    4-22 Yesterday's Enterprise - part 1

    Most Star Trek TV scripts are created in a fairly straightforward way - and then there’s "Yesterday’s Enterprise”: a mash-up of stories, a train wreck of a process, and yet one of the most popular episodes of The Next Generation ever. For its 30th anniversary this month, let The Trek Files decipher the paper trail from those crazy days of 26-episode seasons with none other than its co-writer, TNG script coordinator (and lifelong fan) Eric Stillwell.

    Back when petitions were on paper rather than online, the seventh and eighth graders at Dover, DE's Central Middle School added their signatures to the throngs of fans who wanted Star Trek to return to network TV. Who started the petition? We may never know. How did Gene Roddenberry react? We do know that, and we'll share the answer in this week's Trek Files.

    4-19 Star Trek directorial commitments - 1967

    It seems pretty simple on the surface - the names of two directors alternate to finish 16 episodes of Star Trek. This memo from 1967 contains a lot more if you read between the lines though. We welcome back Trek veteran Mike DeMerrit to help us grasp the logistical balance of making The Original Series.

Document Deep Dive into Trek

From Trek.fm and the Roddenberry Network, comes a short-form discussion show about documents found in Gene's personal archives. Each week, they read a document and discuss the implications, history, and how it fits in the behind the scenes narrative of the show. The hosts are engaging and fun; extremely knowledgeable and well-researched. For any Trek fan, no matter how big or small, this is a must-list.
