#129 - WHO IS THE ULTIMATE STAR TREK FIGHTER?


Star Trek is an undeniably sophisticated and intellectually curious franchise rife with rich themes, layered concepts and fascinatingly multi-dimensional characters worth having thoughtful discussions about. That said, sometimes it's more fun to just drop all pretenses and have really goofy and nerdy debates. Such is the case this week as hosts Cam Smith and Tyler Orton, along with returning guest Tom Ball, don their hypothetical hats and argue over who would emerge victorious from a franchise battle royale. Would it be proud warrior Worf, unassumingly formidable Vulcans Spock, Tuvok or T'Pol, or perhaps a feisty wildcard like Kira or Kirk? Listen in as the trio ring the bell and talk their way through multiple rounds of astonishing matchups on their way to a show-stopping climactic bout.

#128 - BEST & WORST STAR TREK SEASONS


Okay folks, time to abandon the light-hearted topics for now and get down to real brass tacks; what are the greatest seasons in Star Trek's rich history, and which ones failed to connect? This week hosts Cam Smith and Tyler Orton take on the Herculean task of determining which series dominated and which floundered, beginning with inaugural seasons and working year by year all the way to the grand finale. How do TOS's astonishing first two seasons hold up, or Deep Space Nine's slam-bang Dominion War arc? And what can be said for TNG's rocky launch? Listen in for what is sure to be a debate-sparking podcast hour!

#127 - BEST & WORST STAR TREK FLINGS OF THE WEEK


As nice as it is to swoon over enduring Trek unions like Riker and Troi or Tom and B'Elanna, what about those spicy short-lived affairs that burnt brightly if only for a moment? In celebration of Valentine's Day 2017, hosts Cam Smith and Tyler Orton are on hand with their picks for the franchise's finest and direst single episode love stories. From the highs of Picard and Daren's musical connection and Kirk's tragic encounter with Edith Keeler, to the miserable lows of Harry Kim's post-coital bioluminescent affliction, the duo honor the episodes that serve as both a warm tribute to the holiday, as well as an uncomfortable affront. Plus, as a special value bonus, the Subspace crew and their witty band of fellow Vegas 2016 attendees reveal their Star Trek crushes!
