Episode 80: The Ultimate Crew

WHOM WOULD YOU PICK?

The Ultimate CrewOne of the coolest ideas in Star Trek Timelines is the ability to have any single member of the Star Trek Universe as part of your crew.  We are talking ANY character from any series, ship, timeline, universe, etc.  That got us thinking.  Who would WE pick for our ULTIMATE Crew?  We break down all the main crew assignments in this “infinite possibilities episode”.  Heck, even waste extraction is discussed because Bill thinks that would be perfect for Dan!

In Star Trek news, perhaps one of the most EPIC and awkward pics in history was taken recently at Star Trek Destination Europe as almost two dozen Star Trek alums got together on the bridge of the Enterprise!

Also, time to fork over some quatloos or gold pressed latinum because the revised and expanded Star Trek Encyclopedia is now available and the reviews are overwhelmingly positive!

Finally, both Bill and Dan received some swag in the mail over the weekend.  What did they get and who is more excited?

It’s Episode 80 of Trek Geeks–beam aboard, won’t you?

Episode 59: The JJ-verse

The JJ-verse

LOTS OF LENS FLARE!

Ever since the reboot of Star Trek took place in 2009, there have been polarizing opinions on the so called “JJ-verse”  This week, Dan and Bill tackle this controversial topic and give their insights into what they like and what they don’t like about this alternate timeline.

It seems that the majority of people that don’t like this timeline are extremely vocal in how JJ Abrams “destroyed Star Trek”.  The Trek Geeks discuss those topics and bring up several facts about how these stories actually honor the original series on a variety of different levels!  Is everything in this universe perfect?  Heck no, and they discuss the things that rub them the wrong way, too.
