Secrets of Star Trek

The Secrets of Star Trek is a fan celebration and discussion of the long-running TV and movie franchise that looks at all of the TV series, movies, and other properties going back to the Original Series and right up to all the new Star Trek being produced today and in the near future. Secrets of Star Trek takes an episode-by-episode deep dive into all the completed series (The Original Series, The Animated Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise), the movies, and all that is still being produced (Discovery, the new Picard series, and beyond). Join Jimmy Akin, Domenico Bettinelli, and Fr. Cory Sticha as they dive into the hidden layers and deeper meaning of Star Trek.

Kayshon, His Eyes Open (LD) - A Trek episode, laughingly discussed. Jimmy Akin, Dom Bettinelli, and Fr. Cory Sticha talk about the latest episode of Lower Decks that is chock full of both Easter eggs and literary allusions (but not really metaphors, Jimmy argues).
