Starfleet Escape Podcast Episode 17 : "The Romulan Star Empire" & 18: "Star Trek (2009)" Available Now
This post contains two of the latest episodes from the Starfleet Escape PodCast on the Four Eyed Radio Network. First up, Aaron, Marty, and Eric discuss one of Star Trek’s greatest foes, the Romulans. We begin this episode talking about the latest news from the Trek universe including the new Vulcan characters in “Star Trek The Game,” “Star Trek Renegades” updates, the passing of Malachi Throne, and the upcoming wedding of Sir Patrick Stewart. We highlight another great “Would You Buy It?” from Bye Bye Robot and find out if the crew would buy it or not.
We’re pleased to announce episode 21 of our “Life After Trek” podcast, featuring Paul McGillion. Many of you know Paul from his work on Stargate: Atlantis as character Carson Beckett, but did you know that he also had a cameo in J.J. Abrams’s Star Trek and was even considered for the character of Scotty?...but I’m getting ahead of the game here. Being huge fans of Paul from his time on Atlantis and A Dog’s Breakfast (just to name a few), we were thrilled to chat with him to find out what he’s been up to lately.CONTINUE READING >>
William Shatner's Documentary "The Captains" Available For Streaming On Netflix; With Hidden Awesomeness
So I was cruising Netflix tonight, searching for Chuck Norris's The Delta Force (no lie!) and I stumbled upon William Shatner's documentary The Captains on Watch Instantly. You know the one; it features interviews with all six Star Trek captains... Patrick Stewart, Avery Brooks, Kate Mulgrew, Scott Bakula, and Chris Pine. Oh, and The Shat, of course. I've been meaning to sit down and watch The Captains since release back in July, but I just simply haven't made the time. Now that I have, here are a few takeaways; First, Patrick Stewart seems to be one of the most thoughtful and eloquent actors in the history of the stage, Kate Mulgrew is tough-as-nails and can hold her own with anyone, Avery Brooks is down right crazy & amazing all at the same time, Scott Bakula is extremely down-to-earth, and Chris Pine IS William Shatner 30 years younger. And on top of that, Patrick Stewart's chair is gigantically disproportionate to Shatner's.

We've said it once, and we'll say it a thousand times, Bruce Greenwood as Captain Christopher Pike was simply amazing in Star Trek XI. We would love to see him reprise the role as our beleaguered Captain, ahem, Admiral Pike. According to an interview with Collider.com, Bruce would also like to see Pike return in the upcoming sequel to "Star Trek". Not only in the sequel, but Bruce jokingly explains that "there should be a whole offshoot of Pike's adventures". We're with you there Bruce. Put us down for a Hamilton, we'd definitely be on board for that.CONTINUE READING >>
