Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast (The Kelvin Era Movies)
S2: BEYOND Relieved

Reflections on Standard Orbit and BEYOND.

From the Commodore's Personal Log: On January 11, 2016, the REFIT of Standard Orbit took to the airwaves with a new sound, a new crew and a new mission starting with Episode 111: Hailing Frequencies Open. My first and ONLY choice for First Officer was my good friend and literal Trek EXPERT Jeffrey Harlan, now lovingly known as as Mr. AtoZ. I also desperately wanted to bring in one of Trek.fm’s biggest supporters onto the show. The CHIEF Ken Tripp beamed on as Sound Engineer (editor) and we forged our very own TOS "triumvirate". I can’t thank them enough for what they have brought to the show and personally to my life as my good and dear friends.

On August 22, 2016 Mr. AtoZ and I had the pleasure to record our final episode together as hosts of Standard Orbit. Thank you everyone from the bottom of our hearts for making our journey here at Trek.fm so amazing. Thank you Christopher Jones for giving us the opportunity to share our Star Trek viewpoints with the fans and listeners. We have handed the command codes over to The Chief and Zach Moore, and I have every confidence that they will continue the mission with great zeal and honor. Thank you everyone for sharing this journey with us. Live Long and Prosper.

S1: Commodore's Log Supplemental

Norm's Reflections on The Kelvin Era Movies.

Over the last several shows on Standard Orbit - specifically episodes 133 and 134, the Commodore (Norman C. Lao) did not have the opportunity to participate in all of the thought provoking and exciting conversations as The Chief (Ken Tripp), Mr. AtoZ (Jeffrey Harlan) and new Standard Orbit crewmember Zach Moore delved deeply into the Kelvin Era cinematic universe. On the cusp of the epically anticipated Star Trek BEYOND, Norm really wanted to participate in his own way. So he decided to pull rank here and record his own thoughts on this new movie universe.

Admittedly he was ashamed of his attitude towards Star Trek 2009 and in this Supplemental Commodore's Log entry, he confesses how his fandom almost stalled as his love of the Original Series blinded him to the very tenant that Star Trek was built upon: IDIC...Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations. Challenged by that very ideal and axiom of TOS, Norm makes that very same plea to the Star Trek fandom at large and hopes that we all as the fanbase strive to understand the current state of Star Trek and move forward in a collective and positive manner.

Note: This recording was made PRIOR to the weekend before Star Trek BEYOND.
