Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast

Standard Orbit 286: Return To Yesterday

Season 4 Episode Pitches.

As we all know, the USS Enterprise was on a five year mission. Unfortunately that mission was cut short by NBC when it canceled Star Trek after just three seasons, but what if it wasn't? This week on Standard Orbit, hosts Zach Moore and Hayley Stoddart each pitch a story idea for a hypothetical fourth season of TOS. 

What kind of episodes would Zach and Hayley have wanted to seen on TOS? How would an almost certainly slashed budget affect these stories? What guest stars or alien races would make return appearances? Is there time travel involved? Spoiler: Of course there is! Boldly listen!

Standard Orbit 283: "You Should Have Let Me Sleep!"

Villains Of The Kelvin Timeline.

The Star Trek movies have (with rare exception) usually featured a special guest villain, and this trend has continued into the Kelvin Timeline era. Nero, John Harr---Khan, and Krall have all faced off against the new cast of Captain Kirk and the Enterprise, and this week on Standard Orbit hosts Ken Tripp and Zach Moore discuss and rank them.

Was Nero just another Khan rehash or something more? Would John Harr---Khan been better off had has indeed merely been John Harrison? As the only one of the three not to get a fleshed out backstory in the Star Trek expanded universe of books and comics, is Krall ripe for more exploration as a character? All this on this week's Standard Orbit, boldly listen!
