Episode 55: Technology in primitive cultures (DIS 5×06 Whistlespeak)
Kev and Rob whistle their way through the "fun run" on Halem’no as they discuss "Whistlespeak", but are wise enough not to step into the rain-making machine at the finish line. Instead, they revisit past instances of primitive cultures unknowingly blended with advanced technology, including "The Apple" (TOS), "For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky" (TOS), and "Caretaker" (VOY).DIS 5×06 WhistlespeakPrime directiveHugh CulberTOS 2×09 The AppleVaalTOS 3×10 For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the SkySee also Subspace Radio #11 In love with an alienVOY 1×01/02 CaretakerOcampaKes TOS 3×06 Spock’s Brain (00:00) - Episode 55: Technology in primitive cultures (DIS 5×06 Whistlespeak) (00:30) - DIS 5×06 Whistlespeak (14:17) - Technology in primitive culturesa (15:37) - TOS 2×09 The Apple (26:21) - TOS 3×10 For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky (37:04) - VOY 1×01/02 Caretaker (47:15) - Outro (48:56) - Bonus Music: Distänt Mind, Brigitte Handley

Episode 54: The Mirror Universe (DIS 5×05 Mirrors)
Rob and Kev switch on the holographic blind on their Breen loading dock to discuss "Mirrors", which turned out not to be quite the contribution to Mirror Universe lore they were expecting. To make up for it, they revisit all the other appearances of the Mirror Universe, including "Mirror, Mirror" (TOS), "Crossover" (DS9), "Through the Looking Glass" (DS9), "Shattered Mirror" (DS9), "Resurrection" (DS9), "The Emperor's New Cloak" (DS9), and "In a Mirror, Darkly, Parts I & II" (ENT). They also briefly reflect (!) on Discovery's sojourn in the Mirror Universe in season one of that show.DIS 5×05 MirrorsMollL’akISS EnterpriseCarmen ChoVellekJoann OwosekunKeyla DetmerGen RhysBreenCleveland Booker (namesake)Curzon DaxThe Original SeriesTOS 2×10 Mirror, MirrorSee also Subspace Radio #4: Remembering Nichelle NicholsDeep Space NineDS9 2×23 CrossoverJennifer Sisko (mirror)Kira Nerys (mirror)DS9 3×19 Through the Looking GlassDS9 4×20 Shattered MirrorWorf (mirror)DS9 6×08 ResurrectionBareil Antos (mirror)DS9 7×12 The Emperor’s New CloakBrunt (mirror)EnterpriseENT 4×18-19 In a Mirror, Darkly & In a Mirror, Darkly, Part IITOS 3×09 The Tholian WebUSS Defiant (NCC-1764)Gorn DiscoveryDIS 1×10 Despite YourselfDIS 1×11 The Wolf InsideDIS 1×12 Vaulting AmbitionDIS 1x13 What’s Past Is PrologueGabriel Lorca (mirror) (00:00) - Episode 54: The Mirror Universe (DIS 5×05 Mirrors) (01:37) - DIS 5×05 Mirrors (24:07) - TOS 2×10 Mirror, Mirror (29:01) - DS9 2×23 Crossover (36:02) - DS9 3×19 Through the Looking Glass (37:37) - DS9 4×20 Shattered Mirror (38:34) - DS9 6×08 Resurrection (39:19) - DS9 7×12 The Emperor's New Cloak (42:25) - ENT 4×18-19 In a Mirror, Darkly (53:01) - Discovery Season One (56:09) - Wrap Up Music: Distänt Mind, Brigitte Handley

Episode 53: Trapped in time (DIS 5×04 Face the Strange)
Kev and Rob are unfazed by the time-travel shenanigans this week in "Face the Strange", accustomed as they are to weaving their way through the history of the Star Trek Universe. Inspired to revisit other times our characters became stuck revisiting other times, they discuss "Time Squared" (TNG), "The Visitor" (DS9), "Timescape" (TNG), and "Shattered" (VOY).DIS 5×04 Face the StrangeAiriamTNG 3×15 Yesterday’s EnterpriseNilssonDIS 1×07 Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go MadST 1×02 CalypsoFirefly 1×08 Out of GasTrapped in timeBrannon BragaTOS 3×13 Wink of an EyeTOS 3×23 All Our YesterdaysTNG 2×13 Time SquaredTNG 5×18 Cause and Effect (see also Subspace Radio #0)DS9 4×03 The VisitorVOY 5×06 TimelessTNG 6×25 TimescapeVOY 7×11 ShatteredIchebPIC 1×05 Stardust City Rag(00:00) - Episode 53: Trapped in time (DIS 5×04 Face the Strange) (00:57) - DIS 5×04 Face the Strange (13:29) - Trapped in time (21:56) - DS9 4×03 The Visitor (28:59) - TNG 6×25 Timescape (34:48) - VOY 7×11 Shattered Music: Distänt Mind, Brigitte Handley

Episode 52: Joined Trill (DIS 5×03 Jinaal)
After defeating the cloak-bees of the dimly-lit rock quarries of Trill, Rob and Kev take a stroll down the lane (or a swim up the milky river?) of Trill history, discussing all of the joined Trill that they have encountered in their travels. They discuss "Facets" (DS9), "Rejoined" (DS9) and "The Host" (TNG).DIS 5×03 JinaalDIS 3×04 Forget Me NotZhian'tara ritualDS9 3×25 FacetsDIS 4×03 Choose to LiveGray TalTAS 1×02 YesteryearMatt’s So-Cast Pod: A podcast about My So-Called LifeDS9 3×25 FacetsDS9 4x10 Our Man BashirDS9 7x15 Badda-Bing, Badda-BangDS9 6x13 Far Beyond the Stars – see also Subspace Radio #0 Mixing it UpLela DaxTobin DaxEmony DaxLeonard McCoyAudrid DaxTorias DaxLenara KahnJoran DaxDS9 7×13 Field of FireDS9 3×04 EquilibriumCurzon DaxDS9 2×17 Playing GodJadzia DaxEzri DaxDS9 4×06 RejoinedLenara KahnNilani KahnTNG 4×23 The HostSee also Subspace Radio #33 Canon retconsVeradDS9 2×04 Invasive ProceduresTuvixYedrin DaxDS9 5×22 Children of Time(00:00) - Episode 52: Joined Trill (DIS 5×03 Jinaal) (00:16) - DIS 5×03 Jinaal (27:09) - Joined Trill (29:44) - DS9 3×25 Facets (40:19) - DS9 4×06 Rejoined (46:27) - TNG 4×23 The Host (52:04) - Outro Music: Distänt Mind, Brigitte Handley

Episode 51: Starships bumping into planets (DIS 5×01 Red Directive, DIS 5×02 Under the Twin Moons)
Kev & Rob are back to finally, unbelievably, talk about Star Trek: Discovery for the very first time! The events of "Red Directive" (DIS) see them reflecting on other times starships have "nosed down" into the unforgiving soil of a world, alien or otherwise. They discuss "Star Trek Into Darkness", "Timeless" (VOY), and "Star Trek Generations".DIS 5×01 Red DirectiveTNG 6×20 The Chase – see also Subspace Radio #37 Activating alien artifactsTOS 3×03 The Paradise Syndrome – see also Subspace Radio #37 Activating alien artifactsVellekFemale ChangelingDIS 5×02 Under the Twin MoonsStar Trek Into DarknessUSS VengeanceJohn Harrison (John Harriman was captain of the USS Enterprise B)VOY 5×06 TimelessStar Trek GenerationsVeridian III(00:00) - Episode 51: Starships bumping into planets (DIS 5×01 Red Directive, DIS 5×02 Under the Twin Moons) (01:54) - DIS 5×01 Red Directive (31:18) - DIS 5×02 Under the Twin Moons (51:48) - Crashing starships (52:04) - Star Trek Into Darkness – USS Vengeance crashes into San Francisco (58:14) - VOY 5×06 Timeless – USS Voyager crashes on a Class L planet (01:04:27) - Star Trek Generations – USS Enterprise D crashes into Veridian III (01:09:37) - Outro Music: Distänt Mind, Brigitte Handley

Episode 50: Star Trek V commentary
To celebrate our fiftieth episode, we break from our usual format to record an audio commentary for Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, arguably the least successful Star Trek film, but not without its charms (and an especially charming Vulcan!).We'll return with more Subspace Radio when new Trek returns to our screens in April for Star Trek: Discovery's final season.

Episode 49: Barriers in space (LD 4×10 Old Friends, New Planets)
Kev & Rob approach the infinitely wide, unfathomably tall, impenetrable barrier that is the end of Star Trek: Lower Decks, Season Four, "Old Friends, New Planets". Among the many tangents they explore this episode, they focus in on other barriers in space, including "Where No Man Has Gone Before" (TOS), "The Tholian Web" (TOS), "Encounter at Farpoint" (TNG), and "The Galactic Barrier" (DIS).

Episode 48: Aliens working together (LD 4×09 The Inner Fight)
Rob & Kev fend off their inner demons, take shelter from a patch of knife rain, and watch "The Inner Fight", the penultimate episode of season four of Star Trek: Lower Decks. Inspired by Mariner's ability to unite the clashing aliens trapped on Sherbal V, they discuss other conspicuous occasions of multi-species alliances in Star Trek, including "The Time Trap" (TAS), the Dominion War (DS9), "The Enemy" (TNG), "Allegiance" (TNG), and the production design of sets and locations like the Promenade (DS9).LD 4×09 The Inner FightTNG 5×25 The Inner LightTNG 5×19 The First DutySito JaxaTNG 7×15 Lower DecksNew AxtonSherbal VBalok from TOS 1×02 The Corbobite ManeuverThe Dancing DoctorThomas RikerNick LocarnoTAS 1×12 The Time TrapSubspace Radio #20: Star Trek: The Animated SeriesDominion WarDS9 4×01 The Way of the WarriorDS9 6×19 In The Pale MoonlightTNG 3×07 The EnemyGalorndon CoreTomalakTNG 3×18 AllegianceChalnothA British TarThe PromenadeStar Trek IV: The Voyage HomeStar Trek III: The Search for SpockStar Trek V: The Final FrontierRosetta Stone prop(00:00) - Episode 48: Aliens working together (LD 4×09 The Inner Fight) (12:38) - Aliens working together (13:20) - TAS 1×12 The Time Trap (19:20) - The shifting alliances of the Dominion War (24:21) - TNG 3×07 The Enemy (30:40) - TNG 3×18 Allegiance (34:09) - The Promenade Music: Distänt Mind, Brigitte Handley

Episode 47: Cave episodes (LD 4×08 Caves)
Kev & Rob get stuck in a cave and are forced to pass the time awaiting rescue discussing "Caves". As their supplies dwindle, they plumb the hidden depths of other cave-based episodes from Star Trek history, including "The Devil in the Dark" (TOS), "Heart of Stone" (DS9), "Final Mission" (TNG), and "Waltz" (DS9).LD 4×08 CavesVendorians in TAS 1×06 The SurvivorLD 1×01 Second ContactTOS 1×26 The Devil in the DarkHortaDS9 3×14 Heart of StoneNogTNG 4×09 Final MissionTNG 1×23 Skin of EvilParamount Stage 16TNG 2×17 Samaritan SnareDS9 6×11 WaltzGul DukatMarc AlaimoTNG 1×07 Lonely Among UsTNG 5×26 Time’s ArrowDS9 1×19 Duet(00:00) - Episode 47: Cave episodes (LD 4×08 Caves) (00:48) - LD 4×08 Caves (05:36) - Cave episodes (05:53) - TOS 1×26 The Devil in the Dark (11:22) - DS9 3×14 Heart of Stone (17:06) - TNG 4×09 Final Mission (25:52) - DS9 6×11 Waltz Music: Distänt Mind, Brigitte Handley

Episode 46: Evil computers & AIs (LD 4×07 A Few Badgeys More)
Rob & Kev consult their robotic overlord for its opinion on "A Few Badgeys More", before discussing other episodes where the forces of evil aligned against our heroes were artificial in nature: "The Return of the Archons" (TOS), "Star Trek: The Motion Picture", "The Ultimate Computer" (TOS) and "Prototype" (VOY).

Kev & Rob back up their truck of gold pressed latinum to Uncle Quark's Youth Casino in "Parth Ferengi's Heart Place", then stay for the haggling at the Museum of Gambling (and the gambling at the Museum of Haggling), and compare their picks for the best Ferengi-centric episode, "Ménage à Troi" (TNG) and "The Magnificent Ferengi" (DS9).

Episode 43: Wedding traditions (LD 4×04 Something Borrowed, Something Green)
Kev & Rob are swept away in the romance (and the repeated stabbings) of "Something Borrowed, Something Green", and narrowly avoid the "hump dungeon" on their way to exploring other wedding traditions in Star Trek, including "Data's Day" (TNG) and "You Are Cordially Invited" (DS9).LD 4×04 Something Borrowed, Something GreenTOS 2×05 Amok TimeLD 2×03 We’ll Always Have Tom ParisAndy BillupsENT 4×04 BorderlandENT 4×17 BoundTAS 2×01 The Pirates of OrionTOS 0×01 The CageTOS 1×16 The Menagerie, Part IIVinaD’Erika TendiB'Rt TendiT’LynSeven of NineSamuel Clemens / Mark TwainTNG 5×26 Time's ArrowChalnothTNG 3×18 AllegianceTNG 4×11 Data’s DayDS9 6×07 You Are Cordially InvitedAlexander RozhenkoSirellaB’Elanna TorresTom ParisV’Shal DinnerDIS 3×04 Forget Me NotBetazoid weddingTNG 1×11 Haven(00:00) - Episode 43: Wedding traditions (LD 4×04 Something Borrowed, Something Green) (00:25) - LD 4×04 Something Borrowed, Something Green (13:30) - Wedding traditions (16:40) - DS9 6×07 You Are Cordially Invited Music: Distänt Mind, Brigitte Handley

Episode 42: Lessons in Leadership (LD 4×03 In the Cradle of Vexilon)
Rob & Kev planned to turn this entire episode over to a friendly computer super-intelligence, but it was down for a software update, so they recorded their thoughts on "In the Cradle of Vexilon" all by themselves. Prompted by the hard lesson learned by Boimler during his first command, they explore other lessons in leadership from Star Treks past, including "The Galileo Seven" (TOS), "Good Shepherd" (VOY), "Pen Pals" (TNG), and "Valiant" (DS9).Strange New Worlds stardatesLD 4×03 In the Cradle of VexilonDyson SphereTNG 6×04 RelicsNomadTNG 5×25 The Inner LightTom SalinskyDS9 7×15 Badda-Bing, Badda-BangDS9 5×06 Trials and Tribble-ationsDS9 4×01/02 The Way of the WarriorChula (the Alamarein game)T’AnaTOS 1×13 The Galileo SevenShuttles GalileoPRO 1×13 All The World’s a StageGarrovickVOY 6×20 Good ShepherdJoe CareyJay UnderwoodTom MorelloTNG 5×05 DisasterTNG 2×15 Pen PalsTNG 2×09 The Measure of a ManSubspace Radio #32: Courtroom DramasDS9 6×22 ValiantUSS Defiant (2370)USS Defiant (2375)Red SquadTim WattersNova Squadron(00:00) - Episode 42: Lessons in Leadership (LD 4×03 In the Cradle of Vexilon) (14:58) - TOS 1×13 The Galileo Seven (24:45) - VOY 6×20 Good Shepherd (34:19) - TNG 2×15 Pen Pals (40:33) - DS9 6×22 Valiant Music: Distänt Mind, Brigitte Handley

Kev & Rob narrowly avoid being merged in a transporter accident, and inspired by "I Have No Bones Yet I Must Flee", pay a visit to the menagerie of episodes in which humanity is put in a cage, including "The Eye of the Beholder" (TAS), "The Cage" (TOS), and "I, Mudd" (TOS).

Rob & Kev float through the highlights of the season two finale of Strange New Worlds, "Hegemony", before seeking out other instances of our characters floating in zero gravity, including "Star Trek: First Contact", "Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country", and the Enterprise NX-01's "sweet spot".SNW 2×10 HegemonyTOS 1×19 ArenaVasquez RocksRe-Uses of the Vasquez Rocks LocationMarie BatelParnassus BetaStar Trek RetrospectivesSNW 1×09 All Those Who WanderTNG 3×26 The Best of Both WorldsMontgomery ScottSNW 1×10 A Quality of MercyB'Elanna TorresPeter Preston“I know this ship like the back of my hand.”SNW 1×04 Momento MoriDouble red alertTOS 1×12 The Conscience of the KingStar Trek: First ContactFirst Contact Production: The Deflector DishStar Trek VI: The Undiscovered CountryKronos OneENT 1×01 Broken BowSweet spotENT 2×20 Horizon(00:00) - Episode 40: Zero G (SNW 2×10 Hegemony) (00:32) - SNW 2×10 Hegemony (21:26) - Zero G (22:06) - Star Trek: First Contact (24:14) - Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (29:43) - Enterprise: the sweet spot (35:24) - Bonus: Further thoughts on Subspace Rhapsody Music: Distänt Mind, Brigitte Handley

Episode 39: Camp Trek (SNW 2×09 Subspace Rhapsody)
Kev & Rob agree that "Subspace Rhapsody" had its charms, but didn't quite live up to the hype, and that its best moment was a scene without a song at all! Taking the cue of this musical episode, they both agree that "Bride of Chaotica!" (VOY) is the last time going over the top into silliness was the point of an episode, and they talk through its highlights in detail. Finally, as a bonus, Rob re-watched Star Trek III: The Search for Spock and was surprised by how much he enjoyed it!SNW 2×09 Subspace RhapsodyBuffy the Vampire Slayer: Once More, with FeelingThe Flash: DuetRiverdale musical episodesThe Magicians musical episodesCarol MarcusStar Trek II: The Wrath of KhanDavid MarcusTOS 1×15 The Menagerie, Part IDS9 7×08 The Siege of AR-558VOY 5×12 Bride of Chaotica!DS9 4×10 Our Man BashirArachniaSatan’s RobotThe Delta FlyersChez SandrineVOY 6×11 Fair HavenOther camp episodesTOS 3×20 The Way to EdenTOS 2×13 The Trouble with TribblesDS9 7×04 Take Me Out to the HolosuiteBruce HorakStar Trek III: The Search for Spock(00:00) - Episode 39: Camp Trek (SNW 2×09 Subspace Rhapsody) (18:57) - VOY 5×12 Bride of Chaotica!

Rob & Kev need a sonic shower after the slow march through the Federation-Klingon war and its ugly consequences that was "Under the Cloak of War". Reflecting on the Federation at war, they look back at "Yesterday's Enterprise" (TNG) and "The Siege of AR-558" (DS9).SNW 2×07 Under the Cloak of WarM’Benga appearances in TOSMark PiperPhil BoyceClint Howard in DiscoveryGorkonSNW 2×01 The Broken CircleSection 31TNG 3×15 Yesterday’s EnterpriseRachel GarrettDS9 6×19 In The Pale MoonlightDS9 7×08 The Siege of AR-558Subspace Radio #27: Taken OverBill MumyBabylon 5: The Road HomeLennier in Babylon 5MASH 10×17 Where There’s a Will, There’s a War(00:00) - Episode 39: War stories (SNW 2×08 Under the Cloak of War) (00:25) - SNW 2×08 Under the Cloak of War (16:44) - War stories (17:14) - TNG 3×15 Yesterday's Enterprise (19:48) - DS9 6×19 In The Pale Moonlight (20:18) - DS9 7×08 The Siege of AR-558 Music: Distänt Mind, Brigitte Handley

Kev & Rob would happily give several kilograms of heronium to get to see "Those Old Scientists" again for the first time. They talk through this crossover episode that had no business being as good as it was, before seeking out other examples of alien artifacts whose activation (or difficulty in activating) is a key point in an episode, including "Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad" (DIS) and "The Paradise Syndrome" (TOS).TOS 2×07 Those Old ScientistsDS9 5×06 Trials and Tribble-ationsSpace bugSpace koalaTNG 4×05 Remember MeDIS 1×07 Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go MadTime crystalHarcourt Fenton MuddDIS 1×05 Choose Your PainAsh TylerDIS 2×12 Through the Valley of ShadowsTOS 3×03 The Paradise SyndromeSubspace Radio #37: Memory LossKirokOrbs of the ProphetsPreservers’ obeliskTNG 6×20 The Chase(00:00) - Episode 37: Activating alien artifacts (SNW 2×07 Those Old Scientists) (01:00) - SNW 2×07 Those Old Scientists (17:18) - DIS 1×07 Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad (24:25) - TOS 3×03 The Paradise Syndrome Music: Distänt Mind, Brigitte Handley

Episode 36: Understanding non-humanoid life (SNW 2×06 Lost in Translation)
Rob & Kev squint but fail to spot the USS Farragut in "Lost in Translation", despite its soon-to-be first officer hanging around the Enterprise like he knows he's going to work there someday! After a quick debrief on this week's episode, they consider two other prominent instances of communication difficulties when encountering non-humanoid life: "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home", and "Home Soil" (TNG).SNW 2×06 Lost in TranslationHow Long Can Captain Kirk Stay On Strange New Worlds?Star Trek: First Contact – Millennium Falcon42Red WeddingSNW 2×04 Among the Lotus EatersStar Trek IV: The Voyage HomeNeutroniumLD 1×01 Second ContactGeorge and GracieTNG 1×18 Home SoilJerry OrbachProject Genesis(00:00) - Episode 36: Understanding non-humanoid life (SNW 2×06 Lost in Translation) (01:37) - SNW 2×06 Lost in Translation (14:20) - Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (20:59) - TNG 1×18 Home Soil Music: Distänt Mind, Brigitte Handley

Episode 35: Vulcans are Jerks (SNW 2×05 Charades)
Kev & Rob gush at the one-two punch of comedy and heartbreak delivered by "Charades" before breaking down the several different ways in which Vulcans are such jerks, revisiting "The Forge", "Awakening" and "Kir'Shara" (ENT), "Take Me Out to the Holosuite" (DS9), and "Journey to Babel" (TOS).SNW 2×05 CharadesDoctor Who: The Empty Child, The Doctor DancesSNW 1×05 Spock AmokStar Trek GenerationsMia Kirshner as Amanda GraysonExoticaLove & Human RemainsThe Crow: City of AngelsThe L WordRoger KorbyTOS 1×09 What Are Little Girls Made Of?TOS 2×05 Amok TimeSubspace Radio #8: Sex in Star TrekVulcans are JerksRemembering Manny Coto, 1961-2023ENT 4×07-09  The Forge / Awakening / Kir’SharaENT 1×01-02 Broken BowT’PauDS9 7×04 Take Me Out to the HolosuiteSee also Subspace Radio #0: Mixing it up and Subspace Radio #18: The HolodeckTOS 2×15 Journey to BabelSarekTNG 3×23 Sarek(00:00) - Episode 35: Vulcans are Jerks (SNW 2×05 Charades) (00:13) - SNW 2×05 Charades (17:30) - Vulcans are Jerks (18:44) - ENT 4×07-08 The Forge / Awakening / Kir'Shara (30:27) - DS9 7×04 Take Me Out to the Holosuite (33:25) - TOS 2×15 Journey to Babel Music: Distänt Mind, Brigitte Handley

Episode 34: Memory Loss (SNW 2×04 Among The Lotus Eaters)
Rob & Kev nearly lose themselves in their analysis of "Among the Lotus Eaters", before dipping into other instances of our lead characters losing their memories, in "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home", "The Changeling" (TOS), and "Conundrum" (TNG).SNW 2×04 Among the Lotus EatersStar Trek IV: The Voyage HomeAmanda GraysonSpock’s memory testKatraTOS 2×08 The ChangelingTNG 5×14 ConundrumEternal Sunshine of The Spotless MindTNG 4×14 Clues(00:00) - Episode 34: Memory Loss (SNW 2×04 Among The Lotus Eaters) (00:56) - SNW 2×04 Among the Lotus Eaters (11:48) - Memory Loss (12:13) - Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (18:25) - TNG 5×14 Conundrum Music: Distänt Mind, Brigitte Handley

Episode 33: Canon Retcons (SNW 2×03 Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow)
Kev & Rob are surprisingly okay with "Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow"'s revelations about where exactly in the timeline certain ill-fated experiments took place. In celebration, they explore two other significant rewritings, or retrospective continuity changes (retcons) that Star Trek has indulged in in the past, including "Affliction" and "Divergence" (ENT), and "The Host" (TNG).SNW 2×03 Tomorrow and Tomorrow and TomorrowTOS 3×23 All Our YesterdaysEugenics WarsDoctor Who 6×06 A Good Man Goes to WarJames T.

Episode 32: Courtroom Dramas (SNW 2×02 Ad Astra per Aspera)
Rob & Kev agree to overrule all objections about the trial of Una Chin-Riley in "Ad Astra per Aspera". They then explore the legal precedents for excellent courtroom dramas in Star Trek, including "Judgment" (ENT), "Court Martial" (TOS), "Dax" (DS9), and "The Measure of a Man" (TNG). Finally, they commiserate following the shock announcement that Star Trek: Prodigy has been cancelled prior to the airing of season two on Paramount+ and Nickelodeon.SNW 2×02 Ad Astra per AsperaYetide Badaki as Neera KetoulRobert AprilJulian BashirEugenics WarsTOS 1×24 Space SeedCourtroom dramas ENT 2×19 JudgmentThe Lost Star Trek Audio Commentary TracksStar Trek VI: The Undiscovered CountryMartokJ.G.

Episode 31: When the Captain's Away (SNW 2×01 The Broken Circle)
Kev & Rob celebrate the return of Strange New Worlds by punching a corridor full of Klingons before sitting down to share their thoughts about "The Broken Circle". They then explore other notable examples of crews operating without their Captain (or station Commander, as the case may be!) in "The Tholian Web" (TOS), "Family Business" (DS9), "Little Green Men" (DS9), "Two Days and Two Nights" (ENT), and "The Quickening" (DS9).SNW 2×01 The Broken CircleJefferies TubeCrossfield classTOS 3×09 The Tholian WebDS9 3×23 Family BusinessMoogieKasidy YatesDS9 4×08 Little Green MenTNG 6×10 Chain of CommandTNG 3×19 Captain’s HolidayStar Trek INtakes: Let Sleeping Doctors LieDS9 4×24 The QuickeningMusic: Distänt Mind, Brigitte Handley

Episode 30: Big Finishes (PIC 3×10 The Last Generation)
Much like "The Last Generation", this Subspace Radio had about 40 minutes of footage cut out of it, and it's *still* a double-length episode! Rob & Kev comb through every morsel of the series finale of Star Trek: Picard, before turning back the clock to other finale episodes of series past, including "All Good Things…" (TNG), "What You Leave Behind" (DS9), "Endgame" (VOY) and "These Are the Voyages…" (ENT).PIC 3×10 The Last GenerationPlanetary distress signalPavel ChekovAnton ChekovPRO 1×12 Let Sleeping Borg LieTNG 7×25/26 All Good Things…TNG 1×01/02 Encounter at FarpointDS9 7×25/26 What You Leave BehindVOY 7×25/26 EndgameENT 4×22 These Are the Voyages…TNG 7×12 The PegasusStar Trek NemesisMusic: Distänt Mind, Brigitte Handley

Episode 29: DNA Shenanigans (PIC 3×09 Võx)
Rob & Kev sequence the genome of "Võx", the penultimate episode of Star Trek: Picard. Then, agreeing the Changleing plot to re-sequence the DNA of every member of Starfleet was a lot to take in, they set out to trace the twin helix of DNA as a plot point in Star Trek. They discuss "Genesis" (TNG), the Jem'Hadar (DS9), "Threshold" (VOY), and "Vaulting Ambition" (DIS).PIC 3×09 VõxBattle of Wolf 359Irumodic syndromeElizabeth ShelbyWill Wheaton touring the bridge of the Enterprise DTNG 7×19 GenesisJem’HadarKetracel-whiteVortaVOY 2×15 ThresholdDIS 1×12 Vaulting AmbitionAsh TylerVoq(00:00) - Episode 29: DNA Shenanigans (PIC 3×09 Võx) (00:23) - PIC 3×09 Võx (36:57) - DNA Shenanigans (41:21) - TNG 7×19 Genesis (52:34) - VOY 2×15 Threshold (59:28) - DIS 1×12 Vaulting Ambition Music: Distänt Mind, Brigitte Handley

Episode 28: We Hardly Knew Ye (PIC 3×08 Surrender)
Kev & Rob find a lot to talk about in "Surrender", an episode where relatively little happened. Vadic's sudden decision to phaser a member of the bridge crew whose name we hadn't even heard before leads them to contemplate other times background characters made the ultimate sacrifice and made an impression (or didn't) in the process. From Voyager they discuss Hogan ("Basics, Part II"), Pete Durst ("Faces"), and Joe Carey ("Friendship One"). Then they bemoan the wasted opportunity of that was Discovery's Airiam ("Project Daedalus").PIC 3×08 SurrenderEmergency hatchIliaThe Captains’ SummitMinor Character DeathsSR 1: The Red Shirt ProblemHoganVOY 3×01 Basics, Part IIVOY 3×23 Distant OriginLieutenant Pete DurstVOY 1×13 CathexisVOY 1×14 FacesCasualties, USS VoyagerLieutenant Joe CareyVOY 7×24 Friendship OneLieutenant Commander AiriamDIS 2×09 Project Daedalus(00:00) - Episode 28: We Hardly Knew Ye (PIC 3×08 Surrender) (00:55) - PIC 3×08 Surrender a (27:27) - Minor Character Deaths (29:20) - Hogan (35:29) - Lt.

Episode 27: Taken Over (PIC 3×07 Dominion)
Rob & Kev are getting some distinctly cybernetic vibes about Crusher & Picard's son Jack as they contemplate Section 31's worst plan yet in "Dominion". Vadic's commandeering of the Titan prompts them to revisit other times our Starfleet heroes lost control of their ships (and space stations) to the opposition, in "Star Trek: First Contact", "Rascals" (TNG), "Call to Arms" (DS9), and "Basics, Part I & II" (VOY).PIC 3×07 DominionTuvokChin’toka systemDS8 7×08 The Siege of AR-558OdoDoctor Mora PolStar Trek: First ContactTNG 6×07 RascalsStar Trek III: The Search for SpockKrugeDS9 5×26 Call to ArmsDS9 6×06 Sacrifice of AngelsVOY 2×26 Basics, Part I(00:00) - Episode 27: Taken Over (PIC 3×07 Dominion) (01:09) - PIC 3×07 Dominion (24:41) - Ship Takeoversz (24:53) - Star Trek: First Contact (27:43) - TNG 6×07 Rascals (33:24) - DS9 5×26 Call to Arms (38:51) - VOY 2×26 Basics Music: Distänt Mind, Brigitte Handley

Episode 26: Sneaking In (PIC 3×06 The Bounty)
Kev & Rob both wish that the production of Star Trek: Picard Season 3 could have afforded just one more set this week as a very special Klingon Bird-of-Prey makes its return to the screen in "The Bounty". After watching a small team infiltrate Daystrom Station, they reflect on other times our intrepid crews have sneaked in where they didn't belong, including "Chain Of Command, Part I" (TNG), "By Inferno's Light" (DS9), "Change Of Heart" (DS9), and "Extreme Measures" (DS9).PIC 3×06 The BountyStar Trek IV: The Voyage HomeIrumodic SyndromeGenesis DeviceJames T.
