    Positively Trek 209: The Best Vacation Spots in the Final Frontier!

    Where Are You Going for Your Galactic Getaway?

     

    Over the past 900+ episodes and films, Star Trek has had no shortage of candidates for a fantastic vacation in the 23rd, 24th, or even 32nd centuries! Join Bruce and Dan as they discuss where they would love to holiday in the final frontier (and a few places they’d rather stay away from).

     

    In the news segment, we discuss a recent interview with Melissa Navia on Ortegas’s role in season 2 of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, Jason Isaacs willingness to portray Prime Lorca, a new casting addition to Star Trek: Picard’s third season, and the possible end of the line for Star Trek Starships producer Eaglemoss.

Positive Trek Talk!

This is just what the doctor ordered! I listen to Dan and Bruce on Literary Treks even when I haven’t read the book, which is often, because of how much I enjoy hearing them talk Trek, and the positivity they bring.

Now is the time, more than ever, for some good-natured, entertaining Trek talk!
