Trekabout Patron Special 6: Federation by Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens
In July 2016, Trekabout discussed its first Star Trek novel, Federation, an accounting of the early days of warp travel. Spoiler alert: we liked it! iTunesGoogle PlayRSS
Trekabout Episode 294: Star Trek: Voyager, Extreme Risk/In the Flesh
B’Elanna deals with some psychological trauma in “Extreme Risk”, and we get a chance to visit San Francisco in “In the Flesh”. iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Episode 292: Star Trek: Voyager, One/Hope and Fear
In “One”, Seven and the Doctor have to run the ship all by themselves. In “Hope and Fear”, the crew discover that they are not alone. iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Episode 293: Star Trek: Voyager, Night/Drone
Welcome to the Brannon Braga era of Star Trek! We begin with “Night”, an interesting environmental allegory. Then we go into “Drone”, a retread of “I, Borg” that tries its best to differentiate itself but only sort of succeeds. iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Episode 128: Tapestry/Birthright, Part I
Star Trek: The Next Generation gives us our 34th Q episode this season, “Tapestry”, and Q is effectively and non-annoyingly used. Later, in “Birthright, Part I”, the show decides to make up for that by making Worf annoying. Also! Eric gives an impassioned plea for remastering Star Trek: Deep Space Nine in high definition. iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Episode 271: Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum
After a couple good episodes, Star Trek: Discovery sadly backslides with “Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum”. The show remembers that it has a metaplot to deal with, so we get yet another grab-bag serialization episode that feels scattershot and broad. Plus! What’s up with the stardates? iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Special 6: Listener Question Extravaganza!
Happy holidays, everyone! As a special year-end treat, we’re releasing December’s patrons-only episode to you all. We answer a bunch of questions sent in by listeners in this one, ranging from Star Trek to politics to the chances of either one of us ever having kids. Plus! See what you’re missing by not being a patron? Rectify that now by going to https://www.patreon.com/trekaboutshow and giving. iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Episode 277: Before and After/Real Life
Kes experiences her life backwards, in “Before and After”, and the Doctor attempts to live a life, in “Real Life”. Also! Richard doesn’t know if we are currently podcasting the third or fourth season of Star Trek: Voyager. iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Episode 275: Unity/Darkling
Star Trek: Voyager pays off the end of “Blood Fever” by showing us a colony of former Borg in “Unity”. Then, in “Darkling”, the show pays nothing off by giving us a terrible riff on Doctor Jekyll and Mister Hyde. iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Episode 287: Hunters/Prey
In “Hunters”, the Voyager crew waits for letters from home while dealing with the Hirogen, and in “Prey”, the Voyager crew looks for a member of Species 8472 while dealing with the Hirogen. iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Episode 110: Disaster/The Game
This week, we’ve replaced Star Trek: The Next Generation with The Poseidon Adventure and Invasion of the Body Snatchers. In “Disaster”, watch the crew of the Enterprise-D try to escape from a space tsunami! In “The Game”, watch Wesley Crusher and Ensign Lefler struggle to avoid being turned into brainwashed pod people! In Trekabout episode 110, listen to Eric Brasure and Richard Goodness talk about M’Ress from the Animated Series! Wait. What? iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Episode 115: Power Play/Ethics
Troi, Data, and O’Brien pretend to be the long-dead crew of a 22nd Century starship? No, we’re not talking about improv comedy night in Ten Forward, it’s “Power Play”. Worf gets injured by a falling barrel and must decide that life is worth living? No, we’re not talking about a Lifetime movie, it’s “Ethics”. iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Episode 233: Strange Bedfellows/The Changing Face of Evil
Lou Reed, we mean, the Breen and the Dominion reveal a surprise alliance in “Strange Bedfellows”. Then, in “The Changing Face of Evil”, Worf and Ezri decide not to continue their surprise alliance. iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Episode 229: Prodigal Daughter/The Emperor’s New Cloak
DS9 seems really invested in making Ezri a character, so they give us a dysfunctional family backstory in “Prodigal Daughter”. Then, we say goodbye to the Mirror Universe with “The Emperor’s New Cloak.” iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Episode 241: Eye of the Needle/Ex Post Facto
The Voyager crew stumbles across its best chance yet to get home, but all is not quite what it seems, in “Eye of the Needle”. Then, in “Ex Post Facto”, nothing about what happened to Paris is quite what it seems. Plus! Richard is a little disappointed by Tuvok. iTunes Google Play RSS
Tuning In Episode 34: The X-Files, Pilot/Deep Throat
Hey folks! Did you know that we have another podcast called Tuning In? Well, we do–and we’re starting The X-Files. If you enjoy it, subscribe over at http://tuninginshow.com and get subsequent episodes every Thursday! Yep, you read that right: Eric Brasure and Richard Goodness are doing The X-Files! Eric is a longtime fan, and Richard has only ever seen a handful of episodes. Hmm… that sounds familiar. Will Richard appreciate the show on its level? Will Eric be able to hold it together during mythology episodes? Is… the truth out there? If “Pilot” and “Deep Throat” are any indication, the answer may just be “yes”. So strap in and join us for our journey through The X-Files.  
Trekabout Episode 77: Time Squared/The Icarus Factor
If you ever wondered what would happen if the writing staff of TNG completely forgot the entirety of Picard’s characterization and made him into a milquetoast, you’re in luck, because “Time Squared” does that very thing. Later, the cast of Thirtysomething drops by for an episode, to help Riker deal with his daddy issues, in “The Icarus Factor”. iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Episode 78: Pen Pals/Q Who
It’s official: Richard Goodness gets really excited whenever “Written by Melinda D. Snodgrass” appears on his television. And “Pen Pals” is pretty good, what with all the interpersonal angst and Prime Directive drama. It’s not as good as “Q Who”, but that’s a tall order, so we’ll let it slide. Also! Richard thinks the Borg are underwhelming. iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Episode 85: The Enemy/The Price
After falling in love with a fake woman last week, Geordi finds himself on a hot and sweaty planet with a Romulan, trying to locate Wesley’s tower, in “The Enemy”. Later, in “The Price”, Troi finds herself the victim of a sexual predator–’80s TV drama writers. iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Episode 206: A Simple Investigation/Business as Usual
After the craziness of last week, it’s nice to see Star Trek: Deep Space Nine laying down two quiet character episodes. In “A Simple Investigation”, Odo finds himself drawn to a woman with a mysterious past. In “Business As Usual”, Quark crosses a line. Plus! The O’Briens’ have a baby. That’s all we have to say about that. iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Episode 204: For the Uniform/In Purgatory’s Shadow
“For the Uniform” features the kind of abrupt return of everyone’s favorite Maquis, Michael Eddington. “In Purgatory’s Shadow” features the kind of abrupt return of everyone’s favorite villain, The Dominion. Shit’s getting real, folks. iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Episode 199: Looking for par’Mach in All the Wrong Places/…Nor the Battle to the Strong
Have you been wondering what’s been up with Grilka, Quark’s Klingon ex-wife? Well, this is your moment, because she returns in another comedy of manners, in “Looking for par’Mach in All the Wrong Places”. Have you been wondering what’s up with Jake Sisko? Well, this is also your moment, because he has some growing up to do, in “…Nor the Battle to the Strong”. iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Episode 176: Past Tense, Part I/Past Tense, Part II
If you’re not a fan of us when we get political (or when Eric gets political and Richard sits there fidgeting uncomfortably), then you might want to skip this podcast on “Past Tense, Part I” and “Past Tense, Part II”.  Also! Capitalism is terrible. iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Episode 185: The Visitor/Hippocratic Oath
“The Visitor” is one of the most highly-regarded episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, but you might be surprised at what we think of it! Later, in “Hippocratic Oath”, Bashir and O’Brien are surprised at what they make of each other, and the Jem’Hadar. iTunes Google Play RSS
Trekabout Episode 178: Destiny/Prophet Motive
We deal with the aftermath of the Bajoran-Cardassian peace treaty in “Destiny”, as Kira starts making Sisko a little uncomfortable. Then, in “Prophet Motive”, Quark makes the Bajoran prophets uncomfortable. Plus! Richard doesn’t know who Tracy Scoggins is. iTunes Google Play RSS
