Episode 132: Assignment Earth?

Episode 132: Assignment Earth?

Synthaholics Episode 132: Assignment Earth?

Do you remember that time Star Trek did a backdoor pilot back in the second season? David didn’t until Aaron suggested that we watch the original series episode Assignment Earth.

This episode centers around this cat named Isis and her human secret agent Gary Seven. The Enterprise some how intercepts their transporter beam while for some strange reason being on a mission to observe 1968. Assignment Earth is Star Trek the animated series level of strange! We are thankful there was a letter writing campaign to bring Star Trek back for a third season otherwise this could of been the series finale of the Original Series!

This episode has some very fascinating historical events happen close to the episodes release that were hinted at within the episode. Also is Gary Seven a Time Lord? If not then where did he get that Sonic Screwdriver? Pour yourself an extra strong drink it’s about to get weird on your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 130: Kipleigh Brown and James Kerwin return!

Episode 130: Kipleigh Brown and James Kerwin return!

Episode 130: Kipleigh Brown and James Kerwin return!

This week on Synthaholics guests Kipleigh Brown and James Kerwin return to talk Star Trek Continues. James Kerin directed and wrote the teleplay for the recent Star Trek Continues episode “Embracing the Winds”. Kipleigh Brown plays Smith on Star Trek Continues and she wrote the teleplay for the most recent episode “What Ships Are For”. We found out the cast and crew recently had screenings of “What Ships Are For” at ILM and and Pixar so we got to hear about that. Writing becomes a major topic of the episode and this gets us sidetracked into discussing recent science fiction film! It was an absolute pleasure having Kipleigh and James join us this week, so we hope you enjoy this extra special 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 128: Explorers with Andrew Dumais

Episode 128: Explorers with Andrew Dumais

Synthaholics Episode 128:  Explorers with Andrew Dumais

This week we talk the Deep Space Nine episode Explorers with Andrew Dumais. Andrew has been a past guest on the show. He was on our episode about The Doctors and our Religion and Star Trek episode. We hope you enjoyed the Ben and Jake Sisko bit Aaron and David did back on our episode about the Jem’Hadar because that bit is back in a big way!

Before we get into the episode we talk some Star Trek news mostly dealing with Star Trek Discovery’s Jason Isaacs. Over the past week or so he has made a wave in the Star Trek community with some of his fascinating comments.

This episode heavily features the father and son dynamic so after the main episode discussion Aaron poses the question to Andrew and David if they had any memorable times with their fathers. Once we answer we turn the question to Aaron and his is probably one of the more interesting stories that we get to hear. Where’s the rum you are gonna need it on this solar sail ship because it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Synthaholics Episode 127: The Ballad of Harry Mudd

 Episode 127: The Ballad of Harry Mudd

Synthaholics Episode 127: The Ballad of Harry Mudd

This week we discuss the Ballad of Harry Mudd. Harcourt Fenton Mudd appeared three times in Star Trek’s past and will be appearing in the upcoming Star Trek Discovery. So in preparation we are talking about the Star Trek The Original Series episodes Mudd’s Women and I, Mudd as well as the Star Trek Animated Series episode Mudd’s Passion.

Before we get started we talk about the unfortunate news of LeVar Burton being sued over a catch phrase. After the news we quickly give the synopsis for each of the three episodes then get deep into our Mudd discussion. Harry is a really fun character even if his episodes weren’t the greatest.

We are excited to see how Rainn Wilson’s take on Mudd will be in Discovery and we are very much hoping his personality will be intact. It’s that time of the week again break out the liquors and make your favorite drinks because it’s time for 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!

Episode 124: Enterprise Twilight

Episode 124: Enterprise Twilight

Synthaholics Episode 124: Enterprise Twilight

Remember the Star Trek Enterprise Twilight where a space anomaly gave poor archer brain parasites that were out of phase with time?  This basically makes Archer like the guy in the movie Memento!

Without being able to form new memories Archer can no longer command the Enterprise and this leads to many disasters. But before we get into the episode we talk about some of the props, costumes and ships that were shown off at San Diego Comic Con. Alas we recorded the episode early so we didn’t get to talk about the new trailer this week.

Be sure to listen next week as we will be talking about that new trailer then! Would you give up being able to form new memories if you had T’Pol taking care of you the rest of your life? We ask and answer that question and more on your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Synthaholics Episode 122: The Suffering of O’Brien Part 3

Synthaholics Episode 122: The Suffering of O’Brien Part 3

Synthaholics Episode 122: The Suffering of O’Brien Part 3

It’s that time again it’s time to recount The Suffering of O’Brien Part 3. This week Aaron is back and we are discussing the Star Trek Deep Space Nine episode Whispers. Before we get into the episode we briefly discuss the elevator game and surprisingly it folds right into our topic for today. O’Brien has just returned from an away mission and everyone around his is acting strange. O’Brien believes something has taken over the crew of the station while he was away and he is trying to escape before he falls victim to whatever it is that has happened. But things are not as they seem! Once we recap the episode go into our thoughts on the episode and how this was a kind of missed opportunity to follow up conspiracy. If you like coffee you should prepare your Jamaican blend double strong double sweet and double spiked! It’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 121: Trek Noobz 3 Q Who (with Chris Chavez)

This week Chris Chavez joins us as our Trek Noob to talk about Q Who one of the best Star Trek the Next Generation episodes of season 2! This week Aaron is on vacation and in his stead I have enlisted the help of former guest Natalie Schlichtmann to be my co-host this week! The little bit of news we have this week is the story that Star Trek Discovery will not be held to Roddenberry Rule of no conflict between starfleet officers. We discus this before getting into our main topic this week Q Who. Natalie is my Aaron surrogate and so she breaks down the episode for us and we discuss the ins and outs of this episode. Along the way Chris asks some great questions from his perspective as someone new to Star Trek. We hope you enjoy this next entry into the Trek Noobz series it’s always wonderful to have someone new fall in love with Star Trek! It’s time to pour yourself your favorite drink because it is time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!
