IDW released Harlan Ellison’s second draft of his script that became the episode City on the Edge of Forever from the original Star Trek television series. Join Dylan and John as they discuss the comic adaptation of Harlan’s original vision for the story and how it compares to the episode we saw on TV back in the 60s. What parts of the original story did you like better than what we saw on TV? What did you think the TV show did better? Let us know your thoughts so we can share them on a future episode.
