  • High Times aboard USS Enterprise!

    Here's the story in a few words: Starship Enterprise is hijacked to the planet Eden by interstellar hippies! Far out, man! There's Dr. Sevrin, who's burned out after taking a few too many acid trips. There's Tongo Radd, the would-be psychedelic guitarist, then there's the chick who dumped Chekov years earlier. And there's Adam, who eats the apple on arrival on Eden and dies, presumably after gaining the knowledge of good and evil.

    One of the better scenes: The rec room jam session with the hippies and Mr. Spock, with his weird little Vulcan harp. Spock really wails!

    So flash back to one of the funnier Star Trek episodes. Caution: if you do a couple of bong hits before viewing, the stiff man will put your mind in jail! His judge will clap the gavel and say, No Bail!
