Main Mission

Since there is no new Trek to talk about this episode, we thought it would be a good time to catch our breaths, sit around a table at Quarks, after hours of course, and discuss the current state of the Trekverse. 

End Of Show

It’s about time to refill the dilithium chamber and get on out of here.
