Shuttle Pod: The TrekMovie.com Podcast Episode 13 – Nick Meyer, Rod Roddenberry, and the Crew of Star Trek All Access

Trekkies were just treated to two big announcements concerning the future of the next Star Trek television* series, what we are currently calling Star Trek All Access: the announcement of Trek vet Nicholas Meyer as the first member of the writing staff and the addition of the caretaker of Star Trek’s legacy, Rod Roddenberry, son of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, along with the COO of Roddenberry Entertainment, Trevor Roth, as Executive Producers. In this episode of the Shuttle Pod, Brian, Jared, and Kayla discuss what this means for the future of the franchise.






Shuttle Pod: The TrekMovie.com Podcast Episode 8 – How Harve Bennett Saved Star Trek

Producer of the “Holy Trilogy” of Star Trek films (The Wrath of Khan, The Search For Spock, and The Voyage Home) in addition to The Final Frontier, Harve Bennett is arguably the reason that Star Trek is the strong franchise it is today. His passing earlier this year was overshadowed by the death of Leonard Nimoy who passed away just days before Bennett. This week on Shuttle Pod, we take a look back at Harve Bennett’s career and his impossible-to-overstate influence on the Star Trek franchise.


Shuttle Pod: The TrekMovie.com Podcast Episode 7 – Trek/Wars – Battle of the Franchises

Star Trek Beyond isn’t the only highly anticipated science fiction movie coming out in the next few months. Of course, we are all gearing up for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which hits theaters in just a couple of short weeks. Over the years, Star Trek and Star Wars have acted like sister franchises, playing off of each other and apart from each other. This week, we take a look at these two iconic franchises and how they have helped or hindered each others’ success in the business of science fiction franchises and what creative decisions brought the two together or pulled them farther apart.


Shuttle Pod: The TrekMovie.com Podcast Episode 6 – Mars Trek

Star Trek is all about exploring strange new worlds and the wonders of the 20-something-th century. But, you know what’s cool about living in 2015? We ARE exploring strange new worlds! Right now! All over our galactic neighborhood called the Solar System (and even a little bit beyond thanks to Voyager). The focus of humanity’s space exploration efforts currently centers on Mars. Join us this week for our thoughts on how the history of Mars exploration is depicted in Star Trek as we talk with special guest Andrew Britton, a scientist with Malin Space Science Systems who studies Mars for a living.


Shuttle Pod – The TrekMovie.com Podcast Episode 5: Star Trek Returns to Television (sort of)!

Hey, everyone! There’s going to be a new Star Trek series! On television*! This week on Shuttle Pod, we dissect last week’s announcement about the 6th (or 7th) Star Trek series and speculate not only on the theme, characters, universe, and story of the new series, but also about how it will fare on it’s new platform as original content for CBS’s online streaming service, All Access. *Well, internet television.




Shuttle Pod – The TrekMovie.com Podcast Now on iTunes + Episode 2: How Well Has TNG Aged?

The Next Generation may not be celebrating an important milestone (like VOY’s 20 years this year or TOS’s 50 years next year), but we felt it was time to take a look back at what is arguably the most commercially successful incarnation of the Star Trek franchise. This week, Brian and Jared are joined by Kayla Iacovino to talk about The Next Generation. How does it stand up to a modern audience? If you were to remake TNG for 2015, what would you change? What would you keep the same? The trio dive into topics such as characters, story lines, message, and even costumes, set dressings, and hair styles. And starting today, you can listen to the podcast on iTunes or on Pocket Casts!
