Ratchet Retrocast Ep 10Space… the final leap. This week we land in a Jefferies tube and we chat about Star Trek: The Original Series. Trek gave us everything from the first interracial kiss to the goatee-d evil alternate crew. TOS is arguably the most important sci-fi show ever made and we talk about the impact on every piece of pop-culture that has followed it. Of course, we can’t talk about Trek without talking about the Wars/Trek turf rivalry, the universe’s greatest bromance, and KHAAAN! We of course have our regular Achievement Unlocked and for our Clockwork Quarter Hour, we talk with photographer Matthew Nicholson of Dim Horizon Studio. Beam us up!
