Greetings, Admirals! You’re listening to EPISODE 232 OF PRIORITY ONE PODCAST, the premier Star Trek Online podcast! This episode was recorded on Thursday, July 23rd, 2015 and made available for download or streaming on Monday, July 27th, 2015 at PriorityOnePodcast.com!
Our special guests this week are executive producer Alec Peters and director Rob Burnett from Star Trek: Axanar. We’re catching up with them as they move into their latest phase of fundraising, talking about how the project is progressing and where the money is going. We also digress a bit and end up talking Star Trek canon and San Diego Comic-Con, one year on from the debut of “Prelude to Axanar”.
In Star Trek Online news, we’re reviewing the new featured episode “Broken Circle”, Jayce is taking a more in-depth look at the new Tier 6 Resolute, and Kenna is talking duty officers. And as always, before we wrap things up, we’ll open Hailing Frequencies for your incoming messages.
What doff ability would you love to see, whether a return of a hard-to-find past Duty Officer or a whole new one you can’t believe they’ve never implemented?
