Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast

Episode 144: Across The Pond

Destination Star Trek Europe

Destination Star Trek Europe was held in Birmingham, England earlier this month, and friend of the podcast Tony Black has the report for us from across the pond.

William Shatner, George Takei, Walter Koenig and Christopher Lloyd were the headliners at this year's Destination celebrating the 50th anniversary of Star Trek. Tony recounts his experiences at the convention, the opening ceremony, the after party and more. We also have a some fun tangents on Star Trek audio books, the voice of Ted Cassidy, and uniforms!
