The Only Star Trek Podcast in Existence. Yep. It's true!* Everybody's got an opinion, sure, but who has the "correct" one? Can you even? Trust us for every correct opinion, and a few wrong ones. From Discovery to Picard to Lower Decks, we're resigned to watching these New Star Trek shows both with and without all the baggage that being a "trekkie" entails. Check out the other Kickers Star Trek podcast, The Rules of Acquisition, about Deep Space Nine, an unsung prequel to modern television. ( ...
 
A podcast where we hope to tackle the large and weighty tomes of great (or not so great) fiction we find pertinent to the modern world – heretofore to be referred to as Hell World. Each season of the podcast will tackle either one large work or one author, dissecting what makes them lasting and important to the modern hellscape. KoE is a group of podcasting sad bastards consisting of Wade Bowen, James Nolen, and Hugh Crawford. For Season 1, we read the entire 600k word 1300pg doorstop by Ala ...

Has Lower Decks pulls off the show everyone thought it should be? What themes is this show pulling off that Trek hasn't dealt with? What can we expect from the next season? What did we hate? Does a Rick and Morty structure work here? What is going on? Status Repot never ended. https://patreon.com/kickersofelves…
 
This DS9 episode could have used a second pass... Glen gives the podcast a second pass and has to mention Kanye, Colm with John Huston, and ... Dune? What starts with a great father/son scene about that time Picard blew up Ben Sisko's wife devolves into mooning over a woman with no personality and a penchant for disappearing. A man reignites a dead…
 
Wade invited a woman named Joanie onto the show and things got weird. Just how many of the jokes on Lower Decks are references to other Trek, and how much does that even matter? Has "Cupid's Errant Arrow" struck? Somebody on this episode is excited for Status Report. References are made.By Kickers of Elves
 
Terok Nor? More like Terok NOIRE! How did Odo go from doing the “Cardassian Neck Trick” in parlours to being a constable on board a Bajoran space station? A flashback episode will answer that. Kira is pretty great. We spend a lot of this episode gushing over how we think Peter Allan Field is the best thing to happen to Star Trek Deep Space Nine. Bu…
 
Another teaser where these jerks don't even talk Star Trek.James and Hugh talk about The Punisher's computer guy, America's Chernobyl, and mostly Richard Power's The Overstory. Want more of these conversations? All the juicy personal drama is over behind the paywall. Check out the Kickers of Elves patreon at https://patreon.com/kickersofelves…
 
Title track! 24th Century Buttslap! Hugh looks back on this episode and provides some Mark Singer Facts at the end. Does this Deep Space Nine episode live up to the hype? Maybe not. There are a lot of rules in this episode, and we get the first mention of the Dominion. Plus a lot of rehashed Shakespeare plot from a play two of us performed way back…
 
More like "Meh, Lora", huh? Wade Looks back on this episode and tries not to embarrass himself. DS9's resident pickup artist, Julian Bashir "falls in love" and has some zero g space sex. We really lay into Julian in this one. We debate some more alien physiology, including turkey wattles and mouth handles in addition to what a lady who grew up flyi…
 
Whilst Julian and Garak flirt at the replimat, a Cardassian boy boards DS9, bites Garak, and sets off a story wherein we actually start to appreciate the character of Julian Bashir. Not nearly as much as we enjoy Garak or Dukat, however. Race issues! Down to a Guess Who's Coming to Dinner scene. This is perhaps the best episode that we've watched s…
 
This week Hugh has some Invasive Procedure facts we left out from the original version. A trill episode! Deep Space Nine has been evacuated, but for completely different reasons than last episode! Jon Glover is a mediocre trill, but he wants a slug of his very own...Dax's slug! He assembles a ragtag team of Western tropes, a confederate and a hooke…
 
Star Trek goes Star Wars? Blasphemy! What is Wade even going on about at the end of this? But this is an action packed episode where Kira and Dax fly a small X-wing sized ship, and encounter a muppet spider - someone found it at a yard sale (really). Lots to unpack in this one. Wade thinks it's a little weak in the scene transitions; James thinks t…
 
Hugh revisits the Circle. Make Bajor Great Again! Part Two of the "Li Nalis Trilogy." But rather than figuring out his character, this episode actually focuses more on Kira being kicked off the station. On Bajor, Bareil shows her a homemade porno from the Prophets, but we prefer the sexual energy between the old people because... more Frank Langell…
 
Season 2! Wait for the end, where James looks back on his former liberal ways. Resetting from season one. More Bajor politics! Kira sets out to save a war hero. Because an earring. Is he a real hero or looking for a way out? Liberty Valance. Kira and O'Brien take a trip to Star Trek's favorite rock quarry. Is Li Nalas something to hang this three e…
 
The end has come! The apocalypse has been averted. Just what happened here? We have a freewheeling discussion with guests Lane Bowen and Courtney Bowen. A very special Status Report. It's the best the podcast has ever been. So listen now while you can. https://patreon.com/kickersofelves https://twitter.com/kickerspodcasts…
 
CALAMITY! In this remix Hugh addresses our first "calamity episode," Big 2016 energy, and how the world we inhabited back then was both similar and very unlike the times we find ourselves in now. That's it! We're at the end... ...of the first season; thank the Prophets. If you believe in that sort of thing. Two pretty good episodes back to back; ar…
 
Picard gets eaten by a flower and talks to some synths. Back in NYC and Jersey, your hosts podcast to keep from going crazy while isolated at home. Heed the Admonition and maintain social distance. What that harkened back to classic Trek did Wade and Glen like in this episode, and what is Sean so mad about? https://patreon.com/kickersofelves https:…
 
On the patreon you'll find extended discussion about the Corona virus situation's impact on our lives. The full talk is half an hour on the American failed state, isolation, parenting, men about to have an emotional breakdown, and how things are for James in Covid-19 ground zero California, and Wade in NYC. https://www.patreon.com/posts/what-differ…
 
No time for ridicule, this is A Very Special Episode! Kira duets with a Cardassian, and three white guys from the bible belt get uncomfortable talking about the Holocaust. From post Cold War relations to The Man in the Glass Booth, Adolf Eichmann, and the Banality of Evil; how can art, and specifically science fiction, best approach some of these p…
 
Does Star Trek: Picard put itself in an impossible situation? How much of past Trek is necessary just to know what's going on, and does the show provide any of what older fans want from their Star Trek? Picard revisits a Borg cube and we're revisited by figures from our past. Does this podcast do the same? Providing what its creators want, but not …
