Let’s be honest, a lot of podcasts have talked about Star Trek’s second pilot “Where No Man Has Gone Before”. But don’t worry! We’ve got our own fresh take on the classic Gary Mitchell episode, especially since this is Jeremy’s first viewing! We also announce our new format going forward that will make covering classic Trek a little smoother and hopefully more fun.

Join us next week for our first episode in the all new format when we review City on the Edge of Forever and The Alternative Factor!

How do you feel about “Where No Man Has Gone Before”? Do you think Gary Mitchell makes a solid antagonist?

RR27: Where Gary Mitchell Has Gone Before

RR26: Captain Pike & The Cage

We kick off our TOS watch with the very first episode of Star Trek ever made, The Cage. This episode, which did not air in its full form until the 1980s, includes a different Captain, a different First Officer, a different doctor, and a fairly different tone when compared to the test of The Original Series. We are introduced to Captain Pike, played by the late Jeffrey Hunter, who leads this crew of the USS Enterprise. The Cage stands as a monument to what Gene Roddenberry initially wanted Star Trek to become and this week, we talk about it in all of its glory and failings.

If The Cage and Captain Pike are not your thing, join us next week for the second pilot, Where No Man Has Gone Before!

RR26: Captain Pike & The Cage

RR25: Section 31, Obsidian Order, and Tal Shiar

With all three hosts back in the studio for the first time in over month, Greg, Jeremy, and Derreck sit down to talk about Star Trek’s most secret and covert organizations, Section 31, the Obsidian Order, and the Tal Shiar. Who are these organizations? Well, three of the galaxy’s biggest groups, the Federation, Cardassian Union, and Romulan Empire each created a convert special forces organization that works, sometimes, completely outside their own laws in an attempt to sway the fates to their people. We dive into the details, when these organizations first formed, their appearances in TV and film, and some of what Section 31 is doing on Star Trek: Discovery.

Plus, we talk about some of the Star Trek: Discovery casting including the man who will step into the role of Captain Pike in Season 2.

RR25: Section 31, Obsidian Order, and Tal Shiar

RR24: The Undiscovered Country

While our show might be best in the original Klingon, Jeremy and I decide to take a stab at reviewing the sixth and final original series cast Star Trek film, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. The big Trek Cold War movie pits Kirk and the Enterprise against an invisible and unknown adversary right at a pivotal moment peace between the Klingon Empire and the Federation is being forged. Can the Enterprise prevail? Where is Sulu? And how much Romulan Ale is too much?

Plus, we talk about some of the Star Trek: Discovery news out of Wondercon including a special deleted scene from the season 1 finale featuring Georgiou and Section 31.

How do you feel about Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country? Where does it land in your Star Trek film ranking? Was it an appropriate send-off for the original series crew?

RR24: The Undiscovered Country

RR23: Star Trek – The Final Frontier Review

What does God need with a Starship? Go climb a rock! And don’t forget to tell your friends about your siblings. Greg and Jeremy tackle what is widely considered to be the worst original cast Star Trek film, if not the worst of them all, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. It’s got mountain climbing, camping, a jail break, a fan dance, and Spock’s previously unknown brother… that’s right, Burnham wasn’t the first missing sibling.

RR23: Star Trek – The Final Frontier Review

RR22: Controversy in Star Trek

Star Trek has been around for over 50 years. We have nearly 750 episodes across six… maybe even seven (yeah, I’m looking at you The Animated Series) shows. Sure, there’s been some issues with consistency and canon, but there’s also been some highly controversial moments both from episodes themselves and behind the scenes action. This, Greg and Derreck take a break from Discovery and the movies to talk about controversy in Star Trek. With Jeremy getting setup on the West Coast, we’ll return to our movie re-watch when he has some Internet.

Now, what makes something controversial? Well, we cover episode themes and content that perhaps turned broadcasting companies away from airing episodes, or ones that prompted fans to call up the network to complain. We also discuss some that even made the actors upset. But that’s not all. We talk about issues between certain actors and overarching concepts that didn’t quite pan out the way we all would have hoped.

Since we’ve been talking Discovery a lot recently, we do not discuss the new series in this episode. But trust us. We’ll be back for a follow-up episode.

How do you feel about our Star Trek controversies? Which ones should we talk about in Part 2?

All three hosts return to discuss Star Trek: Discovery Episode 14 “The War Without, the War Within”!

What did you think of “The War Without, the War Within”? Is Discovery hitting the right cylinders for you? Do you think Emperor Georgiou will fit in? Have we seen the last of Voq?

RR19: The Georgiou Within, the Saru Without

RR18: What’s Lorca’s is Saru’s

This week, Greg and Jeremy go it alone to discuss Star Trek: Discovery Episode 13 “What’s Past is Prologue”. Derreck is on an away mission but there’s plenty to discuss like Lorca’s ruthlessness, Saru captaining the Discovery, the possibility of Lorca wanting to eat Saru, and just how action-packed Discovery is compared to the previous Star Trek series.

What did you think of “What’s Past is Prologue”? Is Discovery hitting the right cylinders for you? What do you think of the Mirror Universe story arc? Are you sold on the Lorca reveal? Do you think Saru will remain captain of the Discovery?
