Episode 197: Interstellar

Episode 197: Interstellar

On the last week before Discovery season two starts we thought we’d cover Interstellar one of our favorite modern sci-fi films. Before we get into Interstellar we do have some Star Trek news.

Star Trek 4 seems to be on hold for an indeterminate amount of time with the director now signed to work on the Game of Thrones prequel show. We also got news that more Short Treks are expected to be coming and some details on the Picard show.

Beware if you have not seen Interstellar we do go full spoiler on the movie. Though if you have listened to us for any amount of time you know we go full spoilers when discussing movies. We really enjoy Interstellar for its use of black holes and time dilation to tell an engaging story. We hope you enjoy your weekly shot of Science Fiction and Michael Caine impersonations!

Episode 196: Tsunkatse

Episode 196: Tsunkatse

Episode 196: Tsunkatse

Happy New Year! We are back this week we have a lot to talk about. We have the newest Short Trek The Escape Artist, a listener request the Voyager episode Tsunkatse, and a listener email!

Aaron and Holly really seemed to enjoy The Escape Artist but David was excited for it but ultimately let down by the short. We all enjoyed Tsunkatse but we failed to make an Rock impressions. The Rock was not the only notable guest star, this episode also features Jeffrey Combs and J. G. Hertzler who both appear in Deep Space Nine and in Enterprise. This was a fun episode and there is just one more podcast episode before we start podcasting on Star Trek Discovery! Raid your left over New Years Eve Liquor stash it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek.

Episode 195: Aquaman and a Doomsday Christmas

Episode 195: Aquaman and a Doomsday Christmas

This week Aaron’s favorite superhero, Aquaman, made his movie debut! So this week we had to talk about Aquaman. The episode ending up being on the short side so we thought we would include with it an old christmas episode of Synthahoolics that we lovingly called A Doomsday Christmas. Our thoughts on Aquaman do contain spoilers so if you are sensitive to spoilers please wait until after you have seen Aquaman before giving this episode a listen. We hope you all have a great Holiday season as the year closes out. We thank you for listening. Grab your favorite holiday drink it’s time for your weekly shot of the Synthaholics!

Episode 194: Spotting Dax III – Rules of Acquisition

It’s time for another episode of Spotting Dax! This week Aaron, Holly and David talk about the Star Trek Deep Space Nine season two episode Rules of Acquisition. Now we do hear you saying well isn’t this a Ferengi heavy episode?

You would be correct this is a Ferengi episode but, Dax is a way more interesting character and shows more character development in this episode as a side character then she did for her last two episodes. Just minutes into watching Rules of Acquisition we knew this was going to be a heavy episode. The episode opens with Dax playing Tango with a group of Ferengi and they discus Ferengi culture and the way women are treated in their culture. So once we finish the recap we have quite the discussion.

Pour yourself a glass of tulaberry wine it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 193: Jetrel

Episode 193: Jetrel

Episode 193: Jetrel

It’s been a while since we have discussed a Voyager episode so this week Holly, Aaron, and David talk the Star Trek Voyager episode Jetrel. But first we have some news. Aaron discovered on his YouTube feed that he started seeing new videos from the Axanar channel so it seems like that is back in production. This week the third Short Trek the Brightest Star was released and Holly and Aaron caught up on the paste episodes so we discuss our thoughts on Calypso and The Brightest Star.

Jetrel is a Voyager season one episode that centers on Neelix of all people. But this is actually a very solid episode with strong calls to World War II and Robert Oppenheimer. Jetrel is basically Oppenheimer and he developed a weapon of mass destruction that was used on the Talaxians. The episode is ultimately a message about forgiveness and Is really quite well done. Pour yourself a very strong drink, it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 192: Realm of Fear

Episode 192: Realm of Fear

Episode 192: Realm of Fear

Arron, Holly, and David are back this week to talk the TNG Episode Realm of Fear! No Star Trek news this week but the next Short Trek will be out before we record next week so we should of that to talk about next week. Realm of Fear is one of the Next Generation Episodes that features Dwight Schultz as Barclay! Barclay is one of our favorite recurring characters in Star Trek, so it’s about time we do an episode that is all about him.

In this episode we learn Barclay has an extreme and possibly irrational fear of being transported. Barclay must overcome his fears to help solve the mystery about what happened to the USS Yosemite. Because this episode focuses on his fear that seems to be on the irrational side we get into a discussion on what some of our irrational fears are! Pour yourself a drink that will help calm your nerves it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 191: The Expanse

Episode 191: The Expanse

Episode 191: The Expanse

Aaron has returned from his Section 31 outing and with all of us together again we discuss the Enterprise season two episode The Expanse. Aaron did gather some news on his away mission. It seems Michael Dorn is interested in joining the Picard series if his part is meaningful. Also the Midnight’s Edge youtube channel did an interview with Wrath of Khan writer/director Nicholas Meyer.

We have decided to tackle the Xindi Enterprise arc starting with this episode to examine is it really as bad or as good as some people remember. Do not fret this hasn’t just become an Enterprise podcast. We will keep our regular seemingly random selection of episodes until season two of Discovery airs. But each time we need to cover Enterprise will just move along the season one episode at a time! Grab your favorite drink to help you thought the Xindi arc it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 190: Annihilation

Episode 190: Annihilation

Episode 190: Annihilation

Aaron is off on an above top secret Section 31 mission so Holly and David use this week to talk about the 2018 Sci-fi Thriller Annihilation. Annihilation stars Natalie Portman and Oscar Isaac in a very thought provoking sci-fi film where the main theme is self destruction. Holly gives us the movie recap this week and we discuss the film what we thought of it and some of our favorite and least favorite things about the film. Unfortunately this week was light on Star Trek news and Holly has yet to see the Short Trek Calypso. Pour yourself your finest mixed drink in honor of all the mixed up life forms in the shimmer, it’s time for your weekly shot of Science Fiction!

Episode 189: Star Trek 2009

Episode 189: Star Trek 2009

Episode 189: Star Trek 2009

Holly is missing but David and Aaron must boldly continue on to discuss the first Star Trek reboot film, Star Trek the Star Trek. Before we get into the main topic this week we discuss the news that Michelle Yeoh may be getting her own Star Trek spin off. Also this week the latest Short Trek is out unfortunately Aaron has not seen it but David has and he gives this thoughts on the second short trek.

It has been a while since we have discussed a Star Trek movie on the podcast and since we have covered both into darkness and Star Trek Beyond, Star Trek 2009 seems like a good choice. While we both enjoyed this film for what it is, Aaron and David are both a little more worried now about the future of Star Trek on TV with Alex Kurtzman at the helm. Pour yourself your favorite 20th century drink it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 188: Spotting Dax II - Invasive Procedures

Episode 188: Spotting Dax II – Invasive Procedures

The Halloween time is over and it has been a while since we’ve Spotted Dax, so this week we are talking Invasive Procedures. This week unfortunately Holly was not able to join us but she emailed us audio of her thoughts for this episode.

This week there wasn’t really anything too newsworthy thought we do discuss our plans for Episode 200 toward the end of the show. So please tune in for that we are wanting listener participation to make episode 200 something very special! The second time Deep Space Nine gives Dax her own episode it is again somewhat underwhelming as it doesn’t get to really show what the character is capable of. We will continue to look forward to when Dax comes into her own. Pour yourself a drink it’s time to be rejoined in your weekly shot of Star Trek!
