Today Jeff is joined by fellow integral nerds Cindy Wigglesworth and Corey deVos in this integral appreciation of the venerable Star Trek franchise. Open hailing frequencies, set phasers to stun, and prepare to boldly go where no Star Trek review has gone before.


When this episode came out, I loved it, but in the last couple months I’ve been feeling something very deep - like depth psychology deep - is going on with Trek now. I knew that the Trump era was the time and the challenge that Star Wars was made for, but there is something about Trek that I keep coming back to.

I know that at least part of it is the constant bungling of everything by every Federation crew ever featured, but I can’t shake the feeling lately that Trek holds some wisdom that’s not yet fully revealed itself. What a time for myths, though, right?
