TNG 30th Anniversary.
The first episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation aired on September 28, 1987. Still today, we are watching, enjoying, and discussing this incredible story—and after thirty years, we do it through rose-colored glasses.
In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Lee Hutchison, Richard Marquez, and Amy Nelson discuss possible future episode ideas and share our hope for this podcast. Hear Lee’s behind-the-scenes wishes, Richard’s hope to travel and meet the cast of TNG and other hosts of Trek.fm, and Amy’s desire to look at individual seasons with a twist. We take this opportunity to share our thoughts and invite everyone to listen throughout 2017.
