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.

Episode 269: Far Beyond the Stars with Guy Davis

This week David, Aaron and Guy break away from the Expanse to talk about current issues. Warning: this episode we do get very political! As our country struggles with the issues of race and equality we dive into a classic Deep Space Nine episode. In this story the Prophets transport Sisko to the 1950s. Sisko becomes Benny Russell, a science-fiction writer that struggles with civil rights and inequality. When Benny writes his best story of Captain Benjamin Sisko a black commander of a futuristic space station. Benny is met with resistance to his story. This story echoes what we are seeing today and we break down our feelings and views of these issues in depth. It isn’t the easiest listen. Reality can be harsh. So pour yourself a strong drink. Enjoy together responsibly!

Episode 265: The Expanse Dulcinea and The Big Empty

Today we expand our universe with a little Syfy/Amazon show called… The Expanse! …too on the nose? Anyway, We have a relatively short episode for you this week -which is odd because we discussed the happenings of Episode 1 and 2 of the first season, but we’re all looking forward to more! But first we discuss the news of the latest Star Trek announcement “Strange New Worlds” Captain Pike, Number One and Spock will be back on the small screen at some point. Pour yourself something hard as you embark on this new trek to The Expanse.

Episode 260: The Gamesters of Triskelion

Episode 260: The Gamesters of Triskelion

Episode 260: The Gamesters of Triskelion

Aaaah, back to some classic Trek! This episode Dave and Aaron look back at the classic (but silly) Original Series “The Gamesters of Triskelion”. Over the years this episode has had a lot of cultural references and it has generated some internet memes. But is it a good episode? You can bet 1000 quatloos that Dave and Aaron will discuss it ad nauseam! What young pubescent boy wouldn’t love an alien green hair warrior woman wrapped scantily in tin foil? Some of us boys enjoy Captain Kirk fighting a giant caveman and kissing Lady Gaga… er, Shahna. Put on your training harness, step into the arena and listen with your favorite adult beverage as we break down this offbeat episode of Star Trek. Enjoy together responsibly!

Episode 258: Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 2 with Jeff Heller of Screen Radar

The finale of Star Trek: Picard is here! We unpack this loaded episode with our guest Jeff Heller from Screen Radar. We all come out of Season One with different thoughts and feelings. Some of us felt that it was a good finale and season. While others feel it was a hollow ending. Will Soji become the “Destroyer”? How can Picard appeal to the Synths to not start Ganmadan or “Judgment Day”? Will the Romulan fleet destroy the Synth’s homeworld? Is this season purely a goodbye for Commander Data? Will Picard say his last goodbyes to his friends? Will there be a Season Two? We discuss all these questions and more. Please join us for a lively examination of this episode.  Enjoy together responsibly!

Episode 254: The Impossible Box

Episode 254: The Impossible Box

Episode 254: The Impossible Box

This week Dave, Holly and Aaron discuss the Picard episode “The Impossible Box”. Picard finally makes it to the “Artifact” (AKA the Borg Cube) to search for Soji. Picard is met by an old friend Hugh the ex-Borg. In the meantime, Soji is haunted by a nightmare. With the help of Narek, Soji is able to explore her dream only to find more questions about her identity. Picard and Soji finally meet and have to escape the Artifact. While we discuss Dave expresses his feelings of a tedious story arc. Holly is enjoying the series and is excited to see where the story goes next. While Aaron is happy with the story but feels like the plot is moving along too slow. No matter what our feelings are, the Picard series serves up nostalgia and builds on that framework to deliver a new narrative to the Star Trek universe. Enjoy together responsibly!
