With this week's guests having re-scheduled and no major topics to talk about, Henry brings up a story he read at the start of the week: Star Trek Beyond is struggling to make its box office expectations. Perfect timing as Henry found some audio interviews he recorded a few weeks ago at the Star Trek Beyond World Premiere at San Diego Comic Con. He plays back quick interviews with Chris Pine & Karl Urban, then a spoilery interview with director Justin Lin. Henry warps up the episode with details on the second annual FlyCo Mini Indie Con at Flying Colors Comics & Other Cool Stuff.
