We invite you to join us on our continuing mission as we explore the Star Trek universe with humour. We're watching every single Star Trek episode and movie and discussing them on the show.
(TTV Selects) Trek TV Episode 20 - The Alternative Factor
In this episode of Trek TV we discuss Star Trek TOS season 3 - "The Alternative Factor". Vaughn and Jared host.
Trek TV Episode 218 - Star Trek: The Next Generation S05E23 - "I, Borg"
In this episode of Trek TV we discuss Star Trek: The Next Generation S05E23 - "I, Borg". Hosted by Tracy and Vaughn. Guest-starring Derek, Dustin, and Jared. Listen, nobody* ever** really WANTS to have to genocide an entire race. But sometimes, one has to fall back on the classic, legally and philosophically unimpeachable, defense of "they started it". Luckily, we don't have to wrestle with watching our beloved, be-balded captain commit fully to his morally-questionable eradication plan this time, and it's all thanks to everyone's favorite adorable reformed Borg, Hugh! Well, favorite until the one with the big gazongas comes along, but for now he's the only game in town. So soap up your abs, solidly affix your buttplates, gather multiple people together for a podcast recording in the same room for the first time in like literally a decade, and sever your oppressive link to the Collective with this extremely delayed holiday episode of Trek TV!
*we've received reports that this is, horrifyingly, not true
**and also that it's apparently fairly frequent. Ok so maybe just a touch of global assimilation for, say, a month or so might not be the worst thing to try
Trek TV Episode 217 - Star Trek: The Next Generation S05E22 - "Imaginary Friend"
In this episode of Trek TV we discuss Star Trek: The Next Generation S05E22 - "Imaginary Friend". Hosted by Tracy and Vaughn. Guest-starring Jared. Imaginary friends! They're extremely common and normal for kids to have, according to all TV forever. But what if: there was some sort of terrifying, bloodthirsty person out there gratuitously murdering the poor innocent imaginary friends of every last child she came across?! That's not the plot of this episode at all, but it probably would have been a hell of a lot better if it was! In fact, we strongly recommend you make a concerted effort to focus your mind on this much, much more exciting concept, as we attempt to scrape away this relatively inoffensive last remaining bit of effluent residue that this string of stinkers have oozed all over our poor podcast. Don't worry though, we'll further help distract your poor embattled psyche with discussions of the bewildering universal homogeny of morning zoo crews, the disappointing lack of scientific rigor in modern mythbusting, the surprising truth of where stress is stored, and at least some more! So lock up your imaginary friends in the panic room and tell them to not make a sound (it won't help), hide all the terrible crafts you don't want thrown out, and brace yourself for a blandly tolerable episode of Trek TV!
Trek TV Episode 216 - Star Trek: The Next Generation S05E21 - "The Perfect Mate"
In this episode of Trek TV we discuss Star Trek: The Next Generation S05E21 - "The Perfect Mate". Hosted by Tracy and Vaughn. Guest-starring Derek and Jared. Few people realize that everyone here at Trek TV has been hand-selected as a gifted mutant podcastmorph, with the ability to sense what a potential listener wants, what they need, what gives them the greatest pleasure; and then do the exact opposite of that. So we're probably a subspecies of everyone involved with formulating "The Perfect Mate"! But we're certainly not perfect, so if you're by some chance actually looking for nuanced discussion of the illusion of choice, the difficulty of lying to one's children, the best song ever written about smelling a body part, the surprising international popularity of Canadian high school drama programs, and so much more... well, Vaughn's your uncle! So put on your finest velvet and strongest codpiece, bust open your poorly-secured golden bean, and just maybe you'll be slightly prepared for the train about to be run on you that is this episode of Trek TV!
Trek TV Episode 215 - Star Trek: The Next Generation S05E20 - "Cost of Living"
In this episode of Trek TV we discuss Star Trek: The Next Generation S05E20 - "Cost of Living". Hosted by Tracy and Vaughn. Guest-starring Derek and Jared. Warning: only those "whose hearts are joyous" may listen to this episode of Trek TV. Well, unless they can somehow overcome, through sheer strength, the imposing presence of a weird stupid rainbow-checkerboarded head in a bubble. Of course, the real question is: with the double threat of Lwaxana Troi and Alexander Rozhenko actually TEAMING UP, why would you WANT to? We're not sure either, but what we DO know is there's plenty of discussion of the pitfalls and practicalities of interspecies online dating, bizarre and disturbing Australian pronunciations, unsafe sausage handling practices, shockingly graphic posterior displays, and so much more. It's best you accept your premorse and our apologies, get higher and/or fewer as necessary, and hop right into the muddy stew that is this episode of Trek TV before it all turns into some kind of slimy goo! Well, a different kind of slimy goo, anyway.
Trek TV Episode 214 - Star Trek: The Next Generation S05E19 - "The First Duty"
In this episode of Trek TV we discuss Star Trek: The Next Generation S05E19 - "The First Duty". Hosted by Tracy and Vaughn. Guest-starring Derek and Jared. Here at Trek TV, our first duty is to the truth. And by the truth, we mean the liquor, and the truth is some of us definitely take that duty a bit more seriously than others. But don't judge us too harshly; much like our perennial Golden Boy Wesley was seduced and, finally, corrupted by the charm and coiffure of Not-Tom Paris, we were the victim of a similarly brash and manipulative lockdown that seemed like it would never end. But also some of us might have just started the maneuver waaaaay too early. Well, whether we were ready to thread this particularly hazardous needle or not, that hasn't stopped us from opening our exhaust hatches wide and venting out metric tonnes of steaming-hot discussions around the illusions of choice, uncertain spice enunciation, useful cult recruitment tips, disturbing new forensic techniques, the essential metrics of after-school specials, the unconscionable existence of the demon "Bixby", and so, so, SO much more in this, an episode of Trek TV so dangerous and ill-advised that just making it through probably actually qualifies you for credit on both your hazardous/long-haul flight certification and your Starfleet psych test.
Couldnt get past the first 10 minutes. This podcast sounds very amateurish, starting with the fact that the main host and one guest, are off mic, so they sort of sound hollow in the background, and one guest is directly on mic and sounds fine. But nobody noticed that two out of three people were off mic? They make a LOT of lame jokes and talk about irrelivant things. Finally, they sound very lazy in that one person was asking about a particular director and what was the research on him, and the other two just said they hadn't done anything. Not worth the 50 minutes, and in some cases close to hour and a hlaf that you would have to waste to listen to the whole thing. I would skip it

Comedic Review of Each Episode
From the 80s style haircuts in TNG, to the outrageous fight scenes in TOS... from the sex appealing weekly guest stars in TOS, to the confusing and often contradictory plots of TNG... This show is not for people who aren't willing to point out flaws in their favorite series. Any person who can't see the insanity or belligerence of Picard or the foolish, bone-headedness of Kirk should look for another podcast where the hosts just interview hosts of other podcasts and rarely even talk about the episode.
The hosts give their opinions, and that's what makes a good podcast; they don't just rehash episodes and talk about what they did that week. A high recommend for people that like to laugh.
