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 stills being produced (Discovery, the new Picard series, and beyond). Join Jimmy Akin, Domenico Bettinelli, and Fr. Cory Sticha as the dive into the hidden layers and deeper meaning of Star Trek.

Strange New World (Enterprise) - Archer and crew camp out on their first Earth-like planet, but something's in the air that's make the crew behave strangely. Jimmy, Dom, and Fr. Cory discuss Archer's recklessness and T'Pol's sensible cautiousness, plus the distrust between species that bubbles to the surface.
Time and Again (Voyager) - What would you do if you knew the world was ending in 24 hours and you couldn't warn anyone? Jimmy, Dom, and Fr. Cory tackle this Star Trek Voyager episode that is an early attempt to establish Janeway's character and ethos and how she approaches moral problems.
Past Prologue (DS9) - In the 2nd episode of Deep Space 9, we're introduced to Cardassian spy Garak and all the espionage intrigue he brings. Jimmy, Dom, and Fr. Cory discuss Bashir's innocence, Garak's trickiness, and Kira's divided loyalties in a story that sets the stage for so much to come.
The Naked Now (TNG) - The Naked Now is one of the least liked of all Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes and so Jimmy Akin, Dom Bettinelli, and Fr. Cory Sticha delve into all the uncomfortable campiness in a hilariously cringe-worthy discussion.
The Corbomite Manuever (TOS) - The first Star Trek after the pilot episodes gives us an early look at the Kirk, Spock, McCoy dynamic. Jimmy Akin, Dom Bettinelli, and Fr. Cory Sticha lift a glass of tranya as they discuss Kirk's leadership, McCoy's insubordination, and Spock's razor-sharp mind and wit as well as Clint Howard's guest spot.
