17 to 01: Errand of Mercy

Everyone loves Kor, right? I mean, not as a person (he is a terrible person), but as a character who enjoys being the bad guy and has his own ethos. One of the themes that I'm blatantly stealing from The Prisoner is the notion that state actors have more in common with one another than the populations they're empowered to protect. It's pretty interesting, but the tendency for narratives to focus on those actors makes those themes rare.

You can debate captains, but can we agree that Kirk is probably the worst when it comes to a captain's diplomatic role?

17 to 01 is available on iTunes. It updates Thursdays at 01:00 AM CT and Friday nights at 8:30 PM ET / 9:30 CT. We're also, amazingly, on Stitcher.
