Standard Orbit 72: Anonymous Extraordinary / by Drew Stewart

Remembering Harve Bennett.

Over the last  50 years, only a handful of people can be said to have run the Star Trek franchise. In the 80's, that man was Harve Bennett, who we recently lost.  In this episode of Standard Orbit, Mike and Drew are joined by "Star Trek Khan Movie Expert Guy" John Tenuto to talk about what Harve brought to the franchise. He had a hand in writing and producing Star Treks 2-5 and worked closely with each director to help tell the best story possible and get it to the screen. Find out more about all the things Harve did for the franchise during our talk with John.
