Episode 15: Shore Leave 

Released Sept. 8, 1966
Bri’s Overall Rating (3/5)

Overall - 3 out of 5

Aliens (?/5)

Aliens - 0 out of 5

Yet again, I’m finding myself bored with all the humans in outer space.

Costumes (5/5)

Costumes - 5 out of 5

This episode is hysterical! It has a Furry!!!!  They continue their obsession with silver and with flowy dresses. That Hollywood historical Princess get-up.  A samurai.  A knight. The bunny outfits at the end. OMG someone PLEASE cosplay that.


Fight Choreography (5/5)

Fight - 5 out of 5

For the EPIC fight between Kirk and Finnegan.


Bechdel Test (1/3)

Bechdel - 1 out of 3

There are plenty of ladies in this episode, both real and imagined. But somehow none of them manage to utter a single word to one another. Even when they’re standing right next to each other in matching Vegas Girl outfits.

Episode 16: The Galileo Seven

Released Sept. 15, 1966

Bri’s Rating (3/5)

Overall - 3 out of 5

Aliens (3/5)

Aliens - 2 out of 5

We finally get some giant ape people for a change! Too bad they spent most of the episode off screen. Womp womp.


Costumes (1/5)

Costumes - 1 out of 5

Uniforms, uniforms and more uniforms.

Fight Choreography (1/5)

Fight - 1 out of 5

For the spear in the back.


Bechdel (1/3)

Bechdel - 1 out of 3

It’s the same sad story. Multiple ladies in the episode, but they never speak to one another. Although, in their defense, one was on the Enterprise while the other was stranded on a planet.
