Hello O-Deck! I know i haven’t been active miuch around these parts but I’m hoping to change that up. I plan to be a bigger contributor this year, starting with this little topic I thought of during a recent rewatch on TNG S3.
I know some ODeckers are already under siege from snow, but the jury is still out on whether we will get a White Christmas in Snowdonia. A light dusting up top, perhaps? Or is that just dandruff?
There is a seasonal tradition in the UK and Commonwealth countries that seems truly alien according to some ODeckers. But if you can’t unshackle those puritan misconceptions and laugh a little at this time of year, then there’s no hope for the world. Nothing is so guaranteed to bond friends and family as the crass…
We need an Open Thread around these parts. Since this is Election Day, i figured it would be fun to see we in the USA compare in government to other races from our favorite sci-fi shows and films. Of course since this is an Open Thread, discuss whatever else you want.
As you may have figured out by the fact that last week’s recap hasn’t even been posted yet, there has been a delay. That stupid pesky thing called “life.” Sigh.
This week the Enterprise encounters an interstellar trader with some most unusual cargo:
Former Editor of the Sunday Times and Daily Politics host Andrew Neil didn’t know it was Star Trek’s 50th Anniversary until SNP Members of Parliament tabled an Early Day Motion applauding the success of the show and those involved. Could it be because the Engineer is called Scotty?
Is there something in the water? Not content with setting a Trekkie-cosplay record last Friday, Birmingham - or Burmygam as extra-terrestrial visitor Skizz styled it - wants your sci-fi cats for a show of paws on October 22.
This week, a transporter accident creates a duplicate of our good captain. But the duplicate is... well... not so good, as Captain Kirk must face...
This week a strange infection causes the crew some trouble. Everyone get your best Dana Carvey impressions ready, because on board the Enterprise, it’s...
In this week’s episode, the Enterprise makes a strange discovery about the nature of Man itself as we prepare to journey...
In this week’s episode, the Enterprise takes on a young passenger who may be more than he seems. Let’s see what happens when Kirk faces off against...
So I’m still on my sabbatical from the ODeck for health and moving reasons, but it’s just too weird not to write about this at the moment.
It is important to me to try and maintain consistency. And we’re only one week into this thing, so I’m hardly established at it yet! Alas, I had a bit of a familial emergency erupt tonight, and so there is a chance that this week’s installment of the Star Trek recap may be delayed.
Long before the Kelvin timeline tormented true-blue Trekkies, South East London was introduced to a parallel universe of bold voyages where no man had gone before. The Churchill Theatre in Bromley, Kent raised the curtain on Star Trek: The Lost Voyage of the Enterprise for a limited time in November 1994.
On the 50th anniversary of the most influential space adventure tv show BBC Radio 4 asks the hard-hitting questions, namely can you tell the most emotionally repressed first officer apart from everyone’s favourite rockstar astrophysicist?
It’s not Star Trek week without plundering the depths of youtube for your favorite Star Trek themed songs and bands. Here are just a couple to get you started:
Hey, everybody! You catch that new show that premiered tonight called Star Trek? In tonight’s episode, we meet the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise during what should be a routine medical stop. Routine, that is, until crewmen start showing up dead. Tonight’s episode:
We know Bill and Leonard like a sing-a-long, though neither can hold a candle to Nichelle. But what do you suppose Kirk did with the Enterprise Karaoke machine that caused Spock to react with such alarm? Or did an impromptu turn of Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds drown out the noise of approaching Klingons? Can Uhura…
