    It’s Been a Long Road…

    It’s Been a Long Road…

    It's Been a Long Road...!
    getting from there to here. It's true. We started this podcast a little over 3 years ago with the premiere of Star Trek: Discovery and our first new Star Trek on TV since the end of Enterprise. Since then, we've covered both season of Disco, Picard, Lower Decks, all of the feature films, Galaxy Quest, and some more in between. This week, the mission comes to an end, much like The Original Series.

    We close things out with a discussion on Star Trek: Lower Decks Ep. 10 "No Small Parts" and the first season as a whole. We also talk Star Trek news including a huge returning star for Prodigy. We also provide some hopes and thoughts for Discovery Season 3 which kicks off this week. Finally, we say our goodbyes to the podcast and wish you all the best.

    We will continue our Facebook community, so please join us there for more Star Trek discussions, polls, memes, and who knows what else: Facebook.com/groups/RedshirtsAndRunabouts

Cameron N Harrison ,

The Star Trek friends I don’t have

I finally got around to starting Discovery!! But alas, I have no one to talk about it with. Either my friends don’t care, or they’re all caught up and just give me knowing smiles and smirks when I share my thoughts.

That’s where Redshirts and Runabouts comes in! I can listen back to their old episodes and hear their takes of the show and it’s like geeking out with my own circle of friends who’ve only seen as much as I have. Plus they give some nice context of the wider Trek community’s thoughts on the show, since I missed out on that at the time as well.

Thanks R

Entertaining and Informative

Great group of people - they know their Trek, and obviously love the shows/lore. They approach it with respect, humor, and aren’t scared to go against the grain.

AvengerZS ,

Excellent Trek discussion

I'm glad Trek has returned to television and I'm enjoying your discussion about the episodes. Keep it up, guys!
