Episode 147: USS Callister

Episode 147: USS Callister

Synthaholics Episode 147: USS Callister

It’s 2018 and we are back. Discovery returns in less then a week, and before we jump back into that we thought it would be fun to talk about the latest homage/parody of Star Trek with USS Callister the first episode of the latest season of Black Mirror. Aaron and David are big fans for Black Mirror and so we had a great time getting to discuss a Black Mirror episode for the podcast and it’s so much fun that it is an episode with strong ties to Star Trek.

We recommend you logging on to Netflix to check out Episode 1 of Season 4 of Black Mirror to see USS Callister before you listen to this episode because we go full on spoilers for USS Callister. Grab your favorite holiday drink it’s time for your first Synthaholics of 2018!

Synthaholics Episode 144: Janeway, Ransom, and the Equinox

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 141: Into The Forest I Go

Episode 141: Into The Forest I Go

Episode 141: Into The Forest I Go

Star Trek Discovery comes to its mid season finale with Into the Forest I Go. The first chapter of season one comes to a close, luckily the wait won’t be too long for the second chapter of season one! Aaron and David first talk a bit of news and non spoiler reactions to the episode before the episode synopsis and the spoiler filled episode discussion.

Everything about the episode is fantastic, the writing, the acting, the terrific fight scene it all comes together for an absolutely fantastic mid season finale! We hope you brought lots to drink and a bag full of bread crumbs because it’s time to go into the forest for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 140: Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum

Episode 140: Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum

Synthaholics Episode 140: Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum

Aaron and David are back to discus “Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum” or if you want peace prepare for war. This week we get our first planetary away mission since the opening of “The Vulcan Hello”, more Klingons, and Admiral Cornwell! Saru is leading the landing party and much of the episode is a character study on our Kelpien officer as we start to learn much more about him. We only have one more episode until the midseason finale and this Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum feels like the first part of a two or three part episode. Grab a drink it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 138: Star Trek Discovery Lethe

Episode 138: Star Trek Discovery Lethe

Synthaholics Episode 138: Star Trek Discovery Lethe

Aaron and David are back to discuss Star Trek Discovery Episode 6 “Lethe”. This week was heavy on character building and it was a nice change of pace compared to the last several episodes. Lethe was such a fascinating ride where we learn more about Michael, Lorca, Ash, and Sarek. Lethe didn’t seem to do a whole lot of advancing the overall story this week but it was for sure setting up the chess board. We can’t wait to see what all this leads to in the upcoming episodes! So far the end of each episode this season always leaves us wanting more, this episode is no exception. With only have three more episodes before the show goes on break we wonder how they will keep upping the ante. We hope you enjoy your weekly shot of Star Trek.

Episode 131: The Klingon Pop Warrior takes us Once More Unto the Breach

This week on Synthaholics Jen The Klingon Pop Warrior takes us Once More Unto the Breach! Jenbom our guest this week is the Klingon Pop Warrior.

We ask her to tell her story to how she got into singing songs in Klingon. Jen also wanted to talk about the amazing Star Trek Deep Space Nine episode Once More Unto the Breach. Jen lets us know that even though this in an amazing episode there was only one real Klingon word in the whole episode.

Once we recap the episode we talk more about Klingon. DuoLingo is adding Klingon to their app this month so we can all start learning Klingon. We also get Jen’s take on the Star Trek Discovery Klingons. Grab your favorite vintage of Bloodwine or a good cold glass of raktajino it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 129: Message in a Bottle

Synthaholics Episode 129: Message in a Bottle

Synthaholics Episode 129: Message in a Bottle

Have you ever sent a Message in a Bottle? Well it doesn’t really seem Voyager really did on this episode with the same name. It seemed like it was maybe more like message in a doctor? That’s not the only part of the episode that doesn’t make sense.

But before we try to crawl backwards into the bottle, for news we talk a little about the Orville because I don’t think it is something we have really touched on. Black Mirror’s new season is mentioned because they have one episode for the upcoming season that is visually similar to Star Trek.

Star Trek Voyager’s Message in a Bottle guest stars Andy Dick as the EMH II. There is some great back and forth between Robert Picardo and Andy Dick that are some of the best parts of the episode. The B plot just feels kind of like a waste of time. Also why does sending a file cause the file to be lost? All this and more this week on Synthaholics your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Synthaholics Episode 125: The Killing Game with Adam Herr

Episode 125: The Killing Game with Adam Herr

Episode 125: The Killing Game with Adam Herr

This week Aaron and David discuss the Killing Game with Adam Herr. Adam Herr is a member of The Geekiverse and we’ve had different guests from the Geekivers in the past.

This week is an extra long episode clocking in at just over two hours because we have about 40 minutes of discussion of news and and rabbit holes. We finally get around to discussing the new SDCC Star Trek Discovery Trailer and get into some of the articles that have been released since SDCC.

Once we get past the news we talk about Adam’s favorite episode of Star Trek Voyager The Killing Game! This is a holodeck two parter episode where the Hirogen have taken over Voyager and forced Harry Kim to convert the ship into a giant holodeck. Meanwhile the Hirogen run programs where they can hunt the crew of Voyager over and over again. This is a fun episode as many of the hologram episodes tend to be. There are some strange leaps this episode makes and we have fun getting into all of them. Make whatever drink you are having a triple because this weekly shot of Star Trek is a long one!

Episode 124: Enterprise Twilight

Episode 124: Enterprise Twilight

Synthaholics Episode 124: Enterprise Twilight

Remember the Star Trek Enterprise Twilight where a space anomaly gave poor archer brain parasites that were out of phase with time?  This basically makes Archer like the guy in the movie Memento!

Without being able to form new memories Archer can no longer command the Enterprise and this leads to many disasters. But before we get into the episode we talk about some of the props, costumes and ships that were shown off at San Diego Comic Con. Alas we recorded the episode early so we didn’t get to talk about the new trailer this week.

Be sure to listen next week as we will be talking about that new trailer then! Would you give up being able to form new memories if you had T’Pol taking care of you the rest of your life? We ask and answer that question and more on your weekly shot of Star Trek!
