Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast

Standard Orbit 141: Red Shirt Starship

The Ships of TOS Prime Timeline TV and Movies

In this episode of Standard Orbit, Ken and Zach give the listeners what they want...starship talk! After our discussion thread on starship designs lit up the Babel Conference we decided it called for a podcast or two on the subject.

From the Enterprise's deflector dish and nacelles, the workhorse Miranda and Excelsior class, alien Birds-of-Prey and battle cruisers, and even DY-100 sleeper ships, we're talking the ships of TOS and the TOS movies. Buckle up with your arm rests and settle in for almost two hours of starship minutia!
