Standard Orbit 255: God Of The Gods
Godlike Beings Of TOS, With Trek Geeks.
This week on Standard Orbit, hosts Ken Tripp, Zach Moore and Hayley Stoddart are joined by Dan Davidson and Bill Smith from Trek Geeks to talk the many godlike beings of The Original Series and religion through the lens of Star Trek. This is part one of a two-part discussion, so be sure to listen to part two where we talk gods and religion on Deep Space Nine tomorrow on the Trek Geeks podcast episode 167!
What makes a god in the Star Trek universe? Would it really hurt to gather just a few laurel leaves for them? Does absolute power corrupt absolutely? Can we look past the third season production values of And The Children Shall Lead? These thoughts and many more on this week's Standard Orbit, boldly listen!
