Trek Geeks #90: Broken Bow


This week, Trek Geeks is back and we’re celebrating our second birthday! We figured what better way to celebrate than to take a closer look at one of the best pilots of all the Trek shows!

“Enterprise” (without the “Star Trek”) premiered in 2001 and it’s first episode, “Broken Bow,” took us back to a time before Kirk and Spock.

We’ll take a look at this episode and discuss it’s central themes, as well as some of the things that we think make it outstanding. We’ll also examine some of the things that this episode might not have done as well as perhaps it could have.

In addition, we’ll reveal the results of our Camp Khitomer poll on this episode and you’ll see what kind of ranking our Campers give this series pilot!

Plus, lots of Star Trek: Discovery news and some unexpected developments in the Axanar case—it’s all in Episode 90 0f Your Independent Star Trek Podcast!
