Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast

And The Children Shall Lead Commentary.

What is the worst episode of The Original Series? Some say Spock's Brain, some say The Alternative Factor, but we all know the real answer...And The Children Shall Lead. In this episode of Standard Orbit, we provide a commentary on this infamous hour of TOS, so let us be your companions the next time you rewatch Attorney Melvin Belli try to take over the Enterprise.

Ken is off shooting The Green Berets, so Zach has summoned Brandon the Friendly Cohost to join him for this journey of ring around the rosie, knives in space, rapid aging, and replicated ice cream. As you believe, so shall you do!

Movie Sequels to TOS Episodes. When Harve Bennett took the reins of the Star Trek franchise after The Motion Picture, he famously watched all 79 episodes of The Original Series to both familiarize himself with the show as well as mine it for potential sequel ideas. He zeroed in on Space Seed and the rest is history, but what if he'd picked something else?

In this episode of Standard Orbit, Ken and Zach each share their top three TOS episodes they would've liked to see movie sequels to. They also shout out to Standard Orbit's ever growing ranks of associate producers and read more listener email!

Show Title 
Standard Orbit 168: Horny Albino Unicorn Gorilla
The Monsters and Creatures of TOS. Part of the U.S.S. Enterprise's five year mission was to seek out new life and new civilizations, and it certainly encountered some bizarre aliens, monsters and creatures in that time. This episode of Standard Orbit is all about those cuddly, adorable, slimy, scaly, secreting, suction cupping monsters of The Original Series.

Part of the U.S.S. Enterprise's five year mission was to seek out new life and new civilizations, and it certainly encountered some bizarre aliens, monsters and creatures in that time. This episode of Standard Orbit is all about those cuddly, adorable, slimy, scaly, secreting, suction cupping monsters of The Original Series.

Fifty years on, how do some of these more ambitious creature designs hold up? How do later reinventions of aliens like the Gorn and the Tholians in Enterprise compare to their original incarnations? And the real question of the day, does the Mugato enrich the tapestry of Star Trek?

Star Trek's Most Emotionally Powerful Events

In this week's Standard Orbit, Ken and Nic dive into the most life changing and emotionally charged events across the Star Trek spectrum. From key events in the TOS episodes to the birth of Kirk and simultaneous death of George Kirk and Beyond; we'll explore the impacts of the hardest life and death circumstances on the crew of the USS Enterprise.

As we explore our characters toughest moments; we discuss how did they impact the fans of the show. How might the incidents on the screen helped Star Trek fans deal with those difficult circumstances in their own lives.

Climb aboard as we view the life journey of our favorite characters with care, emotion, humor, and pull from those experiences in our own lives.
