Episode 300: A New Direction 

Welcome to the 300th episode of Synthholics. Aaron and David celebrate this milestone by talking about life, the universe, and everything. This week we look back over almost six years and 300 episodes of Synthaholics. As part of this discussion we explain our current feelings about Star Trek as it currently exists and mention some of our goals for the podcast once we come back from our break. Think of this time as the end of a season and we’ll be back for the next season. We have a listener email this week with some suggestions for the show when we come back. Please feel free to email us during the break and if we have enough emails we could devote an entire episode to reading emails from you the listeners. We will also be around on social media so feel free to message us on Twitter or Facebook and please join the group on Facebook. David is looking into steaming games over Twitch, find the link below. We will see you on Twitch and in episode 301.

Episode 299: Tenet

Episode 299: Tenet

Welcome to Synthaholics your weekly Inverted Podcast. Aaron and David talk about the most recent mind bending Christopher Nolan film Tenet. This is likely the best movie of 2020 seeing as not much got to come out in 2020. Tenet is a solid movie though we did have some questions about how things panned out in the film. We also have a listener email and do talk a little bit about the future of the podcast after our episode 300 break. So stay tuned for that email and news. Grab yourself a stiff drink, we hope you enjoy your weekly shot of mind bending, sci-fi action discussion.

Episode 298: Discovery Season 3 with Captain Foley of Trekyards

Aaron and David welcome Captain Foley of Trekyards to the show this week. This is our yearly tradition to have at least half of Trekyards on a guest to discuss Discovery’s third season as a whole. We go into depth on key ideas of the season like the burn, new characters, and the overall story to measure up the strengths and weaknesses of season three. We also talk about where season 4 could be headed going forward. Stuart Foley brings his wealth of knowledge to the discussion and it is always a pleasure having him join us in our discussions.

Episode 297: Su’Kal, There Is a Tide, & That Hope is You pt 2

Episode 297: Su’Kal, There Is a Tide, & That Hope is You pt 2 

It’s 2021 and we are back to discuss the final three episodes of Star Trek Discovery Season Three, “Su’Kal”, “There is a Tide” and “That Hope is You Part 2”. The season wraps things up in a nice bow so they can have yet another fresh start when season four comes along. But did the season wrap things up in a satisfying thought provoking way? Well I’m sure that is something you have to decide for yourself but we invite you to listen to hear our thoughts on if the ending was a satisfying one or not. We also have an announcement at the top of the episode. Time to pour yourself a cold glass of Ni’Varian Ale, for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 296: Star Trek Discovery “Terra Firma, Part 2”

Episode 296: Star Trek Discovery “Terra Firma, Part 2”

Episode 296: Star Trek Discovery “Terra Firma, Part 2” 

“Terra Firma Part 2” is the tent episode of season three of Star Trek Discovery we finishout out hopefully last episode in the Mirror Universe for the remainder of Star Trek Discovery’s run. We never expected them to go back to the mirror universe this season either. But never say never, right? Georgiou tries to make changes in the Mirror Universe but one person isn’t enough to change the whole tide of the Mirror Universe and Georgiou and Michael end up killing each other. Carl is revealed to be the Guardian of Forever and not a Q even though he gave her a very Q like quest. The Guardian sends Georgiou back to the past of this current time line to star in the Section 31 show that is presumably still happening. Hopefully next episode we will come closer to finding out what caused the burn and what’s up with subspace? Time to pour yourself a cold glass of Ni’Varian Ale, for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 295: Star Trek Discovery “Terra Firma, Part 1”

Episode 295: Star Trek Discovery “Terra Firma, Part 1”

Episode 295: Star Trek Discovery “Terra Firma, Part 1” 

“Terra Firma Part 1” is the ninth episode of season three of Star Trek Discovery and unfortunately the 5th episode of this series mostly set in the Mirror Universe. Aaron and David have a love/hate relationship with this episode. This episode was really solid, it gave us some of that great ensemble cast, and “Terra Firma Part 1” is just so much fun. On the other hand it’s a Mirror Universe episode and it takes us away from the overall plot and it’s a two parter so we have next week’s episode also keeping us away from the burning question “What is the Burn” But boy do we love some Emperor Georgou being a badass. Who is Carl, is he a Q or is he just some new alien native to this new planet? It’s time to pour yourself a cold glass of Ni’Varian Ale, for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Book Club Episode 26: Dune Part 26

Book Club Episode 26: Dune Part 26

Book Club Episode 26: Dune Part 26

Aaron and David discuss the final chapter of Dune. Paul meets with The Emperor and makes a power play to get himself wed to his daughter so he can become the new Emperor. But before he can do that he must have a battle with the Harkonnen Feyd-Rautha to the death.  Even though Paul marries Princess Irulan for possession he promises Chani that Irulan will never know his love and that Chani will always be his special one. Dune is a groundbreaking work of Sci-fi and while star wars for sure borrowed elements there still isn’t anything quite like Dune. Pour yourself a cold beverage and listen to more Dune, enjoy together responsibly!

Episode 294: Star Trek Discovery “The Sanctuary”

Episode 294: Star Trek Discovery “The Sanctuary”

Episode 294: Star Trek Discovery “The Sanctuary”

“The Sanctuary” is the eighth episode of season three of Star Trek Discovery and unfortunately this episode puts the breaks on what the previous two weeks had been building up to. We are happy to see this episode finally see some of the side characters get something to do. It’s just said it’s not really in service to the overall seasonal arc. (as far as we can tell at this point in the season) Hopefully next episode will get us back on track with the seasonal arc and still help us learn more about our characters on the USS Discovery. It’s time to pour yourself a cold glass of Ni’Varian Ale, for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Book Club Episode 25: Dune Part 25

Aaron and David discuss the next two chapters of Dune. Paul, Silgar, and Gurney are about to use atomics on the shield wall so the Fremen can ride worms into the final battle now that the Emperor himself has arrived. The Emperor has the next Leto murdered and Paul’s sister Alia kidnapped. We also see the baron Vladimir Harkonnen basically become a completely different character who loses all his brains and cunning. This happens just in time to have a disastrous run in with a Gom Jabbar. Pour yourself a cold beverage and listen to more Dune, enjoy together responsibly!

Episode 293: Star Trek Discovery “Unification III”

Episode 293:  Star Trek Discovery “Unification III”

Episode 293:  Star Trek Discovery “Unification III”

“Unification III” is the seventh episode of season three of Star Trek Discovery and we found this to be a well done bottle episode. The Vulcan’s and Romulan’s now live on Vulcan and have renamed the planet to Ni’Var. Ni’Var has some information Michael needs to understand the burn. They will not give up the information freely so Michael evokes an ancient Vulcan ritual to try to forcibly recover the information. This episode is a worthy successor to the first two unification episodes seeing Spock’s hard work finally come to fruition. But will Michael burn Spock’s legacy to the ground? Does Michael finally start to feel like a real person? Listen to find out.  It’s time to pour yourself a cold glass of Ni’Varian Ale, for your weekly shot of Star Trek!
