It's been quite a while since I've posted one of these, so it's high time I remedied that.
I've been an avid Star Trek fan for many decades. I've seen every episode countless times, I've got tons of reference and behind-the-scenes books, action figures, model ships, trading cards-- you name it, I've got it. With that said, even I have to admit that certain episodes could get a little silly now and then, especially when viewed out of context.
So sit back and enjoy this totally Out Of Context Star Trek Moment.
As a freshmen at the Academy, James T. Kirk dreamed of flying through space, visiting far off planets and meeting strange new life forms. And then given them horsey rides.
Yep, that's our beloved Captain being ridden by a little person in Grecian garb.
This scene is from the third season episode Plato's Stepchildren, which is an absolute goldmine of out of bizarre out of context moments.
When I was a kid my dad always thought Star Trek was stupid. I'd try and tell him he was wrong and it was a really cool show and he needed to give it a chance. I'd finally convince him to sit down and watch it with me, and then an episode like this one would come on.
Let's enjoy a couple more views of Captain Kirk being ridden, shall we?
