A weekly podcast in which Scott McNulty discusses a randomly selected episode of “Star Trek” — all series, all seasons — with a non-random guest.


“Equinox Part 1 and Part 2” (VOY) with Jason Snell


Jason Snell, the head honcho of the Incomparable and Six Colors, joins Scott to discuss Voyager’s two parter “Equinox” (Part 1, Part 2) (S5E26, S6E1). Topics include Voyager’s super clean carpets, the proper amount of Harry Kim, and Starfleet’s stunning lack of security (again!).

“Quality of Life” (TNG) with Anna Marquardt


Anna Marquardt, one of the people behind the blog “Fashion it So”, joins Scott to discuss TNG’s “The Quality of Life”. Cute robots! But are they alive? No, they aren’t alive… but they might be sentient! Plus particle fountains, Capt. Picard judging things he knows nothing about, and a lack of interesting costumes.

“That Which Survives” (TOS) with Geraldine DeRuiter


Geraldine DeRuiter, writer, joins Scott to discuss TOS’s “That Which Survives” (TOS S3E14). Topics include how chill everyone is about mysterious appearing women, how rude Spock and Kirk are to everyone, navel covering costume panels, and the troubling thing that Capt. Kirk thinks survives.

“The Loss” (TNG) with Lisa Schmeiser


Lisa Schmeiser, podcaster, columnist, and editor, joins Scott to discuss TNG’s “The Loss” (TNG S4E10). Topics include how dreamy Capt. Picard is, why Deanna thinks so poorly of her own abilities (we blame the writers), and we pitch our new show, “Star Trek: HR.” CBS, you can just send us a ton of money right now.

Moisés Chiullán, writer and podcaster, joins Scott to discuss DS9’s “Favor The Bold” (S6E5). Topics include Scott not realizing this episode is the first half of a two parter (though it does stand alone), Dukat’s management style, and Odo’s stamina.

“Demon” (VOY) with Anže Tomić


Anže Tomić, podcaster, radio show host, and writer, joins Scott to discuss Voyager’s “Demon” (VOY S4E24) which Scott thinks should have been called “Silver Blood.” Topics include volunteering your DNA, sleepytime Neelix, and a more confident Harry Kim.

“The Thaw” (VOY) with Seth Heasley


Seth Heasley, host of The Hugos There podcast, joins Scott to discuss Voyager’s “The Thaw” (VOY S2E23). Harry Kim isn’t the only clown on this episode. Topics include questioning the central premise of this episode (we recommend not doing this, the episode is better without too much thought), Voyager’s poor sound dampening, and the things that scare us all.

“Star Trek: The Motion Picture” with Moisés Chiullán, David J. Loehr, and Jean MacDonald


38 years ago today the Human Adventure began with Star Trek: The Motion Picture, and it continues. Topics include those uniforms and if you can hide a phaser in them, the wonderful score, and if this movie has a plot. Also, this podcast features several long sequences of the participants staring off into the distance.

“Affliction” and “Divergence” (ENT) with David J. Loehr


David J. Loehr, writer and compulsive Incomparable podcaster, joins Scott to discuss a rare ENT two-parter: “Affliction” (S4E15) and “Divergence” (S4E16). Topics include why did this need to be two episodes, the ever changing look of Klingons, and the debate over which Enterprise character is least memorable (is it that one guy with the accent? Or the other dude who is a pilot or something?).
