Episode 261: Picard Post Mortem with Lloyd Evans

Episode 261: Picard Post Mortem with Lloyd Evans

Lloyd Evans returns as our guest! This week David, Aaron and Llyod do our post mortem of Star Trek: Picard Season 1. The return of Sir Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard has been greatly anticipated. Did this season do justice to one of Star Trek’s most beloved character? We have mixed feelings on the outcome. There were high points that we enjoyed. But there are plot points that left us scratching our heads. Or in David’s case, shaking his fists in anger. Either way this season was noteworthy. And if you are a Star Trek fan it is a must watch. Pour yourself a tasty beverage, pop in your earbuds and lets reflect on Star Trek: Picard. Enjoy together responsibly!

Lloyd Evans is an ex-Jehovah’s Witness writer and activist. He is the founder of JWsurvey.org – an online resource aimed at assisting those who wish to leave the Witness faith. Lloyd Evans host the popular YouTube channel “John Cedars”. His recently has written a book “The Reluctant Apostate” about his experience leaving the faith.

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 206: Project Daedalus Discovery S2E9

Jen the Klingon Pop Warrior joins Holly, Aaron, and David this week to discuss Project Daedalus this week’s episode of Star Trek Discovery. Jen brings us sad news that the Klingon Christmas Carol will not be playing at all this year. We also have some news about the Deep Space Nine documentary What We Left behind. Project Daedalus is the episode Holly was waiting for since this episode prominently features Airium. Unfortunately there are no Klingons in this episode two times having Jen on and no Klingons to talk about with her. We did record this episode on jolly old St. Patrick’s day so drinking and shenanigans are sure to ensue. It’s time to grab some more Guinness it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek.

Please take a look at Jen’s website and follow her on Facebook and Twitter!

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 176: Spotting Dax

Episode 176: Spotting Dax

Who’s a character we haven’t really spent a ton of time talking about? Well that would be Jadzia Dax! We feel like this character was underutilized and so our doing our first Spotting Dax Episode. This week we look briefly at the Star Trek Deep Space Nine pilot Emissary before jumping into the first Dax centric episode called…. you guessed Dax. Not really any news to talk this week but we do discuss what it may be like to live on in another body humanoid or otherwise! I hope you have some slug symbiont juice nearby, it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek.

Episode 171: The Ballad of Thomas Riker

Episode 171: The Ballad of Thomas Riker

Episode 171: The Ballad of Thomas Riker

What happens when transporter accidents don’t kill you? Aaron and David are here to recount the ballad of Thomas Riker. Some fates are worse than death, like being stuck alone for 8 years to find out that you actually did make it out. You could also be pining for a woman for 8 years just to find out she only wants to be friends. Or you could steal the most advanced federation warship and then turn yourself over to the Cardassians to work the rest of your days in a labor camp. You could also be promised a daring rescue by a woman who forgets about you when she falls in love with a changeling. The Ballad of Thomas Riker is one paved with much sorrow and regret!

But before we jump into Star Trek The Next Generation episode “Second Chances” and the DS9 episode “Defiant” we have some more exciting star trek news to talk about! You may wipe the sweat from your brow no animated series episode today! Pour yourself a double of whatever you are drinking, it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 144: Janeway, Ransom, and the Equinox

Episode 144: Janeway, Ransom, and the Equinox

This week we have a request to talk about the Star Trek Voyager Episode Equinox. This request came from the Synthaholics Facebook group around when Episode 4 of Star Trek Discovery aired. Comparisons were made between Captain Ransom and Lorca so we thought this would be a fun episode to touch on while Star Trek Discovery is still fresh in our minds. If you ever make contact with a green floating alien don’t try to make fuel out of it! If you are looking for drink ideas check out the Synthaholics YouTube channel. There you will find some drink to try while you enjoy your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 142: To Boldly Go When the Train Stops with Kipleigh Brown, Lisa Hansell and James Kerwin

Synthaholics Episode 142: To Boldly Go When the Train Stops with Kipleigh Brown, Lisa Hansell and James Kerwin

This week we welcome Kipleigh Brown, Lisa Hansell, and James Kerwin to discus the Star Trek Continues Series finale To Boldly Go and the upcoming short film When the Train Stops! We had a great time talking with our guests about the passion and attention to detail that makes Star Trek Continues come alive, and how emotionally charged the series finale was.

Last time James and Kipleigh joined us on the show they teased an upcoming project called When the Train Stops today we get to hear Lisa expand a bit on the project. We learn who the principal actors will be and that the film will have a twilight zone like feel to it. The conversation with James, Kipliegh and Lisa was fantastically fun and we hope you all enjoy your weekly shot of Star Trek!
