    Singer/songwriter and activist Tae Phoenix joins the show this week to talk about political activism, protesting, and Star Trek. On the episode, we discuss what protesting looks like in the Federation, the unfathomable empathy of Trek characters, staring down the barrel of history, finding (or lacking) a moral center, scaling the helping impulse to systemic issues, conservative Trek fans, socialism saving Quark's, using genre spaces to explore social injustice, Sisko explaining Reaganomics, Tae pitches two cool new Trek series, and Kal achieves a new level of depressed sighing!WARNING: THIS ADULT DISCUSSION CONTAINS ADULT LANGUAGE AND IS 30% COOLER FOR ITAccept your mission and sign up for Trek the Vote!http://trekthe.votehttps://twitter.com/trekthevotehttps://www.facebook.com/trekthevoteFollow Tae on Twitter and experience her music!https://twitter.com/taephoenixhttp://taephoenix.bandcamp.comhttp://taephoenix.comCommunicate with us on Facebook and Twitter and the Just Enough Trope Discord!http://www.facebook

    Season 5, Episode 16 “Similitude" (ENT) with Jason Inman

    23/09/2020 Duración: 01h19min

    Get ready to make an impossible choice this week as we examine "Similitude"!Writer, producer, and podcast host Jason Inman joins the show this week to discuss an episode of Enterprise that pushes the crew of the NX-01 to the breaking point. The ship becomes mired in the Delphic Expanse and Trip is fatally wounded in an engineering accident. When Phlox creates a "disposable" copy of Enterprise's engineer, Archer will have to make the ultimate choice between his friend and his mission!Enterprise (*just* Enterprise) was short-lived in comparison to other Trek series, but it stands shoulder to shoulder with them in terms of the depth of its characters and the strength of its premise. It presented us with heroes that lacked the invulnerability of 24th century technology and the certitude of the Untied Federation of Planets. More than that, it charted the path of Starfleet from eager, artless explorers to honed and seasoned protectors of life in the galaxy and it proved that there was still life left in sci-fi's gr

    Season 5, Episode 15 “Favorite Son" (VOY) with Dr. Mohamed Noor

    09/09/2020 Duración: 59min

    Try to resist the siren call this week as we get tied up in "Favorite Son"!Duke University Dean of Natural Sciences and Star Trek science consultant Dr. Mohamed Noor returns to the show this week to discuss an episode of Star Trek: Voyager that proves Trek can be educational even when the science is bad. The ship discovers a planet of beautiful women who are eager to welcome Harry "home". Will Voyager's pluckiest ensign learn the truth about his heritage before it's too late or will he be consumed by his sinister new brides?In the interest of good storytelling, Trek often prioritizes the "fi" over the "sci" in sci-fi. However, Trek has always been concerned with exploring the story potential of real-world physics and biology, often incorporating contemporary discoveries and theory into its scenarios. Even when they get the facts wrong or new discoveries are made, Trek's focus on scholarship and the sciences has inspired countless viewers to examine the world more scientifically or to become scientists themsel

    This week, comedy writer JM McNab joins the show to talk about comedy in Star Trek and why seeking out new life isn't always a laugh riot. During the discussion, we talk about letting the air out of the franchise, what constitutes "punching down", being a fish out of '50s water, the loving parody of "Chief O'Brien At Work", Planet Scotland, Sh*t My Captain Says, open mic night in the mess hall, "Tea, Earl Grey, Hot Take", and whether or not Bev's sex ghost holds a cure for cancer!The clown can stay but the Ferengi in the gorilla suit has to go!Listen to JM's podcast "Rewatchability" and check out his other work!http://www.rewatchability.com/https://www.cracked.com/members/keatonbrows/http://www.twitter.com/jmmcnabagainhttps://www.iheart.com/podcast/105-the-daily-zeitgeist-28516718/Here's some links to what we discussed on the show:Star Trek Experiencehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SDMk8DO4wJ4Riker's software commercial (and grin gif source)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SN6mp5hVSScTNG IS AVAILABLE ON VHS!!!

    Pull on your worst sweater and get ready to save the day again as we play "The Game"!New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Catherynne M. Valente returns to the show this week to discuss an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation that gives the Wesley Crusher we didn't know we wanted. A new pleasure-inducing video game is quickly becoming everyone's favorite shipboard pastime. But when the game is revealed to be a sinister plot to take over the Federation, Wesley and Robin will have to outwit the adults take back the ship!Wesley Crusher may be everyone's favorite Trek punching bag, but in reality he's one of the franchise's most interesting characters. For a show that's all about going boldly, we meet him at an age of uncertainty and fear and we see him grow into a character with his own self-created sense of moral integrity. He's someone with all the gifts of the Federation's best citizens, and yet he bravely rejects the path that he seems destined to take, military service for an organization who

    Season 5, Episode 13 “The Void" (VOY) with Dr. Erin Macdonald

    13/08/2020 Duración: 01h09min

    Hold tight to what's yours as we examine the "The Void"!Astrophysicist, science consultant, and voice actress Dr. Erin Macdonald returns to the show this week to discuss an episode of Star Trek: Voyager that reaffirms the crew's commitment to the ideal of the Federation. When the Voyager becomes trapped in a pocket dimension, she's set upon by desperate scavengers. But, Captain Janeway hatches a plan to turn enemies into allies and makes a last-ditch attempt to get her crew back to normal space!Voyager's most important theme was the idea that, no matter the obstacle or the desperateness of the scenario, cooperation (and not competition) was always the best solution. Throughout their journey through the Delta Quadrant, the crew of Voyager was often tempted to take the easy route, to exploit other societies to achieve their goal of finally getting home, but their dedication to the principles of the Federation, the tenets of peaceful coexistence and benevolence over belligerence, was always their greatest streng

    Season 5, Episode 12 “Starship Mine" (TNG) with Ryan Britt

    29/07/2020 Duración: 01h01min

    Saddle up because we've got to take back "Starship Mine"!Writer, editor, and educator Ryan Britt joins the show this week to discuss an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation that blends comedy gold with action thrills! The Enterprise is in drydock for a baryon sweep and the crew is scheduled for a little R&R. But when terrorists take over the defenseless ship, Picard must become a one-man army to keep them from obtaining deadly trilithium! One of Trek's greatest strengths is its ability to artfully slide between genres and tones, and this episode is a clinic in the franchise's flexibility. It contains some of Trek's best sly comedic moments and in its "Die Hard" sub-plot, it prefigures the action spectacle of the TNG films, the reboot films, and the Trek series of the new millennium. On this episode, we talk about Trek's facility with pastiche and homage, the brilliance of Trek's subdued world-building, putting Federation morals to the test, the oft-forgotten violence of early Trek, the disapproval of
