Top Ten Rejected Star Trek Episodes

29 Dec

December 29, 2014

These episodes were rejected for being too silly or farfetched for the original series.

1- The Enterprise is taken over by hippies- no wait, that happened.

2- Spock’s brain is stolen and- sorry, that was an episode.

3- A woman takes over Kirk’s body and he acts feminine and – oops, they did that one.

4- The Enterprise is taken over by children who worship an alien played by a fat divorce attorney. My bad, that aired too.

5- The crew meets space-Abraham Lincoln and sheesh, that was an episode too? And it also had space-Genghis Khan?

6- Kirk meets a man named Mudd who’s henpecked by a robot duplicate of his ex-wife… no, no that was done.

7- Nazi Planet. Seriously? They did a Nazi Planet?

8- Alien flowers turn Spock into a romantic poet. No way, really?

9- The ship is taken over by immobile breeding cotton balls, while everyone in the crew knows about a new form of wheat except Kirk. Hard to believe, but that’s a story.

10- McCoy sees a giant rabbit, Sulu fights a samurai, Don Juan woos a crewman, and Kirk beats up a bully in some sort of bizarre amusement park.  Wait, that’s not an episode of Scooby Doo? They did that on Star Trek? I give up.

This Week On Lying Awake With John Newly

2 Nov

November 2, 2014

And we’re back. It’s 2:45 and this hour we’ve been talking with Chet Humpty from the Oregon Association of Junior Transdimensionalists. Amazing stuff.

I want you all to know that the new Lying Awake newsletter is out, Lying In Print. In it, you can read about all of the hot topics we’ve covered on the show. In this issue, is ISIS behind Ebola? A pair of former NASA whistleblowers debate whether or not there are there fish on the moon. Could you be invisible to radar? Just imagine what you could do. My producer Fast Eddie asks “is your DNA safe?” and gets some surprising answers, and in my monthly column, Newly News, I reveal the ten secrets to using crystals to housebreak your chupacabra.

We’ll continue our conversation with Chet Humpty but first, here’s what’s coming up next week on Lying Awake.

On Sunday night, guest host Wink Martell will be joined by Sgt. Ramon Raquello, a pilot in the Bolivian air force, to discuss his fifteen year study of migrating salmon.

On Monday, I’ll be hosting a night of open lines. I’ll be taking calls on my special “ghost mother” hotline. If you have a ghost mother, call in and tell us your story.

Tuesday’s topic will be “I have Ebola but my wife doesn’t know it!” Call in if you’re hiding the Ebola virus from a loved one.

On Wednesday I’ll play “Name That Cough!” Every ten minutes, a past guest will call in and I’ll try to identify them from their unique coughs. Last time we played I couldn’t identify anybody! I’ll try to do better this time. My producer, Fast Eddie, wants me to assure you that their coughs have nothing to do with Tuesday night’s Ebola topic.

Thursday night I’ll have in the studio three old hippies from Woodstock to tell us what it was like back then.

Friday night is the return of our always popular Bigfoot Bingo. Download your very own Bigfoot Bingo card from the Lying Awake website and play along at home.

On Saturday, guest host Sgt. Ramon Raquello, a pilot in the Bolivian air force, will be here to talk to previous guest host Wink Martell.

You know, sometimes I wish I was a listener at home so I could just lay back in bed and listen to these great shows I’ve got coming up. But then I realize that there would be no one to do the shows! If only Strickland Von Weir was right. I had him on last week and he said that I have a doppelgänger who flips burgers at a Gooey Burger in Mobile Alabama. I could get him to do the show while I stay home and listen. Problem is, they’d have to find someone else to flip the burgers! Hmm, maybe a second doppelgänger? That would blow my mind.

We’ll be back right after this word from Nebulous Enterprises.
