MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION
Scott Johnson from ExtraLife (www.myextralife.com) joins the Major Spoilers Crew this week to discuss all things Star Trek. In light of the upcoming movie franchise reboot, and Nerdtacular III, the panel waxes poetically about the best and the worst Star Trek has to offer, while Stephen loses all Trek-cred he has by saying he liked Enterprise over all the other series. It only gets better from there, in this lively discussion.
