Pheromones Defeat Death Ray!

Playwright David J. Loehr, fellow podcaster on The Incomparable network, discusses one of his favorite episodes of Star Trek ever: Bride of Chaotica! (Yes, the title has an exclamation point.)

David has a deep love of the 1930s serial adventure form, so it’s a treat to listen as he admires all the beautiful touches which elevate the episode well above a typical holodeck shenanigans story. When Captain Janeway must play Arachnia, Queen of the Spider People, to prevent a war between photonic aliens and Chaotica’s Army of Evil, it is a fun romp for the crew and the fans.
