Your favorite sci-fi series probably has a ton of cool scary monsters and aliumbs, and sure, most of them are evil incarnate, but what about the misunderstood ones? The monsters that just need a little human compassion?

For Stella Cheeks, it's the Horta in the Star Trek TOS episode "The Devil In The Dark" and for Erin Cline, it's The Great Mutato in the X-Files episode "The Post-Modern Prometheus". 

How monstrous can these creatures get before they test our empathy? Does the fear of judgment from society justify their actions? Anyone else really craving an omelet? PAIN!


About the podcast:

Erin Cline and Stella Cheeks have been friends for over a decade but have never seen each other's favorite TV show. Seeking to rectify that grievous error (seriously, they used to live together), X-Treks was born! Each week the duo choose one episode from Star Trek: The Original Series and one episode from The X-Files that fits a previously chosen cinematic theme, watch them together, and share their feelings! Alongside producer Bobby Hoffman, they discuss their first impressions, how the episodes fit into the larger fan lore, and fascinating behind the scenes facts.
