Trek Thursday: Court Martial

#58: Court Martial

In case you forgot: Kirk is on trial for the death of one of his crewmen owing to gross negligence (Starfleet suddenly cares about all those redshirts now?). THE COMPUTER has damning evidence against him, but the man Kirk stands accused of killing is still alive and has tampered with the memory banks in attempt to destroy Kirk's career and exact his revenge.

This week, on Perry Mason in Space...

That's all this episode is, really, and if you like procedurals then this episode gets a lot better. If you don't, though, you're SOL. The dated worries over man versus machines might have struck a chord with contemporary audiences, but it's not a theme that ages well.
