The Star Trek franchise has an excellent track record with courtroom dramas, and of course TOS is where it all started. In this episode of Standard Orbit, hosts Ken Tripp and Zach Moore discuss the many trials and court martials that took place over The Original Series and the films.

The conversation takes many turns including favorite courtroom drama TV series, the minutia of dress uniforms, and to the role of the death penalty in the Star Trek future. And you read that right, Zach is back!
