The Ready Room 88: Adjusting Their Babel Fish / by Trek fm

Little Green Men.

The alleged crash of a flying saucer near Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947 has stirred controversy and fascination like few events in human history. Despite the revelation in recent years that the debris recovered was actually part of the U.S. military’s Project MOGUL, there are still those who believe it was an encounter with extraterrestrials. It’s a fun theory to kick around, but until DS9 aired Star Trek’s explanation in 1995 no one imagined that it was actually Ferengi who crashed that day.

In this episode of The Ready Room we’re joined by Michael Fisher to discuss the fan-favourite “Little Green Men,” whether it really lives up to its reputation, and what it has to say about the road from present day to Star Trek future.

In news we look at the newly revealed extended cut of “The Wounded,” an additional show time for the “Best of Both Worlds,” a chance to see yourself on the big screen as a Borg, Ensign Lefler’s run for US Senate, Bye Bye Robot’s new Khan poster, shifts in the release date for Star Trek Into Darkness, and lots of spoilers about the new movie including Peter Weller’s role, lots of jumping off of things, Pike’s problem with Kirk, and the Star Wars flavour of the latest teaser. And did we mention lots of jumping off of things?
