Episode Info

Episode Info: This week on Episode 468 of Priority One --- We Trek Out how Star Trek has been keeping us entertained during lockdown with videos galore! In Star Trek gaming, lots going on in the mobile world this month with both Star Trek Fleet Command and Star Trek Timelines. Plus, a new expansion to the tabletop RPG - Star Trek Adventures. Sid City Stories If you’re sitting at your computer or lounging on the sofa surfing the web on your phone, you might be interested in a story-time adventure set in the Star Trek DS9 universe. You see, at the start of the pandemic and subsequent lock downs, Alexander Siddig --- known to trekkies for his role as Dr. Julian Bashir --- took to live-streaming! His Sid City Social Club has been a huge success with trekkies and with guests like Nana Visitor and -- most recently - Andrew Robinson - there’s something for all trekkies to enjoy. On July 6th, Sid City Social Club posted a video of Siddig and Robinson reading a story titled, “Alone Together: A DS9 Companion: Episode 1 ‘These Days’" written by Matthew Campbell. This first episode tells the story of Dr. Julian Bashir making an emergency trip to Cardassia. There Elim Garak -- now the leader of Cardassia Prime explains to the doctor that Cardassia has fallen victim to a pandemic that threatens the entire planet. This first episode is just under 33 minutes --- so, if you loved Garak and Julian’s relationship, be sure to #TrekThisOut. Links, of course, will be in the shownotes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M44QMKWMxuQ&feature=emb_title And if you’re looking for something a little more musical, then you should definitely #TrekOut Robert Picardo’s latest video. Our favorite Holographic Doctor is passing time during the lockdown lamenting he’s not Brent Spiner in this hilarious song.

On July 2nd, CBS All Access released a special “Away Mission” version of The Ready Room - hosted by Wil Wheaton. In this installment, we get a detailed look at Rios’s ship, “La Sirena” from Production Designer Todd Cherniavsky. From drawings, to models, to walk throughs on the set - this will definitely satisfy our listeners who love to learn about the ships in Star Trek. Following the guided tour, Wheaton welcomes Sir Patrick Stewart via Zoom to discuss Season 1 of Star Trek: Picard. During their time, they spoke about some of Stewart’s proudest moments, including getting scolded by Marina Sirtis on Napenthe and his final scenes with Data.
