The loves of Captain Picard

Captain Jean-Luc Picard, the seasoned veteran of space, respected by all his peers, diplomat, strategist, archeologist, explorer… and womaniser!? Maybe not, but he’s had his share of dalliances over the years. Join us in 10Backward as we discuss the women in his life!

Discovery – Into Part 2

Happy new year and let’s hope 2018 is going to be another Trek-Tastic year! Now, we officially add uninvited guest Gemma to our ranks as we have a good old look at how the latest version of Star Trek is going. At the time of recording, we’d watched up to Episode 10, although 11 will have been released by the time this comes out. So we recap our highs and lows of Discovery so far and how we’re feeling about it as a whole.

In Defence of Insurrection

We are joined again by Rob Chapman and Rick and Rob load up with 7 tons of itritium explosives and bazookas to save an innocent, peace loving film from the evil attacks of Will and Richard. But are they so dead set on attacking Insurrection? Can Rick and Rob truly muster any defence of this film? It’s much maligned, is this fair or unfair?

All Good Things

It’s the 30th Anniversary year of Star Trek: The Next Generation! We recently examined the pilot, Encounter at Farpoint and felt it was only right to follow up with a look at the series finale, All Good Things.

Sorry about the cockney accent.

And sorry about Picard’s pyjamas…

Just sorry.

Star Trek Newbies

At 10Backward, we were told that maybe some of our topics could be daunting for the more casual Trek fan. So we decided to do a show on what we felt were good episodes to watch if you weren’t a big Trekkie already, or maybe entirely new to the show. Furthermore we went out and made ‘volunteers’ watch these eps and tell us what they thought! Find out what happened by listening!

The Butchers Knife Cares Not for the Lambs Cry

At 10Backward, we’re eagerly watching Discovery and of course, we have a lot to talk about. This is possibly our most divisive episode yet, one of us liked it… well, listen and see what we al thought!

Context is for Kings

Join us in 10Backward as we take a look at the 3rd Episode of Discovery, Context is for Kings. We meet more of our regular cast and set the stage for the season with Burnham’s new position and the war in full force. How did we like it? What struck us a good Trek? Why are we recapping episodes so many weeks after everyone else? Join us for none of more answers to these questions!

Encounter at Farpoint

In all the Discovery excitement, it’s been easy to overlook that it’s the 30th Anniversary of The Next Generation! But we haven’t! In the first of a few shows looking at elements of TNG, we go back to where it all began, Deneb IV, ‘beyond which lies the great unexplored mass of the galaxy,’ or at least 7 years of awesome Trek action!

Discovery Begins!

It’s here! It’s finally arrived! After 12 years, Star Trek is back on TV!

So, how was it? Here at 10Backward, we watched, we re-watched and we made notes. Then we got together and discussed the heck out of it!

ALERT! This podcast will contain spoilers for episode’s 1 and 2 of Star Trek Discovery, ‘The Vulcan Hello’ and ‘Battle at the Binary Stars’. If you haven’t watched these… don’t listen! Go and watch them first!
