This time out, we talk to writer, legend and OG of TOS D.C. Fontana about her time on the classic show as well as her stint helping to launch The Next Generation, including co-writing the pilot of that series, “Encounter at Farpoint.” [tugs on shirt, orders Earl Grey tea, hot]

And then we also delve into a discussion of Fontana’s great first-season episode, “This Side of Paradise.” You know the one -- everyone on the Enterprise gets doused with alien plant spores, quits their jobs, and puts on those really bland overalls. Oh, and Spock falls in love…
And of course, we finish out the podcast with another Red Shirt. Actually, several, but you’ll have to listen to find out who/what/how. So sit back, ask Sandoval if he’d like to see how fast you can put him in a hospital, and listen to Transporter Room 3!
