Trekcast Episode 110: The Music of Star Trek

by David Ivy

Rock-Band-Star-Trek

This week David and Vernon take on the most comprehensive discussion of Star Trek music ever attempted by mortals. The soundtrack to Start Trek is amazing, beautiful and we discover that it’s also very diverse. From Alexander Courage to Jerry Goldsmith, we listen to it all and marvel at Star Trek’s audio history.

Trekcast Episode 109: Not so special effects

by David Ivy

Star Trek 4 Heads

 

This week Vernon joins David to discuss Visual Effects throughout the years in Star Trek and how Computer Graphics (CG) have influenced story telling. Is it a good thing or a bad thing? I thing we decided that this new overly digital form of film making has hurt overall story telling, but it’s really up to you to decide.

Trekcast Episode 108: Star Trek: Into Discussion

by David Ivy

jjabrams

Man, we are divided on this issue? Do you like Star Trek: Into Darkness? Darren Benjamin likes it and David Ivy doesn’t like it and that seems to represent the Star Trek community as a whole.

We also start a new segment we call “what Star Trek got wrong”. Where we discuss the predictiobs of the futre that didn’t quite happen the way Trek thought they would.

Trekcast Episode 107: Who’s weirder, Dax or Odo?

by David Ivy

Odo_Curzon

Whoa, did we nerd out this week? No topic planned, no show notes, nothing. Darren Benjamin and David Ivy just turned on the microphones and let the geek fly! From Trills to Changelings, from Grays to little known Star Trek characters. This is why we listen to Trekcast… Just nerds talking Star Trek! …and if you aren’t careful, ya just might learn something. …but probably not.

Trekcast Episode 106: Before Star Trek, there was nothing.

by David Ivy

trek_monkThis week we delve into the Star Trek fandom and nerdom. Did Star Trek write the book on this level of fandom and why can we so passionate about Trek? We are pleased to be joined by Star Trek author, actor, editor, archivist, consultant, interviewer, producer and good friend, Larry Nemecek. There aren’t many people that know this much about our beloved Star Trek so it’s a treat to be able to sit down and pick Larry’s unusually keen, Spcok sized brain.

Trekcast Episode 105: Star Trek Reality Show?

by David Ivy

Chum_trek

What is the next, next generation of Star Trek going to be? A gig, deep, Game of Thrones style show with violence and thirty characters that is hard to follow, a kids show with a talking prairie dog or a reality show about a bunch of fans making a fan film? Should Star Trek take a break and be pulled for a few years? All of these ideas sound pretty frightening, but as Trek fans we are going to have to take the risk at some point.

Part two in our “what happened to the characters” after the shows. This episode we cover Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise.
