Over the past fifty years, Star Trek has developed a dense mythology. But at the same time, it has always tried to produce episodes and movies which stand on their own. 

In this episode of Stage Nine, John is joined by Lee Hutchison of The Nerd Party to discuss the concept of optional canon. We discuss whether or not some installments are designed to both with and without the previous one, and how that applies in particular to Star Trek Beyond.

In news, Mike is joined by Adam Drosin of Saturday Morning Trek to recap the events of the 50th anniversary convention in Las Vegas. We discuss panels featuring Brannon Braga, Ronald D. Moore and Naren Shankar, and Mike shares his experience at the Ira Steven Behr photo op.
