Our old friend William T. Riker stops by Deep Space Nine during leave, but he’s not acting like himself. In fact, he’s not himself – he’s Thomas Riker, Will’s transporter clone. Thomas is on a mission to steal the Defiant in the name of the Maquis and challenge the Cardassians in the demilitarized zone. Is the mission about policy though, or is it about ego? We put Defiant into this week’s Mission Log.

Since 2012, Mission Log has dug deep into the heart of Star Trek episodes analyzing the story elements for morals, meanings and social relevance.
Starting September 26, Roddenberry Entertainment adds a show that puts fans in the captain’s chair. 48 hours after each new Star Trek: Discovery episode, “Mission Log Live” invites you to join hosts John Champion and Ken Ray to share your thoughts on the new series. What was the episode about? What were the morals, messages and meanings? How does this new series fit in to the Star Trek universe?
This time it’s your chance to dig into the series and discover what’s there!19 Comments
It’s convention season again, and that means John and Ken will be on the road!
If you missed San Diego Comic Con this year, on August 3rd we’ll release the audio from Larry “Dr. Trek” Nemecek’s panel featuring four of your favorite Trek podcasters, and we’ll get the latest news on Roddenberry Podcast Network. Special guests: Kayla Iacovino (TrekMovie/Shuttle Pod podcast), Aaron Harvey (TrekFM/Saturday Morning Trek), Lisa Guetzkow (TrekRadio) and John Champion (Mission Log).
Then if you’re coming to Creation Entertainment’s massive Star Trek convention in Las Vegas, you can find John and Ken at the Roddenberry booth all five days along with the hosts and crew from Priority One and Women at Warp podcasts. On Thursday, August 3, be sure to attend the Mission Log panel “TNG 30: Trek in Transition.” As our coverage of TNG comes to a close, we’ll see how the passing of the torch affects the future of Star Trek’s storytelling. (Audio from this panel will be released as a podcast on Thursday, August 10. Mission Log will resume on August 17 with “Gambit, Part I” and “Gambit, Part II.”)
Those arriving in Vegas early be sure to come to the 8th annual “Landing Party” being held at the Masquerade Bar at the Rio Hotel. There will be trivia, prizes, and mingling with your fellow con attendees. Brought to you this year by Roddenberry Podcast Network, Larry Nemecek’s Portal 47, Bye Bye Robot, TrekRadio, TrekMovie and GeekNation Tours.
Finally – if you are in Southern California, make sure you catch The Improvised Generation, a hilarious and completely original improvised show in the style of Star Trek: The Next Generation. We saw their special performance at Comic Con and can enthusiastically recommend it to Trek fans and comedy lovers throughout the Federation. Performances are every Sunday night in August at 7:30pm at the Impro Studio. Follow @ImprovisedGen, and let us know if we’ll see you there for this away mission!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Your Mission Log crew are taking time this holiday to be with friends and family, and we wish the best of times to everyone of you as well. Your regularly scheduled Mission Log will return next Thursday at 12:00am PST. Remember, no matter where you are, your Star Trek Pals are most of all thankful for you!
