The 602 Club : 216: He's a Horcrux

Split. The kernel for what would become Split was actually present in the versions of Unbreakable's script, but it was excised because it just didn't work together well in that movie and it would take Shyamalan sixteen years to craft the next chapter in his shared universe. In this episode of The 602 Club Matthew Rushing and Christy Morris talk about Split. We discuss our expectation, some research, the same universe, James McAvoy, more than human, Dr. Fletcher, Casey, uncomfortable humor,...

Standard Orbit : 252: He's Weird, Whatever

Standard Orbit 252: He's Weird, Whatever Spock's Emotional Moments. For someone who claimed to be emotionless and that emotions were "alien" to him, Spock certainly became "emotionally compromised" quite frequently over the years. This week on Standard Orbit hosts Ken Tripp, Zach Moore and Hayley Stoddart discuss Spock's emotional moments in The Original Series, the movies and the Kelvin Timeline. What's up with the smiling and shouting Spock of the pilot era? Does it count as being...


Meta Treks : 91: Get That Whale Some Gumbo

Equality and Equal Rights. Equality in the United Federation of Planets is often taken for granted, that alien life forms are entitled to the same rights, privileges, and opportunities as humans. But to which beings does this equality extend? Humanoids? Only sentient life forms? Intelligent androids? Whales? Nanites? And equality in what sense? Political equality? Moral equality? Equality under the law? Equality of opportunity? In this episode of Meta Treks, hosts Zachary Fruhling and Mike...
