Season 8

"Star Trek III: The Search for Spock" (Part 1)Just in time for the 40th Anniversary of "Star Trek III: The Search for Spock," Scott & Steve are stealing "Enterprise Incidents" for a special 2-part deep dive into this underrated "Star Trek" classic. Soon after the U.S.S. Enterprise returns to earth bruised and battered after Captain Spock died saving the ship during the battle in the Mutara Nebula, Admiral James T. Kirk learns that his beloved starship is going to be decommissioned. Plus, all is not well with his friend, Dr. Leonard McCoy, who has not been acting like himself. That's when he receives a visit from Spock's father, Sarek, who questions why he left Spock's body behind on the Genesis planet. It turns out that Spock's essence had been merged with McCoy's, and now that both are in danger, unless Kirk can take matters into his own hands and bring them both to Vulcan. Originally released on June 1, 1984, "Star Trek III" has always been seen as a solid, but somewhat unspectacular installment of the "Genesis Trilogy," even though it featured the directorial debut of none other than Leonard Nimoy. But upon closer inspection, "The Search for Spock" is a better movie than it was ever given credit for, and it features stellar performances from William Shatner, DeForest Kelley and Christopher Lloyd as Klingon Commander Kruge.

Scott and Steve are thrilled to be joined for this conversation by Steve's partner from The Cine-Files and Star Trek fanatic: John Rocha.
