Old v. Gold 206: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

For Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, we’re joined by some folks who know their way around the Alpha Quadrant: Captain Matt, Lt. Commander Eddy, and Dr. Ken from the Starboard Power Coupling podcast (“A Star Trek Podcast You Hope Doesn’t Fail,” with new eps every Thursday). With 30-plus years, several franchise series, and a (dreadful) movie reboot between then and now, does Khan still possess its genetically enhanced power? Join us as we compare Shatner and Montalban, scan the science and plot holes, and pop our future scientist collars and find out. As Kirk and/or Spock would say to a more-than-ready-to-comply Sulu, “Indulge yourself.”

That’s why the warp core went offline when they blew a fuse.

Podcasters: Robert, Tim, Joanna, Sam, Captain Matt, Lt. Commander Eddy, Dr. Ken
