The Maquis

The 10Backward crew journey into the Badlands this episode to look at The Maquis. This group, separating from the Federation were a new concept that gave us the chance to say ‘so what is so good about the Federation?’ We also got to take a good look at the price of peace. So were the Maquis good guys or bad guys? Were their motives pure or misguided? We take a look.

The Voyager Conspiracy

Rick Palmer flipping loves conspiracy theories! So naturally, 10Backward would soon indulge in a discussion about the Voyager episode, The Voyager Conspiracy.
Or would we?
Yes.
Or is that what we want you to think?
Yes it is. That’s what we did.
But why? Was there a secret, more sinister purpose behind ‘discussing’ this ‘episode’????
No… stop it, this is weird now…

Tuvok

The 10Backward crew had an exciting Saturday! We travelled to Geekabilia, Lincoln and met Tim Russ! A lovely man, we then recorded a podcast all about Tuvok, the Vulcan of Voyager. To hear about our encounter, listen to the podcast! We also tried our first vlog too, which can be viewed here – https://youtu.be/DTTIXean0Yg

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.

Chakotay

In this episode, the guys discuss the USS Voyager’s 1st officer, Chakotay, who they generally remember as being a bit boring. Is this fair though? Was he actually a decent First Officer and a fair depiction of a Native American in space?

We find out what they think now that they’re older, maybe a bit wiser, and have watched some VOY episodes that put him in the centre of the plot

Tropes!

The 10Backward crew discuss ‘Tropes’. Those recurring themes, frequent occurrences that crop up in Trek. In what might well become a recurring subject, (our own Trope!) Richard, Will and Rick have each picked a Trope to talk through. So tune in and be regaled with the stories of Off-screen battles, the travails of Harry Kim’s doomed love life and Holodeck malfunctions.
