Season 5, Episode 10: The Original Five-Year Mission

(Not So) Live from Asteroid G

We're talking Star TrekOriginally conceived as "Wagon Train in Space", Star Trek was released during the height of the Hollywood Western film and TV boom. While the concept CBS originally asked for had a western vibe, it was the smart, intellectual stories set in a future utopia of science and exploration that proved vital to the series' long impact on popular culture. in this episode of (Not So) Live from Asteroid G. We discuss Strange New Worlds, touching upon what made its first season. We then look at dumb fan-boys and why they're stupid to call Trek "woke", all before looking at all of Trek (and The Orville) once more.
