As much as I enjoyed the first season, I am pleased see some nods back to the original show, with the uniforms and Klingon ships. The big question will be how much we see of the Enterprise and what that will look like.

Of course, Now Captain Pike is taking command of Discovery, the Trekkies are going to have to update their Encyclopedias with a new Captain of the Enterprise.

The group that ran double-agents for Britain during WWII was known as the "Twenty Committee".

Because in Roman numerals twenty is a double cross.

I am so glad you took the time to post this Squiggly.

Do know that it is ok to not be ok sometimes.

I don't think the main wing of the Democratic party has learned any lessons from 2016, and if they run another centrist whose chief attraction is that they're not Trump it's not gonna be enough.

Will swap you Jeremy Corbyn if we can have Hilary leading the opposition.

FotN is a largely forgotten cash-in after the ET craze in the mid-80's, I admit to having enjoyable memories of seeing this in theaters.

We watched this in English on one of those days near the end of term where they just shove a film on instead of teaching a lesson.

If you had the ability to travel back in time 20 years, whilst retaining all your memories and personality, would you?

Fuck No! Broadband would be years away, I'd have seen every movie. People were still using VHS tapes for god's sake!

There aren't any good old days. There is today. There is tomorrow.

Would you rather have an awkward fumble with a sexy mermaid or a night of passion with a fish-headed lady?

I've every now and then I pull out Ocarina Of Time and continue my playthrough when I was a kid I got about halfway into the game and at some point gave up. A couple of years ago I started it again and can't say I've been in any hurry but last week I beat the water temple!

Question for the next person: what was your most-disappointing live performance experience?

The Killers, at Leeds 2005 when Mr. Brightside was on every radio. They just sounded exactly like the album with no live flare.

Next Question: Have you ever had a moustache, and if so did you wear it as well as Saniss??

Well, that was certainly exponentially better than the last episode of Star Trek!

So the Klingons look different and everyone has holograms but so what!?

The leads have a really fresh and interesting dynamic from the very start. It manages to feel very Trek yet completely fresh.

I'm really enjoying ]Storybreak by Freddie Wong of that guy from youtube fame.

He, and a pair of writers sit down and break the story for a movie or TV show based on a famous IP. Sometimes this is a straight up attempt at the best way to adapt something, like Zelda into a new medium others they have more fun with it like Jar Jar: A Star Wars Story.

They even take films like Jumper and try and work out how it could be a better movie which reminded me a lot of another podcast I used to listen to...

We did an Extended Edition episode on it and rather enjoyed it.

It's not in any way ground breaking but if you enjoy adventure films and want to watch a Pirates sequel you could do far worse.
