I was going to post a link to where it could be watched at CBS.com....but it's not there...at least, I can't see it (which means little...I can be incredibly oblivious)....

Is it possible it was just so awful CBS wouldn't waste the bandwidth?

Geeze I guess CBS thinks that Star Trek is useless, (Sounds a little like Paramount)

And to watch it you have to be from the US anyway. There are tricks though to also get to see it when not located in the states, but I do not know their legal status.

oh, duh...see? I said it meant little that I couldn't see it...I have hideous vision...really, I shouldn't be allowed out in public....

Botany Bay, are you kidding me? I had no idea they managed to restict that to US viewers...I've watched loads of video on UK sites (including a bunch of Star Treks...which I only watched for the novelty of watching in the micro format the site used...it was like watching them on a matchbox or something).

I've always felt that the episodes where a planet's culture mimiced some other era of Earth were the weakest ones. It just strains credibility. Roman planet, planet of Native Americans, planet of Nazis, planet of yanks and commies, planet of gangsters... ick.

The only writer who ever pulled that sort of stuff off was the guy who came up with the little teddy bear people who would emulate the societies found in ancient earth books... "The Earthman's Burden" was the first book about them, although I'm blanking on what they were called, or who wrote them. Was it H. Beam Piper? No, wait, he was "Little Fuzzy" not the same thing at all....

Well in defense of the "planet of Native Americans", the were supposedly moved from Earth by some advanced species hundreds of years before...I believe they were called the Preservers or something to that effect. "The Planet of Nazis" was a direct result of violation of the Prime Directive by John Gill. The Planet of Gangsters were a race that just got their culture from a book left behind by an earth ship that had visited.

The others though, were a bit far fetched. There was also one other planet (with the exact same continents as Earth) that had experimented with extending life and left nothing but children behind (Miri). Now THAT got a bit crazy.

Yeah, I don't think you can pin that label on Patterns of Force or A Piece of the Action. The plot for both was "extreme violation of The Prime Directive"... "Preservers" is correct for the higher species who rescued the Native Americans (apparently realizing they were doomed here).

The Miri planet at least had the good grace to be set in Mayberry....which was so sublimely unreal that it sort of makes up for the sheer stupidity of the concept.

I think they are all pretty far fetched... but then, a universe populated by more that one humanoid race is pretty much straining the "belief-o-meter" anyway.
