Gimme That Star Trek | Trek's Goofiest Episodes

It's been a while since I've gotten to talk about Star Trek on a podcast (RIP, Starmageddon), but Siskoid kindly invited me to his show to celebrate the sillier side of Trek. When I initially thought up the topic, I was thinking just about the original series (and we do spend most of our time there), but Siskoid wisely expanded the conversation to include the later shows, specifically asking if camp is something that should be part of every Star Trek iteration.

The goofiest episodes of the Original Series have a charm to them that you just can't say about the later spinoffs. Next Generation's early outings often felt like rejected Original Series scripts, but in an embarrassing way rather than fun.

I wonder if it's because TNG was trying to take itself SO seriously to prove itself a worthy successor of the beloved TOS.
