Episode 5: A Star Trek Hello

Episode 5: A Star Trek Hello Star Trek once again says “Hello” to the small screen with the first two episodes of Star Trek: Discovery.

This week, Steve is joined by author, actor, editor, archivist, consultant, interviewer and producer Larry Nemecek.

In this episode Steve and Larry talk about Star Trek Discovery’s episodes “The Vulcan Hello” and “Battle at the Binary Stars“.

Talking points include everything from Star Trek on the small screen to the big screen, to the timeline, streaming, Klingons, ships, characters and story!

Please make sure that you have watched both Discovery episodes before listening to the show – as we’re reviewing the show’s episodes so there will of course be lots of spoilers!
