    Star Trek: Enterprise | Dear Doctor

    Star Trek: Enterprise | Dear Doctor

    In an era before the prime directive exists, the crew of the Enterprise picks up a dying humanoid that represents an entire species on the brink of death.  Their request, for Archer to give them Warp drive capabilities, Dr Phlox has second thoughts about it, thinking that their extinction may actually be a part of the evolution of their planet as a new species is about to rise.  Man, if only there was actually a guiding principle to help them out in situations like that.  Let's find out Matt's take on this episode as he watches it for the first time.  

    If you're watching with us, the next episode will be a two parter, "The Andorian Incident" and "Shadows of P'Jem."  These episodes are not right next to eachother, but they are both from season 1 and certainly belong together.

    Star Trek: Enterprise | Broken Bow

    It's been a while since we've had a new series.  So we do the thing in this episode where we not only talk about the episode itself, but we meet the new crew, the new ship, and set the stage for where we are going as finish out this podcast.  

    In this episode, the first starship Enterprise, the NX-01, launches humanity into deep space, with a mission to return a klingot...I mean klingon...to his homeworld. But of course it's never as easy as it sounds, as this new crew is about to find out.  How does Matt like this new crew and the idea of a series as a prequel?  Let's jump in and find out.  

    If you're watching with us, the next episode will be "Dear Doctor."

    Star Trek: Voyager | Endgame

    Star Trek: Voyager | Endgame

    It seems like just last week that we were saying goodbye to the crew of Deep Space Nine, and now we are saying goodbye to the crew of Voyager (of course only doing 3 episodes from season 6 helped).  In this episode, Admiral Janeway travels to the past to attempt to bring Voyager home earlier to avoid the tragic deaths of Seven of Nine, Chakotay, and eventually even Tuvok.  What does Matt think of this series finale?  Is it better than the other Endgame that finished a major series?  Let's go and find out. 

    If you're watching with us, the next episode will be the series premiere of Enterprise, the episode is Broken Bow.

Engaging and Fun

This is one of the most engaging and fun podcasts I’ve ever heard. Love it.

High quality, fun, and dynamic podcast for all

This podcast is a main contributor to my interest in Star Trek. I had mental blocks against the show for decades. (I planted my flag on the Star Wars hill. 💁🏻‍♀️) Eventually, I opened my mind a bit and was interested in seeking out shows and podcasts that lead to reflection on the philosophy of morality, and just the different philosophical complexities of life. I ended up listening to one of the early episodes of this podcast, which then prompted me to watch the corresponding TOS episode. I realized Trek is the epitome of what I was looking for and I was a silly goose for pushing back against it for so long. But, would I have gotten there without this podcast? Well, maybe, but it probably would have taken a lot longer. Thanks a ton to Brent and Matt for giving free hours (and hours and hours) of their lives to put out a quality product. The production and sound quality is exceptional! Their chemistry on the show is great. And it’s fun to have the dynamic of Matt who, like me, is previously unfamiliar with Trek versus Brent who has seen all the episodes and shows multiple times. Regardless of where you are in your own Trek journey, this is *the* Trek podcast for you! Highly recommend, 5 out of 5 stars.

Great Quality, Great Content

I haven't seen most of the episodes they cover, but they make me want to go and watch them so I can feel a part of the conversation. The audio quality of this show is great, and the hosts are entertaining. They go so in-depth as to why each episode is so meaningful to the franchise and make a great case as to why this is such a cultural phenomenon. It's fun to hear the opinions and observations of a first-time watcher, too! Overall, a great podcast for Trekkies as well as new fans who want to watch each episode and follow along.
