www.trekaboutshow.com A persuasive Trekkie somehow convinces a series virgin to go on a seven-year-mission to watch every episode of every Star Trek series. Can someone fall in love with The Original Series 50 years after airing? Is Dr. Pulaski a better character than Dr. Crusher? What's the deal with Geordi and Wesley, anyway? The answers to these questions and more can be found every Tuesday.
Trekabout Episode 323: Star Trek: Picard, Season 1
The first season of Star Trek: Picard is over, and what better way to celebrate it than for Eric and Richard to sit down and discuss what they thought of it? Plus! A bonus discussion of Jewish mysticism. Yes, this is indeed an episode of Trekabout.
Trekabout Patron Special 34: Rosemary’s Baby
On this, the last ever patron special, we sat down to discuss the 1968 classic Rosemary’s Baby. (First released October 2018.)
Trekabout Patron Special 33: The Return of Picard
On this patron special, we sat down to discuss the then-breaking news that Patrick Stewart would return to play Jean-Luc Picard. (First released September 2018.)
Trekabout Patron Special 32: Q-in-Law by Peter David
This week on the third-to-last patron special, we sat down to discuss the 1991 TNG novel Q-in-Law. You’re welcome. (First released August 2018.)
Trekabout Patron Special 31: JFK
Richard managed to talk Eric into covering the 1991 film Oliver Stone film JFK. (First released July 2018.) What happened to the 30th patron special, you may ask? The finished episode has somehow been lost. We still have the raw audio, but Eric is too lazy to reedit it. Every great work of art has a lost piece–Trekabout is no exception.
Trekabout Patron Special 29: Contact
This week on the rapidly-depleting stock of patron specials, we talked about the wonderful movie Contact. (First released May 2018.)

Gone before its time, still worth it
I came to Trekabout in their coverage of DS9 and immediately loved their insider/outsider approach to discussing the episodes. They always had thoughtful, or at least honest, feedback. Of special delight was their personal critical lenses for seeing the franchise.
Besides their nerdy take, they also gave occasional insight as gay men. It’s a valuable perspective that is lacking among my circle of Trekkie friends. I listened religiously, looking forward to every week’s release and was deeply saddened when the slog through Voyager ultimately ended their run.
I’m delighted that they’ve returned these last few weeks in some form by posting their Patreon specials. It’s good to hear them again and have these weekly postings, even if only for a while.
I've tried a lot of Star Trek podcasts, and Trekabout is the only one that's ever consistently held my attention. Unreservedly pointing out as many flaws as joys, listening to Richard and Eric is like discussing Trek with old friends long after your real friends have gotten sick of listening to you speculate about Bolian physiology. Thanks, guys. I'll miss you.
The first Star Trek podcast I've subscribed to and exactly the kind of podcast I enjoy listening to. Love the dynamic with one host being a fan and another being new to the shows, which brings two unique perspectives to start interesting and fun conversations. I started with the Voyager episodes and was bummed to find out that it's been put on hiatus because I'm liking their commentaries on it so far, but there's the four previous Trek shows they've also covered so I'm just getting into those. Looking forward to those and more!
