155: If We Can Dream It
First Contact Retrospective.

In 1996, Star Trek was celebrating its 30th anniversary, and the biggest event of that year was the release of First Contact. Through the big screen success of Star Trek Generations, the cast of The Next Generation proved it could carry a blockbuster movie. A sequel was guaranteed. With a brand new Enterprise, new uniforms, a bigger budget, and the Borg, anticipation for First Contact was at fever pitch.

In this episode of Earl Grey, new hosts Amy Nelson, Richard Marquez, and Lee Hutchison go back in time to 1996 to remember their experiences of the build up toFirst Contact, and how they felt when they came out of the cinema screens. Then they return to 2016 to examine the legacy and impact of this film that garnered universal praise from fans and critics, earned an Oscar nomination, landed in the box office top ten for 1996, and was the highest grossing Star Trek movie until 2009.

136: Captain Alan Ruck
First Time Generations.

After seven years on television, Star Trek: The Next Generation launched a second Trek movie franchise with the inaugural TNG movie, Star Trek: Generations. Star Trek fans, both Original Series and Next Gen-ers, have long discussed their feelings about the eagerly-awaited meeting between Captains Kirk and Picard, Data's emotions, the destruction of the NCC-1701-D, and the death of Kirk. However, one Trek fan just watched the movie last week - Andi VanderKolk, better known as FirstTimeTrekker.

Andi joins the Earl Grey crew and shares her thoughts about Captain Alan Ruck...er, John Harriman of the Enterprise-B, how Dr. Tolian Soran was able to speak great lines while sporting a great coat, and how the star of the entire movie is Spot the Cat. The crew talks the expectations of the first TNG movie, the role of Captain James T. Kirk, and how the story could have been improved. Join Earl Grey as they talk the high and low parts of Star Trek: Generations.

Earl Grey 68: Secret Shipyards Are All The Rage

Nemesis.

Star Trek Nemesis is generally considered one of the weaker entries of The Next Generation feature films, as well as the entire Star Trek movie franchise. The story mixed together action sequences, the idea of "dark mirrors" for Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Lt. Cmdr. Data, and attempted to send off the Enterprise-Echaracters to their next stage of life (or death, in the case of one android). Daniel, Darren, and Phillip examine the multiple aspects that did not work in the film, what parts they enjoyed, and how this movie predicted the look and feel of J.J. Abrams' Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek into Darkness. Pour a glass of Romulan Ale or Chateau Picard, and join Earl Grey for Next Gen's final journey.

Earl Grey 55: The Badmiral and the Fountain of Youth
Insurrection.

Star Trek: Insurrection was released on December 11, 1998, and reactions from fans of The Next Generation have been divided ever since. The third movie in the TNG franchise, following the popular Star Trek: First Contact, has been described as feeling like an authentic episode from the television series, while other fans view it as one of the least successful films in all of the Star Trek film franchise.

In this episode of Earl Grey, Phillip, Darren, and Daniel tackle the new technologies introduced in the film, the morality-play plot, and what their favorite crew should have been up to during the Dominion War. We also discuss whether the Troi/Riker relationship should have been advanced, if it made sense to have Worf in this outing, and why the Ba'ku seem to look exactly like humans. Feel the clock go backward, break out the mambo music, and come aboard the captain's yacht for the Earl Grey movie review of Star Trek: Insurrection.
