This week, we were charged with a great task! So before we begin our journey home, we have to undertake that task. No, not finding Spock - we've already done that. This task is giving YOU a new episode of Star Trek: Asterisk!

You had BETTER have read Steve's review of the movie. And I really hope you've been into the Officer's Lounge this week. Plus, it'd be really nice of you to leave us a message, because HAILING FREQUENICES ARE OPEN at 513-ASTRISK (278-7475). But most of all, we'd love you forever if you joined us this and every Thursday for the live show.

NOTE: After we finish The Original Series motion pictures, we'll be on hiatus. But never fear, for we shall return! That's right - starting November 9th, we're moving to Friday nights! So mark your calendars and make it so - we're engaging with The Next Generation in November!
