Episode 168: Dixon Hill

Episode 168: Dixon Hill

This week Aaron and David discuss the comings and goings of Picard’s favorite Holodeck character Dixon Hill! We were surprised to only find four times where Picard steps into the role of Dixon Hill. The first and most substantial appearance of the character was in The Next Generation season one episode “The Big Goodbye”. Dixon Hill also shows up in the season two episode “Manhunt” the season four episode “Clues” and probably makes the most memorable appearance in the film Star Trek First Contact.

Dixon Hill is a fun character to see Picard play and he is so memorable we could of swore he came up in TNG more often. Be sure to put your drinks on Dixon’s tab at Rex’s Bar, it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek.

Episode 166: Nickel City Con 2018

Episode 166: Nickel City Con 2018

Episode 166: Nickel City Con 2018

Last week we mentioned we could be at Nickel City Con and we had a fantastic time at the con this past weekend. Aaron ran the Numina Comics table and David was a roamer when he wasn’t moderating panels with Barbara Eden, Frank Cho, and Lori Petty. We didn’t speak to as many guests and vendors this year as past years. David did run into Jeff who has been on past comic con episodes and our Balance of Terror episode.

David also got to talk to the Angry Video Game Nerd about some of his favorite Star Trek moments. To round out the episode Aaron and I recorded our first podcast panel at Nickel City Con. To round out the panel Robbie from The Nerdynomicon and Chris Chavez from the BICBP Radio Network join us. The panel is more about letting the people know about our shows and if they had and questions getting a podcast started. We hope you enjoy this special convention episode of Synthaholics!

Episode 158 The Prime Directive Part 3 TNG Era

Episode 158: The Prime Directive Part 3 TNG Era

Episode 158: The Prime Directive Part 3 TNG Era

Are you ready for more prime directive? Well we hope the answer is yes because we are moving The Prime Directive discussion into the TNG era this week! This week we get into classic episodes such as “Justice”, “Pen Pals”, “Who Watches the Watchers”, “First Contact”, “Homeward”, and many others! For the most part we thought TNG would be much clearer examples of break or not break in The Prime Directive. But there were a few we definitely got into some debate over whether or not the prime directive was broken or not. We have been having so much fun going over the ins and outs of The Prime Directive, we hope you are enjoying as much as we are. Break out your post St. Patrick’s Day drinks it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 145: The Prime Directive Part 1

Episode 145: The Prime Directive Part 1

Synthaholics Episode 145: The Prime Directive Part 1

After talking about Ransom and Janeway both admitted to bending the prime directive last week. Aaron pitched the idea of talking about the prime directive. We thought this was a great idea but we decided it was too big to cover in one go so we will be doing multiple episodes about the prime directive.

This week we discuss the basics of what the prime directive is as well as some inconsistencies and exceptions to the rule. Specifically we get into General Order 24 and a little bit into the Omega Directive. We hope you are thirsty 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 126: Cause and Effect with Joe DePinto live from STLV

Episode 126: Cause and Effect with Joe DePinto live from STLV

Episode 126: Cause and Effect with Joe DePinto live from STLV

This week we talk Cause and Effect with Joe DePinto live from STLV. STLV is the Star Trek Las Vegas convention it is the largest Star Trek Con in the United States. Since Joe was still at the convention when we recorded this week he tells us what he has been up to at the con.

The stories from the con are great and one of Joe’s favorite episodes is the Star Trek The Next Generation episode Cause and Effect. This is a very fun episode that uses time travel in a new way for its time. If you think this is a copy of Groundhog Day this episode actually came out first!

Once we break down the episode we get into a discussion about our experiences with Déjà vu. The talk of Déjà vu makes David think of his fascination with the mandela effect. We go over a few examples of this effect and what the theory of how so many people can have false memories. Grab your favorite drink and your cards it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!
