Trek Geeks #110: Badda Bing Badda Bang


STLV has arrived and we’re on our way to Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada!

To celebrate this annual pilgrimage, we’re taking a look at the 7th season episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, “Badda Bing Badda Bang!”

It’s a fun episode that channels the old-time Vegas feel with a great heist!

Speaking of heists: we’ll also take a look at the film that served as the inspiration for this fun holosuite caper, the 1960 classic, “Ocean’s 11” starring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., and the rest of the Rat Pack.

Plus, we’ll update you on the latest from Star Trek: Discovery including the programming for the upcoming series on the STLV schedule!

We’ll also have a final look at the Cosplay for Good tote board–and the news is amazing! Our great friends Heather and Jeff from Shore Leave have come up with a really creative way to help us raise money for the Nevada SPCA during STLV and we can’t wait to tell you about it!

It’s all in Episode 110 of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast, pally! Join us!
