Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast

Starship in Peril. 

How often has the Enterprise been in peril from the series through the movies? Zach and Ken have the answer as they explore the episodes and movies where our beloved Starship was in jeopardy of being destroyed (and in one case; it was destroyed).
  
Whether it was a giant hand in space, self destruct, powerful  beings, advanced aliens, or those pesky Romulans and Klingons; the Starship Enterprise has it's share of close calls. Based on a listener suggestion; Zach and Ken provide a run down on the circumstances and the methods used to save everyone's favorite starship.

Standard Orbit 165: Star Trek At Its Best
 
Revisiting the TOS Film Era.

In this age of franchises and sequels one could easily take the six TOS films for granted, but they are what many consider to be Star Trek at its best. In this episode of Standard Orbit, friend of the network Tony Black joins Zach to discuss their shared love of the TOS film era.

Releasing six films over twelve years is no easy feat, which is even more impressive when you consider there was no franchise road map or master plan. This singular focus of storytelling lead to a wide variety of films unmatched by any other franchise, and we celebrate that while part of a greater whole, each story stands alone as a unique, satisfying and self contained experience.

Standard Orbit 164: The Con of Wrath

Ultimate Fantasy 1982
   
Dr. Trek himself, Larry Nemecek joins Zach and Ken as we discuss his forthcoming documentary The Con of Wrath as well as Star Trek conventions then and now.
 
Long time Star Trek writer, author, publisher, and historian; Larry Nemecek talks about his first documentary about the legendary 1982 Houston Star Trek convention that devolved into quite the fiasco. He interviews several of the cast and production crew who were involved including the last interview ever given by the late Harve Bennett.
   
What would a new version Standard Orbit be without our famous tangents? We review the size and origins of Star Trek conventions right up to the current day. Prepare yourselves for the influx of Trek fandom we receive when Dr. Trek explores this universe like no else.

Standard Orbit 163: Viewer Astern

Looking Back to Keep Moving Forward

30 Episodes have been published with the newest Standard Orbit team. Zach and Ken take a look at how the format is resonating and which shows took off and others that are still on the launch pad. They review the ratings, the hits, and the misses over the last 7 months of podcasting. 
  
Like any other form of media there is a lot of data that is used to quantify what an audience is looking for in its subject matter. Zach and Ken share the downloads and responses from some of the key episodes as well as explore the ones that were really successful, those they thought would be successful and did not reach expectations, and their deep appreciate for the feedback and responses from Standard Orbit listeners.
