Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast
In this episode of Standard Orbit, Zach Moore is joined by Brandon-Shea Mutala to continue our series of commentaries on the Robert Bloch episode of TOS. This time we're covering the second season's Wolf in the Fold! One of the few Scotty-centric episodes of the series, it features some...interesting story points including one of fiction's favorite go-to villains, Jack The Ripper!

Our conversation hits on this episode's awkward gender politics, the movies that scare us most, potential fifth season Enterprise plots, and if this might episode that Quentin Tarantino picks to remake as the new Star Trek 4.

NBC cancelled Star Trek during its third season two episodes shy of 26. Zach and Ken review the scripts that were written for episodes 25 and 26 as well as other written scenarios for the series prior to cancellation.

In this episode of Standard Orbit hosts Zach Moore and Ken Tripp provide the synopsis of each of these scripts and provide their thoughts on how they would have been received. Some very interesting plots, a returning villain, and the directorial debut from one of the key cast members were part of the plan that was not to be. Join us for another fascinating episode of Standard Orbit.

Happy New Year 2018

Our second show of the holiday season and we wish everyone a very Happy New Year! Zach and Ken review each of their top three Standard Orbit Podcasts from 2017. They add in a few honorable mentions to round-off this past year's slate of shows. We owe a lot of thanks to many of the guest hosts this past year in order to ensure we hit as many Monday launch dates as possible.

Looking ahead to Quentin Tarantino: we discuss some of his films and the possible approach he'll bring to Star Trek. We are hopeful that he will keep the Kelvin timeline crew intact so we can continue to enjoy the journey of Captain Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise! We thank all of you for listening and hope you enjoy this week's and first of the New Year Episode!
