Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast
TOS and Batman: The Animated Series.

This week host Zach Moore is joined by fellow Trekkie and Batman superfan Chris Clow to talk the many crossover talents between The Original Series and what many consider the best animated show of all time, Batman: The Animated Series. With the recent announcement of Batman: The Animated Series being remastered and released in HD, this seemed like the perfect time to discuss the incredible actors who've graced both the stages of TOS and the sound booths of BTAS. From first-tier Batman villains to one-off supporting characters; Nichelle Nichols, Michael Ansara, David Warner, the list goes on!

We also talk Chris' Star Trek fandom and his own Trek podcast, Discovery Debrief!

In this episode of Standard Orbit hosts Ken Tripp, Zach Moore and Hayley Stoddart discuss the recent news surrounding the possible merger of CBS and Paramount, the next two films involving our beloved crew, the possibility of more Star Trek returning to our TV screens and more TOS in Discovery.

Ken shares his knowledge about the possible merger, will it happen and what are the logistics of that if it does. We speculate on the ideas of the Khan mini-series, a Starfleet Academy show and what we would like to see. By golly, we just want the next Star Trek movie already!

Standard Orbit 228: A Tale of Two Saaviks

A Character Review

This week on Standard Orbit hosts Zach Moore, Hayley Stoddart, and Ken Tripp discuss the character of Saavik and the actors that portrayed her. This fan-favorite Vulcan is fun to explore from her origins to the very unique styles brought to her by Kirstie Alley and Robin Curtis.

The Standard Orbit team explore the perspectives, the history, and the approaches taken by Myer and Nimoy in making Saavik a part of the crew only to be written off and reinvented with Valeris (Kim Cattrall)  in Star Trek VI.  We invite you to explore LT. Saavik and give us your feedback and theories on the Babel Conference. Boldly Listen!
