In this episode of Trek News and Views, host Colin Higgins is joined by Donya Abramo, Steve Roberts, and Paul Wright to bring a British viewpoint to the discussion. We explore into the tidbits Fuller has revealed about the show, share out thoughts on the newest ship to grace our screens, and discuss the rumors and hearsay—which may or may not be true.

106: Exploring Discovery

105: Snow Globe in Space

Star Trek Beyond. This week TNV is fashionably late. With deference to listeners and staggered release time, TNV waited before delving into the latest incarnation of the Kelvin universe. Joining Colin on the show this week are Steve and first time guest Richard Marquez. In the show we find out that Steve is not such a fan of "Wrath of Khan" as most people, We heap praise on a movie that a lot of people had trepidations about, while also talking about the easter eggs and new aliens which appeared throughout the film. Oh and we also went on a tangent about the Enterprise incarnations. So without further ado we finally pull up a mic and talk about "Beyond." the third incarnation in what some term "JJ Verse." Chapters Intro (00:00:00) First impressions (00:04:10) Trek movie comparisons (00:08:09) The opening (00:17:12) Character moments (00:25:06) Yorktown (00:37:41) Beastie time (00:48:31) POTFM (01:08:36) End (01:09:50) Hosts Colin Higgins, Steve Roberts, and Drogyn Guest Richard Marq...

104: Star Trek Hula

HawaiiCon. Star Trek is the focus of many conventions, but how many can claim to take place on a volcanic island? In this episode of Trek News and Views, we talk to HawaiiCon Chief Executive Officer and Convention Chair GB Hajim about the event's unique and intimate atmosphere. Whether zip-lining, snorkeling with Jonathan Frakes, beach-bumming with Walter Koenig, or just hanging at the bar with Nichelle Nichols, an experience like no other awaits you at HawaiiCon, which takes place September 15-18, 2016, at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel and Bungalows on the big island of Hawai’i. And as a non-profit, the event puts its proceeds back into the community. Chapters Intro (00:00:00) What's Different about HawaiiCon? (00:01:15) The Attendees (00:03:55) The Components (00:06:44) Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek (00:07:50) Celebrating the Genre of Science Fiction (00:09:01) Snorkeling with Frakes (00:11:32) A Growing Con (00:15:55) Learning More (00:32:55) Hosts Colin Higgins, Stev...
