Episode A.8: The Magicks of Megas-Tu

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

Oh man... this is like an episode of some Sid & Marty Krofft show on steroids. As psychedelic kid's Saturday morning entertainment went, H.R. Pufnstuf had nothing on this episode.

Things I did not have space to show:

This episode's writer, Larry Brody, originally intended the Enterprise crew to meet God, and Gene Roddenberry liked the idea. However, NBC executives nixed the plan, saying you couldn't show God as a character on a kid's TV show. So they used the Devil instead. True story. Oh, and Asmodeus too, for good measure.
