Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast
54: Kirk’s Joker

Khan-mentary 3: Into Darkness Commentary.

It's finally time for the last part in our commentary series on everyone's favorite bad guy, Khan! In Khan-mentary 3, John Tenuto joins Mike and Drew to talk about Star Trek Into Darkness! We talk about how much the writers of this film may have pulled from early drafts of Wrath of Khan besides the obvious bits, whether the casting and subsequent secrecy of Khan drew unnecessary criticism, and if there's more to the movie than a series of action scenes.

53: When In Doubt, Throw It Out

Creating The Standard Orbit Canon: Season One.

There’s a lot of Star Trek out there that doesn’t really fit into the wider continuity. What if you could focus on only the episodes that just help tell the story of Star Trek? In this episode of Standard Orbit, Mike and Drew conduct an editing exercise in which we go through Season One of The Original Series and figure out what we think really needs to be there in order to create the “Standard Orbit Canon.” No episode is automatically safe, each one must stand our test of continuity, play an important role in the future of Star Trek, and eventually lead to the finale of The Original Series, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

52: Klingon Drill Bits

Klingons in TOS.

If there was ever a big bad guy for The Original Series, it was the Klingons. Devious and scheming, the TOS Klingons were always trying to undermine the Federation, even into the movies. In this episode of Standard Orbit, Mike and Drew attempt to understand these villains and how they change throughout the years. Listen to find out how far the Cold War analogy goes, and how proprietary their screws may be.
