In this episode of Standard Orbit: Hayley Stoddart and Ken Tripp discuss this game changing episode, especially if you enjoy playing cards. A Piece of the Action allows our heroes to have some fun while fixing the damage from a book left behind from a starship 100 years earlier.
For someone who claimed to be emotionless and that emotions were "alien" to him, Spock certainly became "emotionally compromised" quite frequently over the years. This week on Standard Orbit hosts Ken Tripp, Zach Moore and Hayley Stoddart discuss Spock's emotional moments in The Original Series, the movies and the Kelvin Timeline.
The refit is many legacy Star Trek fan's favorite ship. Ken, Hayley, and Zach review the changes, the features, and filming of this storied Starship. Is there any of the original starship a part of the refit? What about the new bridge, engineering, and landing gear? Secure your turbolock armrests, be ready for wormholes, and boldly listen!
This week on Standard Orbit, hosts Ken Tripp and Zach Moore discuss the odd jobs on the original Enterprise. From historians to meteorologists, often times the characters who hold these positions appear out of nowhere for one story and are never heard from again. Which of these highly specialized jobs make sense to have on a starship, which ones don't, and what other types of officers would we have liked to have seen on the Enterprise?
This week on Standard Orbit, host Zach Moore is joined by sociology professor and Star Trek historian John Tenuto to discuss the long history of Star Trek toys. We discuss John and his wife Mary Jo's appearances on Netflix's "The Toys That Made Us," the famous (and infamous in some cases) action figures by Mego, the ever-other-movie approach to toys and merchandise in the TOS movie era, the evolution of action figures in the modern age of collectables and many of John and Zach's favorite Star Trek toys from over the years.
This week on Standard Orbit, hosts Ken Tripp and Hayley Stoddart take a deep dive into what defines Captain Kirk. Is he really a cocky ladies-man rule breaking warrior or are these descriptions a big oversimplification? We ask you to boldly listen and decide for yourself!
As Leonardo da Vinci once said, "Art is never finished, only abandoned." Nicholas Meyer would seem to agree, as he returned to both of the Star Trek films he directed to create alternate director's cut. This week on Standard Orbit, hosts Ken Tripp and Zach Moore discuss the differences between these alternate versions and their original theatrical counterparts, which versions they find superior, and some of their non-Star Trek, favorite director's cuts. Boldly listen!
What would watching The Original Series in stardate order look like? Would it create any continuity errors? Would it solve any? How does The Animated Series fit into all this? Hosts Ken Tripp and Zach Moore go deep into the rabbit hole of TOS era stardates this week on Standard Orbit.
This week on Standard Orbit hosts Ken Tripp, Zach Moore and Hayley Stoddart discuss the classic episode The Devil In The Dark. From its progressive message of understanding and communication to the minutia of Janus VI's maps and uniforms, it's a fun conversation about one of Star Trek's finest hours.
This week on Standard Orbit Ken Tripp teams up with Brandon-Shea Mutala at the Northeast Trek Convention in Albany, New York. Ken and Brandon share their adventure and observations recorded from inside the Albany Capital Center.
