Shuttle Pod 70 – Star Trek Reunified At Last! and Star Trek Las Vegas 2019
The Shuttle Pod crew reconvenes after Las Vegas to discuss the big the news this week, along with our reflections on the big Star Trek Las Vegas convention earlier in the month. Of course, the big news is that CBS and Viacom finally came to an agreement to merge, bringing Star Trek back under one roof. Brian, Kayla, and Matt discuss the history of Star Trek ownership and what the future of Trek could look like now that things are reunified. The other big Trek topic of late was what happened in Star Trek Las Vegas. The podcasters discuss the general vibe of the convention this year, and the top panels that they were most excited to attend: Star Trek: Picard and Lower Decks. Lastly, there’s a grab bag of news items since the last podcast to discuss.
As mentioned in the podcast, if you haven’t read it already, we recommend Brian’s interview with VFX legend Douglas Trumbull about making The Motion Picture.
