Yesteryear (TAS S1 E02)

The Joy of Trek

May 7 2024 • 1 hr 23 mins

Yesteryear (Star Trek: The Animated Series, S1 E02) was recommended by Royce Day (pronouced like Rolls Royce) he/him, who said: Yesteryear is probably the most well known episodes of ST:TAS, not only because it gives us a direct look at Spock's awful childhood (and Sarek's awful parenting), but because in 25 minutes it gives us a surprisingly dramatic and emotionally deep story, which was unusual for a Saturday morning cartoon from that era. As a geeky, socially awkward kid myself, it hit me hard when I saw it as a child, and it still speaks to me today.

Yesteryear first aired on September 15, 1973, written by D. C. Fontana, and directed by Hal Sutherland

The Joy of Trek is hosted by Khaki & Kay, with editing & production by Chief Engineer Greg and music by Fox Amoore (Bandcamp | Bluesky)
