Episode 158: Podcasting 101 from Northeast Trek Con


Dan was a bit under the weather last week, so we had to reschedule the episode we had planned for this week. We promise to bring it to you soon! As a result, we bring you the audio from our panel at Northeast Trek Con about podcasting and getting into this medium!

Joining us on this panel are Sue Kisenwether from Women at Warp, Brandon-Shea Mutala from Trek.FM’s Warp Five and Melodic Treks podcasts, and moderating is Ken Tripp from Trek.FM’s Standard Orbit!

Special thanks to Brandon-Shea Mutala for providing this audio!

We truly grateful to our friends FIVE YEAR MISSION for allowing us to use their music for every episode of Trek Geeks. They’re creating one song for every episode of TOS and their brand new album is amazing!

Get your copy of YEAR 4 right now over at and, while you’re at it, grab a copy of all their other fantastic albums: Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, The Trouble with Tribbles, and of course, Spock’s Brain! We know you’ll become just as big a 5YM fan as we are, so what are you waiting for?

Please show them some support and download all their music!


Episode 96: Star Trek Generations


The passing of the baton.

In 1994, Paramount debuted the first of the movies to feature the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation. It would serve as a bridge for the two generations of the franchise and do so in epic fashion!

…but did it?

Joining us to talk about this seventh Star Trek film is our friend Brandon-Shea Mutala from Trek.FM! He’s the host of Melodic Treks and the co-host of Warp 5–and Generations is his favorite TNG movie!

Sadly, Brandon is outnumbered: Bill and Dan don’t count this film among their favorites. We’ll discuss the plot elements and the areas that we thought the film could have improved on, and we’ll debate the personal Nexuses (Nexii??) for Kirk and Picard and whether they fit the characters.

Plus, lots of Star Trek news on the DS9 Documentary and a new release of the ST:TMP soundtrack on vinyl! Enter the Nexus with us and Episode 96 of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast!  MAKE IT SO!


Five Year MissionWe can’t thank FIVE YEAR MISSION enough. We are truly grateful to them for allowing us to use their music for every episode of Trek Geeks.

Supplemental #5: STLV50 Podcast Summit


SE005This will be an episode of Trek Geeks unlike any other!

Why is that you ask? Well, that’s because it’s largely hosted by two amazing podcasters! (Well, OK…ONE amazing podcaster and also John Champion.)

Return with us now to the Sunday of STLV50! Dan was off getting his DS9-themed tattoo and Bill was one of the invited panelists on the Roddenberry Stage for the Podcasting Summit, hosted by Mission Log!

Eight Star Trek podcasts were represented to talk about the focus of their respective shows, the challenges and rewards of podcasting, and how they determine success among other topics.

We can’t thank the folks at Roddenberry Entertainment enough for allowing us to share the stage with so many amazing people and for making this audio available. It was a true honor to be included with such amazing talent.

We definitely encourage you to check out the podcasts of the assembled panel at their links below:
