Hollywood, CA-- A new episode from the original 'Star Trek' series has turned up in a vault in Hollywood. It's actually a partial episode--and very controversial. Something happened in the middle of filming, and the show never made it to TV. The Faux Network will air the episode this Sunday night.
Director Gene Roddenberry penned and directed the episode, which was to close the program's second season in 1968. Roddenberry was intrigued with nudity in the play "Hair", and appearing on Broadway at the time. The famed director wanted 'Star Trek' to break the taboo against nudity on television.
Roddenberry had the Enterprise crew discover a very advanced race of robots living in deep space. The robots do not understand the purpose of clothes, and they ask Captain Kirk to explain the concept. Kirk explains that people wear clothes to be modest. The robots do not comprehend and shoot a ray gun at the Enterprise that immediately strips everyone aboard naked!
There are several discrete shots of Lieutenant Uhuru flashing her breasts while using her communicator. Both Sulu and Chekov are shown nude from the waist up, sitting at their consoles. Mr. Sulu is shown grinning with delight when Capt. Kirk walks by completely naked.
The episode went haywire after Mr. Spock appears naked on the bridge. Vulcans are cursed with very small penises that are almost microscopic. Gales of laughter break out on the bridge, as everyone points at Mr. Spock's tiny organ.
"I see no reason to laugh. I never have sex, so logically, I don't need a large penis." states Mr. Spock.
Gene Roddenberry stopped filming at that point, and the episode was hidden away until today. Look for it this Sunday on Faux TV!
