Trek Geeks #76: Embracing the Winds


Embracing the WindsAfter a one week hiatus, the Trek Geeks are back in their podcast chairs and ready to discuss the latest amazing episode from Star Trek Continues.

Episode 7 of this highly acclaimed fan production tackles a very interesting and controversial topic that began almost 50 years ago with the final episode of TOS, “Turnabout Intruder.”  In “Embracing the Winds,” we finally find out why female officers have never been in command of a constitution class starship!  Additionally, we see yet another ship–the U.S.S. Hood–fall prey to a mysterious anomaly.  We think you will agree that STC has once again given us an amazing episode filled with drama and awesome guest stars!

In addition to a spoiler-filled rundown of the plot, Dan and Bill discuss the myriad of Star Trek themed easter eggs in this episode and as always discuss whether or not it IS Star Trek!

Plus, there are lots of interesting news topics to discuss including the pushed back premier date of Star Trek Discovery to May 2017, the debut of Star Trek Online to Xbox One and PS4 consoles and we may even get to hear our beloved Majel Barrett as the computer voice in DSC and maybe even your mobile phone someday!

All this and more as Dan returns from Walt Disney World!  “Happiest Place on Earth?”  No way!  That’s right here, rejoining Bill in Episode 76 of the Trek Geeks Podcast!
