Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast
94: Spotty Lighting

Behind The Scenes of Star Trek VI.

Everyone knows the story of the making of most of the Star Trek movies, but it usually seems like Star Trek VI gets lost in the shuffle. In this episode of Standard Orbit, Mike and Drew are joined by John Tenuto, who tells us the details of what happened in the making of the original crew's final solo mission. From abandoned concepts to the production to the people who worked behind the scenes, John lets us in on everything he knows. Also Mike asks "the nerdiest question ever asked on a Star Trek podcast" and gets it answered!
