Episode 107: Yesterday’s Enterprise

IT HAS BEEN A LONG WAR – OR HAS IT?

Let’s make sure history never forgets the name…Enterprise!” – Jean-Luc Picard

Military Log – Podcast Date 7/4/17.  It is considered to be one of the finest hours in Star Trek history.  Almost every list of favorite episodes includes this one.  It brings back a familiar face with the return of Tasha Yar and offers up an interesting moral dilemma!  It is Yesterday’s Enterprise and the Trek Geeks finally have the discussion they have hinted at for quite a while!

It is no secret that Bill is not a huge fan of this episode and today you will finally get all the details of why.  While Dan admits he thinks it is a spectacular stand alone hour of Star Trek, he too has reservations about the ramifications of this episode in future seasons.  It is an interesting discussion that may have you re-thinking how you feel about good ole NCC-1701-C!

Plus, there are tons of new details about Star Trek Discovery including a “set in stone” premier date, an old friend will be directing an upcoming episode and we finally get a Discovery panel at an upcoming convention!

Finally, the Cosplay for Good fundraiser to help the Nevada SPCA is in full swing!  The Trek Geeks are raising money to help the largest no kill animal shelter in the Las Vegas area by wearing TNG Season 1 skants at STLV!  With a little over a month to go before the convention, the guys have an update on how things are going so far.

It’s all in Episode 107 of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast! Whatever you do, don’t alter the timeline by not listening!

Episode 106: Star Trek Nemesis

WAS IT THE PROPER SEND-OFF?

Can you learn to see in the dark, Captain?” – Shinzon

It was a dark movie. Literally and figuratively.  It ended up being the last of the Star Trek movies with the TNG cast.  But was it a worthy finale??

This week, the Trek Geeks will give their take on Star Trek: Nemesis.  Their memories of the 2002 film are not as positive as other feature films, and they will jump right into the reasons why this was a less than stellar big screen exit for Picard and his crew.

Prime Directive violations, dark sets, “tired” acting.  This list goes on and on.  But fear not, there are plenty of things that the Geeks liked, and they will get into those too!

Plus, perhaps the biggest announcement ever from our good friends at Star Trek Continues dropped this week!  Also, a familiar face recently got to test out the new Star Trek Bridge Crew virtual reality game.  What did she have to say?

In addition, if you are attending San Diego ComicCon or STLV, you may want to make some room for a new con exclusive Holiday Keepsake ornament!  Finally, QMx is releasing a replica of a classic TOS piece of furniture and we have all the details for you!

It’s all in Episode 106 of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast! We hope you’ll join us as we raise a glass of Chateau Picard!
