Episode 96: Leonard Nimoy Hated Generations and Other Great Behind the Scenes Star Trek Facts

You guys have to get the new Star Trek book The Fifty-Year Mission: The Next 25 Years, which dives into all the behind-the-scenes drama of TNG (the series and movies), DS9, Voyager, Enterprise and the Abrams movies.

You also need to add the Star Trek 50th Anniversary 30-disc Blu-ray set to your collection posthaste for even more great making-of info. The 50th anniversary has been an embarrassment of nerd riches lately, and we're gonna walk you through two key pieces documenting Trek's half-century existence.


Did you know there was another writer brought on to First Contact at Patrick Stewart’s insistence? Or that Leonard Nimoy stopped talking to Rick Berman over Generations? Or that there was almost a Khan prequel after Star Trek II? We didn't either. Those are just a few great bits of trivia we picked up from the book and Blu-ray documentary. Listen to find out why there is life before and life after these must-have Trek historical documents.

We also announce the winners of our Star Trek: 50 Artists, 50 Years book giveaway and bid RIP to another Red Shirt all the way from Delta Quadrant.

There's a lot going on, so put on your Spock-y mediation robes, get comfy and listen now to TR3!
