This is a very special 400th episode of Priority One, so things are going to be a little different.

We’re skipping Trek It Out this week to make way for all the other AWESOME content that we have to share. To celebrate our 400th, we spent the day at Cryptic Studios in Los Gatos, California, talking to the development team behind Star Trek Online. We’ve got some great interviews with content designers, artists and producers, including an EXCLUSIVE announcement about new content you’ll be seeing in game soon. We also sat down with GamePrint, the company that lets you 3D print your own ship from Star Trek Online.

But first, we’re tackling the latest episode of Star Trek: Discovery in our On Screen segment. We’ll be exploring life and death in “An Obol for Charon”.

    Wonderful show, love the interviews. Congo Rats on 400!

    As for ship size, i started hating the size creep when the breen rezreth became available.

    In the lightning round, tfo with people who leave, Al is only partially correct, yes you cant fail, but you can have ones that cease to progress, i have had this done with the gamma space one, where the next wave doesnt come. You have to leave and take the penalty at that point.

    Congratulations P1 ! Long time listener, one time caller, and still following you. Eight years already ? My, those temporal shenanigans fly by.
    You guys still produce excellent content, especially the interviews with the devs. The Discovery reviews are enjoyable (what really annoyed me in An Obol however was ‘degrees Kelvin’…)

    There are not many podcasts that survive more than 4-5 years and that you are still around is a testament to your dedication and efforts and love for the overall Star Trek universe.

    I Vulcan salute you.
