This week in the Mission Log, two words: Spock’s Brain. Three more words: Remote control Spock. Oh yes. This is that time.

Cause U knew I would
brain and brain; what is brain!?!?!?!?!
Am I okay in treating this episode as a deliberate parody of bad Star Trek on behalf of the show itself?
Also, re Kirk’s reasoning (“If they took his brain out, they’ll be able to put it back in”) won’t make him popular in an obstetrics ward…
It may not have been intended that way at the time, but certainly the “camp” value lends itself to self-conscious parody. Either way it’s cool.
as to how they were able to control spock with six buttons, given the timeline we must assume these guys all grew up with advanced video games requiring a mastery of button combos.
Quick web check, over 64000 combinations if each button considered a number.
You know, it’s ok to say that sometimes conventional wisdom is 100% accurate.
