Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast
103: A Who’s Who Of Seventies Filmmaking

Unmade: Planet Of The Titans.

There are so many unmade Star Trek projects out there, it's good to have a source to help us sort them out. In this episode of Standard Orbit, Mike and Drew are joined by "Knowledgeable Person Of Star Trek" John Tenuto to continue our miniseries on the post-TOS era. While there isn't an available script out there for "Planet of the Titans", there's plenty of behind the scenes information. Find out how George Lucas was involved in pre-production, who all was asked to direct, and how the story related to a similarly titled sci-fi movie.

101: The Boom of Syndication

Post-TOS with Marc Cushman.

Just because The Original Series ended didn't mean the story was over. In this episode of Standard Orbit, Mike and Drew have Marc Cushman, author of the "These Are The Voyages" book series, on to give us hints about what happened in the 70's for our intrepid crew. From Paramount not being able to get a fourth network off the ground to NBC begging for more Star Trek to how on earth a Saturday morning cartoon was able to get away with Spock drawing a pentagram on the floor so he can do magic(k), we cover all kinds of subjects on our way to The Next Generation.
