PART 2 of the LEAGUEPODCAST Star Trek Oddio comic for GOLD KEY #7! See leaguepodcast.com for part 1!
The original crew encounter a planet where the inhabitants practice the ancient art of Voodoo! Voodoo from across space, it makes its deadly mark on Earth! According to the cover, anyway. We think "deadly" is a little much. Still, can Kirk act his way out of this one? Listen and learn!
Playing the famous half-Vulcan requires a little meditative depth and a lot of brow-shaving. Heroes villain Zachary Quinto plays Spock in the reboot of the Star Trek franchise, with the blessing of original Spock Leonard Nimoy. Quinto tells NPR about befriending Nimoy, shaping eyebrows and more.
We take on one of our favorite movies, "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan," while also acknowledging the flaws that make it all the more lovable. Topics include: How Genesis is the galaxy’s worst Kickstarter project; Why it’s always important to count the planets, especially at Ceti Alpha; The size of the Botany Bay library and why it makes Khan so mad at Kirk; Why Scott’s email is more secure than the Reliant; The real name of Khan’s right-hand man; and how Spock’s death solves Kirk’s mid-life crisis. Also, we scientifically prove that "Wrath of Khan" is better than Star Wars.
