The picture of the TOS and TNG casts and Gene Roddenberry at the building dedication is cool, but where is LeVar Burton? Was he off filming Reading Rainbow?

Another interesting podcast.

I’m really enjoying the mix of content: episode review, news, cross-links.

Glad you are enjoying it! Anything you’d like to hear that we’re not doing, or anything we need to do less of? (Can you tell we’re hungry for feedback?)

The only thing that I might have liked would to have heard a few more clips from the interview with Wil Wheaton.

It was nice to have the article about the interview available earlier, but it’s also nice to hear the audio clips.

Thanks! We’ll keep that in mind. We might do a supplemental episode with the Wil Wheaton interview that’s just that.

I second that. I was hoping to hear more from Wil. And it would be great if you guys did some more mini-interviews like that for your podcast. Like, it would be neat to hear from TNG-era writers on their thoughts on Lower Decks, especially if Lower Decks has a bit that related to something that they wrote on TNG.

Great Podcast. I love the deep knowledge in Trek, as always. I agree that the best gag was when The Dog turned into that cube and the characters acted like it was no big deal.

And as a huge fan of both She-Ra and Star Trek, I appreciate that podcast link to M. Willis.
