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 202: Saints of Imperfection Discovery S2E5

This week our friend Joe DePinto joins Holly, Aaron, and David to discuss Saints of Imperfection, the fifth episode of the second season of Star Trek Discovery. Beware this episode contains full spoilers for Saints of Imperfection. Before we get started on talking about the latest Star Trek Discovery episode we respond to the news that a Star Trek Animated Series is being developed for children on Nickelodeon. We also recall how some of us couldn’t watch certain shows on Nickelodeon or were prohibited from watching the channel at all! This week we still don’t get any Spock but we do get Section 31 and Admiral Cornwell makes her first appearance in season two this week. Time to pour yourself a drink from your stash that isn’t as secret as you thought it would be. It’s time for you 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.

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 104: It’s been a long Regeneration

Holly Michelle of Artful Gremlins joins us this week to talk about the Enterprise episode Regeneration. This is the one and only Borg episode of Star Trek Enterprise. The Borg in the episode actually make a ton of sense once taken in context to what happened in Star Trek First contact. Speaking on the Borg this week David made a drink called the Borg Sphere that we drank while recording this episode. Be sure to check out our YouTube Channel for Synthaholic Shorts some videos we have been adding to our channel. The link is below! It’s time to look up the recipe for the Borg Sphere so you can get assimilated for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 102: Our Year of Hell

Our Year of Hell

Episode 102: Our Year of Hell

This week we welcome our good friend Pete Herr AKA the Grumpy Geek to talk about Star Trek Voyager Year of Hell! We ask Pete what he has going on lately at The Geekiverse before getting into the episode. This episode deals with Red Forman of That 70’s Show causing time travel mayhem for the crew of the voyager for a year! Aaron makes a Simpsons reference that falls the unfamiliar ears of David and Pete. We go on other rabbit holes such as Batman,  James Bond, Deep Space Nine and Star Trek Discovery! We picked this episode as it is a favorite of Pete’s and it also lets us look back at the last year when things changed for Aaron and I! Since bloodwine comes up quite a bit this episode I recommend you grab some it is an excellent beverage as it is time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Suffering of O’Brien Part 1

Episode 101: The Suffering of O’Brien Part 1

This week we tackle our first Suffering of O’Brien episode for your valentine’s day today! Though we don’t mention valentine’s day by name the episode the episode starts with Miles and Keiko going on a romantic vacation together! But what Star Trek Valentine’s day getaway is complete without being arrested and put on trial to be executed by the Cardassians? If by now you have guessed that we are talking about the Deep Space Nine season two episode Tribunal you are absolutely correct! But before we get into the episode Aaron and David discuss the Instagram photo that shows Klingons on lunch break. We also have an email and an audio clip that didn’t make it in time for the 100th episode so we read and play those for you as well! It’s time to bust or your favorite valentine’s day drink because it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!
