Episode 183: The Muse

Episode 183: The Muse

Aaron, Holly, and David are back this week to discuss the Star Trek Deep Space Nine episode The Muse! It’s been a month but we are all back in the recording booth again. Due to technical difficulties our news segment and the beginning of the recap are missing. Luckily the majority of the show is intact and the important philosophical discussions about long life and moderate success vs short life and mind blowing success is all there. This episode surprised us as it was better then we remembered it being. The Muse is Majel Barrett final on screen performance as Lwaxana Troi and it is a very touching one with her side story with Odo. Pour yourself a tall drink it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 182: Ender’s Game

Michael Vine joins Aaron O’Brian and Holly Michelle Vine to discuss the Sci-fi film and novel Ender’s Game! David was at RocCon so Aaron takes the reigns this week. Ender’s Game is the first book in a sci-fi series from the 80’s that was made into movie in 2013. Aaron and Holly break down the movie and discuss the similarities and differences between the book and the film adaptation. Michael chimes in to give his takes on the military aspects of the film. Aaron also brings to light some of the controversy author Orson Scott Card got caught up in that probably ended up making the movie not as successful as it could of been. Pour yourself a drink it’s time for your weekly shot of Science fiction!

Episode 181: In a Mirror, Darkly

Episode 181: In a Mirror, Darkly

Episode 181: In a Mirror, Darkly

Last week Holly had some burning questions about the Tholians, so Aaron and David join Holly and  we take a look at the next time we see the Tholians “In a Mirror, Darkly”! Before we get into the episode Aaron has some news from the Star Trek Discovery cast fresh out of Fan Expo. “In a Mirror, Darkly” is a two part episode in Star Trek Enterprise’s fourth season. In this two parter we find out what happens with the Defiant after it was lost in interphasic space.

Oddly enough it ends up in the mirror universe 100 years in the past. After seeing Star Trek Discovery we all kind of scratch our heads at some of the actions that happen between the characters in this two parter. It seems at this time in the mirror universe everyone’s a little less murdery. Because there are multiple times in these episodes where character fight but they just let the loser live once they are beaten. But all in all we enjoyed “In a Mirror, Darkly”. Pour yourself a Gorn drink it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 180: The Tholian Web

Episode 180: The Tholian Web

Episode 180: The Tholian Web

Aaron, Holly, and David are all together this week to talk about the TOS episode The Tholian Web. But before we get into the episode discussion Aaron has some news about how Star Trek Discovery basically plagiarized the indie video game Tardigrade. The Tholian Web has the unfortunate circumstances of being part of the third season of Star Trek. While neither a great episode or a terrible episode this episode has in a way had greatness thrust upon it. As The Tholian Web directly connects to the Enterprise Mirror Darkly two parter and the Star Trek Discovery mirror universe episodes. Love it or hate it The Tholian Web is a very important episode for Star Trek canon. Grab your liquefied Klingon nerve gas it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 179: Heroes and Demons

Heroes and Demons

Episode 179: Heroes and Demons

As promised last week Aaron and David are back to discuss the Star Trek Voyager episode Heroes and Demons. Before we get into the episode we talk the Star Trek Discovery news that Spock has been cast and the potential names for new Star Trek shows! In Heroes and Demons the Doctor has to bravely go to the Holodeck to find out what happened to Harry, Chakotay, and Tuvok.

Funny thing Aaron and David both remember this episode differently before rewatching. The episode isn’t too much of a thinker because it’s basically Star Trek wanting to do Beowulf. But it is a fun episode seeing the Doctor totally as a fish out of water. Because we wrap up the Heroes and Demons talk early David asks Aaron his thoughts on if there is the potential for a Captain Pike Discovery spin off show. Pour yourself a tankard of mead and grab yourself a side of Elk it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 178: Synthaholics Short

Episode 178: Synthaholics Short

Episode 178: Synthaholics Short

Aaron is on vacation and Holly is away, David is alone but the show must go on! Holly and David recorded some audio before we recorded Episode 169 of the podcast to use on a rainy day. The rainy day has come! To supplement the unused audio David turned to a Facebook live chat to get a few ideas. So before we get to the unused audio David briefly talks about two of the topics mentioned in the chat, why are there no superheroes in Star Trek and my thoughts on the Disney streaming service. Once that’s out of the way Holly asked me some questions that maybe a non trekkie might ask or someone who’s new to Star Trek might ask. Pardon the sound issues as I used my handheld recorder to record the pre and and after show and the day we recorded hope and fear we had some clipping issues so those exist on the audio because we recorded these the same day. When everyone returns we will be talking the Voyager Episode Heroes and Demons!

Episode 177: Be Right Back

Episode 177: Be Right Back

Episode 177: Be Right Back

Holly Michelle is back this week to talk with Aaron and David about the Black Mirror Episode Be Right Back. Now don’t turn to a different podcast just yet! We very specifically picked this episode because if you listened to last week’s episode this episode fits in thematically to the discussion we had last week!

Be Right Back deals with grief and what that does to a person. It also confronts what if our personalities were put into a robot and will that be enough? After the episode recap we talk more about if we would want to live on after death so maybe our families will remember us and what the future may looks like to our descendants. We hope you held on tightly do your drink as we made that hard left turn into Black Mirror! At the top of the show we discuss the news of Patrick Stewart reprising his role as Jean-Luc Picard.

Episode 176: Spotting Dax

Episode 176: Spotting Dax

Who’s a character we haven’t really spent a ton of time talking about? Well that would be Jadzia Dax! We feel like this character was underutilized and so our doing our first Spotting Dax Episode. This week we look briefly at the Star Trek Deep Space Nine pilot Emissary before jumping into the first Dax centric episode called…. you guessed Dax. Not really any news to talk this week but we do discuss what it may be like to live on in another body humanoid or otherwise! I hope you have some slug symbiont juice nearby, it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek.

Episode 175: Time’s Arrow Featuring Jeff Heller

Episode 175: Time’s Arrow Featuring Jeff Heller

Aaron and David welcome Jeff Heller, of Film Dumpster, to the show to discuss the Star Trek TNG two parter Time’s Arrow. Before we get into the episode discussion Jeff talks to us about Film Dumpster and what they do there. San Diego Comic Con was this past week so we talk the trailers for Star Trek Discovery and The Orville season 2.

Jeff is a big fan of time travel so Time’s Arrow was a great episode to talk about. In this episode the crew of the enterprise go back in time to stop these soul sucking aliens and to find out why they found a 500 year old Data head. In this adventure they meet up with Ginun of the past, Jack London, and Mark Twain! Time to make yourself an Old Fashioned it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!
