About Ship-Talking

Ship-Talking creates podcasts that explore the ships of the Star Trek franchise. Episodes feature guests who have worked on various Trek films and series, including Rick Sternbach, Doug Drexler, Dr. Erin Macdonald, Robert Duncan McNeill, Andrew Probert, and many others.

Discussions with guests are less interview-based and lean more towards a conversation among a group of pals sitting around a table in Ten Forward. New, ~30-minute episodes premiere weekly and explore ship design, inspiration, behind-the-scenes info, and other topics rarely shown or discussed on-screen. Head to www.shiptalkingpod.com for direct links to the podcast's episodes for each of the major pod streaming platforms, or search "ship talking pod" wherever you get your pods.
