Was it intentional?

Star Trek Continues continues to brings us episodes that seem like they must have been found in a time capsule buried in one of the Desilu studios parking lots. Their mimicry of the original series is always wonderfully reminiscent of the franchise's seminal effort. The production quality is always impressive for an amateur effort from the sets and props to character portrayals, and Dr. McKenna is always an interesting retrofit. But we mustn't forget that while the original series was the beginning of so many memorable inspirations for convention goers and cos-players, it had its fair share of lemons. Some of you might recall Spock's Brain or The Way to Eden, but here I'm thinking more about episodes like The Naked Time, The Immunity Syndrome, or especially Obsession. These are episodes that are not necessarily bad, but light on the science fiction and heavy when it comes to the characters' histories and their vulnerabilities. Many of these episodes have nothing to do with space ships or the future. They could take place in just about any prime-time television drama. When first watching The White Iris, I kept thinking that STC has finally jumped the space shark, but then I remembered that STC has always imitated and honored the original series, and I believe that the writers and director behind this episode wanted to include an story showing that Kirk is not perfect. He is a man among men, but he is just a man. And they wanted to show this in a way that makes you wonder, are aliens behind Kirk's symptoms? Is Kirk simply ill? Will a magical remedy only found in the future cure him? But most of all, in the same way that women's uniforms in the future will be inspired by the miniskirts of the late sixties, officers warranted with the protection of the all of the people on a planet will use a password similar to one that my grandmother uses for her iPad. Keep it coming STC!
