Episode 193: Jetrel

It’s been a while since we have discussed a Voyager episode so this week Holly, Aaron, and David talk the Star Trek Voyager episode Jetrel. But first we have some news. Aaron discovered on his YouTube feed that he started seeing new videos from the Axanar channel so it seems like that is back in production. This week the third Short Trek the Brightest Star was released and Holly and Aaron caught up on the paste episodes so we discuss our thoughts on Calypso and The Brightest Star.

Jetrel is a Voyager season one episode that centers on Neelix of all people. But this is actually a very solid episode with strong calls to World War II and Robert Oppenheimer. Jetrel is basically Oppenheimer and he developed a weapon of mass destruction that was used on the Talaxians. The episode is ultimately a message about forgiveness and Is really quite well done. Pour yourself a very strong drink, it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 192: Realm of Fear

Episode 192: Realm of Fear

Episode 192: Realm of Fear

Arron, Holly, and David are back this week to talk the TNG Episode Realm of Fear! No Star Trek news this week but the next Short Trek will be out before we record next week so we should of that to talk about next week. Realm of Fear is one of the Next Generation Episodes that features Dwight Schultz as Barclay! Barclay is one of our favorite recurring characters in Star Trek, so it’s about time we do an episode that is all about him.

In this episode we learn Barclay has an extreme and possibly irrational fear of being transported. Barclay must overcome his fears to help solve the mystery about what happened to the USS Yosemite. Because this episode focuses on his fear that seems to be on the irrational side we get into a discussion on what some of our irrational fears are! Pour yourself a drink that will help calm your nerves it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 191: The Expanse

Episode 191: The Expanse

Episode 191: The Expanse

Aaron has returned from his Section 31 outing and with all of us together again we discuss the Enterprise season two episode The Expanse. Aaron did gather some news on his away mission. It seems Michael Dorn is interested in joining the Picard series if his part is meaningful. Also the Midnight’s Edge youtube channel did an interview with Wrath of Khan writer/director Nicholas Meyer.

We have decided to tackle the Xindi Enterprise arc starting with this episode to examine is it really as bad or as good as some people remember. Do not fret this hasn’t just become an Enterprise podcast. We will keep our regular seemingly random selection of episodes until season two of Discovery airs. But each time we need to cover Enterprise will just move along the season one episode at a time! Grab your favorite drink to help you thought the Xindi arc it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 190: Annihilation

Episode 190: Annihilation

Episode 190: Annihilation

Aaron is off on an above top secret Section 31 mission so Holly and David use this week to talk about the 2018 Sci-fi Thriller Annihilation. Annihilation stars Natalie Portman and Oscar Isaac in a very thought provoking sci-fi film where the main theme is self destruction. Holly gives us the movie recap this week and we discuss the film what we thought of it and some of our favorite and least favorite things about the film. Unfortunately this week was light on Star Trek news and Holly has yet to see the Short Trek Calypso. Pour yourself your finest mixed drink in honor of all the mixed up life forms in the shimmer, it’s time for your weekly shot of Science Fiction!

Episode 188: Spotting Dax II – Invasive Procedures

Episode 188: Spotting Dax II - Invasive Procedures

Episode 188: Spotting Dax II – Invasive Procedures

The Halloween time is over and it has been a while since we’ve Spotted Dax, so this week we are talking Invasive Procedures. This week unfortunately Holly was not able to join us but she emailed us audio of her thoughts for this episode.

This week there wasn’t really anything too newsworthy thought we do discuss our plans for Episode 200 toward the end of the show. So please tune in for that we are wanting listener participation to make episode 200 something very special! The second time Deep Space Nine gives Dax her own episode it is again somewhat underwhelming as it doesn’t get to really show what the character is capable of. We will continue to look forward to when Dax comes into her own. Pour yourself a drink it’s time to be rejoined in your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 187: Catspaw

Episode 187: Catspaw

Happy Halloween from Synthaholics and the Star Trek episode Catspaw! But before we get into the episode we have some Star Trek news. This week it was announced that there was going to be a new Star Trek animated sitcom called Lower Decks! We all give our thoughts and opinions on this new show before we break down Catspaw.

Catspaw was designed to be a Halloween episode of Star Trek so we thought it was a prefect time do discuss this episode. Beware all who enter and listen to this podcast, lots of silliness ensues cat and bird noises abound! This episode we also talk about how Halloween was for each of us growing up, turns out the three of us all had some pretty strict upbringings when it comes to Halloween. Break out your Halloween treats it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 186: Event Horizon featuring Robbie Palmer

Episode 186: Event Horizon

Episode 186: Event Horizon

This week Robbie Palmer of The Nerdynomicon joins Aaron, Holly, and David to discuss the sci-fi/horror cult classic film Event Horizon. Before we get into the main topic there was not a whole lot of Star Trek news this week but, a new photo of L’Rell with hair was released so we do briefly touch on this.

This week’s recap takes awhile to get through as we have so much to say about his movie as things come up. We hope you will enjoy this episode we come up with lots of interesting ideas and theories for the movie and we hope the next time you watch Event Horizon our discussion will have made the movie more interesting to watch and think about! Grab some of your favorite Halloween candy you are getting some horror with your weekly shot of Sci-fi!

Episode 185: Real Life

Episode 185: Real Life

This week on Synthaholics David and Aaron discuss the Star Trek Voyager episode Real Life. Unfortunately Holly was not feeling well this week and unable to join us. But before we get into the voyager episode we talk a little Discovery news and about our expectations for season two.

We quickly discover that Real Life is one of Aaron least favorite episodes of Star Trek. While David doesn’t love the episode he is able to find more redeeming qualities in the episode. After the episode recap we get into talk about family life and how it was growing up for Aaron and I and how we compare to the doctors children. Pour yourself a double of whatever you are drinking it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 184: I Borg

Episode 184: I Borg

Episode 184: I Borg

The three Synthaholics are back on their regular schedule and no audio issues! This week they discuss I Borg from the 5th season of Star Trek The Next Generation. Before we get into the episode discussion we have some Star Trek Discovery news. At NYCC the second trailer for Star Trek Discovery dropped and we were all pretty blown away by it. Robbie from The Nerdynomicon Podcast joins us to discuss the trailer before beaming out. The first Short Trek Runaway is out and we got full spoilers on it. I Borg is a fantastic episode involving the borg and deals with the moral questions of how we may view our enemies. Check out the Synthaholics YouTube channel to learn how to make a Borg Queen Martini so you can drink along with your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 183: The Muse

Episode 183: The Muse

Episode 183: The Muse

Aaron, Holly, and David are back this week to discuss the Star Trek Deep Space Nine episode The Muse! It’s been a month but we are all back in the recording booth again. Due to technical difficulties our news segment and the beginning of the recap are missing. Luckily the majority of the show is intact and the important philosophical discussions about long life and moderate success vs short life and mind blowing success is all there. This episode surprised us as it was better then we remembered it being. The Muse is Majel Barrett final on screen performance as Lwaxana Troi and it is a very touching one with her side story with Odo. Pour yourself a tall drink it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!
