Description

For some reason, Star trek actors have felt the need to record albums both during and after their tenure on the series. With the help of JD Ryznar from sister podcast Beyond Yacht Rock, Mike, Kim and Matt “Stompie” Thompson play Star Trek Idol with these celestial crooners. Leonard Nimoy, Grace Lee Whitney, Tim Russ, Brett Spiner, Chase Masterson, Avery Brooks and, of course, William Shatner all get sampled, then roasted. But what JD thinks about the theme from Star Trek: Enterprise may SHOCK YOU!
