Mission Log is a Roddenberry Entertainment podcast with the sole purpose of exploring the Star Trek universe one episode at a time. That’s right, this podcast will cover six different series and 30 seasons of television by journeying into every one of the 726 episodes with a single mission: to explore, debate and discuss one of the largest science fiction phenomena of all time, Star Trek.
Starting with The Original Series’ initial pilot and continuing chronologically until we reach the last episode of Star Trek: Enterprise, each week our hosts will tackle a single episode, delving into the most historical and hysterical science fiction that Star Trek has to offer. Along with a variety of guests and interviews, Mission Log will attempt to reach Star Trek’s ethical subtext, understand it’s complex metaphors and finally figure out what was the trouble with those tribbles.
Explore strange new details. Seek out new perspectives; deeper understandings. Boldly go where so many of us love to go, again and again. Join us for Mission Log!

Regardless of your thoughts on Star Trek, this is always a conversation worth listening to.
It's a good show
I have been listenining to Mission Log since episode one and I have listened to the TOS episodes many times over. Until a while ago, my rating would have been five stars.
This podcast is now like attending a university lecture on your favorite topic but taught by a professor that you just don't find engaging. The show no longer has the pace and the spirit that it once had. For example, if you can say something in 70 words that is always better than saying it in 100 words. And this show always opts for 100. Or 150.
At one time, I listened to each episode the day it came out. Now, I am four or five episodes back. I will keep listening, because it's good Star Trek content, but I am no longer really excited about new episodes.
The best Trek podcast
I've loved Star Trek since 1992, and this is my go-to podcast for entertainment and analysis of the franchise. The podcast is part of the Roddenberry umbrella, so it's focused much more on the pre-JJ era with a thoughtful and critical look at what came before 2008. The hosts call it like they see it but it doesn't have that cynical bile alot of Youtube-era critics do of the classics. I thoroughly enjoy throwing on an episode while working or playing a flight simulator. It reminds me of the playground conversations my friends would have during DS9's initial run.
