While last Halloween was solely focused on the scary and fiendish, this year is all about enjoying the fun, colorful and theatrical aspects of the season! In this second spook-tacular holiday special, hosts Cam Smith and Tyler Orton grade Star Trek's many memorable examples of characters donning elaborate makeup and/or attire in order to complete a crucial mission. From Janeway's campy descent into serial-inspired silliness, to Kirk's hammy gangster act and Troi's badass Romulan make-over, we weigh in on each participant's commitment to transformation, as well as debate whether said disguise would bring home any awards at a rocking Halloween party costume contest. If ever there was a way to guarantee a fantastic thriller night, this is it!

Star Trek, bless its heart, doesn't have a spectacular track record when it comes to extended premieres. But does this hold true for what many consider the very best series? For this month's Two-Parter Throwback hosts Cam Smith, Tyler Orton and Benjamin Yong, along with returning guest Julia Dilworth, are travelling back to 1987 in order to take another exploratory spin around Farpoint on the inaugural journey of the ultra-slick Enterprise-D. Does the episode - which features not only the introduction of the new crew, but also the iconic Q - hold up as a solid sci-fi adventure? And how successful an introduction is it? For the answers to these burning these questions, as well as so many others, join in on this madcap audio journey filled with giant jellyfish romance, awkward Wesley hijinx, feelings of great joy and gratitude and, of course, bad Picard impressions!

While there are certainly always risks associated with being a member of Starfleet, it sure does seem like a key handful of individuals pay for their daring lifestyle of adventure and exploration far more than others. This week hosts Cam Smith and Tyler Orton examine four crucial franchise favorites who the creative team appeared to take boundless pleasure in running through the metaphorical ringer again and again. From falling victim to psychic assaults, cloning, unexpected alien impregnation and falling barrels, these unlucky four have been run through the gamut far more than most - raising the question as to whether their torture was part of a larger character goal or just plain old mean.

From almost it's very inception, television has been in the business of spin-offs. After all, what better way to guarantee ratings than by offering loyal audiences an opportunity to explore new facets of a beloved character? This week hosts Cam Smith and Tyler Orton put on their prospective show-runner hats and test the viability for potential new series based on Trek's brightest and boldest past stars. Over the course of this hour-long think-tank session, the two ponder the potential for further adventures featuring Riker, Worf, Seven of Nine and Kira, as well as accidentally stumble upon what may just be the franchise's very unlikely answer to Game of Thrones. Seriously.
