Did you know Data has a mom? Yeah, neither did Data. She is aboard the Enterprise, looking to share with him and make up for lost time. But the two of them have more in common than even she realizes. Also, a planet is going to blow up or stop spinning or something. Truth and truths in this week’s show, when we put Inheritance in the Mission Log.

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!
Just a quick note to let you all know that Mission Log will be on a short hiatus for the first week of July. We will return on July 13 with double the android danger in the two-parter “Descent” and “Descent Part II.” Thank you for listening – see you in a week!17 Comments
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!
At the 2016 Star Trek convention in Las Vegas, we were proud to take to the Roddenberry Interactive Stage to present the Podcast Summit with some of our favorite friends and colleagues. The discussion ranged from distinguishing ourselves in the crowded field of Trek podcasting, the marker of success to the types of audience feedback we get. You can listen to the audio-only podcast courtesy of TrekGeeks or watch the video below from our friends at Priority One.
Like Picard learning about Darmok, Mission Log listeners may need to check in from time to time to figure out what their hosts are saying.
