This week we tackle the cultural phenomenon: Star Trek. As the first episode were we talk about the importance of the Star trek,  Tom talks about his love for The Original Series and its role in pioneering a new and diverse television in the 60s. Kate explains The Next Generation's role in technology, ethics, and education. And Adrian makes sure that Deep Space 9 gets a seat at the Star Trek table and talks about the shift in religious representation.
