In Trek it Out this week, we’re talking about time travel, isolinear chips, and a couple new events Star Trek fans will get excited about this year. In STO News - and this is big - we’re talking to Jeremy Randall (aka Borticus Cryptic) all about the new skill tree revamp that’s just been announced. Later, Cookie and Elijah are discussing the TNG episode “Haven” in our On Screen segment.
