Subscription Box1Greetings, Captains! You’re listening to EPISODE 276 OF PRIORITY ONE PODCAST, your weekly report on all things Star Trek! Available for download or streaming on Monday, June 27th, 2016 at!

This week we trek out the new guidelines issued by CBS for fan films, and Bryan Fuller reveals just how far production on the new Trek series has progressed. In Star Trek Online news, Mark and I are taking a trip to the JJVerse – yes, the JJVerse! – and looking at whether you’ll want to shell out for the latest ships. Later, our science advisor Dr Hurt is here with the latest report from the Astrometrics Lab.

As usual, before we wrap up the show, we’ll open hailing frequencies for your incoming messages.


This week’s Community Questions:

    Question 1. Don’t care much about it. But if you do, contact CBS and Paramount and tell them to change them. Complaining on a podcast won’t change anything, I doubt they even listen.

    Q2. It’s fine by me, it’s not a game changer, just another timeline, we have seen plenty of those in Trek.

    You know, I’m really surprised that you guys haven’t reached out to anyone in the community who is trying to hype up this expansion. While there isn’t many, Loot Critter has been doing a lot with a couple of guest bloggers, and ZEFilms has been doing crazy, crazy stuff with the ships before they’re even released.

    This might be something that your fan base may want to hear. Just a suggestion, from someone who listens.

    *insert insult* CBS/Paramount

    As for the jjverse (not yet ready to help with the media spin) in sto, meh.

    The news on the gravitational waves was really cool to hear.

    Wonderful show everyone.

    Q1: A good story will always prevail, but I think that the first clause (the one limiting episode length and limiting serialization to two episodes) will be the biggest challenge. It seems to me that the stories will be rather superficial if you cannot have characters or starships/locales/environments exist for more than 30 minutes. Just try to make a good Foundry mission with this limitation!

    Q2: Once again: A good story will always prevail, and the stuff Cryptic has been releasing recently has been awesome! I cannot wait to check this out.

    Q1: I’m not exactly sure what will happen to fan creations of Star Trek productions. I would imagine that the production community will have to come together as a collective (no-pun intended) and come up with some creative way to string together a series (of unrelated) episodes. Time will tell.

    Q2: Frankly, I’m super excited about the Kelvin timeline being brought into STO. And, as a matter of fact, my main toon’s name is Robau (the captain of the USS Kelvin) and my Ship is the Kelvin III. So, I’ve been waiting for this day for quite a while! I can’t wait!

    I agree with Winters: 13 episodes sucks. Other shows I watch do more. Supernatural’s most recent seasons had 23, Grimm had 22. I hear the argument about quality over quantity, but I enjoyed all the previous Trek series, they pulled off the balance and I trust the producers to be capable of finding that balance again. 13 is not enough.

    Q1. I don’t really follow fan productions. I hope it doesn’t stiffle them, and I hope Axanar finds a way to settle with CBS/Paramount so they can finish their movie the way they intended it.

    Q2. I consider the Kelvin timeline to already be in STO because of the Hobus explosion. We haven’t been able to visit it, but to me this is a non event since I always thought it was in.

    On the sounds for gravity waves, there was a great TED Talk by a blind astronomer recently where she shows off technology to make supernovas audible and talks about doing astronomy without vision. I found it totally in the spirit of Star Trek:

    Thanks for the show!
