William Shatner

Episode 87: Shatnermas!

CELEBRATING WILLIAM SHATNER

With Star Trek’s 50th Anniversary Year coming to an end, what better way to close it out than to look at the career of one of Trek’s central figures?

It’s undeniable that William Shatner has had an amazing career and done so many amazing things that we think he deserves his own holiday!

Back in 2009, Bill declared the first-ever Shatnermas on his Facebook page and now, he and Dan have turned this celebration into an eight day affair and reintroducing it on the podcast!

They’ve each selected one clip for each day of Shatnermas. Which ones did they pick?  Listen in to find out!

There are so many great clips to celebrate the long career of The Shat–which ones are your favorites??

Plus, we’ll talk some news and we’ll have a special message for Terry Farrell all in Episode 87 of the Trek Geeks Podcast!

Episode 66: The Omega Glory

Ep 66 - The Omega Glory

AY PLEGI IANECTU FLAGGEN

As we in the United States celebrate Independence Day on July 4th, we thought this would be PERFECT time to discuss The Original Series episode “The Omega Glory.”

Bill and Dan will give a run down of the episode, discuss what works and what doesn’t work, as well as what they like and don’t like.

Also, no discussion about TOS can go without Dan attempting to portray Captain Kirk, and this episode may have the most “Shatneriffic” speech in Trek history!  Will Dan be up for the challenge?

Plus, in Star Trek news, an old friend returns to the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C for permanent display – and she looks BEAUTIFUL, Bryan Fuller has some interesting tidbits on the new Star Trek series, the Bluetooth device of the ages is now available, Mega Bloks releases the HUGE Starship Enterprise model on July 22nd, and Van Citters speaks (and we love what he says)!

We may even sneak in a couple of surprises!  It is all here in Episode 66: The Omega Glory!
