I decided to do a midweek cast since I haven’t done one in awhile. First a bit of Trek movie news. It seems Capt. Kirk is going to be part of the next movie as confirmed by JJ Abrams. It’s looking more likely this will be a young Kirk and Spock story. Maybe their first adventure together.
Then we get a nice book review by John McDuffy of the first Star Trek novel ever published, “Spock Must Die” by James Blish. This is a cool little novel that I still have on my shelf to this day! John has a neat web site called “Read More Sci-Fi.” Check it out at: www.readmorescifi.com Then it’s on to my look at the animated Trek episode.
The episode is called: “More Tribbles, More Troubles” and was written by David Gerrold who wrote the classic TOS episode “The Trouble with Tribbles.” This introduces a number of cool things into the Star Trek universe and features the return of Cyrano Jones. I especially liked the little glommer creature that the Klingons created to help them with their tribble problem. A fun little episode and I do a full commentary for it.
Lastly, the bit of the song I play at the end of this podcast is called: Chiron Beta Prime, by Jonathon Coulton. A great podcast friendly artist who is extremely talented. Check him out at: www.jonathoncoulton.com
Hope you enjoyed this little midweek show. Talk to you again over the weekend!
