Who Mourns for Adonais?
How many times has this happened to you? You drive past a town, find that it has a curious lack of residents, and then your car gets grabbed by a giant hand? Well, it happened to the Enterprise—only in space. Kirk never expected a trip to Pollux IV to result in a close encounter with Greek mythology, but when Apollo threw on his toga Jim knew he meant business. In this episode of Trek News & Views Colin is joined by Christopher Jones and Kate Walsh to discuss the classic TOS episode “Who Mourns for Adonais?” Along the way we learn how to chat someone up over coffee, how Starfleet missed the boat in uniform design, and of course the religious connotations of this episode.
