Episode 5: The Final Frontier (w/ Greg Lock)

January 11, 2017

Beam in for our latest, positively delicious episode as the Spocklight crew take on God!

Join us as Liam discovers a new bible in the form of William Shatner’s very own, 'Captain's Log’ and laments the loss of a murderous unicorn, Paul argues that the DVD menus have better VFX than the movie and cooks up an old McCoy family recipe - Tennessee smoked baked beans, Matt wishes for a band called 'God and the Rock Men' and finally has a 20-year old grudge exorcised through some Sybok inspired spiritual healing, while special Guest Star and Director of Trek Fan Film, ‘Ambush’, Greg Lock, wonders why Uhura ever agreed to her strip-tease distraction and reveals where the crew go to drop a deuce.

Buckle your cinema mandated seatbelts and prepare to row row row your boat as we journey to ‘The Final Frontier’.

Episode 4: The Voyage Home (w/ Adam Johnston)

December 7, 2016

In our newest episode, The Spocklight crew examine the very 80s ‘Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home’ as Liam reveals his desire for a courtroom based Trek movie and exposes Spock's very questionable tightey whities, Paul attempts to live order a movie-accurate pizza and wonders just how long Gillian has been in charge of the museum tour and Matt calls bullshit on the crew's time travel technique and realises the true villains are the Norwegian whalers.

 We also welcome our first guest star, fellow Podcaster and Composer of our theme tune, Adam Johnston, who recalls his Grandparent’s VHS collection and marvels at the slap bass musical stylings of 1980s San Fran.

 All that and much more.


Episode 3: The Search for Spock

November 9, 2016

Battle lines are drawn in our most divisive episode yet as the 'Spocklight' crew join the surprisingly short Search for Spock.

Liam recalls his childhood 'Christopher Lloyd blindness' and reveals one of his favourite movie one-liners...Paul marvels at the easiest Starship heist in history and laments Chekov's terrible pink Pilgrim outfit...and Matt laughs at Kirk's sudden change of heart whilst calling the film the 'Quantum of Solace' of the franchise thus far.

Hear our Crew's adventure continue in the 3rd episode of 'Spocklight'. All that they've loved, all that they've fought for, all that they've stood for, will now be put to the test but they all love a bit of explodey ol' Enterprise. 



Episode 2: The Wrath of Khan

October 12, 2016

Beam aboard the good ship Spocklight as our crew discuss the cinematic equivalent of Hornblower in Space, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

In this episode - Liam debates the legitimacy of Ricardo Montalban's magnificent (and physics defying) chest, Paul praises the genre-heavy cinematic year of 1982 and admits to a certain boyhood crush on one of the crew members of the Enterprise, and Matt questions the necessary levels of realism behind the Kobayashi Maru test and compares Khan's followers to the Lost Boys.


All that and more as the boys get into the groove of their 13 film mission. 


Episode 1: The Motion Picture

September 3, 2016

Join your crew, Liam Dempsey, Paul Willson, Matt Brothers and Ship Mascot, Aristotle, the Axolotl, on their continuing mission to answer the question: Can someone with no real knowledge of trek become a fan with just the movies to learn from?

First up, we beam back to 1979 for the film that re-started it all, 'Star Trek: The Motion Picture', there is no comparison!
