  • Season 6, Episode 9 “Contagion" (TNG) with Pete the Retailer

    09/06/2021 Duración: 01h36min

    Jack in to the mainframe and defrag your RAMs this week as we come down with "Contagion"!Pete the Retailer of Star Wars Minute and ABCD: TOS returns to the show to discuss an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation that is part of the backbone of early TNG. When the USS Yamato is destroyed by a systems failure, Picard will have to take up the enigmatic search of her late captain. But when eerily similar problems begin affecting the Enterprise, the crew must race against time, the Romulans, and their own technology to escape the Yamato's fate!Everyone knows TNG didn't get "good" until Season 3, but a closer examination of early TNG (specifically Season 2) reveals that the strength in storytelling and characterization that would galvanize the series was already well underway. Solid entries like "Contagion", "Samaritan Snare", and "The Measure of a Man" continued Trek's reputation for satisfying sci-fi fare while the show was still growing into the classic series it would become. On this episode, we discuss th

  • Season 6, Episode 8 “The Infinite Vulcan" (TAS) with Ryan Britt

    26/05/2021 Duración: 01h22min

    Grab a spray can of your grandaddy's special pesticide as we marvel at "The Infinite Vulcan"!Writer Ryan Britt returns to the show this week to discuss an episode of Star Trek: The Animated Series that was written by the multi-talented Walter Koenig. When the Enterprise discovers a long-lost civilization of plant-like aliens, Spock is kidnapped and cloned by a Eugenics War scientist. Now, Kirk and crew must save their friend, stop the Phylosians' plans for galactic domination, and face . . . Spock 2!The Animated Series is an oft-overlooked wing of the Trek universe that nevertheless gave us a continuation of the five-year mission and a variety of charming and creative adventures for the crew of the Enterprise. Likewise, Walter Koenig rarely takes center stage in the world of Star Trek, but but his warmth and humor both brought Pavel Chekov to life and kept fans in stitches with his screenwriting and his non-fiction accounts of his life in Trek. On this episode, we discuss TAS as the underappreciated chapter o

  • Season 6, Episode 7 “Hollow Pursuits" (TNG) with Sasha Wood of Casually Comics

    12/05/2021 Duración: 01h12min

    We're rejecting reality and substituting our own as we enjoy “Hollow Pursuits"!Casually Comics host Sasha Wood joins the show this week to discuss an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation that introduces a character to the Trek universe who feels like an outsider but represents us perfectly. Lt. Barclay can only find solace in his holodeck recreations of his co-workers. When an invisible contaminant begins to infect the ship, he'll need to find the courage to step into the real world or his reality and his fantasies will both be destroyed!Sometimes the healthy, confident, and accomplished characters on Star Trek can feel unrelatable to our Earth-bound, replicator-free existence, but a character like Reginald Endicott Barclay III serves as the perfect avatar for many fans who also experience anxiety and detachment. In saving the ship and his crewmates, Barclay proves that a person's value isn't in their physical strength or their winning personality but in their unique viewpoints and their determination to

  • Season 6, Episode 6.5 Parks and Federation with Dr. David A. Banks

    06/05/2021 Duración: 01h20min

    Dr. David A. Banks is back on the show this week to help answer a question: what would an average town in the Federation look like? A future with no scarcity, no cars, and a Creole joint on every corner sounds great, but what happens to community when property and regionalism are irrelevant?I don't let my kids watch Mr. Beast's Ghost Kitchen.Check out David's website and listen to Ironweeds!http://www.davidabanks.orghttp://www.twitter.com/da_bankshttp://ironweeds.podbean.comCommunicate with us on Facebook and Twitter and the Just Enough Trope Discord!http://www.facebook.com/eistpodhttp://www.twitter.com/eistpodhttps://discord.gg/CTjdwwjhJoin our crew on Patreon!http://www.patreon.com/eistpodSubscribe to the show on iTunes!https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/enterprising-individuals/id1113165661?mt=2

  • Season 6, Episode 6 “Investigations" (VOY) with Asterios Kokkinos

    28/04/2021 Duración: 01h08min

    We're finding out how deep the rabbit hole goes this week as we conduct “Investigations"!Comedian, writer, and podcaster Asterios Kokkinos returns to the show to discuss an episode of Star Trek: Voyager that shakes up the Season 2 status quo. Neelix's talk show is the only place in the quadrant you can see juggling AND slides of the Klingon glottis. But when Tom Paris abruptly jumps ship, Neelix will follow a thread of mystery that leads to conspiracy and death!One of Voyager's greatest strengths as a show is in its characters and the actors that portray them. Being cooped up on a small ship in the middle of nowhere could have been an exercise in monotony, but Voyager was always adept at finding a new wrinkle of characterization to exploit for drama or comedy. On this episode, we discuss the way the Voyager mined its premise, the powerful charisma of the show's leads, the show's sometime rocky road to character development, the fandom split over Neelix, and why it's important that your characters like each ot

  • Season 6, Episode 5 “For the World Is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky" (TOS) with Greg Cox

    14/04/2021 Duración: 01h24min

    We're coming out of our shell this week as we explore “For the World Is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky"!Author Greg Cox returns to the show this week to discuss an episode of Star Trek: The Original Series that is full to bursting with innovative sci-fi ideas. The Enterprise has discovered an ancient civilization living in a hollow asteroid generation ship. Can Kirk and crew save the unknowing inhabitants from their fate or will they---and Dr. McCoy---see their journey end in destruction?The short run of the Original Series was marked by unbridled creativity, with many episodes presenting multiple, original premises that made the nascent universe of Trek feel living and lived in. Supported by the work of contemporary sci-fi authors and creators, Star Trek delivered prime-time escapism that challenged the existing paradigm of sci-fi television. On this episode, we discuss the way in which TOS reflected the unbridled creativity of '60s sci-fi, what makes a TOS story, layering multiple premises into a single

  • Season 6, Episode 4.5 Justin McLachlan of EOS 10

    08/04/2021 Duración: 46min

    This week, Justin McLachlan of EOS 10 joins the show to talk about acting, writing, and creating podcast sci-fi audio drama. In our discussion, we talk about the influence of his sci-fi and Trek fandom on his work, innovating on one of technology's oldest media, his book "Treknology", walking the DS9 Promenade, creating fiction in a hologram world, why the uncanny valley is so steep, directing (and protecting) actors, and whether or not humanity can learn from the lessons sci-fi teaches us.Fair Haven is brought to you by Squarespace!Follow Justin on Twitter and check out his podcast and book!https://www.twitter.com/justinmclachlanhttps://twitter.com/eos_10https://amzn.to/3s2NPmUhttp://planetm.io/galaxyqCommunicate with us on Facebook and Twitter and the Just Enough Trope Discord!http://www.facebook.com/eistpodhttp://www.twitter.com/eistpodhttps://discord.gg/CTjdwwjhJoin our crew on Patreon!http://www.patreon.com/eistpodSubscribe to the show on iTunes!https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/enterprising-individual

  • It's About Time 44 - "Future Boy" 10-06-57

    01/04/2021 Duración: 57min

    It's About Time is the Quantum Leap podcast whose mission is to pod right what once went wrong!This week, Gooey Fame of the Virtual Theater Podcast leaps in to talk about episode number 44, "Future Boy"! When Sam leaps onto the set of a 1950s sci-fi show, he meets the time-travelling hero Captain Galaxy. But when Galaxy's alter ego Moe begins to lose touch with reality, Sam will have to heal Moe's relationship with his daughter before the unthinkable occurs.This is a particularly poignant episode of QL, because Sam sees in Moe a kindred spirit, someone who is a dreamer and someone who is also curious about time travel. On the episode, we discuss the events of October 1957 including Sputnik, The Bridge on the River Kwai, alien abduction, and more. We also talk about using the blood code, subtle sci-fi elements, "Hey, it's that guy!", eccentricity vs. mental decline, having the "chops", drinking like a weirdo, Casey Jones, how Twitch replaced call-in shows, and a weird set of birthday coincidences.HOLY SMOKING

  • Season 6, Episode 4 “Sins of the Father" (TNG) with Fred Love

    31/03/2021 Duración: 01h11min

    Choose your cha'DIch and sharpen your kut'luch as we atone for the "Sins of the Father"!Writer and musician Fred Love returns to the show this week to discuss an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation that helped set the scene for decades of Klingon stories. When Worf discovers he has a long-lost brother, he must join him in defending their late father's honor. But when a conspiracy involving the Klingon High Council is uncovered, he'll have to give up his most treasured possession to protect his family: his honor!Klingon episodes of TNG and DS9 represent almost a sub-genre within the world of Star Trek, presenting an epic, near-Shakespearean narrative that runs parallel to the typical episodic fare. Thanks to the efforts of writers like Ronald D. Moore, Worf and the Klingons went from a mere curiosity to a vibrant and vital part of the ongoing story of Trek. On this episode, we discuss how "Sins" established the look and feel of Klingon installments, how they represented some of the franchise's first long

  • Season 6, Episode 3.5 "Star Trek Is..." with Gooey Fame of BackTrekking

    25/03/2021 Duración: 01h29min

    This week, Gooey Fame of BackTrekking is back on the program to act as a Trek archeologist as we unearth Gene Roddenberry's original pitch document, "Star Trek Is..."! The kernel of the idea that became the Trek we know was refined over time by many hands, but this is the raw ore of "Wagon Train to the Stars"! You'll hear tales of smart cows, skinned tyrannosaurs, dog men, and a whole lot of Christ metaphors! And Torx! All done on the cheap!Listen to BackTrekking to hear the stories behind your favorite Trek episodes!Pick up the books we mentioned on the episode on Amazon!Lost Voyages of Trek and the Next Generationhttps://amzn.to/3smoHsBStar Trek Phase II: The Lost Serieshttps://amzn.to/3ro3soGCommunicate with us on Facebook and Twitter and the Just Enough Trope Discord!http://www.facebook.com/eistpodhttp://www.twitter.com/eistpodhttps://discord.gg/CTjdwwjhJoin our crew on Patreon!http://www.patreon.com/eistpodSubscribe to the show on iTunes!https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/enterprising-individuals/id1113

  • Season 6, Episode 3 “The War Without, The War Within" (DIS) with Anika and Liz

    17/03/2021 Duración: 01h25min

    Hold on to yourself and get for battle as we fight "The War Without, The War Within"!Anika Dane and Liz Barr of Antimatter Pod are back on the show this week to discuss an episode of Star Trek: Discovery that sees our heroes wrestling with threats both physical and emotional. The crew of the Discovery has gone from the frying pan to the fire as they return from the Mirror Universe to a Federation shattered by war with the Klingons. Now, Cornwell and Sarek plan a desperate strike at the Klingon homeworld, while Burnham must face the consequences of saving Empress Georgiou *and* recrimination from an agonized Tyler!There is a consistent charge from ignorant fans that Discovery and all new Trek shows aren't really "Trek", but such accusations reveal in the accuser an ignorance not only of Disco but of recent history. All new Trek series . . . yes, even everyone's beloved DS9 . . . was excoriated by "real" fans on its initial release, but time and perspective always silence the naysayers. Discovery constantly sho

  • Season 6, Episode 2 “Memorial" (VOY) with James Swallow

    03/03/2021 Duración: 01h21min

    Prepare yourself for for the experience of someone else's lifetime because we're remembering "Memorial"!New York Times and Sunday Times best-selling author James Swallow returns the show this week to discuss an episode of Star Trek: Voyager that reminds us of the importance of memorializing tragedy. When certain crew members begin to experience flashbacks to an alien massacre, they wonder if they could have participated in its execution. But when Voyager discovers a strange monument memorializing the tragedy, Janeway will be forced to judge the value of another society's guilt and grief.The world of the Federation represents in many ways the magnification of the ethics we value today, principles like non-violence, non-interference, and respect for other cultures. But the men and women of Starfleet often find themselves serving as the arbiters of dilemmas they could have never predicted or prepared themselves for, and Starfleet captains specifically must make decisions about our interactions with alien culture

  • Season 6, Episode 1.5 More Mooney, More Problems

    25/02/2021 Duración: 01h01min

    This week, Darren Mooney of the Escapist is back for the second half of our discussion about all things Star Trek (and Doctor Who). On the show, we talk about writing pop culture commentary during the lockdown, the changing role of the Doctor in Doctor Who, how Trek's role has changed in society in the current era, how Enterprise wasn't *that* bad, and the end of "The End of History"!This episode of outtakes (and ALL of our outtakes) are available weekly on our Patreon, at patreon.com/eistpod!Follow Darren on Twitter and check out his site, The M0vie Blog!https://twitter.com/Darren_Mooneyhttps://www.them0vieblog.comCommunicate with us on Facebook and Twitter and the Just Enough Trope Discord!http://www.facebook.com/eistpodhttp://www.twitter.com/eistpodhttps://discord.gg/APk2cCyJoin our crew on Patreon!http://www.patreon.com/eistpodSubscribe to the show on iTunes!https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/enterprising-individuals/id1113165661?mt=2

  • Season 6, Episode 1 “The Immunity Syndrome" (TOS) with Darren Mooney

    18/02/2021 Duración: 01h29min

    Make sure you're caught up on your shots because we're studying "The Immunity Syndrome"!We're back for an all-new season as Darren Mooney of the Escapist joins the show to discuss an episode of Star Trek: The Original Series in which we're all, like, little microbes in the galaxy, man. A colossal organism from beyond the galaxy is devouring entire star systems and Kirk and crew will have to find a way to squash this bug before they become its next meal!Star Trek may present a stolid philosophy but it was engendered in a era of enormous political and social upheaval and the emotions and ideas present in the '60s often made their way to the screen in striking ways. Most of the writers and artists behind TOS probably never attended a happening or smoked acid but, nevertheless, the vibes of the decade found themselves translated into the wonders and fears that the crew of the Enterprise encountered on their journeys. On this episode, we discuss the trippy feel of TOS's third season, the tumultuous behind-the-scen
