Trek Geeks #119: The Discovery Social Media Microscope


This week on Your Independent Star Trek Podcast, we examine some of the most common complaints on Social Media regarding Star Trek: Discovery.

DSC is the first new Star Trek series in the age of Facebook, Twitter, and other social sites and it’s been the subject of a lot of posts.

We’ll look at the most commonly repeated complaints and break down why they’re absurd. It’s like Buzzword Bingo for whining and we’re going to sort through the noise.

It’s a discussion you won’t want to miss!


We can’t thank FIVE YEAR MISSION enough. We are truly grateful to them for allowing us to use their music for every episode of Trek Geeks. You really should check them out–they’re writing and recording one original song for each episode of the classic Star Trek series from the 1960’s.

Warp on over to their website at and check out all of their fantastic albums! You can hear them all: Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, The Trouble with Tribbles, and of course, the amazing Spock’s Brain! Plus, they’re wrapping up Year 4 right now!

Please show them some support and download all their music!
