This week we’re Trekking Out some #TrekNuggets from Destination Star Trek in Birmingham, England, and a couple new starships from the folks at Eaglemoss. And for you Worf fans out there, it seems that Michael Dorn wants in on new Star Trek, too.

In Star Trek gaming news, we’re joined by Star Trek Online’s Lead Designer, Al “Captain Geko” Rivera, to talk about Age of Discovery and more!

And as always, before we wrap up the show, we’ll open hailing frequencies for your incoming messages!

  • What Star Trek actor would you like to see cameo in the new Picard series?
  • What are your thoughts on the new animated series? Love it? Hate it? Cautiously optimistic?

    Hey guys, Great ep but i am not going to lie that i am very disappointed that conventions Boffs will not be added to the game at some point. The game is online and its world wide so having rewards that are only for people in the USA is kinda sucky. You they want to keep it to conventions only I then say to be fair they have to come to every con in the world for trek… I am here in Australia and they will never come out here, and even if they do Australia is so big its impossible for alot of people to make it to a Trek con as fun fact we dont have one every year. What i would like to see is something that Star wars did giving people the code and that they can give 3 to there friends to use, and they can give it to 3 of there friends etc.

    Everyone likes to have special things but having BOFF’s from the show is a trekkys dream and should be limited as much as it is. Can not tell you how disappointed i was that I can not get a Kira, Garak or Bashir as I can never get out there to STLV.

    Let me be the first on P1 to poo poo the random tfo, there are reasons i haven’t played some of them if i did not have to, there are a few i HATE. Mostly it boils down to time vs rewards, breach takes way too long for what you get, same with azure. I do like the new non shuttle Vault, never played it before. I also hate Terok Nor, that one section is just horrid, that one section makes it take way too long for the rewards.That said, i do love the demolition of the replay timers going away both tfo and missions.

    Wonderful show everyone, and thanks to Al for another fun and informative visit.

    Wow, that “Emmett Till” ship looks cool, kinda like a mix between a Chimera-class from STO, and perhaps the Discovery? I’d love to see that ship show up in-game. As far as more Eaglemoss ships, I dunno; now with the custom Gameprint ships, despite how much more expensive they are, I’d say that their ability to make almost every ship in STO kind of eliminates any pressing need for Eaglemoss to add more ships from the game into their lineup. Maybe some of the more popular ones for the masses, though TBH besides the Enterprise-F I’m not sure what those ones would be. (And IMHO the Eaglemoss Enterprise-F got all the colors wrong. 🙁 ) Eaglemoss could probably do more concept art/alternative design takes from Trek shows/series, like they did with the original Probert concept for the Enterprise-C.

    Which Trek actors do I want to cameo in the new Picard show? ANY AND ALL OF THEM. 🙂 I imagine that Picard and Crusher are married with kids by this point in the timeline, and they go to brunch on the weekends with Admiral Riker and Troi. LaForge comes around to show them Starfleet’s new kickass ship designs. Worf is an ambassador, and Picard is one too, so they probably work together a lot. Data’s a tricky one, what with the whole ‘dying’ thing, but the STO timeline has him ‘resurrecting’ inside B4’s brain, so that’s an option for the show if they wanted to bring him back. Heck, let’s put Wesley in there, along with some folks from the other Trek shows, like Captain Dax or The Doctor or Shran’s great-great-great-great-grandson that looks and sounds exactly like him. BRING BACK ALL THE PEEPS PLEEEASE!

    You know, now that the idea exists, I can’t believe that an “Adult Swim”-sort of Trek cartoon series HASN’T been made before now. 🙂 (AFAIK The Animated Series was widely regarded more as a kid’s cartoon, despite the objections from Roddenberry himself.) If it’s anything like a Venture Bros/Sealab 2021/etc. style of humor, that’s sounds like it’d be right up my alley.
