Ben is joined by sci-fi novelist and podcaster Adam David Collings to talk about the pilot episode of THE STARLOST, “Voyage of Discovery” by Cordwainer Bird (which was intended to be called “Pheonix Without Ashes” by Harlan Ellison).
Along the way, they chat about Robert Heinlein’s book UNIVERSE, Red Dwarf, some Star Trek, and a little Doctor Who.
This episode’s primary Big Idea is generation ships, but they also get into the differences between Ellison’s original script and the rewritten script.
