Spocklight: A Star Trek Podcast

Episode 42: The City on the Edge of Forever (w/ Boyd Hilton from the Pilot TV Podcast)

July 26, 2021

Boyd Hilton of Heat, Empire and Pilot TV, returns to the podcast to discuss iconic Star Trek episode, The City on the Edge of Forever, and his love of The Original Series in general whilst calling James Dyer a bellend a lot.

We break down the episode discussing the success of its emotional core, Harlan Ellison’s original vision, how the story went on to inspire many other Sci-Fi stories to come as far and wide as Alex Garland's Devs and 90s Nicholas Lyndhurst Sitcom, Goodnight Sweetheart, and Paul gives us the lowdown on the scenes that ended up on the cutting room floor thanks to previous guest, Roger Lay Jr’s Roddenberry Vault.
