Standard Orbit 98: Mad McCoy / by Trek fm

IDW Ongoing Comic Comparison: The Tholian Webs.

Sometimes you can't help but go a little mad sometimes, especially when your ship gets caught in interphase and surrounded by an impenetrable web. In this episode of Standard Orbit, Mike and Drew catch up with the IDW Ongoing comics and compare their "The Tholian Webs" with the original episode. During the episode, Mike manages to fix the logic of a similar Next Generation episode, we discuss why some people pronounce "Han" differently, and Drew comes up with another theory of what character Idris Elba is going to play in Star Trek Beyond.
