Mission Log: A Roddenberry Star Trek Podcast

English, TV & Video, 1 season, 631 episodes, 17 hours, 31 minutes
About
Mission Log is a Roddenberry Entertainment podcast with the sole purpose of exploring the Star Trek universe one episode at a time. That’s right, this podcast will cover six different series and 30 seasons of television by journeying into every one of the 726 episodes with a single mission: to explore, debate and discuss one of the largest science fiction phenomena of all time, Star Trek. Starting with The Original Series’ initial pilot and continuing chronologically until we reach the last episode of Star Trek: Enterprise, each week our hosts, Ken Ray and John Champion, will tackle a single episode, delving into the most historical and hysterical science fiction that Star Trek has to offer. Along with a variety of guests and interviews, Mission Log will attempt to reach Star Trek’s ethical subtext, understand it’s complex metaphors and finally figure out what was the trouble with those tribbles. Explore strange new details. Seek out new perspectives; deeper understandings. Boldly go where so many of us love to go, again and again. Join us for Mission Log!

Our old friend William T. Riker stops by Deep Space Nine during leave, but he's not acting like himself. In fact, he's not himself - he's Thomas Riker, Will's transporter clone. Thomas is on a mission to steal the Defiant in the name of the Maquis and challenge the Cardassians in the demilitarized zone. Is the mission about policy though, or is it about ego?

203 - Hero Worship

A Federation starship has been destroyed, and it is all the fault of one little boy. At least the one little boy thinks so. His judgement should be questioned though, since he also thinks he is an android. Oh - and the Enterprise is about to be destroyed or something. Who can save the day?

201 - A Matter of Time

Professor Berlinghoff Rasmussen is a blast from the future. He is here to study his history in its natural habitat: back in time. He has picked a boring mission to study though. It is just a run of the mill "save 20-million people from disaster" cake walk. Yet the presence of Rasmussen makes the crew of the Enterprise think there is more going on than they know. History happens now when we put A Matter of Time in the Mission Log.   Your comments seem to have gone missing.
