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!

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 55: The Worst of Times

“IT WAS THE WORST OF TIMES…Ep 55 - The Worst of Times

…it was the worst of times.  Message, Spock?”

“None that I am conscious of, except of course, these movies sucked.  Surely, the worst of times.”

This week on Trek Geeks, Dan and Bill tackle what they think are the worst of the Star Trek movies!

It isn’t always rainbows and unicorns and eternal happiness when it comes to good Trek stories and today’s discussion focuses on the the ones that they would both like to flush down the Trek toilet!

Once their lists have been revealed and discussed, it is THUNDERDOME time as they go head to head for the ultimate Star Trek Toilet Trophy for Worst Trek Film EVER!

Plus, from our friends at TrekNews.net, we can look forward to a new BluRay of ST:TWOK, a new ST:BEYONNND trailer, and some rumors about the new CBS ALL ACCESS Star Trek series, set for launch in January 2017.  Also, we have a special favor to ask of the listeners of our podcast–and you could win $25 as a result!

And what’s this?  A special message from Balok?  Well then, sit!  Be comfortable!

The conversation may be about the worst, but you will have the BEST time tuning into this week’s episode!
