In this episode of Standard Orbit, Mike and Drew talk about what Roberto Orci leaving the director's chair means for the future of the 50th anniversary, what will happen to the existing script, and who might replace him. Does it sound like they need to replace the script? Do your hosts want to #BringBackRiker? Find out in this special news episode!
