Synthaholics Episode 117: Star Trek Holograms Gone Wild

Synthaholics Episode 117: Star Trek Holograms Gone Wild

This week Aaron and David delve into the world of Star Trek Holograms Gone Wild this is something we teased way back in the earliest days of the podcast and we are now bringing it to you! For this first holograms gone wild we thought we’d talk about the two Star Trek The Next Generation Episodes that involve Professor James Moriarty “Elementary, Dear Data” and “Ship in a bottle”! These are two fascinating episodes of Star Trek and bring up interesting moral dilemmas such as; are holograms actual life forms, at what point does artificial intelligence become sentient, and are their any safeguards being considered to prevent this from happening? We hope this episode inspires you to watch these two episodes back to back it really is a fantastic way to see“Elementary, Dear Data” and “Ship in a bottle”. What are you having to drink with your weekly shot of Star Trek?

Synthaholics Episode 115: Nichelle Nichols, J.G. Hertzler, and Erin Gray at Nickel City Con

Synthaholics Episode 115: Nichelle Nichols, J.G. Hertzler, and Erin Gray at Nickel City Con

This week we were honored to get to talk with Nichelle Nichols, J.G. Hertzler, and Erin Gray at Nickel City Con!  The Nickel City Con was such a blast this year, Aaron was at his table for Numina Comics and David was able to host a panel with Erin Gray. In addition to the celebrities, we were also able to speak with artists and con goers who were attending the convention to ask their thoughts about the Star Trek Discovery trailer that just aired last week.  We got to hear from a variety of people ranging from non fans of Star Trek all the way up to people in full on Star Trek cosplay. We hope you enjoy this week’s comic con 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 111: The Suffering of O’Brien Part 2: Hard Time

Hard Time The Suffering of O'Brien

Episode 111: The Suffering of O’Brien Part 2: Hard Time

Miles Edward O’Brien is facing hard time in Deep Space Nine. This might be one of his hardest times! This week we talk about The Star Trek Deep Space Nine season four episode Hard Time. Aaron and David first talk some limited Trek news before delving into this week’s episode. Hard Time really gets the Synthaholics diving into a discussion on mental health, the justice system and the prison system. We still keep the humor coming but this is a bit on the deeper side of Synthaholics! After you get out of a 20 year jail sentence what is the first thing you get to drink? If you guest Synthale you are probably Irish! Personally I’d for for something harder but you choose whatever wets your whistle because it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 110: Star Trek The Disease

Disease

Episode 110: Star Trek The Disease

This week Aaron and David are alone to talk about Star Trek Voyager season 5 episode The Disease. We wanted to get into this episode because we referenced it the last time we spoke about Voyager in the Nightingale episode. Two is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do when you are Harry Kim and there is no reason you can’t be together in the story. He can’t be with his love because of silly 90’s television rules! This is a surprisingly strong episode of Voyager even though it is a Kim strong episode. We have fun discussing the episode and making up silly words for the parts of love! Aaron brings it with some great background info The Disease’s two main guest stars be sure to listen till the end to hear these. There are no borg in this episode but we did have a Borg Queen Martini to drink. You know the drill mix or pour yourself a drink because it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek.

Episode 109: Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell

Episode 109: Ghost in the Shell

Josiah LeRoy joins us to talk about the recent Ghost in the Shell film starring Scarlett Johansson. But before we get into that we talk some The Walking Dead spoilers and what that means for our Star Trek Discovery lead Sonequa Martin-Green. Aaron and David are huge fans of the original 1995 Ghost in the Shell anime and Josiah had gotten to see a portion of it before getting together to do this podcast. We go in depth about the differences and similarities between the original film and this live action adaptation. The discussion also delves into the philosophy of the original movie and how it’s changed for the new film. We all agree this movie delivers a visual feast for the eyes so if you have not seen this movie you should see it for the spectacle alone. This isn’t a perfect movie but we all agree it is worth seeing and worth seeing on the big screen! What do cyborgs like to drink? I don’t’ know but you should drink what you like because it’s time for your monthly shot of Non-Trek Science Fiction!

Natalie Schlichtmann

Episode 108: Natalie Schlichtmann has taste for Armageddon

This week we welcome cosplayer Natalie Schlichtmann on the show to talk about one of her favorite Star Trek episodes A Taste for Armageddon. We open the show introducing our guest and how we met, this segues into talking about the new Star Trek Discovery casting announcement of the classic character of Harry Mudd. Then lastly before getting to the main topic two kickstarters were brought to our attention to talk about on the show. The links are below if you want to check those out! We were thrilled Natalie picked this episode it is a really great episode and one that has been a while since we have seen. The implications of this episode are intriguing and frightening and very applicable to how we wage war today and we wonder how long it will take before everything is automated. You should  raid that liquor cabinet because it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 107: True Q

True Q

Episode 107: True Q

True Q is an episode we haven’t revisited in a long time. Off mic we have been talking about doing a Q episode and while David was in transit back home from my trip down south this episode sprung into his mind. Part of the trip randomly are talked about during this episode as we do a bit of rabbit holeing! This is an interesting episode, as all of Q episodes are usually some of the better Star Trek episodes. We see how the intern Amanda Rodgers is actually an new Q. Amanda says she wants to be human and have a normal life but sometimes love gets in the way of the best of intentions. If you have a ton of different rums look up how to make a Warp Core Breach because it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 106: Star Trek Nightingale

Star Trek Nightingale

Episode 106: Star Trek Nightingale

This week on Synthaholics we have a Star Trek listener request to talk about the Voyager episode Nightingale. This is a Harry Kim centric episode with an Icheb centric B plot. Guess which plot David like the best! This is an episode that both Aaron and David had not thought about in a while so it was nice to revisit this episode. We want to visit Voyager a bit more this year then we have in the years past. We hope you are ready for the David rants! We discus the burdens of command and how making this podcast on a weekly basis has changed our Star Trek viewing habits. We reveal that we will be at the Nickel City Con in May Aaron will be at a table and I will be floating around the con bouncing between his table The Artful Gremlins Table and The Geekiverse table. I will also be armed with my recorder walking the con floors to talk with people about Star Trek. Pour yourself your favorite drink it is time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!
