We are overjoyed to bring you our discussions on the only two part episode of Star Trek: The Original Series – The Menagerie.
Series 2 of Star Trek Discovery, featuring Captain Pike, Number One and Spock, is about to get underway. So what better time to go back to where it started with and celebrate this triumph over this masterful episode that arguably saved the franchise from cancellation.
Listen out for what could have been for one of the best call backs in the history of Star Trek plus some more Albert Whitlock chat.
The website that Terry refers to about the remastered matte paintings is here.
Following on from our previous podcast on Mirror, Mirror – Graham, Terry and Derek discuss its legacy and the nature of parallel universes and alternate timelines not just in Star Trek but in other Science Fiction.
We also celebrate the numerous sequels to this classic episode whether they be canon, side canon and non canon. So we’re talking Fan films, DC Comics, Dark Mirror by Diane Duane, Deep Space 9, Enterprise and Discovery. Please note there will be spoilers.
This podcast is also notable for a world class impression of the Grand Nagus.
Terry, Graham and Derek return from their summer break to record a short reaction to the trailer for Season 2 of Star Trek Discovery. What are our expectations for the news season? How do we feel about the return of Pike to Star Trek? Do we detect a little more humour in the news season?
Terry, Graham and Derek return for another edition of Whom Pods Destroy: A Star Trek Discussion Podcast.
In this edition we spend a few minutes discussing the new Star Trek: Discovery trailer before moving onto the classic Star Trek: The Original Series episode Journey To Babel. This is a multi layered, political, world building episode. It also marks the first appearance of Spock’s parents, Sarek and Amanda, two of the most loved supporting characters in Star Trek.
