Char and Tristan discuss what it was like growing up Star Trek fans and how they either wrote down their Trek fantasies or just played them in their head. Imagining themselves on the bridge of the Enterprise or lost in the Delta Quadrant, it didn't matter because it was a place to escape. They discuss this as well as how certain fantasies can become unhealthy.
What are some of your Star Trek fantasies that you go to?
Listen, neither Char nor Tristan want an R rated movie. That's why they think it would interesting if they were forced to write one. With news of the possibility of a Tarantino Trek coming getting more and more serious, they wanted to see what it would take to get a Trek amped up to R. How much language, how much sex, how much violence would be "appropriate"? More importantly, what kind of story would be ideal?
There is zero way of knowing for sure but your Punch It crew loves a good "What if?" This week, we take a look at the Picard trailer again and see if we can fill in the gaps between when Jean-Luc leaves Starfleet and when the show picks up. So many direction to go in it's hard to choose one, but we try.
What if "Year of Hell" was on other iterations of Star Trek?
This was a listener suggestion that we were itching to try out. We started developing scenarios for Deep Space Nine and The Original Series and got really excited. As we moved on to The Next Generation and Enterprise we started seeing a pattern in the existing writing of the show.
Our honest and hyped reactions to the Star Trek: Picard trailer
We started out the episode thinking this would just be an intro topic but it ended up filling the entire episode. This week we ponder the ramifications of this type of show as well as the possibilities of directions that show as well as the character of Picard could take.
20 years is a long time and the world, as well as our former Captain, is very different.
