Podcast # 647 – Discovery Ships & More – 1708.20

This week our resident ship expert Jedi Jeff is back with a brand new ship show.  This time Jeff talks about the cool, new ships from “Star Trek: Discovery.”  Get the lowdown before the show starts next month.  He also talks a bit about a “Voyager” ship and some on his Megablocks Trek sets.  Join Jeff for a cool discussion on Trek ships and I thank him once again for guesting on the podcast.

I will be back next week with a rundown on the summer movies I saw and my overall take on them.  Until then take care and enjoy your week!


Podcast # 646 – “The Darkness and the Light” – 1708.13

This week it’s a classic style podcast with a Trek episode and a collectible review.  I start off talking about some recent movies and TV I have been watching – like the very good “Atomic Blonde” movie and also a little on “The Dark Tower” movie too.  I cover some of the TV watching I’m doing like “Game of Thrones” and then it’s on to the Trek episode.

This week I cover a fifth season DS9 episode called “The Darkness and the Light.”  This is a Kira focused episode mainly about someone from her past killing off friends of her that were in the resistance together.  It’s an interesting story and told well.  It touches on what one sometimes does in war times and the consequences of the actions you might take during that time.  I like this one a lot.

I finish up the podcast giving a brief review of a recent collectible review.  It’s the Hasbro made Thor hammer collectible in the Marvel Legends line.  It’s a cool prop and has some special features too.  I’m slowly getting several cool Avenger type props to add to my collection.  You can find this HERE on Amazon if you are interested.

Feel free to donate to the podcast via Patreon HERE and next week there will be a guest podcast with Jedi Jeff covering ships once again.  I’ll be back in two weeks and until then take care and enjoy the summer weather!

Podcast # 645 – “A Final Unity” – 1708.06

This week I have a special guest show for everyone.  It’s by my good friend Joe Mastroianni of the Upper Memory Block Podcast (or UMB Cast).  A few months ago he covered one of the best “Star Trek” games ever made.  The classic TNG game, “A Final Unity.”  I played this game back in the day and really enjoyed it.  Joe first released this show to celebrate his 100th UMB Cast.  Congrats on that and if you like this podcast make sure to go subscribe to Joe’s show and check him out on Patreon too right HERE.  Thanks Joe for the guest spot to use on TSF.

Next week I will be back with a look at the 5th season DS9 episode called, “The Darkness and the Light.”  You can support the TSF Podcast HERE on Patreon too.  Until next time take and enjoy your week.

STC: “What Ships Are For”

Great, new episode of this excellent “Star Trek” web series.  This has been a real treat to see what a great job they have been doing with this series and the fact that the quality and stories are both hig calibur and fit so well into the frame of what “Star Trek” is all about.  Enjoy this latest episode folks and drop by their Facebook group HERE and drop them a line on how much you like it.

Podcast # 644 – “Star Trek: The Animated Series” – 1707.30

This week I’m back doing a podcast after being gone for a few weeks.  I talk about the new “Valerian” film, all the stuff that we saw at San Diego Comic Con online last weekend, and the main topic talking about the Animated Trek series.  I cover some recent other films I’ve seen and give my comments on the trailers, the “Star Trek: Discovery” news and other things we learned from last weekend’s Comic Con.  Then it’s on to the main topic.

The animated Trek series holds a special place for me as it was really the first “new” Trek I saw back in the day when it was airing after watching TOS reruns for a few years.  This was the first taste of new Trek and it had just about all the talent, actors, writers, and so on that the original series had going for it.  There are some real gems in the short 22 episode, two season run.  I give some background and talk about some of the behind the scenes stuff along with playing some audio clips too.  I hope you enjoy this look back at this important piece of Trek history.

That’s about it for this week.  Next week there will be a guest cast for you and until next time take care and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 643 – “Krull” – 1707.23

Resting up from my week in Germany so this week guest host Mark covers one of my favorite 80’s fantasy films.  That is “Krull” from 1983.  I’ve talked about this movie a few times and Mark gives us his thoughts and plays some clips and music from this classic film.  Here are some words from Mark on this week’s show.

Hello Everybody!
This is Mark Daniels from the Great Pacific Northwest.  I’m back this week with a classic science fantasy movie.  It’s the cult classic “Krull” from 1983!  It stars Ken Marshall, Lysette Anthony, David Battley and Freddie Jones.  If you liked Excalibur and Star Wars, you are going to love this movie.  It’s one of my guilty pleasures.  I hope you all enjoy it!
Thank you Rico for letting me cover this classic science fantasy movie!
I’ll be back soon with another classic science fiction movie.
Until then, Everyone take care…
This is M-5 signing off…
Big thanks to Mark for covering this one.  I’ll be back next weekend with a look at the “Star Trek” animated series and my thoughts on all the cool stuff we are seeing from San Diego Comic Con this weekend.  Enjoy your week.
