SPOILER ALERT! Star Trek Beyond is WORTH YOUR TIME! The End. I’m kidding… Of course there’s more, a whole lot more! Jen and Angela discussed the Star Trek Beyond plot, the treatment of its female characters—by far the most feminist story in the franchise—the acting, writing, new characters…the WHOLE shebang. What did you think of the movie? In two weeks, we’ll cover Stranger Things and Suicide Squad!

With no new Who on on the immediate horizon until Christmastime, KC and I have turned our attention to the Big Finish audio dramas and the return of David Tennant and Catherine Tate (as Ten and Donna, of course) to The Tenth Doctor Adventures, Vol 1

This set encompasses three stores: Technophobia, Time Reaver, and Death and the Queen.  We share our thoughts on the stories, try to place them chronologically (whatever that means) in Series 4, and gush about The DoctorDonna.  As usual, with Your Moment of Who, this is a reaction-cast, and not an in-depth analysis of these stories.

02:27 - Technophobia
07:25 - Time Reaver
13:11 - Death and the Queen
17:44 - Overall impressions & behind the scenes tidbits
21:45 - Opinions on the state of Who on TV
23:04 - Should we cover more audio productions?
28:40 - Coming up on Anomaly Supplemental

Well it’s kind of crazy how long it’s taken me to record all five seasons of Babylon 5! I was just sitting here thinking about how much in my life has changed since I started actually. It’s been really cool getting to watch through this and getting to see people responding to it. It’s been cool experiencing something new and a sci-fi show I really had no idea about before I started.

I’ll be completely honest this show doesn’t really feel like it’s ‘mine’ in the same way I feel like other shows feel totally ‘me’, but I respect this show a LOT. I respect that the characters seemed like they were always changing and developing, that they wanted to explore interesting stories and situations and that they never seem to stagnate the way some shows really can. I am definitely glad I watched it and even more glad that there were so many of you taking the journey with me.

I hope you enjoy this last installment!
