With the fortieth anniversary of Star Trek: The Motion Picture upon us there have been whispers of a 4K upgrade of the film and beyond even that, a 4K (and for the first time, high definition) upgrade of the Director's Edition from 2001. This week on Standard Orbit, hosts Ken Tripp, Zach Moore and Hayley Stoddart discuss the likelihood of this coming to pass and also compare the theatrical and director's cuts of the film.
At eighty eight years old, William Shatner is as active as ever. Television, music albums, conventions and of course social media; there’s no slowing down The Shat. His continued interactions with fans and commentary on Twitter has not been without incident however, and this week on Standard Orbit hosts Ken Tripp and Zach Moore take a look at some of the more controversial situations Shatner has been a part of in recent years.
By popular demand, we're back one last time retitling the adventures of The Original Series crew in the style of "Berman Era" of Star Trek! This time hosts Ken Tripp, Zach Moore and Hayley Stoddart reimagine The Motion Picture through The Undiscovered Country with titles that would fit alongside Generations, First Contact, Insurrection and Nemesis.
We're back with the third and final installment in our series retitling The Original Seriesepisodes in the style of "Berman Era" of Star Trek! This time host Zach Moore is joined by Brian Drew from TrekMovie.com's The Shuttle Pod(cast) to reimagine the third season, also talking the origins of Brian's Star Trek fandom and the fandom of the 1970s along the way.
Retitling season one of The Original Series was so much fun, we're back with more alternate episode titles for the second season! This time host Zach Moore is joined by host of Melodic Treks and Warp Five Brandon-Shea Mutala to take on the likes of Wolf in the Fold, A Private Little War and Return to Tomorrow and reimagine them as if they were titled at the height the "Berman Era" of Star Trek.
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.
Follow us on a journey of memorable Scotty lines from the early days of the original series, through the movies, and onto the TNG episode Relics. Ken and Hayley discuss all things Montgomery Scott this week on Standard Orbit: Boldly Listen!
