Senior Chief USN (Ret) Kenneth Tripp joins the show this week to talk about life in the Navy and whether or not the depiction of military life on Star Trek passes inspection. We also discuss the way Trek leadership styles have changed over the years, how the TOS films brought naval tradition back to the franchise, the extreme broadness of Starfleet’s charter, no Ten Forward on Navy ships, getting a band together, PTSD and counseling services in the real-world armed forces, why bringing families into combat is a no-no, and what Federation citizens really think about Starfleet.
Starfleet officers don’t lie! *wink*
Check out the newest member of the Just Enough Trope family, Sailor Noob!
