156 - Star Trek: Janeway

Star Trek: Voyager at 25"Star Trek: Picard" is the newest entry into the Trek franchise in 2020 - and this year also marks the 25th anniversary of "Star Trek: Voyager." The seven year saga arrived on the air waves on January 16, 1995 and introduced us to characters that we would long remember. The trio talks about their favorite characters, episodes, and moments that would ensure "Voyager" would remain a permanent part of the Trek legacy. As Seven continues her journey on "Picard," what other "Voyager" characters will continue to live on the screen?

The Star Trek Toys That Weren'tWith the beginning of 2020, the Star Trek franchise is exploding and will no doubt expand their merchandise in the coming year. But what about the Playmates line and all the toys that weren't made? The trio brainstorm what a Founder's Planet playset would be like, a floor mat Discovery bridge layout, and why would be happy with a simple Next Gen quarters for our existing toys. Let us know your idea for the toys that never were.

Trek 2020/Bynars. We all know that 2020 begins a new era for the Star Trek franchise. We will see the debut of new Trek series ("Star Trek: Picard" and "Star Trek: Lower Decks") and the continuation of "Star Trek: Discovery." The trio discuss what they are looking forward to the most and what questions they have. They also examine what little is known of the Bynar species, as introduced in the TNG episode "11001001." As Daniel asks, "Do they make sense?" Let us know any of your New Trek Resolutions for 20202.

In Remembrance: D.C. FontanaOne of Star Trek's brightest stars, Dorothy Catherine Fontana (1939-2019), left a lasting legacy for the franchise. Darren, Daniel, and Phillip pick their top D.C.-penned episodes of Trek and how they moved the series forward. From TOS to TAS to TNG and more, Fontana's left an imprint on Star Trek that will guide future generation of writers and showrunners.

Betazed Society. Star Trek: The Next Generation first introduced the telepathic alien race of Betazeds - and we never got much more from them. Certainly the Trois showed up in other Trek series, and an occasional Betazed character would pop up elsewhere. But viewers never learned all that much about the planet, its people, and the society. Daniel, Phillip, and Darren examine what a telepathic species would be like in the 24th century and how often one really has to be naked. What’s your favorite Betazed cultural aspect?

Galaxy Quest"The Best Star Trek Movie!"Whether you agree with that assessment about the 1999 film "Galaxy Quest," there's no denying its deep ties to the Star Trek franchise. Phillip, Darren, and Daniel look at how this movie made fun of Trek while also showing a deep appreciation to the fandom, before that was "cool." What are your favorite "Quest" lines?

Trek Tech Economic Destruction. Fans often speculate about the nature of the 24th century economy and society - but what would happen today? The trio looks at the various bits of Trek technology and how it would affect society if it was introduced today. How would phasers change things? Would transporters make cars obsolete? Would there be a gaming industry if we had Holodecks? Let us know what you think!

147 - Does Data Dream of Electronic Sheep

Requiem for Data. ​The death of Data in Star Trek: Nemesis remains controversial. Some see it as a logical end to his story. Others see it as a random checklist event that leaves a bitter after taste. No matter your opinion, fans know that Brent Spiner and his android character will be returning to the franchise in Star Trek: Picard. What form will it take? What has happened in the intervening years? Do we all acknowledge B4? Join the discussion as we dive into the legacy of Data’s death.
