A persuasive Trekkie somehow convinces a series virgin to go on a seven-year-mission to watch every episode of every Star Trek series. Can someone fall in love with The Original Series 50 years later? Is Dr. Pulaski a better character than Dr. Crusher? What’s the deal with Wesley and Geordi, anyway? The answers to these questions and more can be found every Tuesday.

Your hosts:

Richard Goodness

At this point Richard Goodness may or may not be a Trekkie; that is one of the central mysteries of Trekabout. In addition to newbie-level commentary on Star Trek, Goodness is a writer and musician. He is best known, among the kinds of people who pay attention to avant-garde text-based games, as a writer of avant-garde text-based games including TWEEZER; The Richard Goodness Trilogy; and Zest, the 23rd place winner in the 2014 Interactive Fiction Competition. His hobbies include drinking coffee and using graph paper to map out videogame dungeons. He lives in Portland, OR.

Eric Murphy

A Trekkie for over 20 years, Murphy bring verve, passion, and a weird obsession with phaser rifles to his love of Star Trek. When he’s not watching Star Trek, reading Star Trek novels, running a Star Trek podcast, or thinking about Star Trek, Murphy spends time with his dog and eats ice cream. He lives in Philadelphia.
