In this episode, Qstorm goes rogue and suggests that Star Trek III: The Search For Spock is actually a better film than the hallowed Star Trek II: Wrath Of Khan! Plus, talk of a Wrath Of Khan PREQUEL (or would it be a Space Seed sequel)?? And Big Sexy is in rare form throughout the proceedings! We also talk about the Star Trek III soundtrack by James Horner.

The Red Shirts Podcast Star Trek Nitpicks

To paraphrase another well-known sci-fi franchise, there's a disturbance in the Federation. Yes, this week, we're going there...an all out discussion of those little things that annoy us about Trek! BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE...it's all in love! Although we analyze our favorite nitpicks, it doesn't deter our fandom! So listen in and see if you agree, disagree, or better yet if you can explain our nitpicks! Let us know if you share a nitpick or if you have one we didn't mention.

Share YOUR nitpicks here!
