BONUS EPISODE 6 - "STAR TREK VI: THE UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY"

EPISODE 24 - "TIME FOR A COURT MARTIAL?"


For such a powerful and positive organization, Starfleet sure is lax when it comes to disciplining questionable acts committed by its key enlisted members. In this latest episode hosts Cam Smith and Tyler Orton call out some of the more egregious decisions made by beloved Trek characters and judge whether a court martial needed to be instituted. Should murdering a chancellor be frowned upon even if good ultimately comes from it? What about helping to corrupt an entire alien society in order to create "a balance of power?" We know where we stand on these particular issues, as well as the several others discussed in this jam-packed hour, so join in the fun and decide whether you agree or disagree!

Who doesn't love an homage or in-joke?! As Trek fans, is there anything better than being reminded of the treasured episodes and series of years past? Well, this week hosts Cam Smith and Tyler Orton strive to determine what separates fun, rewarding franchise call-back moments from the lazy, pandering ones that many of us still complain about. Why is the return of Montgomery Scott on The Next Generation so much more satisfying than, say, the countless winks in Into Darkness? Listen in and find out!

EPISODE 22 - "HAS STAR TREK FAILED FEMINISM?"


Since its inception Star Trek has been a vital progressive force for promoting racial diversity in film and television. But how has it truly fared at creating genuinely strong roles for women? This week hosts Cam Smith and Tyler Orton are joined by special guest Jarrah Hodge, the pop-culture blogger behind Trekkie Feminist, for an in-depth and comprehensive look at the evolution of female characters across the franchise's near-fifty year run. What have the writers and show-runners gotten right, and what have they gotten wrong? Which series has the best track record for positive representation? And how do we best make sense of episodes like "Angel One," "Bound" or "Turnabout Intruder?" This is one mission you don't want to miss, so listen in as we take an irreverent and hard question-filled look at Trek's rich and complex history.
 
For further information on women's roles behind-the-scenes, check out Jarrah's excellent posts highlighting the female writers, directors and other key creative players who have contributed to Trek's impressive legacy.
