    The Tangential Nexus (Star Trek: Generations)

    "Now hear this. Now hear this. On this week's episode of Kirking Off the lads leave 20 minutes on the cutting room floor and still manage to top in at over 3 hours, but stick around, because a bevy of questions are answered this week: first, how do the lads feel about the legendary meeting between Captain Kirk and Captain Picard? Does their chemistry work? Can you take mileage off a starship by flying it backwards? Does the Klingon side plot with the Duras Sisters work? Is a multiverse created as the result of leaving the Nexus? Is what Picard sees in the Nexus something that makes sense? How about Kirk's Nexus visit? Can we truly believe that Soren can outfight Captain Picard without the help of his droogies? And finally, is Kirk's death a good send-off for such a storied character? Well, if you forgot, he fell down and died after going for his remote control... yes that's what happened. We present to you, Star Trek: Generations."

    Death, Destroyer of Worlds (VOY “Jetrel”)

    Death, Destroyer of Worlds (VOY “Jetrel”)

    “Now hear this. Now hear this. On this week’s episode of Kirking Off we continue our weapons of mass destruction block which introduces us to Jetrel the Haakonian Oppenheimer who developed a weapon that killed upwards of 300,000 Talaxians when it was deployed during a war between the Talaxians and the Haakonians. As predicted the resident Talaxian - Neelix - isn’t exactly thrilled with Jetrel’s presence on the Voyager, and hostility ensues. Nathan feels the episode had a few too many threads and could have benefited from more focus. Dean doesn’t necessarily agree, but he spends lots of time choking on his wine (let’s hope we got all that coughing out in post). Most of the crew think Neelix should stop his whinging about his entire family being vaporized, because Jetrel feels really really bad about the whole thing. Things turn when we realize that Neelix may be terminally ill, and Jetrel goes all Re-Animator to clear his conscience and possibly save himself. The lads get into the metaphysical a bit, and then go WAY off-base when they apply Patrice ONeal’s scale on rating attractiveness. They manage to reign it back and wrap it up with some more conversation about the moral responsibility of designing and deploying weapons of mass destruction. We present to you “Jetrel” from Star Trek: Voyager.”

    A Not So Glorious or Noble Death (DS9 "Blaze of Glory")

    A Not So Glorious or Noble Death (DS9 "Blaze of Glory")

    "Now hear this. No hear this. On this week's episode of Kirking Off we dive back into Deep Space Nine, and our favorite egomaniacal freedom fighter, Michael Eddington returns for his heroic swan song ending. General Martok teaches his fellow Klingons how to turn each other's faces into paste. Speaking of the Klingons, they are now in an alliance with the Federation as the Cardassians have taken up with the Dominion. Needless to say the Alpha Quadrant political situation is tense. The Maquis are all but wiped out, because come to find out, the Dominion plays by a different set of rules than the Federation. They have just about eradicated the Maquis minus a small holdout who have launched a spiteful, and final attack against the Cardassians using cloaked missiles. This gets us back to Eddington. Sisko forcibly enlists Eddington to help him locate the launch site to ensure this final attack is stopped. Lots of discussion about Eddington as a leader and as a man. Is he a good leader? How close is he to Rebecca? Will Brian's insight into the Maquis give us more sympathy for this rag-tag group? We present to you Blaze of Glory from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine."

    Freedom Fighter or Terrorist? (DS9 "For the Uniform")

    Freedom Fighter or Terrorist? (DS9 "For the Uniform")

    "Now hear this. Now hear this. On this week's episode of Kirking Off, Captain Sisko is hot on the trail of Michael Eddington, the former Starfleet Security man who has gone rogue, and now leads the Maquis who are bent on stopping the forced relocation of 100,000 colonists. Discussion topics this week: Is Eddington acting morally? Is Sisko? What makes a terrorist? Are both men acting selfishly and is that bad, morally speaking? Does altruism exist? Will Nathan's unforeseen car repair turn this once freedom-loving man, into a dour bureaucrat who wants the powers that be to sign away your liberty for the greater good? We present to you, "For the Uniform" from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine."

    Daddy Pike's Fancy New Hair (SNW "Strange New Worlds")

    "Now hear this. Now hear this. On this week's episode of Kirking Off Dean and Nathan bring in life-long Trek fan, Brian who is also a friend of the show and friend in real life. The three lads dive into something new from the Star Trek universe - can you believe it? Lots of existential discussion this week based around one of the central premises of the episode: Captain Pike knows he will sustain a life-changing injury that will confine him to a chair, and drastically change his quality of life. Does having that knowledge impact him for better or worse? How would it affect you? As for the main plot: Does it really only take 3 crewmembers to run the USS Archer? Does the transporter shenanigan's present future or past problems for the Trek universe? What exactly is a Gorn breeding sack? Is Data's use of the word 'shit' in Star Trek: Generations the beginning of the end of Star Trek? Lots of tangential discussions around Trek, armchair philosophy, and some of the actual episode. We present to you Strange New Worlds from Star Trek: Strange New Worlds."

    The Clone Wars (TNG "Up the Long Ladder")

    The Clone Wars (TNG "Up the Long Ladder")

    "Now hear this. Now hear this. On this week's episode we reach into the archives of our old series called, Trek Talk, bonus episodes previously recorded for our members-only podcast. And on this episode Nathan and Dean get together and hang out with the space Irish. Worf gets the Klingon version of the measles, drinks poison tea, and reminds us of his pride and courage. Picard makes a call to Crusher and begs her to return to the show. The lads get into some of the terms presented this week like: European Hegemony and Neo Transcendentalists. It's a TNG episode that feels like it could have been in the Original Series, and the good captain seems as if he is completely uninterested in his passengers and doing his best to dump them at first opportunity. Fortunately, we find some clones and they need breeding stock, so the space Irish will have to make a decision - embrace polyandry or be vented into space by an irritable Picard. Nate wants Riker to murder clone babies, and Dean talks about the Blade Runner replicants and their lack of emotional development -- again. We present to you Up the Long Ladder from Star Trek: The Next Generation."

Kirking Off is the Show for You

Never fear, Kirking Off is here! Don’t let the goofy impersonations and wickedly hilarious jokes throw you off. Each week Dean, Nate and new addition Brian hop on their own version of the Enterprise and travel to the far reaches of the Star Trek Universe to talk about all that it has to offer. From TOS to Next Gen to Voyager this trio does it all! Not familiar with Trek or just getting hopping on the starship? No worries, these guys have your back!
