And Porthos saved the ship! – Pets in Star Trek

Hello! Welcome to another episode of 10Backward. This episode, we are discussing the pets we see in Star Trek. What does it say about a character to keep a pet? Should pets go on deep space missions? Whatever happened to that spider O’Brien had? These important questions are all raised and pondered!

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?

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!

In Defence of Nemesis

Star Trek Nemesis… a much maligned final entry into the TNG film series. Did it kill the franchise? Well, always ones to take a different path, the 10Backward crew attempt to mount a defence for Nemesis. Maybe killing the Franchise is a bit more complex than one film. Maybe there’s other factors affecting the box office. Maybe the story has hidden depths… Do we succeed? Listen to find out!
