Episode 99: Approaching the Threshold

Approaching the Threshold

Episode 99: Approaching the Threshold

Synthaholics is approaching the threshold the 100 episode threshold! So we dive into the much talked about and much ridiculed Star Trek Voyager episode Threshold. But first we go into the latest casting announcement we have for Star Trek discovery and its newest delay. We talk about how this episode could have been made better because the episode doesn’t really completely fall apart until the last act. Michael De Luca wrote the story for this episode and Aaron brings up some fun facts about him. Do salamanders like alcoholic beverages? If so it’s time to grab that drink it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek.

Episode 96: And Justice For All

And Justice For All

Episode 96: And Justice For All

This week we dive back into Star Trek the Next Generation with justice for all in the episode Justice! This is probably no one’s favorite Star Trek episode so Aaron and David tackle it together. Justice is a not bad episode but it is a fairly silly episode with lots of barely dressed beautiful people who’s only punishment for being naughty isn’t a spanking it’s death! The prime directive gets evoked quite a bit in Justice so once we finish talking about the episode we discus the prime directive itself and why they shouldn’t of ever visited the Edo world in the first place. Is there a special drink or cocktail that gets you in the mood? You know the mood I’m talking about! Well fix yourself a glass because it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 92: Duet in C#

Episode 92: Duet in C#

Star Trek Deep Space Nine Season 1 can be a tough season to get through but Duet is the diamond in the rough for that season. It is by far the best episode of season 1 and this is what we talk about this week on Synthaholics! We discuss what makes this episode so great and we do bring up its few very minor flaws and why they may or may not be flaws. Before we get started this week we do go over some of the news CBS put out about Star Trek Discovery, and briefly touch on Bryan Fuller’s replacement as showrunner. We also bring you a very “Special” Duet please don’t turn off the episode, bear it because there is a little more to hear after that part. Look for your strongest men singing badly drink remedy…. It’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 91: Revenge of the Geekiverse

Episode 91: Revenge of the Geekiverse

It’s that time of the month… the time where we delve into things not Star Trek. Yes I know it’s has been a lot of Star Wars but come February we will bring different science fiction to talk about until the countdown to Episode 8. Once again Josiah and Trevor for The Geekiverse join us to talk about the very last George Lucas Star Wars film The Revenge of the Sith. We all go over our highs and lows from the film and we talk a little about how the different commentaries brought different things to light to us for the films. We look back on this and remember this movie is like remembering old times. Jamie LeRoy makes her debut appearance on our show this Episode! I think I’ll have whatever Obi-wan started drinking after he witnessed the Jedi being massacred and leaving his friend to burn to death on the side of a volcano. Actually let’s make it a double it’s time for this weeks shot of Science Fiction!

For more on Star Wars and the upcoming Rouge One check out The Geekiverse they will have more news info and speculation on that movie in the coming weeks!

Episode 89: Worst of the Worst Part 2

Episode 89: Worst of the Worst Part 2

This week Holly Michelle joins us again for this time for our worst of the worst part 2! Our job was to pick 3 episodes each that we think are some of the worst Star Trek has to offer. Once we pick our episodes we keep them secret from each other to not influence the decision of the others. Then we recorded this episode for you guys. The secrecy was nice because we had some overlap on our picks something we didn’t have on our first worst of the worst episode. With any thing named Worst of the Worst keep in mind this is a subjective topic and personal to each of us based on our tastes. But if you want to tell us why you think these episodes are great or want to make suggestions on episodes that are worse please email us and we will read it on a future episode! So swing open the doors on your favorite liquor cabinet it is time for your weekly shot or 7 of Star Trek!
