The 50th Episode! Patreon roundtable on Beyond!

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! 

Section 31

Welcome listeners, to the latest episode of 10Backward, where we discuss Section 31. Are they the Federation’s secret saviours or secret shame? We analyse the ideas behind them, the real world inspirations and what this says about the utopian vision of the future.

The Cage

The crew gather once again in 10Backward to discuss the first ever Star Trek. Yes, with the appearance of Pike’s Enterprise in the Discovery finale, we thought we’d have a look back at the original Captain Christopher Pike and how well The Cage worked as the pilot to Star Trek as we see it today.

Happy Birthday DS9 – Emissary

25 years ago, Emissary, the pilot for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine aired. Did we realise back then it was going to lead into a crazy seven year story? How the characters were going to grow and develop? We’d see love, loss, war and baseball? This year, we at 10Backward are going to pull out our full DS9 love and do several episodes about this groundbreaking show, starting appropriately enough, with this one!

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!

Enterprise Season 1 Retrospective – Part 3

The third and final part of the 10Backward trip down memory lane into the first season of Enterprise. Has it been a long road, getting from there to here? Sorry… couldn’t resist! We wrap up the season with our lowpoints, our thoughts on the temporal cold war and our final thoughts.

Enterprise Season 1 Retrospective – Part 2

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.
