That’s right, our journey through every non-DS9 Ferengi episode in Trek begins here, coincidentally, with the first Ferengi episode! Did we say “first”? We meant WORST! Well actually we meant both.

2020 was a lot of things, but if there’s one thing it’ll be remembered as, it’s that it’s the year of 3 Star Trek shows. It was just too significant for the RTW boys to not share their thoughts with listeners, so they geared up to have a brief look down memory lane about the Year in Trek of 2020, and the year in general. What they got instead of ov…
