Mission Log: A Roddenberry Star Trek Podcast
167 - Menage a Troi

All Lwaxana Troi wants is for her daughter, Deanna, to settle down and raise a family. Or that is all she wanted before she, Deanna and Commander Riker were kidnapped by a particularly unscrupulous Ferengi. Can they escape the fiendish Ferengi clutches? And is this the week we send young Wesley Crusher off to the academy? Find out when Mission Log indulges in a little Menage a Troi.

166 - Sarek

An old friend returns to the Star Trek universe. The 1701-D will play host to a series of negotiations to be directed by Ambassador Sarek. However, when an illness plaguing the ambassador puts the talks in jeopardy, Captain Picard plays host in a more meaningful and potentially dangerous way. More than old home week, it is an examination of aging and mortality when we put Sarek into the Mission Log.

162 - Captain's Holiday

Time off from work means curling up with a good book, sitting by the pool and maybe meeting someone special. If you're Captain Picard, it might also mean a conniving Ferengi, security officers from the 27th century and a mysterious object that can snuff out a star.

Doctor Paul Stubbs is on the verge of completing the work of his life - an experiment on which he has worked for 20 years. It is also an experiment that can only be run once every two centuries, so getting it right would be good. Sadly, an experiment run by Wesley Crusher has taken on a life of its own. Literally. It could kill the work of Doctor Stubbs. It could also kill everyone on the Enterprise. Season three of Next Gen begins when we put Evolution in the Mission Log.

We know that as a writer David Gerrold has always got at least one more interesting story to tell. For his return to Mission Log, we dig deep into the circumstances around the first two seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation and what led to David's departure. It's a personal and sometimes difficult look at what makes or breaks a TV show in production.

Plus we kick off a new segment by welcoming Larry Nemecek to discuss Discovered Documents from the Roddenberry archive. Visit Larry at http://larrynemecek.com

Finally, we take a moment to remember Grace Lee Whitney who played Yeoman Janice Rand.

135 - The Icarus Factor

Riker is sad because his dad is on the Enterprise. Worf is sad because he has no dad to watch him get beaten ritualistically. Troi is sad because Riker is leaving the Enterprise. And Wesley… is just so Wesley. Promotions! Grudges! Old flames! TRON costumes! It’s a family affair when we put The Icarus Factor in the Mission Log.

134 - Time Squared

Captain Picard returns to the Enterprise in shuttle number five. Now they will have a matching set since there are already a Captain Picard and a shuttle number five onboard.

Find out when we put Time Squared in the Mission Log.

133 - The Royale

Investigating the wreckage of a 300-year-old spaceship from Earth, the Enterprise finds a building capable of supporting life in a very unlikely place. But what they find inside is even more unlikely: a staffed and operating, mid-1990s hotel, complete with a front desk, room service and a casino. How did it get there? And how do Riker, Data, and Worf get out? Find out when Mission Log checks into The Royale.

132 - Contagion

The Enterprise has a rendezvous with its ailing sister ship, the Yamato. Sadly, it explodes and Picard takes up its mission. But the Enterprise starts suffering some of the same symptoms of the Yamato - pre-explosion. Also, they are in the Neutral Zone. And there are Romulans. And a planet with technology thousands of years ahead of the Federation and Starfleet. And still that is not everything. Tons to talk about when we put Contagion in the Mission Log.

129 - A Matter of Honor

Did you know Starfleet has an exchange program? Well it does. And Commander Riker is away on a Klingon ship. For a very short time. Because the Klingon ship is about to be destroyed by a subatomic something that’s eating the hull of the Klingon ship. That was spotted by the Benzite exchange officer on the Enterprise. He did not bother to tell anyone about it though. Bottom line: Everyone has a lot to learn when we put A Matter of Honor in the Mission Log.

Things will probably be okay when we put Loud as a Whisper in the Mission Log.

123 - Where Silence Has Lease

Charting a previously unexplored section of the galaxy, the Enterprise is trapped in an inky blackness. An even inkier blackness than the void of space through which she normally cruises.
