G & T Show 277 – Dirty Sci Fi
So the G & T Show 277 – Dirty Sci Fi – Star Trek is available for your listening pleasure here.
Better late than never!
So, this episode kind of got lost in the weeds during various vacations and whatnot. Because it’s the whatnot you have got to watch out for.
As might be obvious, the big excitement centers around the upcoming television series. Since Star Trek Discovery looks really neat and different, the gang are getting psyched. And of course, some folks want more of a nostalgic look back. But hey, that’s fine!
Because Star Trek is a big tent. And we can all fit under it! Peace, harmony, and sehlats!
Link a Palooza!
As always, there were a ton of interesting links. Yet you may want to take a look at some of our more recently-added links as those are going to be more up to date.
First of all, All the Star Trek captains boldly go onto postage stamps. Except if you love Star Trek, you’re gonna be annoyed not living in Canada. Speaking of Canada, a Star Trek-Inspired License Plate was Revoked, Deemed Offensive.
In addition, outside of Canada (!), Star Trek legend to race at Silverstone. Also, Star Trek Icon William Shatner to Take Zero-G Flight in August. And continuing in the TOS vein, Takei Returns to the NYC Stage in Pacific Overtures. Finally, Watch: Picardo & Planetary Society Join the March for Science.
Also, as might be expected, Discovery dominated the news.
First of all, Star Trek: Discovery cast adds Shazad Latif, Rekha Sharma, Kenneth Mitchell, Clare McConnell and Damon Runyan. And there was good news for Star Trek: Discovery, no writers strike! Furthermore, New Star Trek: Discovery Cast Members Hint At Tricky Diplomacy With The Klingon High Council.

In addition, keep track of it all with the Star Trek The Next Generation Enterprise Journal (check all of these for availability). There was also the Star Trek Klingon 22oz. Mug. In addition, aren’t these Star Trek Uniforms & Equipment Pint Glasses [set of 2] neat?
Plus we liked the Star Trek Red Squadron T-Shirt. And the Star Trek Starfleet Academy Property of 16 oz Stein looks fun. Finally, there’s also Star Trek Klingon Monopoly – it’s Exclusive.
Now, while some of this is kind of older news, you can always click through and check out the updates.
