Symptom 100: The Doomsday Machine

100 Episodes in. Thank you to anyone who has listened to this podcast. For our 100th episode what better than a review of one of the best episodes of the original Star Trek - The Doomsday Machine. This one has it all, a message about the socio-political climate of the 1960’s, action, space combat, great acting by the primary cast and the guest stars and an early treatment of post traumatic stress disorder. Sure, in the 1960’s they didn’t fully understand and that rings through but today, more than 50 years later, the episode works as a discussion on the effects of trauma on the human psyche. This episode holds up well over the test of time, in terms of story, acting and visually. Doomsday Machine - simply an example of Star Trek at it very best.
