Synthaholics Episode 119: Michele Specht and The Offspring

Aaron, Guy, and David are joined this week by Michele Specht to talk The Offspring. Before we get into the main topic we talk a little bit about Star Trek Continues and how the last three episodes will be debuting at Florida Supercon, Salt Lake Comic Con, and New York Comic Con. The Offspring is a Star Trek The Next Generation season 3 episode. A year and three months ago the last time we had Michele on the show, she told us this was her favorite Star Trek episode. So we had to have her back on the show so we talk with her about The Offspring. You should grab a box of tissues to keep them by your drink you’ll probably need them for this week’s shot of Star Trek!

Episode 118: Wild Hologram Virtuoso

Synthaholics Episode 118: Wild Hologram Virtuoso

Synthaholics Episode 118: Wild Hologram Virtuoso

Have you seen the Wild Hologram Virtuoso? This week we talk about the Star Trek Voyager Episode Virtuoso where the doctor gets a bit wild to the point of resigning his commission to be a professional singer to a race that finds him to be a primitive holo matrix. After hearing Erin Gray audition for Janeway on Voyager David can’t watch Voyager without thinking about that. Aaron brings up what it must be like for the doctor where none of his friends seem to appreciate his other talents and skill other than doctoring. So we both talk times in our life where our talents may not have been appreciated. This discussion leads into some thoughts about our education system as a whole. Virtuoso brings up some of the same thoughts and ideas about the personhood and the sentience of holographic beings that were brought out last week on Holograms Gone Wild. We hope you enjoy your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 117: Star Trek Holograms Gone Wild

Synthaholics Episode 117: Star Trek Holograms Gone Wild

Synthaholics Episode 117: Star Trek Holograms Gone Wild

This week Aaron and David delve into the world of Star Trek Holograms Gone Wild this is something we teased way back in the earliest days of the podcast and we are now bringing it to you! For this first holograms gone wild we thought we’d talk about the two Star Trek The Next Generation Episodes that involve Professor James Moriarty “Elementary, Dear Data” and “Ship in a bottle”! These are two fascinating episodes of Star Trek and bring up interesting moral dilemmas such as; are holograms actual life forms, at what point does artificial intelligence become sentient, and are their any safeguards being considered to prevent this from happening? We hope this episode inspires you to watch these two episodes back to back it really is a fantastic way to see“Elementary, Dear Data” and “Ship in a bottle”. What are you having to drink with your weekly shot of Star Trek?

Episode 116: Star Trek DS9 The Jem’Hadar

Synthaholics Episode 116: Star Trek DS9 The Jem’Hadar

Synthaholics Episode 116: Star Trek DS9 The Jem’Hadar

This week we talk the Star Trek DS9 episode The Jem’Hadar. This is the season two finale for Deep Space Nine and and our first good look at two of the major players for the Dominion, the Jem’Hadar and the Vorta! But before we talk The Jem’Hadar we reflect on our weekend at Nickel City Con and talk a little bit more about our experience there as well.David wildly speculates about Voyager after mentioning the segment you all heard last week with Erin Gray. The Dominion the Vorta and the Jem’Hadar seem wildly overpowered and are scarier in this episode then they seem to be going forward. To wrap up we also talk bridge design pointing out the Enterprise and Odyssey have different bridges so it’s totally feasible for the USS Shenzhou’s bridge to look very different from the pike era Enterprise. Make sure you prep your jambalaya before you go camping, and don’t forget the alcohol! It’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Synthaholics Episode 115: Nichelle Nichols, J.G. Hertzler, and Erin Gray at Nickel City Con

This week we were honored to get to talk with Nichelle Nichols, J.G. Hertzler, and Erin Gray at Nickel City Con!  The Nickel City Con was such a blast this year, Aaron was at his table for Numina Comics and David was able to host a panel with Erin Gray. In addition to the celebrities, we were also able to speak with artists and con goers who were attending the convention to ask their thoughts about the Star Trek Discovery trailer that just aired last week.  We got to hear from a variety of people ranging from non fans of Star Trek all the way up to people in full on Star Trek cosplay. We hope you enjoy this week’s comic con 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 111: The Suffering of O’Brien Part 2: Hard Time

Hard Time The Suffering of O'Brien

Episode 111: The Suffering of O’Brien Part 2: Hard Time

Miles Edward O’Brien is facing hard time in Deep Space Nine. This might be one of his hardest times! This week we talk about The Star Trek Deep Space Nine season four episode Hard Time. Aaron and David first talk some limited Trek news before delving into this week’s episode. Hard Time really gets the Synthaholics diving into a discussion on mental health, the justice system and the prison system. We still keep the humor coming but this is a bit on the deeper side of Synthaholics! After you get out of a 20 year jail sentence what is the first thing you get to drink? If you guest Synthale you are probably Irish! Personally I’d for for something harder but you choose whatever wets your whistle because it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 110: Star Trek The Disease

Disease

Episode 110: Star Trek The Disease

This week Aaron and David are alone to talk about Star Trek Voyager season 5 episode The Disease. We wanted to get into this episode because we referenced it the last time we spoke about Voyager in the Nightingale episode. Two is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do when you are Harry Kim and there is no reason you can’t be together in the story. He can’t be with his love because of silly 90’s television rules! This is a surprisingly strong episode of Voyager even though it is a Kim strong episode. We have fun discussing the episode and making up silly words for the parts of love! Aaron brings it with some great background info The Disease’s two main guest stars be sure to listen till the end to hear these. There are no borg in this episode but we did have a Borg Queen Martini to drink. You know the drill mix or pour yourself a drink because it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek.
