Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast
Is there money in the 23rd century? Reports may vary, but it certainly still exists in the here and now. For as long as the Star Trek franchise has been in existence, advertisers have been tapping into its cross culture popularity to sell their own products, which has lead to some very enjoyable advertisements over the years.

In this episode of Standard Orbit, hosts Ken Tripp and Zach Moore play and reflect on some of the most entertaining and memorable television commercials featuring the Star Trek brand, from William Shatner pitching a Commodore VIC-20 to Quicken Loans helping a Vulcan secure a homestead.

Standard Orbit 181: Last God Standing
 
Battle of the Gods.
 
There are many godlike, super-powerful beings the Enterprise encountered over the course of their five year mission, often requiring Kirk and crew to use their wits and ingenuity to overcome. But what if these beings didn't have to battle the crew of the Enterprise, but each other?


In this episode of Standard Orbit, hosts Ken Tripp and Zach Moore pit the "gods" of The Original Series against each other in a death match that will decide once and for all who is superior. There can be only one!

Standard Orbit 179: I Had Your Sash
 
Errand of Mercy.
 
While considered the big bad of The Original Series, the Klingons only appear in a handful of episodes. The first of which not coming until the tail end of the first season. Despite this, they made quite the impression and John Colicos' Kor became the template all future members of his species...until maybe Christopher Lloyd's Kruge.

In this episode of Standard Orbit, host Zach Moore is joined Trek.fm Content Manager Justin Oser to break down what works, what doesn't, and what we wanted to see more of in Errand of Mercy. Also to bookend the conversation, a bit of Kelvin Timeline and The Next Generation talk as they tie into Justin's recent resurgent Trek fandom.
