Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast

Standard Orbit 202: Trek Wars
 
Star Trek vs. Star Wars.

Merry Christmas and a happy Star Wars season to you all! In honor of December now officially being Star Wars month, we thought it would be fun to pit the two trilogies of the George Lucas Star Wars saga against the six movies of the TOS cast and crew.

In this episode of Standard Orbit, hosts Ken Tripp and Zach Moore don't settle the  great Star Trek vs. Star Wars debate one and for all, but they at least have a good time talking about that other Star franchise. It's their present to each other and the listeners this Christmas. May the Force be with you!
