It is a contest as old as Star Trek itself. OK, well maybe it's not THAT old. Once again, Dan Davidson will attempt to tame the behemoth that is Stump the Geek!

6/6/2018

Of all the relationships in Star Trek, perhaps none is as layered and complex as the one between Odo and Quark. On one side, you have the lawful Odo who is responsible for ensuring the safety of one of the Alpha Quadrant's most strategic locations. On the other, you have Ferengi bar owner Quark (he's *not* a barkeep) who seems to turn every situation into gray area with his dealings. It's an unlikely friendship and we'll dive in on it this week! Plus news, and an announcement from Dan...

Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country debuted in 1991 and it marked the end of the adventures from the cast of the original Star Trek. A whodunit with political overtones, this movie was a great success, leaving many wondering why it was the last movie with Kirk, Spock, McCoy and the rest of the Enterprise crew. It was a film that performed well during a disappointing year at the box office and was also the only Trek movie to win a Saturn Award for Best Science Fiction Film. This week,...
