Tribbles in Ecstasy Take 232: A Rossi Reaction

We are joined by Dave Rossi (0:55:37) who was a Production Associate for Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: Insurrection and Star Trek: Nemesis, plus a Associate Producer for Star Trek: Enterprise.

We enjoy geeking out with Mr Rossi about his thoughts on the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery (1:23:19), Star Trek Beyond (1:55:28) and Star Trek Timelines (0:53:55).

Before we are joined by Dave Rossi, we start the show going through all of this week’s news from Star Trek Online and later in the show we discuss Fan Productions (2:27:39), Feedback (2:32:49) and more!


Community Questions:

  1. Do you have Kids? – What Star trek things are you doing with them?
  2. What do you think of the T6 Connie finally seeing the light of day and what do you think about it being behind a R&D Pack?
  3. Sci-Fi fans, Do you know what the “Shivering Isles Mantra” is a reference is to?: “Sunseahl is always right, I will listen to Sunseahl, I will not ignore Sunseahl’s recommendations, Sunseahl is god… And, if this is ever disobeyed, Sunseahl will personally airlock you!”
