David and Holly continue to look back on Picards character in preparation for the all new Picard Series coming to CBS in 2020. This episode shows how Picard is treated by the Federation following his Borg assimilation and recovery, but also his reaction to how he is treated. Picard basically admits to being “damaged” goods in this episode, so is he better or worse for his experience with the borg?
We are joined by the talented Guy Davis of the Rocky Mountain Geek Tank podcast and the Star Trek webcomic USS Tamerlane. This episode of Synthaholics we return to the streets of Jean-Luc Picard’s hometown La Barre, France. Picard tries to heal from his assimilation to the Borg by returning to his house that he grew up in. We will meet his brother Robert. We will explore why Robert and Jean-Luc’s relationship is filled with animosity. Guy and Aaron discuss the meanings behind Picard returning home and the psychology behind it.
Guy Davis again joins Holly, Aaron, and David to discuss The Red Angel the tenth episode of the second season of Star Trek Discovery. This week there is some light news about the new Picard show, Patrick Stewart has red the script he is said to of enjoyed it and shooting for the show starts in April. In this episode we find out who the red angel is….. Or do we? Or is the switcharoo a red herring. I guess we fill find out next week? Unfortunately Guy is here for another exposition episode instead of a more plot heavy episode. In this episode section 31 comes to hang out with Discovery to try to capture the red angel. They need to set a mousetrap where Michael is the bait to catch herself maybe? What do you think Red Angels like to drink? Break out whatever you think that might be it’s time for your weekly shot or Star Trek!

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!
