Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast
95: Holographic Girlfriend, Holographic Ale

The Next Generation: “Relics” with Earl Grey.

Sometimes in the run of a show, you pull out all the stops and have crazy guests from other shows. In this episode of Standard Orbit, Mike & Drew are joined by the time-shifted crew of Earl Grey to discuss the time-shifted Scotty in "Relics". Can Scotty survive in a world of technobabble? Did the TNG crew watch TOS, so that’s why they don’t seem to care about Scotty? Does the Holodeck have an “I Feel Lucky” button? Is “Relics” a secret backdoor pilot to a future UPN show? Find out all this and more in this overflowing episode!

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!

92: The Double Indemnity Of Star Trek

IDW Ongoing Comic Comparison: Untitled Gorn Comic.

Issue 24 of Star Trek Ongoing may not have a title, but it sure is the sequel to a video game no one played. In this episode of Standard Orbit, Mike and Drew discuss the comic that references a video game that contradicts both the second movie and the comic it is also a sequel to. The Gorn are back, and more peaceful than ever! What will JJ-Kirk do when he has to face off against the Gorn? Why are these Gorn from a different galaxy? And why do the hosts talk about Indy Hat Bashing? Find out in this battle-tastic episode!
