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.
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!
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…
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 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.
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.
The 10Backward crew have a fondness for exploring the more maligned aspects of Trek and Enterprise has certainly come in for it’s share of criticism over the years. So in finest 10Backward tradition and with the approach of the first new Star Trek series in over a decade, we go back to the beginning of our Trek through the stars and have a look at Enterprise’s first season.
It will come as no shock that we had so much to say that this is
episode 1 of 3 of this Enterprise retrospective. Here we discuss the pilot, Broken Bow and begin looking at the characters.
Star Trek 5: The Final Frontier. Often, in our experience, maligned, criticised, condemned as one of the worst of the original movies.
