This week, we continue with our wind down of the celebration Star Treks 50th anniversary with one of the very best episodes of them all - "The Doomsday Machine!" As you may recall from our last episode, this one ranks #4 in Bill's all time favorite TOS episodes, while Dan had it ranked as his 3rd favorite. Any way you slice it, it is a PHENOMENAL episode and we will discuss all aspects of this classic as well as discuss the amazing remastering of the episode by Mike and Denise Okuda. We will also talk about the incredible performance by William Windom as Commodore Matt Decker, and what makes this episode so special for both of us.
But that's not all! In addition to the discussion about the giant, planet killing cornucopia, we have a lot of news to cover, including some awesome casting announcements for Star Trek Discovery! Three incredible actors have been announced as we are so excited with who they are! Plus, we are feeling pretty old with the two Star Trek Anniversaries that occurred recently, and did you know that Star Trek Timelines is making it even harder for Dan to be productive at work? How, you ask? Well you will just have to tune in to find out!
We are incredibly grateful to FIVE YEAR MISSION for allowing us to use their music in our podcast each and every week. You really should check them out--they're writing and recording one original song for each episode of the classic Star Trek series from the 1960's.
Warp on over to their website at FiveYearMission.net and check out all of their fantastic albums! You can hear them all: Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, The Trouble with Tribbles, and of course, the amazing Spock's Brain! Plus, here is a little secret...they are working on Year 4 right now!
Plus, we absolutely want to see them back as the House Band for this year's Star Trek convention in Las Vegas! Don't forget to let Creation Entertainment know you'd like to see them, too! Tweet them, Facebook them, email them...and be sure to use the hashtag #5YMSTLV2017!
Here’s a rundown of the Five Year Mission songs you'll hear in this episode!
