Mission Log: A Roddenberry Star Trek Podcast

Mission Log: A Roddenberry Star Trek Podcast

United States

Mission Log is a Roddenberry Entertainment podcast with the sole purpose of exploring the Star Trek universe one episode at a time. That’s right, this podcast will cover six different series and 30 seasons of television by journeying into every one of the 726 episodes with a single mission: to explore, debate and discuss one of the largest science fiction phenomena of all time, Star Trek. Starting with The Original Series’ initial pilot and continuing chronologically until we reach the last episode of Star Trek: Enterprise, each week our hosts, Ken Ray and John Champion, will tackle a single episode, delving into the most historical and hysterical science fiction that Star Trek has to offer. Along with a variety of guests and interviews, Mission Log will attempt to reach Star Trek’s ethical subtext, understand it’s complex metaphors and finally figure out what was the trouble with those tribbles. Explore strange new details. Seek out new perspectives; deeper understandings. Boldly go where so many of us love to go, again and again. Join us for Mission Log!

211 - The First Duty  

Wesley Crusher is a pilot on an elite team of flyers. Yeah. We are not sure when that happened either. Tragedy has hit the team though. A crash has led to the death of a member of Nova Squadron. They say it was an accident, and it probably was. Still, the members of the team know more than they are telling. It is up to Captain Picard and Groundskeeper Boothby to bring the truth to light. Or to get Wesley to do it. Find out what happened when we put The First Duty in the Mission Log.   Get in touch with us: On Facebook: facebook.com/missionlogpod On Twitter: @missionlogpod On Skype: missionlogpod On the phone: (323) 522-5641 Online: missionlogpodcast.com We may use your comments on a future episode of Mission Log.

208 - Ethics  

Is it better to die, or live a life that is less than one’s ideal? Is it better to follow the rules, or cut corners to potentially save lives?

205 - The Masterpiece Society  

The colonists on Moab IV live in perfect balance with their world. They have to - they were genetically bred to do so.

204 - Violations  

The Ullians who are visiting the Enterprise have a unique talent for helping people retrieve lost memories.

203 - Hero Worship  

A Federation starship has been destroyed, and it is all the fault of one little boy. At least the one little boy thinks so.

202 - New Ground  

The Enterprise is going on a surfing safari, following a test ship riding a soliton wave warp speed. Also, Alexander Rozhenko - son of son of Mogh - is back, and this time he is back to stay. Lying!

201 - A Matter of Time  

Professor Berlinghoff Rasmussen is a blast from the future. He is here to study his history in its natural habitat: back in time. He has picked a boring mission to study though. It is just a run of the mill "save 20-million people from disaster" cake walk. Yet the presence of Rasmussen makes the crew of the Enterprise think there is more going on than they know. History happens now when we put A Matter of Time in the Mission Log.   Your comments seem to have gone missing.

199 - The Game  

Wesley Crusher is back on the Enterprise, though there is very little time for him. Everyone is playing this great new game!
