Trek Geeks - A Star Trek Podcast is a casual discussion on Star Trek between two friends that have known each other for 20 years.

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.

This week, we return with a favorite topic among listeners of Trek Geeks: SEE-IT OR SKIP-IT!

This time we'll focus on the much-maligned second season of Star Trek: The Next Generation and decide whether that season deserves the reputation it has. Starting with "The Child" and progressing all the way through the infamous "Shades of Gray," we'll tell you which episodes you should definitely see, and which ones you might be OK to just avoid entirely.

We'll be joined by fellow podcaster and Camp Khitomer member Rick Tetrault from the Simply Syndicated network of podcasts! He'll be tasked with keeping us on track and keeping the peace as Bill and Dan go head-to-head on their episode picks. (Poor guy!)

Plus, news on the DS9 Documentary and we'll discuss the new DS9 DVD box set in Episode 93 of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast!


We love FIVE YEAR MISSION and we can't thank them enough for allowing us to use their music on Trek Geeks each and every episode. We're huge fans and we hope you'll become one, too--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 and check out each and every one of their incredible albums! You can hear them all: Year One, Year Two, Year Three, The Trouble with Tribbles, and of course, the amazing Spock's Brain!  Plus, don't forget that they are working on Year Four right now!

These are the Five Year Mission songs you'll hear in this episode of Trek Geeks!

The Trouble With Tribbles 6 – [Track 6] – The Trouble With Tribbles
