Don’t call it a comeback. Because it isn’t. This week, ExVee, HeyMickey, Melllvarr, and Moloth return to take a special look at the very first episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. And if you can say one thing about “Encounter at Farpoint,” it’s that it certainly was the first episode of TNG. It’s a shame we didn’t brush up on some of the production background of the episode before recording, as that would really have shed some light on some of the issues we raised as we went through.
If this is your first episode of That One Episode of Star Trek, I’m sorry. But also, you might like to take a look at the rest of the series in the archives. TOEOST spent 100 episodes lovingly, or sometimes incredulously, deconstructing episodes from all the Star Trek series – including every single episode of Star Trek: The Animated Series! What an achievement! Anyway, if you want to hear more of our thoughts on Star Trek, you’ll have to listen to the old episodes, cause no way in hell I’m letting this happen again.
From the minds that brought you Superhero Time, the internet’s most offensive podcast about children’s TV shows, comes That One Episode of Star Trek. Because when tokusatsu is too offensively awful to waste time on, we can always rip Star Trek a new one.
