What’s going on everyone? With only one new movie in release this weekend (Star Trek Into Darkness), Tank and I decided to make this week’s episode a Star Trek retrospective! To do so, we call in a special guest: Andrew Gelfman of NASA fame! Gelf’s actually had the good fortune to work with and meet William Shatner, and he’s a big Trek fan, so we thought he’d be great to have on! We review the latest film, then discuss our own recollections of the franchise, from TV series to films!
It’s a great episode and you won’t want to miss it! As always, you can download it directly, here, or search for us on iTunes or Stitcher radio by looking for (title pending) or Tank and Fogs!
Undeniably these two franchises are the biggest sci-fi franchises in pop culture history. Both heavily involve space travel and sci-fi concepts, and the fact that the both have the word “Star” in their names invited comparisons right from the beginning. This is truly a debate that’s been around for decades, and with the opening of a new chapter in one of the sagas this weekend, I thought it would be a good time to revisit it.
