Someone once said, “Don’t try to be a great man. Just be a man and let history make its own judgements.” In honour of the debut of the new TV series Star Trek: Picard, his month’s premium podcast is a trip back to the ’90s as we revisit all four Star Trek: The Next Generation movies including Generations, First Contact, Insurrection and Nemesis. Star Trek pseudo-expert Reed Farrington joins us for this nearly four hour journey as we discuss such cerebral topics as time travel paradoxes, the feasibility of TNG’s future technology, the appeal of various Star Trek uniforms, the limitations of the Prime Directive, the show’s evolution to a feature film franchise and the directorial skill of Two Takes Frakes. Are characters killed and resurrected every time they go through a transporter? Does the Borg Queen go against the entire concept of The Borg? Why did The Original Series movies succeed where so many of The Next Generation movies failed? Make it so and download this month’s premium podcast below.
