    Kobayashi Maru

    Kobayashi Maru

    We’re back with another Enterprise book, but also Em’s been digging into some other parts of the Star Trek universe so look forward to a quick run down of the TNG relaunch books on this wild adventure into the nightmare world of space politics, space racism, space espionage, space romance, and anything else you could possibly append space to the front of! We’ll be back again, some day, we’ve finally gotten to the Romulan War we were promised!
    SPOILERS for Enterprise, TNG, Discovery, and hell probably Picard too

    The Good That Men Do

    The Good That Men Do

    Nobody can say when the intrepid Trek fans returned to history, but that is really the question we’ve come to discuss. Who has constructed this history, and for what purposes? What if Section 31 is actually not that bad? What if Andorians truly are the most obnoxious Federation member group? All this and more as we once again dip into the world of Star Trek!

    Last Full Measure

    Last Full Measure

    Pulled out of mothballs for one last mission, the intrepid crew of this ramshackle podcast are back to talk about an Enterprise book and the show as a whole. No other Trek news, but enjoy this microcosm of the whole show over the course of an hour. Someday we will probably return again!

    Star Trek Into Darkness

    Star Trek Into Darkness

    We’re back after a long hiatus to … enjoy the worst Star Trek movie ever made! Join us as we take the trek into darkness and come out the other side confused as to why you’d even build a warp core like that, why Khan is even a bad guy in this universe, and what anyone’s motivation actually is. Also, we talk about the trailers for both Discovery season 3 and Picard! Thank you everyone who has ever said you enjoyed this show. We will always be out there, ready to return when the time is right.

    Discovery S02E14 "Such Sweet Sorrow" part ii

    Star Trek Discovery is finished (for now), and so are we (for now). Of all the souls we have met in our journeys, this was the most television.

    Discovery S02E13 "Such Sweet Sorrow" part i

    In the penultimate episode of Discovery season 2, Tilly’s girlfriend returns, everyone gets a goodbye, everyone gets another goodbye, and nothing really happens. Sorry for a downer one, it will be over soon.

Good

Probably the only Star Trek podcast with good opinions. Also good for someone who wants to know what happens after the shows end, but can't be bothered to read the books.
