Khan and Bones trousers

Hello listeners and thankyou for joining us again in 10Backward. This episode was made at our special patreon patron party, where we invited patrons to Will and Gemma’s house. There, we all watched The Wrath of Khan and then recorded a discussion about it. So we are joined by the wonderful Rob Chapman, the incredible Dr Jen Howse and the splendid Ian Howse, hope you enjoy.

Prime Directive – Don’t Worry, Be Happy!

Hello! Welcome to another episode of 10Backward, a Star Trek podcast from merry old England.

This episode we decide to take an in depth look at the Prime Directive. One of Trek’s mainstays and the motive for many a good story, this subject is a biggie! So we decided to do 2 parts! This is part one, where we look at times the Prime Directive was not a barrier or even that big a concern! Hence the title! We hope you enjoy this episode and return for part 2!

Spock’s World

Welcome to Episode 4 of the Trek Book Club podcast, Spock’s World.

Rob and Rick discuss the book Spock’s World, by Diane Duane. As well as discussing the story we will also talk about the reactions of everyone who took part in the Trek Book Club day on Twitter.

The Savage Curtain

The 10Backward crew look at the Original Series episode, The Savage Curtain. An alien culture forces the crew into a battle between good and evil to study the concept. While not considered a highlight of the show, this episode does grant us some iconic figures in Trek lore. We try to reconcile how a less favoured episode can give us the enduring Surak and Kahless and see if we can discuss the Excalbian rock monster without noting his similarity to… well you know.

For this task, we recruited our first guest, Rob Chapman! Big thanks to Rob for joining us. Rob can be found on Twitter @trekkierob where I am still apologising to him for bringing him in on this topic of all the topics!

One of Our Planets is Missing

10Backward makes another foray into the world of Star Trek, The Animated Series. Once again we randomly select an episode, this time coming up with One of Our Planets is Missing. What will we find?

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!

10 Backward – The Pilot

The pilot episode of the new Star Trek Podcast, 10backward, in which Rick, Richard and Will introduce themselves, talk about how they got into Star Trek, and how it inspired Rick’s hair cut. They plan to discuss the Kelvinverse, but get side tracked talking about Alien Egg Tulips, Potato Casserole and Rick’s imaginary friend. With hilarious results!
