Star Trek: The Next Generation Free Comic Book Day 2017 (FCBD 2017) "Mirror Broken" Giveaway- CLOSED

Hi guys
Whilst I'm frantically trying to complete my current Blog post, I just wanted to give you our loyal listeners & Blog readers a brief heads up to the podcast's first #Giveaway. Which I'm proud to say I've organised (the first of many)!

It'll be commencing later today (5:00pm GMT) over on Gleam, and you'll be able to enter right up until 4:59pm next Thursday (18th May 2017). The winner will be announced in our next episode!!!

As you maybe able to 'gleam' (sorry for the pun!) from the title of this Blog post, the competition is for the Mirror Universe themed Star Trek: The Next Generation comic. Offered to attendees of the Free Comic Book Day 2017, which occurred last Saturday (6th May 2017).
Written by Scott Tipton and David Tipton, and illustrated by J. K. Woodward.

“Mirror Broken” blurb:

Space... The Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the I.S.S. Enterprise. Its continuing mission: to conquer strange new worlds, to enslave new life and new civilizations... to boldly go where no one has gone before!

Return to the Mirror Universe with the Next Generation crew in a way you've never seen them before in this prequel to the upcoming Star Trek: The Next Generation miniseries, Mirror Broken!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard will stop at nothing to get his hands on the Terran Empire's newest starship, the Enterprise-D. And no one had better stand in his way!

Jamie and I (along with Mum) attended the worldwide event, and were able to source a copy each for the three of us, and an extra one so that we could give it away to one of you. As an extra incentive to enter we'll be throwing in some The Engage Podcast (TEP) goodies for good measure!

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

Join us in #Congratulating our (randomly selected) #FCBD2017 #MirrorBroken #Giveaway Winner Chris J!
We hope you enjoy reading it!!!

This is Simon from The Engage Podcast signing out!

Podcast Schedule 2017

Hi guys, a new year means a new Podcast Schedule!
A year which brings us the 30th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation airing (in November of 1987) and the launch of a new Star Trek series (in May), in the form of Star Trek Discovery!!!
Once again, this is an incomplete just like previous years "this schedule (at the time that I write this) is subject to change". As we've learnt that things don't tend to go the way we plan!

Because of that fact, 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 2017'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!!!
