Authors of ship narrative and Devs on Star Trek Online Thomas Marrone and Jeremy Randall stop by this week's episode for a bit of sh*p-talking. They chat about writing ship lore, using story to inspire ship visuals, filling in blanks of what happened off-screen to ships, naming ship classes, creating/ documenting tech specs, and more. An expanded chat with Thomas and Jeremy is exclusively available to our patrons at or above the Constitution-class tier on Patreon. We also discuss your answers to this week's Community Q, share a new question, and the latest All Hands on Deck Drill has two Trek ships go head-to-head. Hailing frequencies are always open at www.shiptalkingpod.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
