Emmy-award winning Trek VFX legend Rob Bonchune makes his Ship-Talking Pod debut in an epic chat with Brandon and James that was so long, we're splitting it over this and the next episode. While Rob is most known for his CGI/VFX ship work on DS9, Voyager & Enterprise, he is still creating amazing ship renders today that are curated worldwide. Part 1 of the expanded chat with Rob is exclusively available to our patrons at or above the Constitution-class tier on Patreon. Your answers to this week's Community Q are also discussed before a new one is announced, and this week's All Hands on Deck Drill has two Trek ships go head-to-head. Hailing frequencies are always open at www.shiptalkingpod.com or email email@example.com.
