Episode 170: The Practical Joker and Emails

Episode 170: The Practical Joker and Emails

Aaron and David discuss the Star Trek animated series episode “The Practical Joker”. This week we also received two new emails and we read and answer both after the recap and discussion of “The Practical Joker.” But before we get to “The Practical Joker”  we discuss the Star Trek Discovery news that the showrunners Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts have been fired by CBS and are now longer working on Star Trek Discovery. Alex Kurtzman will be taking over as showrunner so Aaron and I also discuss our thoughts on that as well.

Did you ever think the USS Enterprise could or would have a sense of humor? It’s not something I have ever thought about but apparently some people did back in the 70s and this is how we got The Practical Joker! Also if you tweet be sure to twitter bomb Star Trek and Star Trek Discovery to #BringBackSybok and #WhereIsSybok. I recommend you pour yourself something strong. 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 168: Dixon Hill

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

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 162: HollyMichelle on Discovery Part 1

Episode 162: HollyMichelle on Discovery Part 1

Last week HollyMichelle had just one episode of Star Trek Discovery under her belt this week she has seen up to episode 6 Lethe. So David and Aaron decided to get her take on Discovery now that he has made it just over one third of the way into the show. Last week HollyMichelle posted a video along with needed words for a Star Trek Themed madlib to our Facebook Group. It hasn’t been completed yet so we did our own madlib and started the show with that. We had a really fun discussion with HollyMichelle about the first six episodes and got her thoughts and feelings on the show so far. We are looking forward to do part two of this discussion once she has finished the show. If you have bloodwine you should pour a glass it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 161: DS9 The House of Quark

Episode161DS9House Of Quark

Episode 161: DS9 The House of Quark

This week Holly Michelle joins Aaron and David to talk the Star Trek Deep Space Nine Episode House of Quark. Before we get into the episode we have some Star Trek Discovery news. Anson Mount Black Bolt himself has been cast as Christopher Pike for Season two of Star Trek Discovery. We also got strange news with next to no explanation that the enterprise had to be 25% due to “legal reasons”. We all found this to sound pretty suspect. Our house of Quark discussion goes pretty fast as it is more a fun episode then a deep episode. Holly brings up how Grelka is a strong female character so we have a general discussion about female leads in Star Trek. Why do you sit back and grab a Synthale it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek

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!
