Cause and Effect (TNG) The A-Story: The Enterprise is caught in a time-loop that each time ends with it’s destruction. Oh and Frasier shows up at the end. “Hey baby I hear the Star Trek calling, tossed gagh and Riker’s scrambled … Continue reading You Talking Trek to Me?
The Squire of Gothos (TOS) The A-Story: Oops, not that. I’ve never read David’s Q-Squared, but Trelane being a Q is one of the few retcons that kinda makes sense. Rewatching The Squire of Gothos, it’s also evident that Encounter … Continue reading You Talking Trek to Me?
The Conscience of the King (TOS) The A-Story: Kirk struggles with notions of justice and vengeance in investigating if a traveling actor is actually the mass murdering Kodos the Executioner. I don’t really see the resemblance: I’ll admit I was really … Continue reading You Talking Trek to Me?
Defiant (Deep Space Nine) The A-Story: A rogue Starfleet officer takes a ship into Cardassian space to uncover a sinister plot. Starfleet and the Cardiassians must work together to prevent a new war. Oops, not that episode. I’ve seen both “The Wounded” … Continue reading You Talking Trek to Me?

Elementary, Dear Data The A-Story: Data and Geordi’s cosplay nearly destroys the Enterprise. By the beginning of the second season, we had only had one other (in what would become an almost genre unto itself) holodeck-gone-wrong episode. TNG would do more, … Continue reading You Talking Trek to Me?
Real Life The A-Story: The Doctor creates a holographic family. Then it becomes a heavy handed 1990s sitcom. Sorry y’all. On top of grading AP exams this week, I have also had a severe flare up of my lower back pain. … Continue reading You Talking Trek to Me?
Children of Time The A-Story: The Defiant gets trapped on a planet, only to find the survivors are their own decedents. Star Trek! It’s one of the better episodes of DS9 in my opinion. Of course it’s fascinating to see the … Continue reading You Talking Trek to Me?
The Most Toys The A-Story: Data is taken as a sinister collector’s prize museum piece. The story of the original Kivas Fajo actor is tragic. Famed British actor David Rappaport had already filmed scenes when he attempted suicide. They let him … Continue reading You Talking Trek to Me?
The Thaw (Short write up this week, looking forward to read what y’all thought) The A-Story: Jimmy McGill’s brother, Chuck, is a fear clown (aren’t they all? I kid, El Santo!) traps Kim and Torres in a computer program. Michael McKean … Continue reading You Talking Trek to Me?
Carbon Creek The A-Story: T’Pol tells Trip and Archer the story of the real first contact between humans and Vulcans, involving her ancestor. The twist? It’s in 1957 and not right after World War 3! (I had a lot of work … Continue reading You Talking Trek to Me?
Distant Origin The A-Story: DINOSAURS IN SPACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Boldly going where no dinosaur has gone before. Not safe for work dino shot: I’m currently rewatching Voyager, and it’s been so long since I’ve seen the show, I’m finding out that I … Continue reading You Talking Trek to Me?

Hello computer, are you talking Trek to me? So this is kind of the pre-return of a weekly Trek thread. We haven’t had one since Lilith’s fantastic series, and I wanted to bring back a weekly place we could talk … Continue reading You Talking Trek to Me?
