Subspace Chatter

Main Mission

Okay. Let’s assume Quentin Tarantino is actually going to direct a Star Trek film. What do we think about that?

  • Will it further alienate people with regards to how far the franchise has strayed from Gene’s vision?
  • Will it bring in a new audience?
  • Will it be a hot mess?
  • Who else’s Trek vision would you like to see brought to the screen?

Warp Speed Roundtable

Now that we’re safely back on board, it’s time to take on one rapid-fire topic in our Warp Speed Roundtable.

Name of Game

Pick a Pet, Round 2

Once again, listener Diane has presented us with a choice of which pet we would like to have. And she promises that this is a kinder, gentler selection than the one we did back in episode 7. By the way, if anyone out there has suggestions for our Warp Speed Roundtable, just go to our Facebook page and leave us a note.

So, back to Diane’s choices. Which of these would you rather have, and why?

  1. Dr. Phlox’s Pyrithian Bat

  2. Miles O’Brien’s Lycosa Tarantula, Christina

  3. Captain Picard’s Lionfish, Livingston
