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!

Episode 79: Insurrection

THE BATTLE FOR PARADISE HAS BEGUN?

Star Trek: InsurrectionThe year was 1998. Dan and Bill were working in telephone support jobs supporting stock trading software and 56k dial-up modems ruled the day.

One day at work, they got the bright idea to download the brand-new trailer for the third movie featuring the cast of The Next Generation–Star Trek: Insurrection!  It took hours for the trailer to download and these two future Geeks looked forward to December.

Then they saw the movie.

The follow-up to First Contact didn’t exactly overwhelm. It’s been a long time since they’ve watched Insurrection, but the Trek Geeks will take a long look at this often maligned movie–and maybe even explain why it’s really not as bad as people make it out to be.

In addition to elements of the movie that they liked (and didn’t), they’ll answer the central question that this movie raises: would it have been better served as an episode of NextGen?

It’s a skin-stretchingly good time in Episode 79 of Trek Geeks–beam aboard, won’t you?
