Trek Geeks #102: Regeneration


Back in 2003, Enterprise aired an episode featuring the Borg!

It was a controversial move among fans. The Borg weren’t introduced until season 2 of Star Trek: The Next Generation–and event which wouldn’t happen in the timeline for another 175 years or more. Still, the episode was based on the events of First Contact, creating both a sequel and a prequel.

This week, Dan and Bill dig in on this episode! We’ll discuss some of Regeneration’s finer points and discuss some key questions:

  • Was this episode was a mistake?
  • Did the crew of the NX-01 defeat the Borg a bit too easily?
  • Does this episode work as either a sequel or a prequel?

Plus, we’ll announce a giveaway winner for our Brainstorm Gear and we’ll tell you how you can still get in on the “Star Trek Cats” giveaway still going on in our official Facebook Group, Camp Khitomer!

That, and we’ll announce our affiliate partnership with CBS All Access! If you plan on subscribing to that service to see Star Trek: Discovery later this year, you can now help us out directly!

There’s lots to talk about in Episode 102 of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast and we hope you’ll join us!
