    Revisiting "Enterprise"

    Live-action "Star Trek" has been successful in all its incarnations ... except for "Star Trek: Enterprise." Fans do enjoy the series, so it maintains success there - but it is the only Trek series to be cancelled prematurely since The Original Series. During its four season, there were many shows - the exploration and strange, new worlds of seasons one and two, the Xindi War thread of season three, and the celebration of Trek of season four. This series remains a jewel in the Trek franchise crown, but what will the trio look forward to upon rewatch? They discuss the good, bad, and ugly of "Enterprise" and why they all want to rewatch it next.

    280 - Return of Lore

    Character Profile: Lore

    He's back! ...maybe? Definitely. Er, we think, based on a few seconds in a trailer!

    Brent Spiner (possibly!) returns as Lore in season three of "Star Trek: Picard." The trio examines Lore and his relations with the Next Gen crew - how evil is this evil twin? He only appeared in three (or four, depending on how one counts) episodes: "Datalore," "Brothers," and "Descent" (Parts 1 and 2). What makes Lore the antithesis of Data? What is his motivation? What more did we learn about Data and his "family"? Let us know all the lore about Lore!

    Picard Season Three Preview: Beverly Crusher

    Dr. Crusher served as the chief medical officer of the Enterprise-D (most of the time...) and the Enterprise-E, creating relationships with her fellow officers and moving forward various stories.

From her role as doctor, mother, "friend", and more, she will bring a lot of history to her reunion with her Next Gen cast. What are your favorite Beverly moments? What are you hoping will happen with her in season three? Join the trio for all things Dr. Crusher!

    Season Three Picard Trailer

    A new trailer dropped - and we're here to explain it all.

    Well, by explain - we mean "madly speculate." The third and final season of "Star Trek: Picard" begins in 2023, but a new trailer revealed what audiences can expect for the final television adventure of Jean-Luc Picard. Old friends, new enemies ... as well as old ... await the former crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise-D.

    The trio explores what former foes of Picard and crew would form a "rogue's gallery." What villains might seek revenge against the admiral? What would the plot be? And how do Lore and Moriarty fit into it all? We give answers, only time will prove if they are correct!

WOW

I have been listening to Philip, Darren, and Daniel for a few years on Trek FM and have literally been saving Earl Grey because it’s one of my favorite Podcasts. For Star Trek, that and the Orb were my go to Podcasts. But I just discovered this show and couldn’t be more thrilled as I continue my Trek journey into the franchise’s new era. Good speed gentlemen and straight ahead until morning!

Great Trek Talk

Darren, Phillip, and Daniel have been doing this a while and it shows. Their chemistry together is great. Each host had his own particular interest and opinion when it comes to Trek which makes for a fun discussion.

The discussions span the high minded ideals of Star Trek to silliest and most preposterous of fan musings (Snake Bot, the Great Librarian!).

Have enjoyed listened by to these guys for a long while and looking forward to many episodes to come.

Live Long and Prosper.

Pleasant but often inaccurate

A good-natured, frequently funny podcast. Darren, Phillip, and Daniel have a pleasant and easygoing chemistry. My only complaint is that they obviously don’t do any research on their episode topics and frequently get things wrong as a result.
