Hello listeners and thankyou for joining us again in 10Backward. This episode was made at our special patreon patron party, where we invited patrons to Will and Gemma’s house. There, we all watched The Wrath of Khan and then recorded a discussion about it. So we are joined by the wonderful Rob Chapman, the incredible Dr Jen Howse and the splendid Ian Howse, hope you enjoy.

Welcome to a ‘quick drink’ in 10Backward, a special episode extra to our usuals, where we discuss something we just can’t wait for!
In this case it’s the premiere of season 2 of Discovery! This was a pretty big deal to Disco fans and we thought we’d share some immediate thoughts. Did we like it? Loathe it? Indifferent? Find out here!
Hello and Happy New Year! Our first new episode of 2019 is a fantastic interview we did with a real life Astrobiologist! Professor Charles (not Xavier!) Cockell joins us to talk about life on other worlds, Star Trek’s depiction of alien life and the best place to watch The Thing!
50 Episodes! (not counting special eps we’ve done) We are so very pleased to have done 50 editions of 10Backward and especially pleased that people have enjoyed it. We’ve had wonderful feedback from so many lovely listeners and it makes us very happy that you’ve enjoyed our ramblings! To mark this milestone, we asked our belived patrons to join us to discuss Star Treks own 50th anniversary celebration, Star Trek Beyond. We had a fantastic time recording this and if you’re a patron, head over to our Patreon page for the extended cut!
Harcourt Fenton Mudd.. Beloved rogue or evil murderer? Delightful conman or human trafficker? Mudd has been portrayed differently and we wonder if his actions have always merited the lovable scoundrel style he’s been viewed as. Discovery shows us a very different take on the character after all.. But is it all that different? Join us as we examine some Mudd!
Destination Star Trek is a 3 day event, so naturally we recorded a second podcast to get more detail in! Rick, Will and Rick are joined by Rob Chapman (@TrekkieRob) and Kevin Stanley (@freelancekevin) to recap their experiences for day 2 of DST, which include a Horta, meeting cosplayers and much more.
3 of us from 10Backward visited the UK trek convention known as Destination Star Trek over the 19th to 21st October 2018. Here we discuss our experiences and thoughts of Day 1, including Doug Jones being dubbed, Walter Koenig forgetting the Psycorps, roadside picnics, car park undressing and much more! We are joined by special guests, Rob Chapman (@TrekkieRob on twitter), Nick Loven (@nrloven) and Kevin Stanley (@freelancekevin)
In the latest 10Backward, we take a look at the classic episode, The City on the Edge of Forever. As well as discussing the episode, we also consider Harlan Ellison’s original story and the changes made between page and screen.
And we wander off on tangents and discuss talking time doughnuts… Because us.
In the second part of our journey through season 1 of Enterprise, we continue looking at the characters and discuss our highlights of the season. Sadly Richard makes no further Bowie impressions though.
