Episode #53: The Ultimate Computer
In this episode, Dr. Richard Daystrom creates... I'm not sure what to call it, a real good computer. Ida know, it was, like, an awesome computer. That's the best way to describe it.
The test was to see if this incredible computer could run the Enterprise by itself. Kirk was left with only 20 crewman total. Lt. Leslie, of course, made the cut.
Does having Leslie around come in handy? Does the Pope wear a funny hat? Does a bear shit in the woods?
When Daystrom the Genius turns out to be a tad bonkers, Leslie is one of the guys called in to get the crazy bastard off the bridge.
Of course this supreme computer was flawed and the transcendant machine had to be put down. You can't run a starship with a preeminent computer, no matter how incomparable that computer is. A starship runs on hard work and loyalty. I think ultimately, that is the lesson.
