Episode 101: William T. Riker

OUR #1 NUMBER ONE!

This week, we kick off our post Episode 100 journey with a fun discussion about the one and only William T. Riker, first officer of the Enterprise D and E.  As the reigning champion of our First Officer Thunderdome Episode last year, we felt it was time to give the Commander the attention he deserves!

Not only will we dive into his past, his present and his future, we will do so with a very special guest! This week, Terilynn Shull from The G & T Show is with us to talk about her favorite First Officer.  We are thrilled to welcome her to the show and we think you will agree – she has some very special love for ‘ole Will Riker!

Additionally, we will give our thoughts to the response we have been getting from Episode 100 “A Journey to Future’s Past, Part I” and maybe even give a little sneak peek into what Part II will bring later this year.  Also, we discuss some great new details about casting for Star Trek: Discovery, will there be a Star Trek 4 in the Kelvin Timeline and William Shatner is ready to play Captain Kirk again at the ripe young age of 86!

It’s all in Episode 101 of “Your Independent Star Trek Podcast” and we hope you’ll join us!
