G & T Show 157 – Trek Shows We’d Like To See
G & T Show 157 – Trek Shows We’d Like To See is now available for downloading. Check it out here. Nick, Terry, and Mike are back with a new show. After an abbreviated Coffee Clatch, Nick jumps straight into this weekend’s coverage of Baltimore Comic Con. We follow it up with Star Trek News and a lively discussion of Star Trek Television Parodies before lighting the fuse on an explosive discussion of the recent Star Trek Online News.
We start the show with some bad news. Twisted Mike, a member of Caspian Division passed away yesterday. After sending our condolences to his family and friends, the discussion moves to television and gaming experiences of yesteryear. Nick kicks us off with Convention Coverage of the Baltimore Comic Con and all of the great cosplay and vendor room he encountered at the convention.
Moving onto Star Trek News, we discuss Humble Bundle from IDW which features sixty-six issues of Star Trek comics for only fifteen bucks and supports the Hero Initiative. It’s only for a limited time. Next we talk about Nichelle Nichols will be appearing at the Great Allentown Comic Con. Up next is the Mexican Star Trek-themed wedding. The article from 1701 News regarding Star Trek’s next series may appear on Showtime rather than Netflix. It sparks a heated discussion that leads us into a lively discussion of Star Trek parody television series we would love to see, including our own Klingons of Long Island. We end up speculating what the next Star Trek show will be like and our best guess, based on the success of Guardians of Galaxy would be something akin to Star Trek: Renegades. Then, we talk about Zoe Saldana and her status as a female action hero.
Nick moves the show into STO News by telling us about the new ship one of his characters, Dav Mak, is now flying in game. The ship is named after a character in Star Trek: Vanguard, Ming Xiong. Mike admits that he has played the first level of the upcoming expansion on Twitter and raves about the look of Voyager and how true it is to what we saw on the screen. We talk about the upcoming tier six ships and it sparks a heated discussion about the design of the new ship. Mike and Nick don’t like the design of one of the new Federation ships, while Terry loves it. Mike references the photos of the ships in the Delta Rising: Operations Pack and dislikes the nacelles and the lack of Bussard Collectors on the front of the Eclipse Intel Cruiser.
There was no Ask Dayton this week, since he’s hard at work on his next novel and his book signing. Ask Dayton will return soon. They move on to announcements. They remind everyone to check out our recent Supplemental Log featuring Jen Usellis. Finally, we send our thanks to everyone at Baltimore Comic Con.

But, wait. There’s more.
He is the co-owner of Busy Little Beaver Productions and is the producer and co-host for G & T Show and Gates of Sto’vo’kor. He’s directed voice actors, and produced and edited audio podcasts and dramas because he doesn’t have the face for video. He plays well with others and is always on the look out for the next project, the next thing, the next next. If he wasn’t working on something with a half dozen other projects waiting in the wings, somebody please check to make sure he’s still breathing.
During the day, he’s a mild-mannered computer repair man who dabbles in web design in his small, rural, Central California community. He lives with his lovingly dysfunctional family and loyal canine companion and spends most of his time in the closet concocting some hair-brained scheme or another. He’s got an unhealthy obsession with Lego video games, Klingons, and Star Trek Online that borders on the neurotic.
Despite all this, he still finds the time to write the words. Find out what he's doing here.
