As it was, so it is again. Meaning: we talk Star Trek again! Specifically, we discuss William Shatner’s new Trek documentary Chaos on the Bridge, exploring the tumultuous path of the creation of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Gene Roddenberry’s vision for the future. Before we get into that though we give a brief tribute to “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, who died last week, too young. Of course that takes us down some tangents dealing with everything from pro-wrestling to the current state of internet-fueled outrage, but somehow we get back on track — er — Trek.
