Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast
75: A Fiftieth Anniversary Movie
Pitching Star Trek 13.

The 50th anniversary of Star Trek is coming up in 2016. We're also getting the next Star Trek movie that year. In this episode of Standard Orbit, Mike and Drew pitch their ideas for what they would do if they were making this historic movie. Whether the mission continues after or if this is the end of the trilogy, this movie needs to make a statement. What would your hosts want that statement to be? What other anniversary would it most resemble? And what makes a trilogy a trilogy anyway? Find out all this and the etymology of a surprising phrase in this episode!
