OldSandi ,

Great podcast

This is an entertaining podcast. I really appreciate that you can play it with children in the car. So many Star Trek podcasts use profanity indiscriminately. Even the ones featuring Star Trek actors.

PaigeXXIII ,

Great reviews.

I like Star Trek thanks.

The S.K.P. Machine ,

A Waste of Time

There is an unfortunate amount of recency bias here, as regards “Strange New Worlds” & “Picard.” “S.N.W.” is better than “Discovery” & season three of “Picard” might be better than season one, but that’s no excuse for cutting the new shows more slack than is given to T.O.S. & the “T.N.G” era shows.
