Star Trek V: The Final Frontier - The Audio Drama.
Star Trek V: The Final Frontier is a rather infamous film both in and out of Star Trek circles, but we here at Standard Orbit happen to love it. In celebration of our 300th episode, hosts Ken Tripp, Zach Moore and Hayley Stoddart decided to do something special: an audio drama of The Final Frontier based on an earlier draft of the film's script (featuring the rock monster) and with the dream casting of the film, Sean Connery as Sybok.
We can't thank our fellow hosts and listeners who participated in this massive undertaking enough: Tony Robinson, John Mills, Lee Sargent, Justin Oser, Richard Marquez, Amy Nelson, Duncan Barrett, Brandon-Shea Mutala, Zachary Fruhling, Norman C. Lao and A.J. Black. As the great man once said, "It was...fun"

Standard Orbit 299: This Is Goodbye
Ken And Zach Disembark Standard Orbit.
This week on Standard Orbit hosts Ken Tripp and Zach Moore disembark the podcast after a nearly four year journey together behind the microphone. They reminisce with Hayley Stoddart about their fondest hosting memories, favorite episodes of the podcast, friendships forged over the years and say their final goodbyes.
Ken and Zach would like to thank TrekFM for giving them the opportunity to discuss The Original Series and everything surrounding it in such an incredible forum, and listeners and fellow hosts alike who've come with them on the journey - many of whom they now consider dear friends. Boldly listen, one last time!

Standard Orbit 298: The Rise Of Fan Service
JJ Abrams, Star Trek, Star Wars And Fan Service.
With the recent release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, JJ Abrams has now directed two Star Trek and two Star Wars films. Each respective first film was embraced by the overwhelming majority of casual and die hard fans alike, while each respective second has been divisive to say the least. Is fan service (or attempted fan service) to blame?
This week on Standard Orbit hosts Ken Tripp, Zach Moore and Hayley Stoddart discuss the concept of fan service and how perhaps too much creeped in to JJ's second films in each franchise. What is fan service, is it what the writers and directors of our favorite franchises think it is, does is do more harm than good, and do we as fans really even want it? All this and more on this week's Standard Orbit, boldly listen!
