    Balance of Terror is a nice title but doesn't go with the events of the episode, imo

    Poking the Bear or Testing the Waters might be a better title

    "Savage Curtain" is another good example of a name that kinda makes sense if you really think about it, but still feels pretty random.

    Don't get me wrong. I love the titles of the episodes and agree they give things a literary quality. It actually is one of the best Easter eggs in Discovery:

    I may be wrong, but I'm guessing this was a holdover from Bryan Fuller.

    Or... "Wait... maybe the racist is right. The Romulan Commander is Spock's dad!"

    How many folks called it Who Mourns for ADONIS rather than Adonias?

    [raises hand]
    If I had only spent a tenth of the time studying Physics that I spent learning Star Wars and Baseball trivia, I would have won the Nobel Prize.

    I still say ADONIS to this day

    Also is it Charlie X as in the letter ? … or X as in Roman numerals "10" ?

    Also, to this day I've never heard the word Catspaw used in anything other than Star Trek

    I never understood the "Catspaw" title until many years later and only recently decided it referred to Korob and not Kirk.

    That bookshelf is lovely.

    The rock creatures name was Yarnek. I would love to do a custom of him.

    The one where Kirk body swaps with the female doctor ex girlfriend was called, (Turnabout Intruder), the last episode of the series.

    The Gary Seven episode was called, (Assignment Earth)

    Turnabout Intruder is by far the worst episode of the entire run. I can't even sit through that one
