Our friends at Mission Log are doing a wonderful job chronicling the development of the Star Trek philosophy, providing a detailed of each episode sequentially week after week. This week, however, they’ve added a “supplemental” with an exclusive almost two-hour interview with Wil Wheaton. The candid discussion focuses more on the young actor’s experience on the show in the 80s rather than some of the Wesley-bashing that came afterward, nerd-friendly ruminations about levelling up as a human, and Wheaton’s reactions to watching episodes nowadays.Read More
Mission Log Podcast
Now that the original series Star Trek movies have been dissected, this week’s Mission Log podcast takes a pause before starting in on Star Trek: The Next Generation. This ‘Supplemental’ pocast revisits some of the TOS movies and includes a conversation with Mike and Denise Okuda. Listen to it below.
The last flight of the original crew is full of deep topics and high adventure. The Klingon Empire is collapsing. Some want to let it, though it falls to Captain Kirk of all people to make sure the empire survives. But forces are working against peace between the Klingons and the Federation on both sides. Mystery! Court drama! A prison break! And best of all – a WORKING Enterprise. We are putting Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country in the Mission Log.
In Star Trek II we found Khan. In Star Trek III we found Spock. In Star Trek IV we found whales. What is bigger than all of that? One of us is looking for God. And – surprise! We find Spock’s brother! And we weren’t even searching for him. Strap in for a fun movie… or a movie, anyway. It’s Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.
Hello, computer? It’s another Mission Log Podcast! This week, John and Ken voyage back to Earth, 1986. Their mission? To capture a pair of breeding humpbacked… people?
