In this very special Film Flashback bonus episode hosts Cam Smith and Tyler Orton, regrettably down one Benjamin Yong, take a long, in-depth look at 1979's polarizing STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE. What still works and what doesn't? Where does the film rank in the franchise's movie canon? And what scene does one host call out as being among his favorite love scenes of all time? All these questions are answered and so, so much more, in the first entry of this ongoing series of grade-A supplemental shows focusing on cinematic TREK.

Incoming Special Transmission!

The three of us are currently enjoying the sweet, sweet tranquility of our monthly break, so we're not back to our regular schedule quite yet.

Alas, we still feel obligated to inform you that we bring news both good and bad.

Let's start with the bad: unfortunately, due to scheduling issues, we're going to be a bit late with our standard episode rotation this month. We've got fantastic topics in store, but they'll be in the hopper a little longer than originally anticipated.

However, fear not, there will be a special bonus retrospective on 1979's Star Trek: The Motion Picture landing on Sunday. So start looking forward to that very special event!

In the meantime, to tide y'all over, here's yet another glorious podcast logo featuring To'Myna finally meeting her match in the Mirror Universe! And please continue sending us questions and audio clips (30-60 seconds). We love listening to them, playing them on the show and bickering amongst ourselves whether we agree or not.
Hit us up at or on Twitter.
Cam Smith, Benjamin Yong and  Tyler Orton will  return!
And if you're behind, catch up by downloading our previous shows on iTunes!

In this "What If..."-tastic installment hosts Cam Smith, Benjamin Yong and Tyler Orton dive headlong into every single series in the franchise in order to determine which guest stars deserved to be promoted to full time duty, and who among the main casts deserved demotion to the Jeffries tubes. Expect plenty of odd and controversial choices, as well as lofty praise for the DS9 character least likely to receive lofty praise.

Hosts Cam Smith, Benjamin Yong and Tyler Orton return in their most morbid episode ever, honoring beloved Trek figures who shuffled off the mortal coil with dignify and style, while also mourning those who left on a sour, unsatisfying note. In between these solemn reflections, the trio also express their appreciation for a pair of unforgettable Cardassians and ponder the mystery of the franchise's inevitable next TV incarnation.
