Trek Geeks #186: The Gamesters of Triskelion


What better way to kick off the week of STLV than to focus on some high stakes gambling!

This week we look at the classic TOS episode, The Gamesters of Triskelion! Drill Thralls, pain collars, Providers, and lots of wagering highlight this second season installment. It’s an episode we’ve been watching as kids, but in this episode of The Biggest Little Show, we’ll examine what makes this episode classic, flaws and all.
