EP. 274 — Talking Trek (with Tawny Newsome & Paul F. Tompkins)

Is there a Star Trek movie worthy of boarding the Unspooled spaceship with the other all-time great films? Tawny Newsome & Paul F. Tompkins (Star Trek: Lower Decks, The Pod Directive) join Paul & Amy to answer that question by taking a close look at 1996’s time-traveling adventure Star Trek: First Contact. They’ll also debate their favorite Trek casts, discuss the latest season of Picard, and explain why The Next Generation was a surprisingly horny show.


Next week, Paul & Amy are watching Indiana Jones & The Temple Of Doom!
