115 - Workforce

Bill was watching BBC America recently and came across two Voyager episodes he'd never seen. It was the season 7 two-parter, "Workforce," in which the crew finds themselves kidnapped by an alien race and put to work in their industrial plants. Their memories have been altered and they have no memory of the life they know. We'll examine this episode in true Trek Geeks style and tell you the things we liked, as well as some of the things we didn't. Plus, we'll take a look at some central...

106 - Star Trek: Nemesis

"Can you learn to see in the dark, Captain?" - Shinzon It was a dark movie. Literally and figuratively. It ended up being the last of the Star Trek movies with the TNG cast. But was it a worthy finale?? This week, the Trek Geeks will give their take on Star Trek: Nemesis. Their memories of the 2002 film are not as positive as other feature films, and they will jump right into the reasons why this was a less than stellar big screen exit for Picard and his crew.

105 - Two Guys One Trek

We listen to a lot of podcasts. One of the ones we found last year was a fast-paced and energetic show called, "Two Guys One Trek." It's the journey of two friends through TOS: one who has seen it before, and the other who had seen every Trek series BUT the original. They think that Trek is best watched with a friend and we love going on this journey with them. It's a fresh and unique perspective on the series that started it all--and it's so much fun! They've just released their entire...

102 - Regeneration

Back in 2003, Enterprise aired an episode featuring the Borg! It was a controversial move among fans.

Still, the episode was based on the events of First Contact, creating both a sequel and a prequel. This week, Dan and Bill dig in on this episode!

SE010 - Geek the Stump -- AGAIN!

A message from Dan Davidson, co-host of Trek Geeks: YOUR Independent Star Trek Podcast "Not too long ago, oh about the time the Patriots were hoisting their 5th Lombardi Trophy, my illustrious Executive Producer decided to subject me to a "Superbowl Sized" Stump the Geek episode.
