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. David steps in Star Trek poop by suggesting that Star Trek might have improved AFTER Gene Roddenberry’s involvement… GASP! We also discuss Indians, T-shirts and Amazon drones.
What happens to our heroes after the show stops airing? Does Riker become a baker? Does Spock become a door to door salesmen? We ask the important questions in this weeks episode of Trekcast! Also this week we learn that David saw a Star Trek The Next Generation episode he had NEVER seen before and Darren has a Deep Space Nine episode he has never seen!?

Darren, Jeef and Paul learn about each other and their own bodies in this very special, coming of age episode of Trekcast. I just through up a little writing that sentence. We do in fact learn how our heroes became Trekkies and follow their path to the great nerds you see before you today. We also ask the the important questions like: Have you accepted James T. Kirk as your captain and admiral?
Hot or not? Returning guest host Vernon Wilmer and David (Tommy) Ivy rate all the women of Star Trek throughout the years. Don’t fear, we also delve deeply into their collective contributions to the show and society… This aint just a beauty contest.
We used this piece of are by Erik A. Evenson that we brought to our attention on our Facebook page.
5 Years and 100 episodes. We’ve decided to read some email and answer the big Star Trek questions. What kind of series should come next, should there be one, is there a place for spirituality and mush more. Lets start on the next 100 episodes!
Why do we feel the desire to collect merchandise from franchises like Star Trek and others that we love so much? Are we hoarders? Do we just need to be around it? We may never know for sure but the Trekcast crew delved into it this week. We also listened to a little Star Trek Jazz from Andrew Allen.
Unfortunately the actors on Star Trek are just that: Actors. As much as we (I) wanted them to be aliens and Starfleet personnel. I discovered all this at the 2013 Star Trek Convention when I went to see the Deep Space Nine panel and discovered a bunch of actors in place of the crew I have come to love. This week we discuss the actors play and wonder if their roll MIGHT be over stated.
We apologize in advance for another year of drunken Star Trek convention babble. We just can’t help it. We have so much fun, drink way too many Romulan Ales and record ourselves. We might (purely by accident) have had some valuable insight into the 2013 Las Vegas Star Trek convention. If nothing else let this be an inspiration to you your kids out there that alcohol is not your friend.
