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 78: Recasting DS9

NEW FACES FOR BELOVED CHARACTERS

Recasting DS9This past Spring, we asked the members of our Camp Khitomer group on Facebook to send us their questions for an “Ask Us Anything” episode!

Their questions were fantastic, but there was one we thought could truly be its own episode–we were asked to pick a series and recast the characters with different actors.

Challenge accepted!

This week we’ll recast our favorite series, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, with an all new set of actors–and some of the selections may just surprise you!

Plus, we’ll update you on the latest Blu-Ray release in the Star Trek universe and discuss a wonderful essay that highlighted our Trek50 episode!

We hope you’ll join us for an entertaining discussion this week on the Trek Geeks Podcast!

Episode 63: See-It or Skip-It: TAS

Star Trek The Animated SeriesCROSS-OVER!

We’re back with another episode of See-It or Skip-It this week, but this time we’re taking on an entire series–but this time, it’s something very different!

Star Trek: The Animated Series ran for 22 episodes between 1973 and 1974 on Saturday mornings, and it’s one of the most debated and contested entries in the Star Trek universe.  Jeff Hulit from The Tricorder Transmissions moderates the discussion as Dan and Bill give their vote on each episode from Star Trek: The Animated Series.  Plus, they’ll each answer the question on whether or not TAS is part of Star Trek canon!

It’s an…wait for it…animated discussion this week on Trek Geeks and we hope you’ll join us!

Many thanks to Kail Tescar from StarTrekAnimated.com for his cover art for the podcast this week!
