Episode 132: Assignment Earth?

Synthaholics Episode 132: Assignment Earth?

Do you remember that time Star Trek did a backdoor pilot back in the second season? David didn’t until Aaron suggested that we watch the original series episode Assignment Earth.

This episode centers around this cat named Isis and her human secret agent Gary Seven. The Enterprise some how intercepts their transporter beam while for some strange reason being on a mission to observe 1968. Assignment Earth is Star Trek the animated series level of strange! We are thankful there was a letter writing campaign to bring Star Trek back for a third season otherwise this could of been the series finale of the Original Series!

This episode has some very fascinating historical events happen close to the episodes release that were hinted at within the episode. Also is Gary Seven a Time Lord? If not then where did he get that Sonic Screwdriver? Pour yourself an extra strong drink it’s about to get weird on your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Synthaholics Episode 127: The Ballad of Harry Mudd

 Episode 127: The Ballad of Harry Mudd

Synthaholics Episode 127: The Ballad of Harry Mudd

This week we discuss the Ballad of Harry Mudd. Harcourt Fenton Mudd appeared three times in Star Trek’s past and will be appearing in the upcoming Star Trek Discovery. So in preparation we are talking about the Star Trek The Original Series episodes Mudd’s Women and I, Mudd as well as the Star Trek Animated Series episode Mudd’s Passion.

Before we get started we talk about the unfortunate news of LeVar Burton being sued over a catch phrase. After the news we quickly give the synopsis for each of the three episodes then get deep into our Mudd discussion. Harry is a really fun character even if his episodes weren’t the greatest.

We are excited to see how Rainn Wilson’s take on Mudd will be in Discovery and we are very much hoping his personality will be intact. It’s that time of the week again break out the liquors and make your favorite drinks because it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 113 The Traveler

The Traveler and the three finger special

Synthaholics Episode 113: The Traveler

This week we are taking the Traveler! This is our first themed episode in quite some time! The Traveler appeared in three episodes of Star Trek The Next Generation over the seven seasons of the series. We briefly talk about the trek news before diving into the myth and lore behind the Traveler and his three fingers special! Ironically both Aaron and David didn’t remember the Traveler’s appearance in the episode Remember Me. The Traveler also appears in Where no one has gone before and Journey’s End. We speculate about Wesley’s origin and how it may tie into this character! We also talk about how creepy The Traveler seems to be. Are you thirsty? Grab yourself a drink it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek.

Episode112: Giant cats and comics

Giant Cats and comics

Episode 112: Giant cats and comics

When David is missing Aaron and Guy talk Giant cats and comics! This week Synthaholics goes into a deep dive on the Star Trek the animated series episode The Slaver Weapon. What would you put into a time capsule if you knew everything in it would be perfectly preserved? Lets hope it wouldn’t be a selfie, raw meat, and a swiss army gun. But if you did the Kzinti would probably appreciate it. This is one of two episodes where we ever see the Kzinti a bipedal cat like race who is bent on uncovering something to overthrow the federation. Once Aaron and Guy finish talking The Slaver weapon they get into a discussion about Guy’s Star Trek comic the USS Tamerlane. This leads to a segue to a Star Trek The Wrath of Khan and to Star Trek Nemesis! Anything and everything in this week’s episode of Synthaholics!

Episode 94: A Doomsday Christmas

A Doomsday Christmas

Episode 94: A Doomsday Christmas

The Doomsday Machine because a Doomsday Christmas as we wind down the year with a classic episode of Star Trek The Original Series. Aaron and David first go over the news of the casting of the lead actress for Star Trek Discovery. The show takes a dark turn talking about the doomsday machine and we get into the topic of atomic weapons and how devastating they are. Kirk prompts this discussion because in the episodes he talks about how the H-Bomb was the 20th century doomsday Machine. We want to wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy whatever you celebrate along with a Happy New Year because this is the last Synthaholics of 2016. We will see you guys next year! But don’t go anywhere yet it’s time to finish off your Egg-nog or whatever other Holiday Booze you have laying around because it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!
