Episode 277: Lower Decks Second Contact

Star Trek Lower Decks the latest CBS All Access Star Trek Show and the Synthaholics are here to cover it. The first episode of Lower Decks is titled “Second Contact”. The U.S.S. Cerritos is making second contact and is setting up its communication array so that they can communicate with the rest of the federation. This episode introduces us to our lower decks crew, Brad Boimler, D’Vana Tendi, Beckett Mariner, and Sam Rutherford. Aaron and I were delighted by this first entry into this brand new Star Trek show and we can’t wait to see what future episodes of Lower Decks will bring us.

Book Club Episode 10: Dune Part 10

This week Duncan Idaho is such a loud drunk that he wakes up Lady Jessica while she is sleeping from down the hall. Duncan has been enjoying the spice beer and hanging with the ladys a little too much. Lady Jessica then has an intense talk with Thufir and debates whether to not tell him she is pregnant with the Duke’s daughter. Duke Leto finds a corpse down the hall and then the almost corpse of the nearly deceased Shadout Mapes. He then discovers that his dentist Doctor Yueh seems to have been sabotaging the generator room. Doctor Yueh gives him some anti speed and replaces his tooth so that he can use it to assassinate Baron Vladimir Harkonnen. Pour yourself a cold beverage and listen to more Expanse. Enjoy together responsibly!
