Tread Perilously — Star Trek TOS: Wolf In The Fold


Tread Perilously’s month of “haunted” television heads back to Star Trek with the original series episode “Wolf in the Fold.”

When the Enterprise arrives in orbit around Argelius II for “therapeutic shore leave,” the men aboard the ship beam down to enjoy the legendary pleasures and “generous” women the planet has to offer. Scotty, in particular, finds himself charmed by a belly dancer. But soon, she’s found dead and Scotty is spotted with the murder weapon. Such crimes are unheard of on Argelius II, but a tribunal of sorts is convened. Will Scotty prove to be a mad killer or is some other evil at work? And will it haunt the ship before too long?

Erik and Justin immediately identify Argelius II as a Gene Roddenberry sex planet. John De Lancie’s misadventures with the My Little Pony fandom comes up. Erik ends up reviewing the Jeff Goldblum episodes of Law & Order: Criminal Intent. Roddenberry’s screwed up sexual politics become an unavoidable topic. Justin cannot get past the fact guest actor John Fiedler is also the voice of Piglet. Erik once again sings the praises of Majel Barrett’s computer voice and the pair discover a concept more ridiculous than Jack the Ripper possessing the Enterprise.
