Talk Trek Extravaganza 2010

Welcome to 2010!

We kicked off the new year by testing out some new audio equipment and having a bit of a Talk Trek Pre-Extravaganza party.  The actual Extravaganza (known from now on as TTE) will be held in March 2010.  It’s going to be huge!

The Pre-TTE was held at an undisclosed location in northeastern Wisconsin (way back in the woods à la Bon Iver) last weekend and video was taken by the NewPowerSoulMan.

Enjoy!

Episode 41 – The Deadly Years

It’s been a long time coming… I’m sure most of you thought we had gone down that deadly year route. But alas, we have returned – more refreshed than ever!

This episode is sort of a scary one. When Enterprise discovers a colony full of rapidly-aging scientists, whatever caused the rapid aging afflicts them as well. Chekov may be their only hope for survival.

When Chekov is your only hope for survival, you have some real problems.
