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.

Enterprise Season 1 Retrospective – Part 1

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.

In Defence of Star Trek 5

Star Trek 5: The Final Frontier. Often, in our experience, maligned, criticised, condemned as one of the worst of the original movies.

But is it? Is it really that bad?
Here in 10Backward, we believe in Second Chances, (Mainly because Rick get’s excited about 2 Rikers…) and so we re-watched The Final Frontier and got together to discus the films flaws, it’s highlights and overall our experience of this movie. What do we conclude? Listen to find out!

War! Part 2 – TNG, VOY & ENT

Part 2 of our discussion about War in Star Trek. Following Will’s dive into the wars of The Original Series, Richard and Rick examine The Next Generation, Voyager and Enterprise.
