AHEAD FULL, MR. CRUSHER!

It is time for another fun filled See-It or Skip-It episode from your two favorite Trek Geeks! This week we will tackle Season 4 of The Next Generation and we are joined by fellow podcaster and good friend David Duncan from The Synthaholics Podcast!  He will referee the discussion and make sure Bill and Dan stay on point!  Last SIoSI we had pretty high marks for Season 3.  Will Season 4 be just as recommended or will the percentages start to level out a bit?

In addition, the “Cosplay for Good” fundraising campaign is in full swing!  The Geeks are raising money to help the Nevada SPCA, the largest no kill animal shelter in the Las Vegas and have the latest update on their progress.  On the busiest day of STLV, they will be wearing skants from TNG Season 1 for a really great cause!  They are getting close to their goal of 1,000.00 but still need your help!

It’s all in Episode 108 of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast! This DEFINITELY is a “HEAR IT”!

Episode 95: See-It or Skip-It: TOS S1

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN!

Many of our listeners have made it clear that they LOVE our See-It or Skip-It episodes. We love doing them, so this week we decided to do something that may ruffle a few Tarkelian Bat feathers! We are going to give our take on Season 1 of the show that started it all: The Original Series!

How could ANYONE say that an episode of TOS is a Skip-It? Well you may be surprised to see what we think. Season 1 has a huge amount of episodes, 29 in all, and we will get the breakdown of each story-line, and give you our thoughts on why it is worth watching, or one that you can vaporize with your hand phaser!

To make things even more interesting, we are welcoming our good friend and Star Trek Continues Co-Producer, Kasey Shafsky to moderate the discussion! With three crazy TOS die hard fans involved in the discussion, things might get even more crazy than the Beta III Red Hour!

Plus, we have some amazing updates on the Deep Space 9 documentary “What We Left Behind,” a new Klingon beverage may soon be joining us on the podcast when we record, and a touching tribute to our beloved Scotty, Jimmy Doohan, who would have turned 97 this past week.

So, sit back, grab your glass of Tranya and enjoy Episode 95 of Trek Geeks–Your Independent Star Trek Podcast.
