An episode of Deep Space Nine makes its first appearance on TrekFavorites! Barbara and Steve Sande picked In The Pale Moonlight, Season 6, Episode 9, and dug into what it says about the character of the crew, the moral ambiguities and compromises that are made in times of war, with some real-world comparisons.

TrekFavorites 005: TNG - 'Darmok' with Joe Kissell

One of Star Trek: The Next Generation’s most revered episodes is Darmok, S05E02, so it came as no surprise that Joe Kissell picked it as one of his TrekFavorites. What we didn’t see coming was the deep and personal connection Joe has with this episode, and why he feels it depicts the challenge of communication in a surprisingly realistic way.

Joe Kissell is the publisher of  Take Control Books, as well as the author of over 60 books on a wide variety of tech topics. Keep up with him if you can on his personal site, JoeKissell.com, and on Twitter.

Kelly Guimont takes us to the end of Star Trek: The Next Generation by picking S07E25/26,  “All Good Things...” as her TrekFavorite. Kelly explains why it was special to her as both a fan and a student, her connection to a favorite actor with another TV series, and why it wrapped up TNG so well.

Kelly Guimont is a longtime Apple geek, sitting down (on a telephone book) in front of an Apple IIe in 1983. She can still hear the ticking of the ImageWriter. Thanks to the miracle of the adjustable leg desk, she no longer needs the phonebook. Kelly writes for The Mac Observer, is the host of the Daily Observations Podcast, is co-host of The Aftershow, and yet still has more to say which she saves for Twitter and Micro.blog.

TrekFavorites 003: Voyager - 'Mortal Coil' with John Champion

John Champion of Mission Log: A Roddenberry Star Trek Podcast talks about why Star Trek: Voyager S04E12, Mortal Coil, is one of his TrakFavorites. Not just a “meaning of life” kind of episode, Mortal Coil has many different layers, some of which apply to the controversies of today.
