11/25/2011 – Episode #56: Nineties #3, TNG #2

 

 

Now available for download, Episode 56! As
always, this podcasts’ mission has been to (hopefully) provide entertaining and witty comments on every officially licensed Star Trek comic ever published.

 

The Next Generation issues in the first quarter of 1990 finished
off season 2 and transitions into season 3 (something the series never did with Crusher’s abrupt and return). We are first presented the conclusion to McRobb’s heroic debut story arc. Then treated us to a two-parter that has Geordi in love… I am sure that it will work out for him.

 

Be sure to return next week for Episode 57, our continuation
of the Enterprise A’s adventures where Kirk is face to face with the most notorious
bounty hunter in the galaxy (it is not Boba Fett).

 

PS: Remember this picture of the Targ Dog Costume, it will be mentioned:

11/14/2011 – Random Thoughts

We all love Star Trek, and if every planet has a bunch of people that look like humans with bumpy heads or odd noses, then we will go with it. My comment today is about alien animals, and how sometimes they look a little too much like Earth animals for my tastes.

 

In Star Trek V, Kirk is on a planet (Nymbus III) that has been settled by the Klingons, Romulans, and HUMANS. On this planet, we see the crew riding magnificent blue unicorns. Obviously these animals were not seeded from Earth, thus why they do not resemble Earth horses.

 

That same year, in Star Trek: The Next Generation #1, Picard is on an alien planet that has mistrust for the Federation. Here, Picard rides an animal that looks exactly like a horse! This cannot be a gift from Earth, because the inhabitants are all riding these horses.

 

Now if the aliens on the planet looked like humans, then we can chalk it up to parallel evolution. But no, these aliens are large feline creatures. Aside from being bipedal, they do not resemble humans much at all.

 

And that is a random moment…

11/03/2011 – You can be a “Red Shirt”

 

 

We live in a messed up universe, my friends. Pirates and other hooligans are pushing our favorite local comic shops out of business. Now you can show your support of them and become a “Red Shirt” on the cover of Star Trek Ongoing #5! You will be depicted throwing yourself in front of a phaser blast aimed at your comic provider’s heart!

Star Trek is filled with great and not-so-great items for the collector to seek out and explore.  This series of articles will be to include items from both extremes. As Star Trek collectors, I am sure we all have the gems that we are proud of and the others that we bought just because it had “Star Trek” on the box.

 

Today we cover Star Trek’s relationship with Barbie.
