You all kept asking so we have delivered. Every Friday night at 21:00 UTC during Season 2 of Star Trek Discovery we will host a Friday night livestream chat to share our reaction to the episode, speculate what is happening all whilst indulging in Star Trek themed cocktails!
To make it a bit different from all the rest we're trying to keep it around 30 - 45 mins long and to include the following segments:
=^= Trek themed Cocktails =^= Trek-Bounding ideas (normal attire trekified) =^= What The Spock!? =^= Who's Meme is that anyway? =^=Disco Star of the week.
Our first livestream was a lot of fun as we discussed Angels, red signals and how to make Jippers (minus a beach). We currently stream to Facebook Live but hoping to stream to our Continue Reading ››
The first season of Star Trek Discovery was in our opinion the strongest opening of any Star Trek series.
The story about the soldier and the general which Burham narates was the perfect analogy for the first season. Burham experiences fear (the encounter with the Klingon) which creates a chain of events that happens very fast. Her actions to protect her Captain can be explained when we learn how her parents were killed by Klingons and the maternal relationship she has with Georgiou.
Looking back we realise how much empathy we have had with Burnham. We have been on this crazy journey with her. Michael and the crew have been on a warp speed, spore speed, non stop race against some deadly foes, they have been deceived, hurt and manipulated since day one. … Continue Reading ››
If you're fortunate enough to watch Star Trek Discovery in North America then you get the benefit of enjoying a respectable start time (Sunday evenings make for great TV watching) and the collective benefit of sharing your thoughts immediately with others either with After Trek or on social Media.
Whilst watching on Netflix certainly has its advantages, a launch time of Monday morning isn't exactly sociable or viable watching time for most. This results in many of us taking social media blackout mondays.
When we saw that many of the Discovery actors were partaking in a live tweet along to the season one finale, we felt more envious than Harry Kim at a promotion ceremony. So we are having our own!!
Join us and the following for our tweet along tomorrow night 20:00 GMT with: Sonequa Martin-Green, Mary Wise, Jason Isaacs, William Shatner,Damien - The Irish … Continue Reading ››
Highlight: Gary has a great sense of humour and is a complete contrast to Soval. So it was extra delightful when he went full on Vulcan at the end of the talk and give us the customary Vulcan greeting.
It's the 24th Sci-Fi Ball at the Grand Harbour Hotel Southampton which once again has an incredible line up. Representing Star Trek are Terry Farrell (Jadzia Dax, DS9), vic Mignogna (Captain Kirk, ST: Continues), Chris Doohan (ST 09, Into Darkness and St Continues) and Gary Graham (Ambassador Soval, ENT).
The event is on all weekend and we highly suggest you drop all your plans and join us.
The Trek Files - A brand new Roddenberry Star Trek Podcast hosted by Larry Nemecek aka "Dr Trek" begins TODAY!
If you have ever seen Larry at a convention or the material he shares online you'll see he is a living memory-alpha for all things Star Trek. And this is exactly what he'll be bringing to the weekly podcast.
What we love about it:
It's perfect for the 'deep divers'. Fans who are thirsty for more knowledge and obscure facts.
Fantastic guests. We can't wait for the D.C Fontana episode.
The title is genius.
Only 15 minutes. We miss out on many great podcasts because there simply isn't the time to listen. This gets straight to the point.
Here's what Larry and Rod have to say:
On each 15-minute episode, Nemecek will be joined by a guest to
Happy New Year to all our readers. Thank you for continuing to follow our Trek into fandom. Once again we have another very exciting year ahead of us. Make sure you check out our Future Events page to see which events we'll be attending this year. We hope to you at some, if not all.
Star Trek Discovery restarts the second half of Season One in a matter of hours on the 7th January (US and Canada) and 8th January everywhere else on Netflix.
At the end of 'Into the Forest I Go' we all saw Captain Lorca override the spore navigation drive. But where did he send them?
What did Lorca DO!? Since the second episode of Discovery we have been back and forth with where we stand on Lorca. These characters are deeper than the classic goodie/baddie archetypes so we are happy to indulge … Continue Reading ››
