Each week, Dan Davidson and Bill Smith will highlight various Star Trek topics covering The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and well as the new feature films and independently produced shows! In addition, they'll stump one another with trivia and have conversations with various contributors and celebrities throughout the Star Trek Universe.

Mar 8, 2016's a Dyson Sphere!

This week, the Trek Geeks take on an episode considered beloved by Star Trek fans all over the globe--"Relics," from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

The Starship Enterprise discovers a Federation ship that crashed on a Dyson sphere more than seventy-five years ago. On board, there's a single survivor suspended in the transporter buffer--none other than Captain Montgomery Scott.

Scotty became the third series regular from The Original Series to cross paths with the Next Generation crew and it was a welcome sight when this episode debuted in 1992.

Since that time, the Trek Geeks have taken a more critical view of this story. They'll talk about the things they liked, but they'll also examine the areas where they feel this episode did a disservice to the character of Montgomery Scott.

It's a potentially unpopular view on an incredibly popular story in this, the 50th episode of Trek Geeks!

PLUS--Mike Rittenhouse and Andy F ark from FIVE YEAR MISSION beam down with a very special announcement!
