Standard Orbit 177: Revenge Is A Dish Best Served Cold Revenge Stories. As the old Klingon proverb goes, "Revenge is a dish best served cold." When it comes to Star Trek, it seems revenge is a dish best served again and again. It's a story trope the that franchise frequently revisits for better or for worse; sometimes you get The Wrath of Khan, sometimes you get Turnabout Intruder. In this episode of Standard Orbit, hosts Ken Tripp and Zach Moore examine the many instances where revenge drives the narrative of TOS episodes, movies and reboots, which motivations are more relatable than others, and what Star Trek tries to teach us through these extreme examples of obsession and vengeance.
