Titan merchandise blurbs:

Titan Entertainment present the debut 3” TITAN vinyl figure for Michael Burnham, the risk-taking protagonist of Star Trek: Discovery!

Launched exclusively at Star Trek Las Vegas 2018, this figure is available in very limited numbers and sold individually in printed-box packaging.

Come on a voyage to the stars with this intricate 4.5” TITAN vinyl reconstruction of Captain Gabriel Lorca’s ship, the USS Discovery - the eponymous lead starship from Star Trek: Discovery!

Launched exclusively at Star Trek Las Vegas 2018, this figure is available in very limited numbers and sold individually in window-boxed packaging.

Sarah (from the Trekkie Girls) attended Star Trek Las Vegas 2018 convention, and was able to source a copy each for me, which I really appreciate to this day!
Whilst I was able to purchase an extra set of figures from Forbidden Planet (while they were available) so that we could give it away to one of you!!!

If you're interested in winning, enter below... and we wish you good luck!!!

Podcast Schedule 2020


Hi guys, a new year means a new Podcast Schedule!
Once again, this is an incomplete schedule...so just like previous years "this schedule (at the time that I write this) is subject to change". Partly, because we've learnt (the hard way) that things don't tend to go the way we plan.

It's also because this year's schedule is going to work out the same way as the last couple of years schedule (See our Star Trek 'odds and ends' episode for more information). As once again we've mutually decided that the workload (and the schedule) should be divided up a little bit more evenly.

Meaning that this year will be divided into two different sections, with each section managed by a different member of the team:
Simon:- 1st January 2020-30th July 2020
Jamie:- 1st September-31st December 2020
This still means that, we also have an awful lot of different options (and ideas) available to us. Which we'll decide on at the time (when needed!).
Hopefully making 2020's schedule an interesting year to be a follower of The Engage Podcast, we hope that you enjoy what we've got in store for you this year... not that even I know what's going to happen in the second half of the year!!!
