Episode 136: The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not for the Lamb’s Cry

Synthaholics Episode 136: Star Trek Discovery The Butcher's Knife Cares Not for the Lamb's Cry

Synthaholics Episode 136: Star Trek Discovery The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not for the Lamb’s Cry

Guy Davis joins David this week for The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not for the Lamb’s Cry. Star Trek Discovery so far has been delivering amazing episodes so far and this week’s episode does not disappoint! Since this is our first time talking with Guy since Discovery has started we get his take on the show so far. We then give our initial spoiler free first reactions to The Butcher’s Knife. Once our initial impressions are out of the way we talk full spoilers and episode synopsis. We both seem to absolutely love Captain Lorca and his methods. This week’s episode also features a listener email. We hope you have a drink capable of knocking out a tardigrade, because it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 134 Star Trek Discovery Context is for Kings

Episode 134: Star Trek Discovery Context is for Kings

Episode 134: Star Trek Discovery Context is for Kings

::Spoilers:: for this week’s episode of Star Trek Discovery Context is for Kings. We enjoyed the The Vulcan Hello and The Battle at the Binary Stars last week, but we LOVED Context is for Kings this week. This episode delivered in just about every way could ask for. The characters are interesting and compelling and clues for this seasons mysteries are scattered about. Captain Lorca is not what he seems to be! This smells like a section 31 ship to us! Gorn skulls, scared Klingons, and experiments gone wrong! What drinks do you think go well with fortune cookies? It’s time for you weekly shot of Star Trek!

Synthaholics Episode 133: Star Trek Discovery Pilot

Synthaholics Episode 133: Star Trek Discovery Pilot

Synthaholics Episode 133: Star Trek Discovery Pilot

On Sunday September 24th 2017 the Star Trek Discovery pilots aired. The new show is finally here! We will be covering both pilot episodes The Vulcan Hello and Battle at the Binary Stars this week on the show.

To start of this episode we give general first impressions before getting heavily into spoilers. There is so much great Star Trek to be found here the show has a lot of promise. Together the episodes are defiantly stronger than they were separately.

We are very much looking forward to the rest of the season. While Discovery is on we will be covering it each week. We hope you enjoy this trek into the first new Star Trek in over a decade! And we hope you will enjoy it through our eyes. Always feel free to email us your thoughts so we can share them on the podcast! What do Kelpains drink i hope it’s strong, it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 132: Assignment Earth?

Episode 132: Assignment Earth?

Synthaholics Episode 132: Assignment Earth?

Do you remember that time Star Trek did a backdoor pilot back in the second season? David didn’t until Aaron suggested that we watch the original series episode Assignment Earth.

This episode centers around this cat named Isis and her human secret agent Gary Seven. The Enterprise some how intercepts their transporter beam while for some strange reason being on a mission to observe 1968. Assignment Earth is Star Trek the animated series level of strange! We are thankful there was a letter writing campaign to bring Star Trek back for a third season otherwise this could of been the series finale of the Original Series!

This episode has some very fascinating historical events happen close to the episodes release that were hinted at within the episode. Also is Gary Seven a Time Lord? If not then where did he get that Sonic Screwdriver? Pour yourself an extra strong drink it’s about to get weird on your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 131: The Klingon Pop Warrior takes us Once More Unto the Breach

Episode 131: The Klingon Pop Warrior takes us Once More Unto the Breach

Episode 131: The Klingon Pop Warrior takes us Once More Unto the Breach

This week on Synthaholics Jen The Klingon Pop Warrior takes us Once More Unto the Breach! Jenbom our guest this week is the Klingon Pop Warrior.

We ask her to tell her story to how she got into singing songs in Klingon. Jen also wanted to talk about the amazing Star Trek Deep Space Nine episode Once More Unto the Breach. Jen lets us know that even though this in an amazing episode there was only one real Klingon word in the whole episode.

Once we recap the episode we talk more about Klingon. DuoLingo is adding Klingon to their app this month so we can all start learning Klingon. We also get Jen’s take on the Star Trek Discovery Klingons. Grab your favorite vintage of Bloodwine or a good cold glass of raktajino it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Please take a look at Jen’s website and follow her on Facebook and Twitter!

Episode 130: Kipleigh Brown and James Kerwin return!

Episode 130: Kipleigh Brown and James Kerwin return!

Episode 130: Kipleigh Brown and James Kerwin return!

This week on Synthaholics guests Kipleigh Brown and James Kerwin return to talk Star Trek Continues. James Kerin directed and wrote the teleplay for the recent Star Trek Continues episode “Embracing the Winds”. Kipleigh Brown plays Smith on Star Trek Continues and she wrote the teleplay for the most recent episode “What Ships Are For”. We found out the cast and crew recently had screenings of “What Ships Are For” at ILM and and Pixar so we got to hear about that. Writing becomes a major topic of the episode and this gets us sidetracked into discussing recent science fiction film! It was an absolute pleasure having Kipleigh and James join us this week, so we hope you enjoy this extra special shot of Star Trek!

Episode 129: Message in a Bottle

Synthaholics Episode 129: Message in a Bottle

Synthaholics Episode 129: Message in a Bottle

Have you ever sent a Message in a Bottle? Well it doesn’t really seem Voyager really did on this episode with the same name. It seemed like it was maybe more like message in a doctor? That’s not the only part of the episode that doesn’t make sense.

But before we try to crawl backwards into the bottle, for news we talk a little about the Orville because I don’t think it is something we have really touched on. Black Mirror’s new season is mentioned because they have one episode for the upcoming season that is visually similar to Star Trek.

Star Trek Voyager’s Message in a Bottle guest stars Andy Dick as the EMH II. There is some great back and forth between Robert Picardo and Andy Dick that are some of the best parts of the episode. The B plot just feels kind of like a waste of time. Also why does sending a file cause the file to be lost? All this and more this week on Synthaholics your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Synthaholics Episode 128: Explorers with Andrew Dumais

Episode 128: Explorers with Andrew Dumais

Synthaholics Episode 128:  Explorers with Andrew Dumais

This week we talk the Deep Space Nine episode Explorers with Andrew Dumais. Andrew has been a past guest on the show. He was on our episode about The Doctors and our Religion and Star Trek episode. We hope you enjoyed the Ben and Jake Sisko bit Aaron and David did back on our episode about the Jem’Hadar because that bit is back in a big way!

Before we get into the episode we talk some Star Trek news mostly dealing with Star Trek Discovery’s Jason Isaacs. Over the past week or so he has made a wave in the Star Trek community with some of his fascinating comments.

This episode heavily features the father and son dynamic so after the main episode discussion Aaron poses the question to Andrew and David if they had any memorable times with their fathers. Once we answer we turn the question to Aaron and his is probably one of the more interesting stories that we get to hear. Where’s the rum you are gonna need it on this solar sail ship because it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!
