Episode Studies
     Like us on Facebook, where you'll see notifications every time a new study or review is posted on PopApostle!



I will be watching and reading the licensed tie-ins to the newly rebooted Star Trek universe currently in the capable hands of J.J. Abrams and will be presenting my studies relating to each, such as commentary on the science described, sound bits of memorable dialog, screen grabs and my own musings. I'll be presenting them in my estimation of the chronological order each story takes place.

 

Although there are no television "episodes" (at least not yet) in the rebooted Star Trek canon, I am continuing to use the term "episode" as I have elsewhere on PopApostle, as a separable piece in the continuous narrative of a larger story.
