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 185: Real Life

Episode 185: Real Life

Episode 185: Real Life

This week on Synthaholics David and Aaron discuss the Star Trek Voyager episode Real Life. Unfortunately Holly was not feeling well this week and unable to join us. But before we get into the voyager episode we talk a little Discovery news and about our expectations for season two.

We quickly discover that Real Life is one of Aaron least favorite episodes of Star Trek. While David doesn’t love the episode he is able to find more redeeming qualities in the episode. After the episode recap we get into talk about family life and how it was growing up for Aaron and I and how we compare to the doctors children. Pour yourself a double of whatever you are drinking it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 179: Heroes and Demons

Heroes and Demons

Episode 179: Heroes and Demons

As promised last week Aaron and David are back to discuss the Star Trek Voyager episode Heroes and Demons. Before we get into the episode we talk the Star Trek Discovery news that Spock has been cast and the potential names for new Star Trek shows! In Heroes and Demons the Doctor has to bravely go to the Holodeck to find out what happened to Harry, Chakotay, and Tuvok.

Funny thing Aaron and David both remember this episode differently before rewatching. The episode isn’t too much of a thinker because it’s basically Star Trek wanting to do Beowulf. But it is a fun episode seeing the Doctor totally as a fish out of water. Because we wrap up the Heroes and Demons talk early David asks Aaron his thoughts on if there is the potential for a Captain Pike Discovery spin off show. Pour yourself a tankard of mead and grab yourself a side of Elk it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 169: Hope and Fear

Episode 169: Hope and Fear

Episode 169: Hope and Fear

Holly Michelle is back joining David and Aaron on a discussion of the Star Trek Voyager season four finale “Hope and Fear”! This week there isn’t much news but we do have a long listener email that we do read and respond to this episode. This episode is one of the few Star Trek season finales that aren’t set up to be a mid season cliffhanger.

In “Hope and Fear” Ray Wise guest stars as Arturis an alien who claims to be a walking universal translator. Arturis helps decode a transmission from Starfleet that leads the Voyager crew to a ship the USS Dauntless. The USS Dauntless is equipped with a slipstream drive to get Voyager home in just three months! Is Arturis really a nice guy, is this just too good to be true? You might want to slipstream some booze in to your coffee to find this out, on your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 160: The Prime Directive Part 5 VOY Era

Aaron and David are back once again to discuss The Prime Directive. It’s the last time we swear! (for now anyway) Before we get into the prime directive we have a listener email and we thought we’d let you know Synthaholics Podcast has just turned three years old! Thank you to those that have been with us since the beginning! Last time we started on the Voyager era of prime directive breaks and this week we finish out Star Trek Voyager and tally up what show was had the most prime directive infractions! This week we discuss “Innocence”, “False Profits”, “Scorpion”, “Course: Oblivion” and “Friendship One” to name a few. We hope you are ready for the 5th and final instalment of the Prime Directive!

Episode 159: The Prime Directive Part 4 DS9/VOY Era

How much do you love the rules? The boys are back again to dive back into the Prime Directive. This week we move into the TNG films, Deep Space Nine, and we start on the very long list that is Voyager! But before we get into this weeks topic Aaron and David discuss the Star Trek Discover deleted scene that was revealed at Wondercon this Past weekend. Once we get into the Voyager episodes Aaron has something very important he needs to gets off his chest and later David makes a very inappropriate joke at B’Elanna Torres expense. This week you’ll hear our take on “Insurrection”, “Nemesis”, “Emissary”, “The Circle”, “Caretaker”, “Prototype”, and “Threshold” to name a few of the times general order one may or may not have been violated by our heros! Might as well break out the Romulan Ale

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!

Synthaholics Episode 144: Janeway, Ransom, and the Equinox

Episode 144: Janeway, Ransom, and the Equinox

Episode 144: Janeway, Ransom, and the Equinox

This week we have a request to talk about the Star Trek Voyager Episode Equinox. This request came from the Synthaholics Facebook group around when Episode 4 of Star Trek Discovery aired. Comparisons were made between Captain Ransom and Lorca so we thought this would be a fun episode to touch on while Star Trek Discovery is still fresh in our minds. If you ever make contact with a green floating alien don’t try to make fuel out of it! If you are looking for drink ideas check out the Synthaholics YouTube channel. There you will find some drink to try while you enjoy your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 129: Message in a Bottle

Synthaholics Episode 129: Message in a Bottle

Synthaholics Episode 129: Message in a Bottle

Have you ever sent a Message in a Bottle? Well it doesn’t really seem Voyager really did on this episode with the same name. It seemed like it was maybe more like message in a doctor? That’s not the only part of the episode that doesn’t make sense.

But before we try to crawl backwards into the bottle, for news we talk a little about the Orville because I don’t think it is something we have really touched on. Black Mirror’s new season is mentioned because they have one episode for the upcoming season that is visually similar to Star Trek.

Star Trek Voyager’s Message in a Bottle guest stars Andy Dick as the EMH II. There is some great back and forth between Robert Picardo and Andy Dick that are some of the best parts of the episode. The B plot just feels kind of like a waste of time. Also why does sending a file cause the file to be lost? All this and more this week on Synthaholics your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Synthaholics Episode 125: The Killing Game with Adam Herr

Episode 125: The Killing Game with Adam Herr

Episode 125: The Killing Game with Adam Herr

This week Aaron and David discuss the Killing Game with Adam Herr. Adam Herr is a member of The Geekiverse and we’ve had different guests from the Geekivers in the past.

This week is an extra long episode clocking in at just over two hours because we have about 40 minutes of discussion of news and and rabbit holes. We finally get around to discussing the new SDCC Star Trek Discovery Trailer and get into some of the articles that have been released since SDCC.

Once we get past the news we talk about Adam’s favorite episode of Star Trek Voyager The Killing Game! This is a holodeck two parter episode where the Hirogen have taken over Voyager and forced Harry Kim to convert the ship into a giant holodeck. Meanwhile the Hirogen run programs where they can hunt the crew of Voyager over and over again. This is a fun episode as many of the hologram episodes tend to be. There are some strange leaps this episode makes and we have fun getting into all of them. Make whatever drink you are having a triple because this weekly shot of Star Trek is a long one!
