Standard Orbit 221: Trek Movie Madness
The Wrath of Khan vs. First Contact.
Trek Madness is back by popular demand! In this episode of Standard Orbit, hosts Ken Tripp, Zach Moore, and Hayley Stoddart are joined by the hosts of Earl Grey to debate the best of the best of the Star Trek movies: The Wrath of Khan vs. First Contact!
Nine out of ten Trekkies on the street would agree that these two films are the best of their respective film franchises, so how does TOS' cream of the crop measure up to TNG's? Both feature themes of revenge, returning villains, epic space battles and memorable musical scores; we compare and contrast all this and much more in Trek Movie Madness!
