From budget-crippling production woes to Shatner's "An Act of Love" (!) original story treatment, Phil and Scott discuss why Trek V's pain runs so deep (reference!) with the help of Sybok jokes and more trivia than you can shake a Nimbus III cat dancer lady at!

Plus, this week we field a listener e-mail that pulls a Warren Commission on the science of “All Good Things…" and bury another Original Series' Red Shirt of the Week from Season 3's "Wink of an Eye."

  1. Great show! happy to see ye back to the 1hr shows. This movie has always split into two havles for me. The small character scenes, row row your boat, die alone, their pain,etc.. I always found these to be and still do, very good scenes that still work to this day - something actually missing from some of the "next gen era " movies.
    Also, I have had the argument with a friend that V is much better as a trek movie than either of the New ones - I am relived to see that you both agree with me? At least V is trek, a pretty terrible one, but trek none the less.

  2. Thanks! Yes, there is a difference between real Trek and... whatever that is that they're making these days...
