You know, this episode is MUCH more normal than the previous two. Sure, Uhura's wearing command gold and the main plot revolves around encountering strange geometric solids in space, but they have Bones now. Having him replace that random doctor from last time goes a long way towards making this feel like a proper Star Trek episode.

I say again, "Let us drink trwanya."
This episode is a PRIME example of what MST3K's crow referred to as "No moral theatre."
Not that I'm disagreeing with you, given that the WRITING being normal isn't what you were talking about, and rather the set, world, and canon! stuff.
Besides, I'm just some random guy on the internet. What do I know?
Oh, and I can't describe how happy I am that this comic updates weekdays - at least I think it does, is there a posted update schedule? - because this comic is awesome.

I will say that it doesn't work very well as a story. I can't tell you what the point of it is, or why they suddenly trust the alien at the end. But at the same time, it does do a fair amount to establish the core characters, especially Kirk. I think all the main crewmen other than maybe Scotty and Uhura get a few lines or actions that are significant. Even Yeoman Rand gets her moment. In that sense, it's at least useful as an introduction to the crew and their captain.

And yes, this comic updates every weekday. Usually. I'll post a notice if anything happens to prevent an update. I really should add an about section with this information...

Terrence, I'm sure no-one could mistake you for those things. Don't worry about it.
