On the other hand, for some variety, there's a podcast called Treknologic that reviews episodes semi-randomly from every series, along with special episodes of reviewing other shows or movies as long as they involve time travel (They even did one MLP episode.  Bronies will know which one.)  It's kind of fun, they never claim to be experts, though sometimes they try a little too hard to roleplay and be funny.

Listened to a few of these and like them much better, much better (more intelligent) analysis, and when they nitpick it's done in a fun way.

My favorite trek reviewer is SFDebris.  Manages to make a humors review and insightful review in one.  Can be funny even when reviewing good episodes, and really only bashes the really terrible ones that everyone bashes.  Ranks every episode on a 0-10 scale and only by comparison to other episodes in that series, not the franchise as a whole.  With that said he will compare and contrast series, mostly DS9 and Voyager since they were handled by two very different teams.

He does episodes very randomly from all series.  He started with his reviews of Voyager, so you will find a lot more of those reviewed than other series.


Fuck yeah.  I'd watch "The Weasel and Stretch" in a heartbeat!

I was bieng threated with death by wolf raping before it was cool!.

Tried SFDebris but the way the guy talks gets on my nerves.  I think maybe he's reading a script, the cadence seems that way.  The wall of words all in the same tone is too much for me.

So, Treknologic is the winner as far as I am concerned.

The only thing I don't like about Treknologic is the way they roleplay their parts sometimes, consisting of one crew member asking a question and another saying "Well..." before a long pause.  It's not a huge thing, but a minor annoyance that I keep hoping they get away from as they get more experience improving jokes and dialog.

I've listened to 4 or 5 of them so far and have noticed that a bit, I think only once I've wanted them to "get on with it" so it doesn't bother me that much.

I might notice it more because for awhile I was listening to several episodes a day trying to get caught up.  When I pick up a new podcast I almost always binge on it.  I have a playlist of over 270 on my iPod right now because I'm listening to all of Sklarbro Country/County and Ten Minute Podcast while trying to keep up with all the other subscriptions I have.

I'm that way with American Pickers, I like the show a lot but if I watch too many in a row there's a point where I start finding the guys very annoying.  Some shows are best with some space in between them.

I'm hearing rumors now that Season 6 of TNG won't be released until June :speechless:

Possibly due to CBS studios working on Season 4 of Enterprise which is slated for a April 29 release date..

Well darn.

Wasn't Enterprise shot/rendered in HD?  Shouldn't be that much work to put that out on Blu-Ray.

I wonder if there are other issues, like finding the film or more effects that have to be redone.  The featurettes have said the film was not cataloged very well, a can marked for one show might have some small rolls with clips for several shows.

I didn't know about this ???

Michael Dorn Confirms He’s Working on a ‘Star Trek: Captain Worf’ TV Series

Geek favorites Bryan Fuller and Bryan Singer have been forthcoming about their hopes for bringing Star Trek back to the small screen, after the release of J.J. Abrams’ elusive sequel to his Trek movie reboot next summer. However, it turns out those two aren’t the only ones with big dreams about a new TV series set in that sci-fi universe – Michael Dorn is also taking steps to reprise his signature Trek role on a spinoff, tentatively titled Star Trek: Captain Worf.

Worf, Son of Mogh, of course, is the first Klingon main character on a Star Trek TV series. He appeared on The Next Generation throughout its seven-season run, then became a Deep Space Nine regular for its last four seasons. Dorn portrayed Worf in all four Next Generation films; in addition, he played Worf’s grandfather, Colonel Worf, in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

Rumors and reports about a prospective Worf spinoff began circulating earlier this year – which, perhaps not-so-coincidentally, marks the 25th anniversary of The Next Generation. Trek News caught up with recently with Dorn, who gave them the following exclusive “scoop” on the project:

    “I had come up with the idea because I love [Worf] and I think he’s a character that hasn’t been fully developed and hasn’t been fully realized. Once I started thinking about it, it became obvious to me that I wanted to at least put it out there, which I have, and the response has been pretty amazing. We’ve been contacted by different individuals–I can’t say who and all that–about wanting to come on board and be part of this. ”

Deep Space Nine concluded with Worf being made Federation ambassador to the Klingon homeworld, Qo’noS. An official prequel comic book to Abrams’ Trek reboot featured Worf as a Klingon Empire General, who battles the Romulan Captain Nero (Eric Bana, in Abrams’ film). Worf sustained life-threatening injuries during the encounter, but it was indicated he was still alive by the story’s conclusion.

Why This Controversial Star Trek TNG Episode Didn't Air

However, the overlap between events on DS9 and the Star Trek film continuity has always been kind of fuzzy; hence, it stands to reason that could also hold true for a Worf spinoff and the post-reboot movies. Dorn’s in the same boat of uncertainty as Fuller and Singer, when it comes to how his plans are affected by Abrams’ films – as he put it, “there’s all the political stuff going on with the new movies with J.J. Abrams and Paramount and all that stuff, which I have no clue about and what it all entails, but that’s where it is right now.”

star trek worf Michael Dorn Confirms Hes Working on a Star Trek: Captain Worf TV Series

The in-progress subtitle Captain Worf is open to interpretation, as far as indications for when, exactly, the TV series could take place. Such a Star Trek spinoff would, for certain, retain the ensemble format of its predecessors to some degree – with a focus on the adventures of Worf and a new group of space explorers. Morever, Dorn says the show isn’t so much a pipe dream as one might think (at first):

    “Interestingly enough it has gotten traction. I was very surprised, I was on a movie not too long ago, where one of the producers was basically lobbying to be part of it. He was like “Michael, I’d love to write it, if you haven’t.” So at this point, my agents and my manager are looking at all the avenues and trying to figure out which is the best one. My agent and manager have been in the business for awhile, so they’re very savvy about where to start and how to get it going. Like I said, in this business you never know and I’ve been through pitching things and I never want to do that again [laughs]. It’s pretty brutal, but definitely I think once again, if Paramount or CBS or anybody thinks this is a viable thing, they’ll jump on it.”

Worf’s Klingon manner and instincts often put him at odds with his fellow officers on The Next Generation, as hilariously highlighted in this 15-minute compilation video; still, there were a few episodes on DS9 that explored Worf’s personal sense of duty and honor beyond the surface level. Nonetheless, there does remain room for further development of the character – even given the substantial amount of backstory already in place for Worf.

However, as Dorn mentions above, the Star Trek: Captain Worf television series is far from getting an official greenlight right now. Nevertheless, we will keep you up-to-date on the situation as more information is released (or Dorn continues to talk about it).

I had heard of that scene shot with Scotty and Troi, when the writers explained why she gave him that hug goodbye in the final scene.
It will be great to see it, actually I'd like to see it back in the episode and not as an extra...

Really can't wait for this one, so many episodes that will look great in HD.
