Episode 3: Klingons Do Love A Candle

Episode 3: Klingons Do Love A Candle In Episode 3 of the New Horizons podcast, we turn our attention to one of the oldest foes in Star Trek lore, the Klingons.

We have seen many incarnations of the warrior race over the 51 years of Star Trek. Some have ridges, some do not; some have ridge rings and long flowing hair, some do not; but they all have one thing in common. They love a good candle!

Join us as we try and smooth out some of them ridges and make sense of this varied race.

Joining Steve this week is the New Horizon’s Executive Producer Colin and guest host Mike. Mike has spent many years podcasting discussing SciFi series Stargate on his Gatecast podcast and the Stargate Archives.

Don’t forget that we’d love to hear your thoughts on not only our discussions in this episode but your thoughts on Star Trek Discovery and what you’ve seen in the trailers so far.

Episode 2: This isn’t Voyager – It’s Star Trek Discovery!

New Horizons - Episode 2 This week on our second show, we delve into what we know so far about the Federation in relation to Star Trek Discovery.

We discuss the look and feel of the ships and uniforms, as well as some of the prominent characters we can expect to see flying the Federation flag.

The conversation also leads us to chat about the expanded universe and how, based on what we know from previous incarnations of Star Trek, the Star Trek Discovery books can add a rich extra layer to the show.

Oh, and Steve mentions Voyager one or twice or… forty-seven times!

Joining Steve this week is the New Horizon’s Executive Producer Colin and guest host Mike. Mike has spent nearly a decade covering Stargate on his Gatecast podcast and the Stargate Archives.

This episode’s confab is all based on what we’ve read in interviews, social media posts from crew, cast and conventions plus what we’ve seen in the trailers.

Talking about trailers – if you have not seen them yet and would like to, Steve wrote a blog about the Star Trek Discover trailers and where you can find them.

Don’t forget that we’d love to hear your thoughts on not only our discussions in this episode but your thoughts on Star Trek Discovery and what you’ve seen in the trailers so far.
