Actually, not Herbert. Because we did things in style for this special episode, starting with a visit from our friend and Star Trek guru Jordan Hoffman. Renowned throughout the quadrant for his Trek knowledge -- but mostly his ability to sling puns -- Jordan regales us with tales from the Trek convention circuit and that time he heckled J.J. Abrams…

But our main focus this week is a discussion of how Star Trek could, should and might return to TV. Which cast would feature in a new show? Would it be the Abramsverse or the old continuity? Is Trek’s best chance at being reborn on TV to actually bypass traditional broadcast and cable and go the Netflix route? We dive deep on this one!
And of course we have a Red Shirt of the Week, and a very unconventional one at that for this doomed crewman somehow lived again. Plus, we have a very special giveaway for our listeners: a chance to win the NX-2000 Excelsior from Star Trek III: The Search for Spock from Diamond Select Toys. This 18-inch long piece features button-activated lights and all-new sound effects and dialogue taken from the film, including lines by the ship's douchey Captain Styles!
