Star Trek Origins: Cloaking Device.
In this episode of Standard Orbit, we launch into our second origins outline looking at the deployment and use of the cloaking device from is initial debut in Balance of Terror, to its evolution over the course of the franchise through The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine.
A game changing piece of technology, we explore how having the cloaking device adds such huge tactical advantage to those who have it, try to understand the reasoning behind Starfleet not using it themselves (until the Dominion War) and its applications beyond starships such as personal cloaking tech and cloaked mines.

The Original Series is well known for it's flowery, cultured and sometimes dare we say pretentious episode titles, so this week on Standard Orbit hosts Ken Tripp and Zach Moore thought it would be fun to do a run down of the first season's episode titles and reimagine them as if they were titled at the height the "Berman" era of Star Trek when the music was wallpaper and the titles were too.

When Star Trek first went into production it wasn't Captain James Kirk in the center seat of the USS Enterprise, it was Captain Christopher Pike. First brought to life by actor Jeffrey Hunter, Pike went on to be portrayed by three other actors and has carved out his own niche in the mythos. This week on Standard Orbit hosts Ken Tripp, Zach Moore
and Hayley Stoddart discuss the many faces of Captain Pike and his resurgence as a character in recent years.
