodic Trek's Brandon-Shea Mutala to dive deep into Star Trek's second pilot and and discuss what makes Where No Man Has Gone Before such a great launching point for the original series.

Where does this episode rank among the rest of TOS? Should it have been broadcast first instead of The Man Trap? What aesthetic changes were made to the series between Where No Man Has Gone Before and TOS proper, and were they for the better? All this and much more, plus our thoughts on Star Trek Remastered as well as Gary Lockwood and Sally Kellerman's panel at this year's Star Trek Las Vegas!
