Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast

Star Trek Origins: Cloaking Device

In this episode of Standard Orbit, we launch into our second origins outline looking at the deployment and use of the cloaking device from its initial debut in Balance of Terror, to its evolution over the course of the franchise through The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine.

A game changing piece of technology, we explore how having the cloaking device adds such a huge tactical advantage to those who have it, try to understand the reasoning behind Starfleet not using it themselves (until the Dominion War) and its applications beyond starships such as personal cloaking tech and cloaked mines.

Standard Orbit 143: Right Click, Word Replacement

TNG as TOS. 

The early seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation get a bad rep, and are often criticized as feeling like an "extension of TOS" or "1960s TV in the 1980s." Right or wrong, good or bad, in this episode of Standard Orbit, Ken and Zach discuss a handful of season one TNG adventures that feel more at home on Kirk's Enterprise than Picard's.

The Naked Now, on TOS as originally planned? Angel One, would it be too progressive for the late 1960s? Too Short a Season, is it generic enough for any series? We'll Always Have Paris becoming I Left My Heart In San Francisco? We have a fun time pondering what these episodes could become with just a few uses of the word replacement tool. And stay tuned till the end to hear about our special iTunes giveaway!

Standard Orbit 142: The Rebooted Fleet


The Ships of the Kelvin Timeline. In this episode of Standard Orbit, Ken and Zach give the listeners what they want...more starship talk! Following up on our recent thread in the Babel Conference, this is the second part of our discussion, this time focusing on the ships of the Kelvin Timeline!

With a bold new aesthetic for a new generation of moviegoers, things were familiar yet different in this rebooted timeline and the starships were no exception. From new spins old ideas like the Kelvin, re-imagined classics like The Enterprise, and totally unique designs like the Narada or Krall's Swarm, if it flew in the Kelvin Timeline movies we talk about it here!

Standard Orbit 141: Red Shirt Starship

The Ships of TOS Prime Timeline TV and Movies

In this episode of Standard Orbit, Ken and Zach give the listeners what they want...starship talk! After our discussion thread on starship designs lit up the Babel Conference we decided it called for a podcast or two on the subject.

From the Enterprise's deflector dish and nacelles, the workhorse Miranda and Excelsior class, alien Birds-of-Prey and battle cruisers, and even DY-100 sleeper ships, we're talking the ships of TOS and the TOS movies. Buckle up with your arm rests and settle in for almost two hours of starship minutia!
