The Picard Primer.
There’s a lot new and old fans can do to prepare for the 2020 premiere of “Star Trek: Picard.” The trio sip some Earl Grey and put on their too short robes to discuss the pivotal episodes/movies that help establish this new series. From the Borg to Romulans, and from Seven to Data, there’s a weekend’s worth of bingeing to get in the “Picard” mood. Let us know what story best epitomizes the future admiral’s story.
The Symbols of Trek.
The universe of Star Trek offers a myriad of cultures, races, and more. Each of those alien species offers various logos and symbology that makes them unique. The trio looks at those symbols - how well do they represent their respective cultures? And are there hidden meanings? What is your favorite Trek logo?
Star Trek: Voyager's Two-Parters, Edition 1
It's a hot time in the Star Trek Universe - the trio talks about their hopes and excitement for the upcoming 2020 Star Trek shows.
They also look at the long form storytelling of 1990's Star Trek: Voyager. As with many Trek series, they made use of two-parters to either end/start a season or provide a larger story in the middle of the season. They examine the episodes "Basics," "Future's End," "Scorpion," and "Year of Hell." Were these stories worthy of two episodes or could they have been told another way? And did some of the two-parters leave us wanting more? Let us know your favorite VOY two-parter.
Space Vessel "Deaths"
In Star Trek, we mourn the loss of many characters - including those many starships that were sacrificed for the greater good. Or were just destroyed by a lucky shot. Or blew up in an alternate timeline.
The trio look at each of the ship "deaths" in all of the Star Trek live action series, and whether they were meaningful or just a cool explosion.
Which is your most memorable "ship death"?
Talkin’ Ships, Part Two.
