Star Trek: Voyager at 25
"Star Trek: Picard" is the newest entry into the Trek franchise in 2020 - and this year also marks the 25th anniversary of "Star Trek: Voyager." The seven year saga arrived on the air waves on January 16, 1995 and introduced us to characters that we would long remember. The trio talks about their favorite characters, episodes, and moments that would ensure "Voyager" would remain a permanent part of the Trek legacy. As Seven continues her journey on "Picard," what other "Voyager" characters will continue to live on the screen?
“Star Trek: Captains” Story Pitches.
As we eagerly await the premiere of “Star Trek: Picard,” the trio imagine similar TV series starring the other captains of the Star Trek franchise. What would “Star Trek: Sisko” look like, as the Emissary of the Prophets travels across time and space? What would Kirk be up to if a series was set after his “death” in the film “Generations”? Join us in this journey of TV series never-to-be and let us know your favorites.
The Star Trek Toys That Weren't
With the beginning of 2020, the Star Trek franchise is exploding and will no doubt expand their merchandise in the coming year. But what about the Playmates line of yesteryear and all the toys that weren't made? The trio brainstorm what a Founder's Planet playset would be like, the joy of playing with a floor mat Discovery bridge layout, and why we would be happy with a simple Next Gen quarters for our existing toys. Let us know your idea for the toys that never were.
We all know that 2020 begins a new era for the Star Trek franchise. We will see the debut of new Trek series ("Star Trek: Picard" and "Star Trek: Lower Decks") and the continuation of "Star Trek: Discovery." The trio discuss what they are looking forward to the most and what questions they have. They also examine what little is known of the Bynar species, as introduced in the TNG episode "11001001." As Daniel asks, "Do they make sense?" Let us know any of your New Trek Resolutions for 20202.
René Auberjonois (1940-2019)
