Star Trek and Sacrifice

I used to blog about the spiritual side of this aging television classic; how themes of sacrifice and resurrection and redemption were common to it.

And I would be remiss in my duties as a closet fan if I didn’t point you to what might be one of the best episodes of the classic television series that you’ve probably never seen:

World Enough and Time

You probably haven’t seen it because it is only a week old.

My guess is that some of the acting will impress you; the production values with floor you; and the script may very well leave you shattered.

Grab a warp-speed Internet connection and hold on to your white-with-black-pleather Burke chair.

As Scotty says, “It gets bumpy from here.”

P.S., 9/15 – The old link has been updated to an operational one.

  1. Keith, whenever I’ve see any kind of “Star Trek” I’ve <>ALWAYS<> turned the channel. I have <>NEVER<> watched “Star Trek” anything… Until this afternoon…And I think I’m a lil embarassed to say that I did, indeed, spend an hour of my life, here, in front of this computer, watching this episode…Because after countless hours spent reading your blog this past year or so, I’ve come to trust that I will be blessed by whatever you choose to share with us…And I have yet to be disappointed…Sacrifice and Resurrection and Redemption, indeed!!! Makes me anticipate the gathering with brothers and sisters tomorrow to celebrate these very gifts! Until then…<>“Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory for ever and ever.”<>

  2. “Whenever I’ve <>SEEN<> any kind of ‘Star Trek'”……did I mention that I HATE typos??? Man! One over here and one on Alan’s page…two in the same day! Saturday must’ve just been an off day for me!

  3. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to the <>New Voyages<> site in the past six months to download “WE&T” only to find it unavailable. I hadn’t looked in a couple of weeks. Glad to see it’s now up and out. Thanks. Also, glad to find you’re also a <>New Voyages<> fan. Also, I’m excited to hear “WE&T” has been worth all the hype.

  4. What a GREAT find! The quality of WEAT is FAR ahead of the other episodes I have watched so far. Thanks so much for making me aware of this.

  5. Well I’ve seen it now, and it was certainly worth the wait. “WE&T” was as good if not better than any episose in <>TOS<>. Peace.
