To paraphrase another well-known sci-fi franchise, there's a disturbance in the Federation. Yes, this week, we're going there...an all out discussion of those little things that annoy us about Trek! BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE...it's all in love! Although we analyze our favorite nitpicks, it doesn't deter our fandom! So listen in and see if you agree, disagree, or better yet if you can explain our nitpicks! Let us know if you share a nitpick or if you have one we didn't mention.

Due to busy schedules and focusing on a certain Amazon demi-goddess that opened this past weekend means the Red Shirts were furloughed this week, but here's a rebroadcast of the Red Shirts where we discuss the problems with bringing the beloved TNG cast from the small screen to the big screen. But look for the Red Shirts to return with more Discovery news very soon!

The crew of the U.S.S. Internet discuss the casting of Jason Isaacs as the new captain of the Discovery. Would it have been better to see another female captain or a captain of color? Will it go down well having an African-American female play second fiddle to Isaacs? Will the SJWs lose their minds if the captain dresses down the 1st officer? The Red Shirts boldly GO THERE!

A special guest beams aboard the U.S.S. Internet this week! Daryll B. of Afronerd Radio joins the Red Shirt crew! Daryll's unique and outspoken voice, combined with his limitless knowledge of all things geek, make him the perfect geek ambassador to enter into a Starfleet discussion about Star Trek: Nemesis. Qstorm submits that the movie gets more hate than it deserves. But will his crew stage a mutiny? Plus, Bill Paxton remembered.

Happy New Year! Join the Red Shirts on the U.S.S. Internet as we discuss Star Trek Discovery. The Walking Dead's Sonequa Martin-Green joins the cast. Is it logical to assume she will appear on both shows or will Negan's bat Lucille free her up to focus solely on Discovery? Plus, Star Trek trivia!

The crew of the U.S.S. Internet prepare for another away mission. This episode, we declare our love for The Next Generation cast, but discuss how the transition from TV to big screen saw its share of problems, with an emphasis on Star Trek: First Contact and the Borg. Apologies for audio distortions...subspace frequencies can be unpredictable.

 "There's a...thing out there." And this thing first appeared back in 1979. It's designation? Star Trek: The Motion Picture. And after we saw it, some of us wondered, "Where are they going with this...thing?" (Oops, wrong franchise). The Red Shirts turn off all holodeck safety protocols to examine the problems and issues of Star Trek's big screen debut!

Qstorm, Big Sexy, and Craig J. have beamed aboard the USS Internet, opened hailing frequencies on multiple subspace channels and are ready to discuss how they discovered Star Trek, what made them diehard fans, and why they continue to be fans today!
