Week Three

Fell behind this week as well. Wasn't expecting to have four hockey games schedules in the same week which ate up most of my viewing time. I was able to get through 7 episodes this week. This weekend was a long weekend which will give me some time to catch up but I am around 20 episodes behind schedule so I am going to have to do a few weekend marathons to get back on track.

My favorite episode was Balance of Terror. It was a cat and mouse game played between the Enterprise and a cloaked Romulan Bird of Prey. Some compare it to the film The Enemy Below which is a similar story about an American destroyer that was tracking a German U-boat. While a U-boat is able to mask itself by being quiet under the vastness of the sea, the Romulans have a cloaking device that when they are not moving is almost completely undetectable.

This week no one died which keeps the Red Shirts still behind in the tally.

I started playing Star Trek the 25th Anniversary, a point and click adventure game in the same vein as Kings Quest. I played for three hours and finished two of the seven chapters. The game is clunky due to it's age but overall still was fun. I recorded the session but part of it didn't come through very well. At the end of the game I will try to post the video to youtube.
