I, Mudd (TOS S2 E12)

Published on: 19th March, 2024

I, Mudd (Star Trek: The Original Series, S2 E12) was recommended by Pico, he/him, who said: TOS's intentionally zany moments are often a blast, and this one's chock full of them. Watching the crew dance/act absurd to confuse the androids is one of my favorite moments in the entire series.

I, Mudd first aired on November 3, 1967, written by Stephen Kandel, and directed by Marc Daniels

The Joy of Trek is hosted by Khaki & Kay, with editing & production by Chief Engineer Greg and music by Fox Amoore (Bandcamp | Bluesky)

About the Podcast

The Joy of Trek
Every Star Trek story is somebody's favorite, and that might as well be us!
Two lifelong besties (and their trusty engineer) adventure through the vast constellations of Star Trek's decades on TV, especially the lesser-loved stories.

But instead of bitching about why they’re bad, we’re going to find the joy in each of them, because everybody loves the great episodes, but it takes dedication, insight, and hard-working fools to love the clunkers too.

And by Jove, we are those fools!

Positive, inclusive and optimistic (though not uncritical!) we try to find the brilliance even in the least-loved episodes of our favorite TV shows!
