Episode 211: Such Sweet Sorrow Part 2 Discovery S2E14

Episode 211: Such Sweet Sorrow Part 2

Phillip Malerich joins Aaron and David to discuss Such Sweet Sorrow Part 2 the season finale of Star Trek Discovery Season 2. Holly was once again was abducted by the Red Angels so she was unable to participate in the discussion this week. Most of the Star Trek news this week is related to the ending of Such Sweet Sorrow so we wait to the end of the episode to discuss this week’s news. Beware this episode contains full spoilers for Such Sweet Sorrow Part 2 and the second season of Star Trek Discovery Season 2. On many levels this episode is pretty much what we expected it to be. The biggest surprise to us was the lack of any real clear cliffhanger. The ending also felt like a great opener for a Captain Pike and Number One seres. This is something we discuss after we talk about our thoughts on the Second Season of Star Trek Discovery. I wonder what alcoholic drinks Kelpian X-wing pilots enjoy? If you have any ideas let us know, it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 210: Such Sweet Sorrow Discovery S2E13

Episode 210: Such Sweet Sorrow Discovery S2E13

Episode 210: Such Sweet Sorrow Discovery S2E13

Aaron, Holly, and David are all together to discuss Such Sweet Sorrow the second to last episode of the second season of Star Trek Discovery. Much like season one of Star Trek Discovery this episode does a lot to set up what will happen in the finale while withholding all the action for the finale. Even though this is the case it is an episode full of character moments for character other than Michael and we get a great look at the updated Enterprise bridge and it is a truly beautiful sight to behold.

We are all looking forward to see next week’s episode to see how the wrap up the season. There are a  ton of possibilities many of which could be very exciting. Once we finish the episode discussion we have a bit of a PSA at the end to clarify our thoughts on Star Trek and Discovery as a whole. Break out your finest wine and have a toast for parting is such sweet sorrow. It’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 204: Light and Shadows

Episode 204: Light and Shadows

Guy Davis is back, he joins Holly, Aaron, and David to discuss Light and Shadows the seventh episode of the second season of Star Trek Discovery. Before we take our deep drive into the episode we have news regarding the character descriptions of the new characters appearing in the Picard show. The descriptions of the characters remind Aaron and David of the Star Trek Renegades fan film. This week’s episode splits the party with Michael going looking for spock while the crew of the Discovery deals with a temporal anomaly. This episode is a great set up for what is to come. Some of us enjoyed Light and Shadows and some of didn’t care for it as much. Pour yourself some of your finest futures liquor it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek

Episode 193: Jetrel

Episode 193: Jetrel

Episode 193: Jetrel

It’s been a while since we have discussed a Voyager episode so this week Holly, Aaron, and David talk the Star Trek Voyager episode Jetrel. But first we have some news. Aaron discovered on his YouTube feed that he started seeing new videos from the Axanar channel so it seems like that is back in production. This week the third Short Trek the Brightest Star was released and Holly and Aaron caught up on the paste episodes so we discuss our thoughts on Calypso and The Brightest Star.

Jetrel is a Voyager season one episode that centers on Neelix of all people. But this is actually a very solid episode with strong calls to World War II and Robert Oppenheimer. Jetrel is basically Oppenheimer and he developed a weapon of mass destruction that was used on the Talaxians. The episode is ultimately a message about forgiveness and Is really quite well done. Pour yourself a very strong drink, it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 114: Light Bringer Earth Shaker

 Light Bringer Earth Shaker

Synthaholics Episode 114: Light Bringer Earth Shaker

Voyager is the Light Bringer, Earth Shaker is this season six episode of Star Trek Voyager: Blink of an Eye. Aaron and David are sticking to their promise to bring you more voyager in 2017! This week we give Harry Kim a break since he barely appears in this episode! We enjoyed this episode about really bad science because it let us get to know the planet as it aged and the people that inhabited the planet and how its mythos was build all around the Light Bringer and Earth Shaker! It is interesting how myths and stories form a culture and we talk a little bit how things of old have their place in our culture. We once again let you know we will be at the Nickel City Con this weekend and we hope to see you all there! The link for the con will be in the links section.

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.
