220. Jonathan Frakes Remembers ‘Cause and Effect’ at 30

Believe it or not, the classic Next Generation time-loop episode “Cause and Effect” just hit its 30th anniversary! And to celebrate, none other than Jonathan Frakes himself -- who directed the hour in addition to wearing his three pips very prominently throughout -- beams in to look back on the fan-favorite episode. We also do a quick Picard check-in, hit a reader mail, and of course mourn a ton of Red Shirts. So get all those threes out of your subconscious system, and listen now to TR3!

218. Star Trek 4: The Never-Ending Voyage

With Star Trek: Picard bringing back Q for the first time in 21 years, we revisit his last TV appearance: Star Trek: Voyager's "Q2." We also offer our two cents on the news that Chris Pine's Kirk and the crew of the Kelvin Timeline Enterprise are coming back (Hopefully? Maybe?) in Star Trek 4, while wishing the new Star Trek: Prodigy toys only cost two cents (zing). Another Replimat trip and Red Shirt (er, Yellow Shirt) are also in store, so don't. Provoke. The. Borg!
