Star Trek Beyond
In this episode:
- Void and Beej discuss their lifelong
histories with the Star Trek franchise. Beej was introduced to The
Original Series by his father when he was a wee tot, and Void found
The Next Generation in syndication, eventually coming to Voyage
with his family.
- Both guys are big fans of the Abrams
reboots, and can appreciate how the TV and film franchises are
split between the Prime universe and the Kelvin universe. That way
both purists are happy, and so are mainstream fans.
- Regarding Star Trek Beyond, there are
lots of spoilers in this cast, but we do tell listeners when they
start. You can be sure that the first third to half of the show are
spoiler-free, and then we dig in on the new movie.
- Overall impressions: Star Trek Beyond
are beyond positive (heh heh, get it?), and we think the series has
hit its stride. We had our origin for the universe in 2009, and
Into Darkness was a decent rehash of Wrath of Khan that established
this new timeline, and Beyond takes this series into new territory,
even beginning 3 years after the last movie ended so as to not
overlap with any of The Original Series’ storylines. It’s a
full-fledged Star Trek adventure, and while it’s not perfect, it’s
fun, and we can’t wait to see it again.
