For the past 500 years, the planet Eminiar VII and its nearest neighbor have been engaged in a war fought solely by computers, where those marked as casualties must report to disintegration chambers to have their deaths recorded. After ignoring repeated warnings to stay away, the Enterprise is marked as a target and classified as destroyed, which means the landing party will be held captive until the entire crew beams down to report to their deaths. Captain Kirk is about to take a mighty big gamble in his efforts to not only save the Enterprise, but to also stop this computerized war at all costs, even if it means potentially unleashing the real horrors of war unless peace can finally be achieved. "A Taste of Armageddon" has held up as a big, bold, briskly-paced and very entertaining "Star Trek" classic, but it has also come to resonate with much greater relevancy and even some controversy over the years -- and for very valid reasons, as our heated discussion on the latest "Enterprise Incidents" clearly demonstrates.
Special guest: Robert Meyer Burnett (Director: "Free Enterprise"; Producer: blu-ray features, "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and "Star Trek: Enterprise"; Host: "Robservations")
