Standard Orbit 261: Completely Illogical

Vulcans in the Immunity Syndrome

Hayley and Ken discuss whether it is logical that a crew of Vulcans would be unsuccessful in solving the mystery of the immunity syndrome. In this question and answer episode: Ken and Hayley challenge each other on this fascinating topic.

Would the best scientific minds in the Federation truly fail in thwarting the giant space amoeba? When something isn't logical does it really mean it is impossible to accept? Ken and Hayley explore the Vulcan mind-set and other examples of Vulcan behavior to understand if they could have survived. Boldly Listen to the this week's Standard Orbit.

Standard Orbit 260: How Do You View Your Trek?

Episodic vs. Serialized Viewing

Zach, Hayley, and Ken pilot Standard Orbit in a new direction by discussing the serialized approach of Discovery with the styles of TOS and the other Trek series and movies.

Viewing habits have evolved and so has Star Trek. Does a serialized series have a more difficult time than an episodic series? Did the TOS movies start the process of the longer story arc in Star Trek? What will CBS do with the new animated series or Picard out of the gate. Which series had the best formula? We debate it all so...Boldly Listen to the this week's Standard Orbit.
