    – Love the intro on this one. “I AM KEN RAY”

    – Really looking forward to hearing you guys talking about Kirk talking another computer to death.

    – Ken, who would you say is currently “the most erotic scientist” in history?

    – I was wondering why Uhura speaks “English” when they have a Universal Translator. Do they not have the Universal Translator at this point? If they do, she should actually be speaking Swahili the whole time.

    – Where DID Nomad get so much power?? They never really explained. One probe observes, the other deals with soil samples, so combined they… have a superweapon that equals 90 photon torpedoes in strength? Why?

    – “Mirror, Mirror” is one of the most important TOS episodes, I think. I’m pretty excited about it.

    Uhura speaks Swahili in that scene because Nichelle Nichols pushed for it. I understand what you guys are saying that the Starfleet nurse probably wouldn’t have taught her Swahili when everyone speaks English, but Uhura was from Africa and Nichelle argued that it would be the language she would revert to if her mind was erased.

    She is shown to pick up languages quickly, and it wouldn’t be completely out of Starfleet/Federation ideals to teach the ‘first’ language first. I would like to think she mastered Swahili and passed the test the day before and the Nurse was teaching her English that day. 🙂
