I look forward to hearing this!

Could the secret project that David Zappone is teasing if they get enough money be a new Captain Proton episode?

Definitely something we thought about. I’d rather see a “real” adventure of the crew myself, but there are a lot of Captain Proton fans out there.

I am so grateful I found this podcast late last year. I look forward every Friday for this podcast. Thank you so much for all the news, links and your unbiased opinion. It is refreshing.


Thanks for another great podcast. Really like how you let the guest have their say without interruption. Laurie thanks for asking the “Enterprise” question. Having done a complete series re-watch on Netflix recently, I would would love to see a documentary on that.

Regarding future topics? How about podcasts on “Enterprise” and also TOS, both of which have 20 and 55 year anniversaries this September.

Thanks for the ideas. Those are good topic ideas, but so far for All Access, we have been trying to keep the focus on new projects (CBSAA/Paramount+ shows, new Paramount movies, new docs, etc). But we might take some looks but there is always the great Shuttle Pod crew to do those kind of deep dives into those shows.

Thanks for your reply Anthony and understood. I totally agree about the Shuttle Pod being great and well suited to deep dives.

I’m rewatching the entire franchise and of course Enterprise is what I started with and honestly I really love this show as much as the other classic Trek shows now. But it was the only Star Trek show I ever stopped watching. What a difference a little time makes.

I would take Enterprise over Discovery now and I actually don’t like prequels much (a big reason why I couldn’t get into the show like a lot of people I’m assuming). I just love it’s low grade and exploration feel. And unlike Discovery, it really fits it’s time period beautifully. The first season was pretty bland though but have really grown to liking even a lot of those episodes too.

I really enjoyed S3 of Enterprise which was their version of Voyagers “Year of hell”. A much under rated part of the Trek universe and I still regret it not getting the additional seasons it so deserved.
