Star Trek Las Vegas.
In this episode of Standard Orbit, it's an away mission to the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas as Refit Crew takes a break from the convention floor to discuss their thoughts on Star Trek Las Vegas...from a TOS perspective of course!
It's not everyday one gets the opportunity to see all the surviving members of the TOS main cast live and in person, but we had the pleasure of exactly that at STLV50! In this round table we discuss Shatner being as lively as ever in his 80s, Koenig's recent thoughts on the decades old grudge between the "little four" and the captain, Takei's take on Sulu's sexuality in Star Trek Beyond, and finally the ever-elegant Nichelle Nichols. We wrap up with our favorite overall moments of STLV and areas where there might be room for improvement in future conventions.
