What Deep Space?

We are about to watch the pilot episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, for the podcast next week. This has me questioning something I never did the entire time I was enjoying this series way back when. Exactly why is this show called Deep Space Nine? What Deep Space is the station in? It’s right near Bajor, isn’t it? Sure, it’s a long way from Earth, but after all, Earth isn’t the only planet in the Federation. Then again, I’m glad the show isn’t called Star Trek: In Orbit Nine.

Cavebabble Episode 118: Star Trek Pilots- Encounter at Farpoint


Tonight, we continue our look at the pilot episode of each Star Trek series by delving into Encounter at Farpoint, the inagural voyage of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Jean-Luc Picard and crew take the Enterprise D where only Q knows what is going on. Gaze upon the manly wonder of Riker, and weep with the emphathy of Troi. Watch for intergalactic jellyfish! This episode is brought to you by Onesies.

Favorite Sci-Fi Vehicles: USS Enterprise


Vehicle:
USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-A)
Film/s: Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979), Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982), Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984), Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986), Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989), Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991)

I’ve been dancing around the outside of my core favorites, but can’t resist any longer. I love Trek. I love Trek films. And I love the Enterprise. Specifically, I love the NCC-1701-A. Whether exploring the depths of V’ger, taking on Khan, or heading for the second star to the right, Enterprise is as much a character as Kirk. She’s taken a beating, been completely rebuilt, and eventually replaced with a later model. But this version is my favorite, and always will be.

Then again, that 1701-E is a slick beast, and sports the coolest escape pods in Starfleet history. Heck, throw her in there, too. It’s an Enterprise love fest!
