Requiem for Methuselah


Requiem for Methuselah

Kirk’s in love, which is nothing new. For an added twist, this week he’s in love with a robot. A robot built by someone who is seemingly immortal. Things get sticky, though, when we find out that he’s in love with his robot too. Also, everyone on the Enterprise is sick. They need medicine or they will die. This is not a requiem for them, though. This week, we’re Requiem for Methuselah in the Mission Log.

    If you want more from Flint – check out the Cold Equations book trilogy
    (might want to read the Destiny trilogy first – a: it’s good, b: Cold Equations might spoil a fairly big event that occurs in Destiny)

    I wonder if Spock’s “forget” moment was related to his “remember” moment in The Wrath of Khan. More importantly, I wonder if the writers of STTWOK were thinking of this episode for that scene.

    • They do seem related. Haven’t read anywhere that it was that specific, but it’s probably not a leap to think that there was some inspiration from that scene.

    Given Flint’s long, long history of faking his death and moving on, you really have to wonder how any of the Enterprise crew could just accept any news about him dying now….

    You see, I assumed that all those previously unknown works of art by historical masters were possibly recent creations of Flint’s, not that he necessarily saved them from the time when he was that person.

    At 14:00 I had the though that M-4 was a Kirk-blocker.

    I didn’t think of this while watching the episode, but listening to the podcast I kept thinking of parallels to the recent (and excellent) movie Ex Machina. Also, I love the movie Man From Earth. For so many reasons it shouldn’t work, yet every few years I put it in.

    What makes this more like a season 1 or 2 is that the episode doesn’t simply end at the character reveal, it goes on after a bit. And, it actually drives some action and a bit of plot.
