Standard Orbit 174: Battle of the Battles Battle of the Mutara Nebula Vs. Battle of Khitomer Star Trek was never about big space battles but the movies, as well as the series, had some pretty intense skirmishes. In this week's Standard Orbit: we look at two big battles from the TOS movie timeline: TWOK's Battle of the Mutara Nebula and TUC's Battle of Khitomer. Zach Moore is still off filming in an undisclosed location. Earl Grey's Richard Marquez joins me to discuss these two exciting scenes and compare the differences in approach, scale, tactics, and outcome. We talk about a possible different scenario for the Battle of Khitomer as well. We hope you enjoy this week's episode of Standard Orbit and share your insights and opinions on the Babel Conference.
