Episode 287: Star Trek Discovery “That Hope Is You, Part 1”

Aaron and David are back this week to discuss “That Hope is You, Part 1” the first episode of season 3 of Star Trek Discovery. This episode will contain spoilers. The episode is mostly carried by Sonequa Martin-Green who shows a huge range in her acting ability. While the story is mostly a fun chase sequence. We start off giving some non spoiler thoughts of the first episode before we get into deep spoilers. The 930 year jump Discovery has made the future opens up so many possibilities for where the season could go. It will be very interesting to see where it could go and we do some speculation on where the larger story could go and when we think we will see the rest of the crew. What do you think where this future story is heading? Could the temporal cold war still be causing issues? Only time will tell. It’s time to pour yourself a cold glass of Romulan Ale, for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Book Club Episode 10: Dune Part 10

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!

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 264: Kobayashi Maru Extinction with Jason Yungbluth

Episode 264: Kobayashi Maru Extinction with Jason Yungbluth

Episode 264: Kobayashi Maru Extinction with Jason Yungbluth

This week we need to apologize to our special guest Jason Yungbluth. Because was are talking about one of our least favorite episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise – “Extinction”. BUT there is more! We balance off this bitter episode with the sweet discussion of Jason Yungbluth’s newset comic book “Kobayashi Maru”! A comic book series set in a universe that parodies the Star Trek universe. Yungbluth is well known for his work comic book writer & artist on “Weapon Brown” (a dystopic Charlie Brown story) and “Deep Fried” (a untouchable comedy comic strip). Poor Jason has to talk about this shitty episode, but at least it is good for a few laughs. Enjoy together responsibly!
