This week we take a fantastic listener suggestion and develop 24th century Short Treks that bridge The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager. We took a stab at two and an interesting theme came up that is revealed in the title.
What are some Short Trek ideas you would have liked to have seen in the 90s?
What stories could be explored if Star Trek leaned heavy on animation?
We've had Star Trek: The Animated Series and now we're getting Lower Decks. But what if an executive came into a room and said "We're starting a new initiative with a lot of animated Star Trek projects. Pitch me some ideas." This week, we discuss that scenario and explore what kind of stories could be told.
We've been gone for quite some time but are happy to be back! We catch up with each other as well as the audience as to what was going on during those three weeks. But we mainly geek out about the new Picard and Discovery trailers! We talk briefly about the new Short Treks but there are zero spoilers.
We continue with oddball pairings this week and it goes into some uncomfortable territory. Last week we developed an entire relationship between Janeway and Neelix. This week we spend time on more than one couple. We tackle, flirting, infidelity, and how there were a lot of triangles in Deep Space Nine.
