Standard Orbit 107: David Gautreaux Is Still Available / by Drew Stewart

Unmade: Phase II with Ben Robinson.

Perhaps the greatest unmade project from the First Dark Ages of Trek was an abandoned series known now as "Phase II". In this episode of Standard Orbit, Mike and Drew are joined by writer/editor Ben Robinson, who shares his discoveries about the series. From unmade episodes to unused actors, we go over as much as we could in the time we had. Ben also teases about the future of the Eaglemoss Starship Collection that he manages.

Running Time: 1 hour 19 minutes 24 seconds
