Connor Trinneer and Dominic Keating, stars of Star Trek: Enterprise, recently wrapped their podcast, The Shuttlepod Show in December 2023, which focused on the stars of the franchise, behind-the-scenes of the various series, and anything and everything about Star Trek. Even with the ending of The Shuttlepod Show, though, the two former Trek cast members, hadn't closed the door on a return, with Keating saying at the Star Trek: Enterprise at the ST-SF convention in San Francisco that they were talking about bringing it back. Now, that has happened as the two friends have gone in a different yet familiar direction, launching The D-Con Chamber.

Viewers of Enterprise will recognize the terminology as, many times, crew members who left the ship during the series had to go through the decon chamber upon their return. This involved stripping down to their underwear and using copious amounts of gel that the crew, which usually involved two members of the opposite sex needing to be rubbed.

The new podcast of Trinneer's and Keating's, while still related to Star Trek, focuses more on the life-changing effect the series and the franchise has had on people's lives throughout the years. According to a notification sent by the Voyager Documentary, the podcast will "explore and celebrate the lives that the Star Trek universe has forever changed." While guests will still include Star Trek cast members, also included will be celebrities, astronauts, and scientists who have all been affected by Trek.

The podcast aired its first episode on May 19th with William Shatner as its guest, and new episodes will air weekly.
