Another season of Star Trek done! I quite liked season two. There was a good mix of really good episodes, good episodes, okay episodes, and down right bad episodes.

Things I never knew or noticed before until now:

- The hand phasers actually slot into the top of the phaser pistols. If you look at an actual phaser, you can see that the top bit is a hand phaser. I never noticed that before. It's a cool little detail that they didn't need to have, but someone came up with it anyway.

- Each department has its own unique insignia. Command has the black star in the middle, sciences has the overlapping circles, and engineering has a swirly thing. It's a detail that's lost in the later shows, but it's another example of having extra detail where you necessarily don't need any.

- Scotty is second in command after Spock. TOS featured Kirk, Spock, and Bones so heavily, that you kind of assume that Bones is in the chain of command, but nope, it's Scotty who takes over when Kirk and Spock are both off of the ship.

Review of Star Trek season two, episodes 15-26 (spoilers) )

All right, third season next. I'm going to put this one off for a bit since the new TV season is starting soon. Also, two words. "Spock's Brain".
