What the heck is a “yeoman” anyway? After a brief history and etymology lesson, the crew turns the spotlight to everyone’s favorite Yeoman – Janice Rand (Grace Lee Whitney). From Roddenberry’s initial conception of the character to her no-so-subtle feelings for Captain Kirk to her friendship with Lt. Uhura, we discuss her best scenes, her hair, her departure, and her return in the films.
Hosts: Andi, Grace, Sue, Jarrah
