Fred Steiner conducted these takes on Alexander Courage’s closing theme for Star Trek that featured an emphasis on the cello. No matter how many times I hear the studio noise and the producer’s count, this hits me.

(Plus! Those insane drums near the end of the second take!)

Too cool.

The Trouble with Tribbles written by David Gerrold. One of my favorite Trek episodes.

The scene in The Undiscovered Country where Spock initiates a forced mind meld with Valeris is still one of the most harrowing parts i’ve seen in any movie.

And Leonard Nimoy’s delivery of the line “She does not know” afterwards simply breaks my heart each time. You can tell how horrified he is at what he’s just done; how his anger at Valeris has compromised his composure and his morals. Especially when he slaps the phaser out of her hand in the sickbay. It’s a rare and powerful glimpse at Spock’s deep, strong and dangerous emotions - and just how much effort he puts into controlling them.

This is one of the most intense scenes in any of the Star Trek films. Just the delivery and camera work sells it.

This is the episode where M*A*S*H became M*A*S*H. Despite CBS’ kicking and screaming.

One of my favorite television shows, this is a defining moment in the series.
