The Ready Room 99: Shooter McGavin on the Enterprise-C / by Trek fm

Yesterday’s Enterprise.

When it comes to creative work, you often don’t realize that you’re doing something special until much later on when you have time to breathe and look back. And that was the case with “Yesterday’s Enterprise,” which had one of the most convoluted writing histories of any episode. In this episode of The Ready Room we’re joined by Charlynn Schmiedt, Michael Fisher, and Daniel Proulx to discuss the Enterprise-C’s journey to the future, Guinan’s feels, Tasha 2.0, and the rest of the magic that came together to create one of the all-time fan favorites. We also reveal, for the first time ever, what actually goes on in Cetacean Ops.

In news we look at a brand new collection of scale replicas of Star Trek ships from Eaglemoss, take a walk down memory lane with Star Trek: The Original Topps Trading Cards Book, uncork some Star Trek wine from Vinport, and burn our retinae by looking at deleted scenes from “Evolution.” Plus, we put out a call for the next great card battle game.
