Each Friday after a new episode of Star Trek, Adam and Ben recap, review and roast all the New Trek. Check out our other show, The Greatest Generation, a Star Trek podcast by a couple of guys who are a little bit embarrassed to have a Star Trek podcast!

A Thousand Things At Once (Patrick Stewart on Bullseye)
When Jesse Thorn joins Ben and Adam to relive a conversation with P-Stew, the intro runs almost as long as the interview itself. But when foundational SNL sketches differ, the resulting questions go from glib to sincere and Jesse offers up remote pod viewing directly into his adolescence. If NPR is Godzilla, what is PRI? Where do public radio and Star Trek align? What’s the weirdest thing about having lunch with Jesse? It’s the episode that fantasizes about a very elderly man’s workout routine.Friends of DeSoto for LaborSupport the production of Greatest TrekMusic by Adam RaguseaFollow Greatest Trek on Twitter, and discuss the show using the hashtag #GreatestTrek!Greatest Trek on YouTube | Facebook group | Subreddit | Discord | WikiSign up for our mailing list!Get a thing at podshop.biz!

Weaving the Blanket as We're Flying It (with Adam Ragusea)
When Ben and Adam need to Q their A’s, Adam Ragusea stops by the pod to lend a hand. But when the trio wants Bonita Applebum and instead they get Apples and Bananas, it looks like things may be off to a rocky start. Where has Kevin been hiding all these years? Is it crenellation or castellation? Does Instacart deliver to the D quad? It’s the episode that asks “What did you think of that?”You can also watch the video version of this episode: https://youtu.be/E95tg4XyG8gFriends of DeSoto for LaborSupport the production of Greatest TrekMusic by Adam RaguseaFollow Greatest Trek on Twitter, and discuss the show using the hashtag #GreatestTrek!Greatest Trek on YouTube | Facebook group | Subreddit | Discord | WikiSign up for our mailing list!Get a thing at podshop.biz!

The New Yorker But With Fart Jokes and Dongers (What We Left Behind)
When Ben and Adam got to see an early preview of the DS9 retrospective in 2019, they sat down to record a bonus episode about everything it brought to light. But with Voyager’s own documentary on the way soon, how will it compare without a Shat or an Ira to center himself in the story. Who was responsible for a prison experiment at the live screening? Why is this production so kind to Rick Berman? What type of director wouldn’t have used Meredith Brooks? It’s the episode that feels a lot like a Star Trek convention in a box.Friends of DeSoto for LaborSupport the production of Greatest TrekMusic by Adam RaguseaFollow Greatest Trek on Twitter, and discuss the show using the hashtag #GreatestTrek!Greatest Trek on YouTube | Facebook group | Subreddit | Discord | WikiSign up for our mailing list!Get a thing at podshop.biz!

A Costco Han Solo (with Aaron Waltke)
When a very important Star Trek person wanders into Ben’s cargo bay, he leaves the handmade gun at home to avoid another encounter with security. But with a 50% hit rate on the backstage rider, “Bowmore 15 or similar” results in something “perfectly drinkable”. How did Waltke Senior inform Rok-Tahk’s mouth? Is Kevin Uxbridge being discussed inside of Big Rodd’s pocket? Does Nickelodeon slime have a shelf life? It’s the episode that’s made for specialized collectors of Star Trek V memorabilia!Friends of DeSoto for LaborSupport the production of Greatest TrekMusic by Adam RaguseaFollow Greatest Trek on Twitter, and discuss the show using the hashtag #GreatestTrek!Greatest Trek on YouTube | Facebook group | Subreddit | Discord | WikiSign up for our mailing list!Get a thing at podshop.biz!

If You’re Going to Ralph’s You’ve Made Your Choices (Heat)
When a really good crew takes a redshirt on an away mission, he turns out to be more of a cowboy than they expected. But when they agree to a really big score, they might meet their match with a crew playing for the other team. What's the URL for Craig's List but for heists? What do you call guys that aren't Wayne Knight, but kind of are? Is the Sizemore Special a smart thing to order for breakfast on the morning of a heist? Everybody knows that Heat isn't a holiday movie.
