#335 – Spotlight On: Star Trek – The Motion Picture

Finally, after long last, Empire or Jedi has returned to where it started…The Final Frontier. Yes, that’s right; a show that takes its name from a reference to Star Wars is finally getting around to doing something logical: discussing Star Trek. I am your host and recently promoted officer, Admiral David Snider, and joining me on the first of our ten movie mission is Lt. Commander Chad Griner and Ensign Nick Goathoof. Much like the Bond-Cast series, Ensign Goathoof is a newbie to the world of Star Trek, and as such, will go into these films completely clean and without any sort of bias whatsoever. What will Nick learn from the Trek-verse? Will he embrace the life of a Trekkie? Or will he give up all emotion like Chad and undergo Kolinahr training?

Topics of discussion in this episode include gratuitous spaceship porn; Nick takes issue with Spock’s poor grammar; and finally, we deem Chekov unfit for duty for reasons of wimpiness.
