    Punch It 134 - Our Last Indulgent J/C Story

    What if J/C was canon?

    In our last episode of Punch It: Writing in Star Trek, we tackle something near and dear to our hearts. Janeway and Chakotay are in love and you can't convince us otherwise. What if those cowards in the writer's room pulled the trigger and made it canon? We make up the relationship on the fly and figure out how the show would change if it was revealed they have been in an intimate relationship.

    Thank you all for listening.

    Punch It 133 - Stranded in LA

    What if the Voyager crew got stranded in LA when they went back in time?

    In Star Trek: Voyager's "Future's End" the crew got taken back to 1990s LA. They had to find their way back and of course, they did. But what if they didn't right away? What would happen? Would they get jobs? Would they move on? Would they stay together? We answer these questions and a whole lot more.

    22nd Century Short Trek

    This week we tackle Short Treks once again but this time within the 22nd century. Enterprise showed a great relationship between Trip and Archer. We wanted to expand on that and talk about their survival training together in Death Valley.

    24th Century Short Treks

    This week we take a fantastic listener suggestion and develop 24th century Short Treks that bridge The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager. We took a stab at two and an interesting theme came up that is revealed in the title.

    What are some Short Trek ideas you would have liked to have seen in the 90s?

    Punch It 130 - Animating the Future

    What stories could be explored if Star Trek leaned heavy on animation?

    We've had Star Trek: The Animated Series and now we're getting Lower Decks. But what if an executive came into a room and said "We're starting a new initiative with a lot of animated Star Trek projects. Pitch me some ideas." This week, we discuss that scenario and explore what kind of stories could be told.

    Punching Up "The Trouble with Edward"

    Char didn't like the latest Short Trek and Tristan thought it was fine. Regardless of your opinion on the quality of the episode, there are more than a few things that stand out as puzzling.

    This week, your Punch It crew takes the episode and figures out how they can punch it up and have it appeal to a wider Star Trek audience.

Love this show.

I'm a Star Trek fan but also have a real interest in sci-fi writing. Char & Tristen not only have excellent Trek knowledge but brilliant creativity and perfect chemistry!

This show is a real treat. I am so glad to have found something that explores Trek and writing. Tristan and Char are fabulous and their chemistry is amazing. So far I have enjoyed everything especially the Voyager ones. I loved the Mr Janeway's restaurant one so much. Keep up the great job guys.
