So my most recent guest, @abs_does_things was in an improv about #StarTrek before she’d ever watched the show. Nowadays, she gets a kick out of how many problems there were with the set! 😆 She’s new on Twitter too, so go give her some follows, if you would! 🖖🏻 https://t.co/YD4Q78Yrpg

@EnterpriseExtra Name an episode of Star Trek that you personally *love* that you would not recommend to a new fan to watch, at least right away. (Obviously they should watch it all at some point.)
