Damn it, Jim! I'm a Podcaster, not a Bricklayer!

Loved this episode! These Star Trek Power Records are fantastic! I can visualize these being animated like Star Trek: The Animated Series!

Is the guy doing Bones (along with southern accent) the same guy who did the Six Million Dollar Man?

Looking forward to more Star Trek!

Hi Rob and Chris,

I just listened to the latest Power Records podcast all about Star Trek and I know I sound like a broken power record, but I must say it was another great show.

I’ve been a Star Trek fan longer than I can remember.  Seriously, I can’t remember a time in my childhood that I wasn’t already a Star Trek fan.

I owned many of these records as a kid, but haven’t listened to them since then and must say that I was pleasantly surprised about how well the stories hold up.  As you both said, these were great little adventures that fit perfectly into the world of Star Trek.

Thanks Chris for bringing up the Atlantis / Aquaman connected at the end.  When I heard that revelation in the episode, I was 100% certain that was why Rob chose that episode and was surprised when you mentioned it and Rob said he hadn’t really given it any thought.

I sincerely appreciated your tribute to Leonard Nimoy at the end.  I couldn’t agree more with everything you said about him.  A true gentlemen.

I’ll chime in with a little positive support for William Shatner.  I know he has a certain reputation, but sometimes I think you get back from William Shatner what you bring to him.  I have met him on a handful of occasions at conventions as well as at the fan meet and greet following his one man show Shatner’s World and every interaction I’ve had with him has been positive.

He always makes eye contact.  He always smiles.  He always says a few words.  And he always says thank you at the end.  No, he doesn’t socialize, but I’ve never found him to be mean or cold or aloof.

And seeing him and Leonard Nimoy together on a couple of occasions was a delight.  The two were such close friends they would finish each other’s sentences.  One of our greatest possessions is a photo of the two of us with both William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy.  I’ll send it to you and you are welcome to share it if you want.  I don’t want to presume that you would want it on the site.

Take care guys and thanks for another fun show!

This episode takes me back. I was given the version of the "Time Stealers" record with the Motion Picture photo cover from my late comic collecting uncle, who admitted that he originally ordered it for himself from Westfield Comics because he expected it to have the Neal Adams cover (because the original Adams cover was featured in the solicitation). Regardless, I enjoyed it immensely. A few years later I found the Neal Adams cover version of this record at a thrift shoppe and, after making a color Xerox of the cover for myself, sent it to my uncle as a gift. He was very happy to have it, despite the tatters. It is now part of the treasured comics collection my uncle left for me when he died the other year.

Not much else to say beyond what you gentlemen covered... except, to my ears, I believe the same actor voiced both Kirk and Spock, and he was the same actor who voiced Metamorpho (Me-ta-mor-pho!) in the "Fumo the Fire Giant" recording. I wonder if there is a way to find out for sure...
