Peter Allan Fields, who passed away on June 19, had a TV resume full of some of the best episodes Trek has ever produced, including The Next Generation's "The Inner Light" and DS9's "Duet" and "In the Pale Moonlight." This week, we look back on his career and one of his best/most underrated hours, "Blood Oath." If you like Klingons and Dax on a Seven Samurai mission of revenge, then this one's for you.


And to celebrate the recent 30th Anniversary of Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, we add another Red Shirt to our list from Shatner's infamous movie.

So pause your bat'leth training simulation and listen now to the newest TR3!

Star Trek III: The Search for Spock turned 35 this week, too -- and Wrath of Khan celebrated its 37th (!) anniversary. We feel just as old/young as Admiral Kirk did right now as we take a quick nostalgic look back at those major Trek milestones as well.


And we add three Red Shirts from Search for Spock that you've probably never seen before -- or forgot ever existed.

So grab a goblet of Martok's vintage blood wine, pull up a chair at Vic Fontaine's and listen now to the new TR3.
