Positively Trek 119: Captain on the Bridge
Our Favorite Starship Bridges with Special Guest Katie Nickolaou!

In every Star Trek series set aboard a starship, much of each episode takes place on the main bridge. A place for action, character development, plot advancement, exposition, and more; the bridge is where our heroes spend a huge amount of time. With all that in mind, a great deal of thought and care must go into designing the centerpiece of a new Star Trek show or film. So, what are our opinions of how well the various bridges succeed?

In this episode of Positively Trek, hosts Bruce and Dan are joined once again by Katie Nickolaou to judge the various bridges in Star Trek! We each have our favorites, but we also all have strong opinions on what makes a good bridge and which ones succeeded (and failed)!

In the news, we talk about the announcement of a new Star Trek: Picard novel by Una McCormack, the 2021 Scribe Award-winning novel by John Jackson Miller, a possible hint about when we might see Star Trek: Discovery’s fourth season, and a very odd new gig for William Shatner on Russian state-run television?!?
