Beam in to TR3 for fun, incisive, and sometimes deep (space nine) conversations about all things Star Trek -- from the Original Series to the movies, Discovery, Picard, Lower Decks, Strange New Worlds... and beyond!
224. The Best Friends of Star Trek
The Star Trek Book of Friendship authors Robb Pearlman and Jordan Hoffman beam in this week to talk about the many, many pals and buddies throughout the history of the franchise. We also dive into Strange New Worlds and ponder... who is Captain Pike's best bud on the new show?
223. Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Premiere Review
Captain Pike, Spock, Una, Uhura and the rest of the U.S.S. Enterprise crew are back with Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, one of the best (and most fun) Trek shows ever (so far). Listen now for our review and interview with Strange New Worlds' co-showrunner Henry Alonso Myers. We also take a stroll through the Replimat, open up the Reader Mailbag and beam in two Red Shirts from the Kelvin. So stop marveling at Pike's amazing beard and listen now to TR3!
222. Scotty's Revenge!
Scotty literally beams down this week for our deep dive into “Relics,” the classic Star Trek: The Next Generation episode which turns 30 this year. We also go on a Chekov tangent about that time he almost appeared on TNG... as a bad guy. So get comfy on the bridge of the original Enterprise (no bloody A, B, C, or D) and listen now!
221. Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Next Generation
Happy First Contact week! It was a big one. Star Trek: Picard Season 3 will reunite the Star Trek: The Next Generation cast and Star Trek: The Motion Picture - The Director's Cut hit Paramount+ in 4K. We have thoughts on both, along with a few Red Shirts to eulogize. So belay that phaseeeer orderrrrr and listen now.
220. Jonathan Frakes Remembers ‘Cause and Effect’ at 30
Believe it or not, the classic Next Generation time-loop episode “Cause and Effect” just hit its 30th anniversary! And to celebrate, none other than Jonathan Frakes himself -- who directed the hour in addition to wearing his three pips very prominently throughout -- beams in to look back on the fan-favorite episode. We also do a quick Picard check-in, hit a reader mail, and of course mourn a ton of Red Shirts. So get all those threes out of your subconscious system, and listen now to TR3!
219. Picard Season 2 'The Star Gazer' Episode Review
After two long years, Star Trek: Picard is back. And the former Enterprise captain has brought with him the Borg Queen, Guinan, and *in exasperated Picard voice* Q. So is the Season 2 premiere any good? Listen and find out! We also have one of our biggest collections of Red Shirts ever. So pour a glass of Chateau Picard and listen to the newest TR3!
These guys love Star Trek. Unlike a lot of podcasts these days, they can express where things are lacking in shows without tearing down the work or getting too cynical. Thanks for a great listen!
