Even the Trek.fm crew needs to go off-duty from time to time. And when that time comes, we all gather in The Observation Lounge to talk about things not of the Star Trek universe. Join us for an hour of general geek talk on a wide range of topics.
Tiny, Tiny Arms. Enter the future of gaming with the Oculus Rift, gaze into the eyes of the past with Sauroniops, listen to the confusing and duplicitous words of George Lucas, fall into a cornucopia of wormholes with Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, and hope that Ronald D. Moore’s Helix isn’t canceled.
PlayStation 4 Non-Announcement. We discuss Sony’s three hour-long press conference to nowhere, Jurassic Park’s bite chunk-removable toys, Sean Connery in 3D, the twentysomething squabble-based sitcom with Batman and Superman, and more.
It’s A Die Hard Knock Life. We discuss The Doctor in 3D, the future of video games, the exploding Russian meteor, the war between Tesla and the New York Times, and how manly you have to be to enjoy a “Die Hard” film.
Returning Storylines. Cory and Topanga’s daughter has been cast, “1952” has been given a title, Paul Giamatti wants a horn, DARPA has actual LASERs, The X-Files have a comic, Ellen Page may or may not have aged, David Bowie’s son has a Warcraft film, and Sony has an announcement to make.
Comics and TV News. We cover a smorgasbord of geeky news. Holodecks are on their way, Fraction’s “Hawkeye” can help Sandy victims, JGL is playing everyone, Stan Lee turns 90, Kathryn is packing her bags for the Wonderful World of Middle Earth, and much much more.
