Steven Lance Interview, Part 1.
  
If you were a Star Trek fan in the 1970s and were fortunate enough to attend a convention, odds your host was Steven Lance a.k.a. “Heash.”

In this episode of Standard Orbit, Steven joins hosts Zach Moore and Hayley Stoddart to discuss how he came to be a fan of Star Trek, a talent show at Lunacon 1973 that opened up the world of Star Trek conventions to him, his time as host of those conventions, and the close friendship he developed with James Doohan.

Standard Orbit 222: Dumb and Death

Favorite Red Shirt Moments.
  
The term "red shirt" is an ingrained in pop culture as "live long and prosper," "warp speed" and "beam me up Scotty." If the stereotype is to be believed, wearing a red uniform on the Enterprise is basically a death sentence...but is it really?

In this episode of Standard Orbit, hosts Zach Moore and Hayley Stoddart explore the cliché, its validity, and discuss some of the their favorite red shirt moments from The Original Series.

Standard Orbit 221: Trek Movie Madness

The Wrath of Khan vs. First Contact.
  
Trek Madness is back by popular demand! In this episode of Standard Orbit, hosts Ken Tripp, Zach Moore, and Hayley Stoddart are joined by the hosts of Earl Grey to debate the best of the best of the Star Trek movies: The Wrath of Khan vs. First Contact! 
 
Nine out of ten Trekkies on the street would agree that these two films are the best of their respective film franchises, so how does TOS' cream of the crop measure up to TNG's? Both feature themes of revenge, returning villains, epic space battles and memorable musical scores; we compare and contrast all this and much more in Trek Movie Madness!

Standard Orbit 220: Discoprise

TOS in Discovery Season 2 and Star Trek 4 and 5.
 
In this episode of Standard Orbit hosts Zach Moore and Hayley Stoddart discuss the exciting news released recently regarding Discovery's second season, there being not one but two new Star Trek films in development, and how all this relates to The Original Series
 
There is plenty of speculation and expectations amongst fans with regards to the meeting of the Enterprise and Discovery and their respective crews. With this in mind, we discuss what we are excited about...and maybe not so excited about. Then we share our excitement over having the first female director in the film franchise, what a fourth Kelvin Timeline movie might look like, and what the other (possibly Tarantino-directed) movie might be.
