Earl Grey : 249: No Decontamination Gel

The Lost Episodes, Part 3. There are many scripts, script outlines, and episode and movie concepts that never made it onto the screen on The Next Generation. These lost episodes can provide a fascinating window into what might have been, what characters and concepts ended up being modified and used later, and into the behind-the-scenes writing process. In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Richard Marquez, Amy Nelson, and Justin Oser discuss two never-produced episodes of seasons one and...

Warp Five : 168: Patty Sue

Alternate Crew. When the NX-01 Enterprise was completed, Starfleet knew that the first warp five-capable ship needed a crew who were at the top of their respective fields. This new class of starship would be traveling to places previously unseen by human eyes, and developing new relationships (and, sometimes, rivalries) with new species. The crew had to be not only extremely capable, but also adaptable, as they literally did not know what they would find beyond the boundaries of the Sol...

The 602 Club : 203: A Portrait of a Man

First Man. On May 25th, 1961 President John F. Kennedy gave us the impossible mission of going to the moon and in the decade that followed NASA would strive to complete this task before the USSR, who had beaten us in every other endeavor in the space race up to that point. In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by John Champion to talk about Damien Chazelle's First Man. We discuss the man behind the legend, adversity, "controversy", the space race, a visceral...

Literary Treks : 245: The "All Good Things" of Deep Space Nine

The War of the Prophets. Trapped 25 years in the future, the crew of the U.S.S. Defiant is faced with a future that is nearly unrecognizable. Only days away from Armageddon, the galaxy stands on a knife's edge. On one side, the Bajoran Ascendancy: a cult-like theocracy led by the Emissary of the "True Prophets": Weyoun.

Melodic Treks : 94: Do I Have the Job?

Cliff Eidelman Interview. Jerry Goldsmith created an epic and memorable theme when he composed the 1979 film Star Trek: The Motion Picture, a theme that would become synonymous with Star Trek due to its use as the main title for the hit television series Star Trek: The Next Generation. In 1989, the theme would be used again for the film Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. Given its popularity, many Trek fans were surprised when this theme did not greet them for the 25th anniversary film of...


The 602 Club : 202: BB-8's Like the Fonz

Star Wars Resistance. Over ten years ago Star Wars animation released The Clone Wars which introduced us to new characters and expand on the time period between Episodes II and III, it would be followed by Star Wars Rebels, that would do the same thing for the dark times between the Prequel and Original trilogies and now a new animated show has premiered to fill some of the gaps in the Sequel trilogy era.

Warp Five : 167: Massive Dictator

Writers' Room. Most Star Trek: Enterprise fans agree that the "Vulcan Trilogy" in season four is one of the best stories of the season, if not the series. There are, however, loose ends that some would like to have seen tied off. Did V'Las ever face a trial for his actions? Or did he escape to Romulus before judgment could be made and punishment carried out? In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Patrick Devlin and Brandi Jackola write a season five episode addressing the fate of the...


Primitive Culture : 40: On Screen!

2001: A Space Odyssey and Star Trek: The Motion Picture. When Captain Kirk and the crew of the USS Enterprise boldly went into cinemas in 1979, languid art-house pacing, an elegant orchestral score, and an encounter with things unfashionably alien led to a transformative, almost religious experience. Star Trek: The Motion Picture took its cue not so much from the colorful action extravaganza of Star Wars, which premiered two years earlier, but from 2001: A Space Odyssey, a film dating back...

The Skreeans are escaping oppression in the Gamma Quadrant and find themselves at DS9. If only they could settle on Bajor and get back to farming, just like their sacred texts have told them.
