A kind take on the Original Star Trek Series

Plenty of laugh out loud moments as we are invited to join Chris and Rachel in their journey through the original series. A kind, funny, silly, yet very intelligent exploration.

Don’t bother...

Deeply unfunny, indulgent even rather tedious. Shame, as I wanted to like this and love Chris’s work on the HPL podcast. If you actually like Star Trek please give this a BIG MISS.

Bro Justin ,

Go Rachel & Chris!

This podcast is brilliant, funny and quirky. And respectful of Trek at the same time. You two are, erm, awesome together.
