WE HAVE ‘TOS’ ON THE BRAIN! (BRAIN AND BRAIN – WHAT IS BRAIN??)
It’s really no surprise that we are still riding high from our visit to the Star Trek Continues set recently. As a result of being immersed in the TOS Universe for several days, we felt it was only fitting to dedicate Episode 40 of the Trek Geeks Podcast to The Original Series.
We will mix it up a bit by talking about things that we love as well as things that we hate about Kirk’s crew. First we will discuss the characters from the Original Series that we truly despised for one reason or another. Which characters, whether special guests or series regulars that just got under our skin, and why? Then, as if were hit by the spores of Omicron Ceti III we delve into our most loved episodes of TOS! You may be surprised. As we like to say, the “Champion Rule” dictates that someone’s most loved episode is someone else’s most hated!
Also, our friends at Star Trek Continues had a lot of news this past week. We will discuss the ribbon cutting ceremony they had for the new Engine Room, the announced title of Episode 6, the surprise visit of the one and only Rod Roddenberry to the set (yes we did get to meet him) and what it felt like for us when STC posted a pic of us with the Captain himself on their official Facebook page!
In addition we will talk about the latest levels of the Star Trek Renegades fundraiser and whether or not we think they will meet there goal. With just days to go at the time of recording, they are close, but are they close enough?
Plus, a short, fan made teaser for Star Trek Deep Space 9 on Blue Ray recently started getting some traction on the web. We will discuss why one of us is very excited about the possibility, while the other thinks is completely meaningless!
All this, plus the triumphant return of a special all TOS version of Stump The Geek in this week’s all-new episode of Trek Geeks – A Star Trek Podcast.
Since recording this episode, Star Trek Renegades surpassed their crowdfunding goal of $350,000.00 with approximately 32 hours to go in the campaign. How quickly things can change in less than a day!
