Episode 124: Enterprise Twilight

Synthaholics Episode 124: Enterprise Twilight

Remember the Star Trek Enterprise Twilight where a space anomaly gave poor archer brain parasites that were out of phase with time?  This basically makes Archer like the guy in the movie Memento! Without being able to form new memories Archer can no longer command the Enterprise and this leads to many disasters. But before we get into the episode we talk about some of the props, costumes and ships that were shown off at San Diego Comic Con. Alas we recorded the episode early so we didn’t get to talk about the new trailer this week. Be sure to listen next week as we will be talking about that new trailer then! Would you give up being able to form new memories if you had T’Pol taking care of you the rest of your life? We ask and answer that question and more on your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Synthaholics Episode 122: The Suffering of O’Brien Part 3

Synthaholics Episode 122: The Suffering of O’Brien Part 3

Synthaholics Episode 122: The Suffering of O’Brien Part 3

It’s that time again it’s time to recount The Suffering of O’Brien Part 3. This week Aaron is back and we are discussing the Star Trek Deep Space Nine episode Whispers. Before we get into the episode we briefly discuss the elevator game and surprisingly it folds right into our topic for today. O’Brien has just returned from an away mission and everyone around his is acting strange. O’Brien believes something has taken over the crew of the station while he was away and he is trying to escape before he falls victim to whatever it is that has happened. But things are not as they seem! Once we recap the episode go into our thoughts on the episode and how this was a kind of missed opportunity to follow up conspiracy. If you like coffee you should prepare your Jamaican blend double strong double sweet and double spiked! It’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Synthaholics Episode 119: Michele Specht and the Offspring

Synthaholics Episode 119: Michele Specht and The Offspring

Aaron, Guy, and David are joined this week by Michele Specht to talk The Offspring. Before we get into the main topic we talk a little bit about Star Trek Continues and how the last three episodes will be debuting at Florida Supercon, Salt Lake Comic Con, and New York Comic Con. The Offspring is a Star Trek The Next Generation season 3 episode. A year and three months ago the last time we had Michele on the show, she told us this was her favorite Star Trek episode. So we had to have her back on the show so we talk with her about The Offspring. You should grab a box of tissues to keep them by your drink you’ll probably need them for this week’s shot of Star Trek!

Episode 118: Wild Hologram Virtuoso

Synthaholics Episode 118: Wild Hologram Virtuoso

Synthaholics Episode 118: Wild Hologram Virtuoso

Have you seen the Wild Hologram Virtuoso? This week we talk about the Star Trek Voyager Episode Virtuoso where the doctor gets a bit wild to the point of resigning his commission to be a professional singer to a race that finds him to be a primitive holo matrix. After hearing Erin Gray audition for Janeway on Voyager David can’t watch Voyager without thinking about that. Aaron brings up what it must be like for the doctor where none of his friends seem to appreciate his other talents and skill other than doctoring. So we both talk times in our life where our talents may not have been appreciated. This discussion leads into some thoughts about our education system as a whole. Virtuoso brings up some of the same thoughts and ideas about the personhood and the sentience of holographic beings that were brought out last week on Holograms Gone Wild. We hope you enjoy your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 117: Star Trek Holograms Gone Wild

Synthaholics Episode 117: Star Trek Holograms Gone Wild

Synthaholics Episode 117: Star Trek Holograms Gone Wild

This week Aaron and David delve into the world of Star Trek Holograms Gone Wild this is something we teased way back in the earliest days of the podcast and we are now bringing it to you! For this first holograms gone wild we thought we’d talk about the two Star Trek The Next Generation Episodes that involve Professor James Moriarty “Elementary, Dear Data” and “Ship in a bottle”! These are two fascinating episodes of Star Trek and bring up interesting moral dilemmas such as; are holograms actual life forms, at what point does artificial intelligence become sentient, and are their any safeguards being considered to prevent this from happening? We hope this episode inspires you to watch these two episodes back to back it really is a fantastic way to see“Elementary, Dear Data” and “Ship in a bottle”. What are you having to drink with your weekly shot of Star Trek?

Episode 116: Star Trek DS9 The Jem’Hadar

Synthaholics Episode 116: Star Trek DS9 The Jem’Hadar

Synthaholics Episode 116: Star Trek DS9 The Jem’Hadar

This week we talk the Star Trek DS9 episode The Jem’Hadar. This is the season two finale for Deep Space Nine and and our first good look at two of the major players for the Dominion, the Jem’Hadar and the Vorta! But before we talk The Jem’Hadar we reflect on our weekend at Nickel City Con and talk a little bit more about our experience there as well.David wildly speculates about Voyager after mentioning the segment you all heard last week with Erin Gray. The Dominion the Vorta and the Jem’Hadar seem wildly overpowered and are scarier in this episode then they seem to be going forward. To wrap up we also talk bridge design pointing out the Enterprise and Odyssey have different bridges so it’s totally feasible for the USS Shenzhou’s bridge to look very different from the pike era Enterprise. Make sure you prep your jambalaya before you go camping, and don’t forget the alcohol! It’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!
