The Duras Sisters Podcast is all about honoring the fantastic characters and storylines in the Star Trek Universes. Two sisters, Ashlyn and Rhianna Herd, join the House of Duras and partake in weekly discussions about every series of Star Trek through a philosophical lens and Series Theme.

Each series will feature a theme and every new episode will travel from the Original Series to Prodigy, diving deeply into each detail of this epic franchise. We have covered these series: Pilot, Family, Love and Affection, Time Travel, Villains, Movies, Feminism, Death Fake Outs, First Officers, and the current Spooky series.

This podcast is the Star Trek fix you didn't know you needed, brought to you by the sisters who are as close as Lursa and B'etor themselves… except we survived Generations.

Listening to this podcast is very honorable!!

I never knew that I was missing the funniest, most informative podcast I've ever come across! The girls are incredibly talented and I am so so lucky to have discovered this show! Best of luck to you both!

Lady Sim ,

Fun for any Star Trek Fan

I learned about this podcast from another Star Trek podcast and have just started exploring. I love that all the seasons they have focus on different topics. I’m currently listening to their first officers season and it is excellent! I love that they spend an entire episode on each first officer and site specific episodes they used in their discussion. As a long time Trekkie I’m officially hooked!
