The Ready Room 4: There Be Whales Here! / by Trek fm

The Voyage Home.

After the heavy themes of The Wrath of Khan and The Search for Spock, the studio gave fans a lighthearted ending to the storyline that proved that Star Trek could laugh at itself—something that hadn’t happened since the original series episode “The Trouble with Tribbles.” The result was Star Trek's biggest box office pull ever, a record that stood until 2009. In this episode of The Ready Room we take a look at this whale of a film and find out why Chris feels its some of the most fun you'll have watching Trek while Greg would rather listen to a Catian's claws being run down a chalkboard.

In our news segment we see that, at long last, Walter Koenig is getting his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, celebrate Captain Picard Day, take a first look at a new IDW comic book series set in the Abramsverse, hear Anthony Montgomery and Garrett Wang speaking out about Enterprise and Voyager, peak into a starship development program at the US Department of Defense, find out more about the upcoming browser-based game Infinite Space, and get the scoop on more Star Trek 2 news.
