For our very special 100th Podcast, Liam and Matt explore Star Trek creator, Gene Roddenberry’s various attempts to move away from Starfleet during the 1970s with four sadly unsuccessful Pilot episodes:

Genesis II (1973)

The Questor Tapes (1974)

Planet Earth (1974)

Spectre (1977)

We review the shows and decide whether we would have given the greenlight for a series for each in turn if we’d been the studio execs back in the day while also attempting to answer whether any of these concepts could have become as culturally significant as Trek itself.
