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 192: Realm of Fear

Episode 192: Realm of Fear

Episode 192: Realm of Fear

Arron, Holly, and David are back this week to talk the TNG Episode Realm of Fear! No Star Trek news this week but the next Short Trek will be out before we record next week so we should of that to talk about next week. Realm of Fear is one of the Next Generation Episodes that features Dwight Schultz as Barclay! Barclay is one of our favorite recurring characters in Star Trek, so it’s about time we do an episode that is all about him.

In this episode we learn Barclay has an extreme and possibly irrational fear of being transported. Barclay must overcome his fears to help solve the mystery about what happened to the USS Yosemite. Because this episode focuses on his fear that seems to be on the irrational side we get into a discussion on what some of our irrational fears are! Pour yourself a drink that will help calm your nerves it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 184: I Borg

Episode 184: I Borg

Episode 184: I Borg

The three Synthaholics are back on their regular schedule and no audio issues! This week they discuss I Borg from the 5th season of Star Trek The Next Generation. Before we get into the episode discussion we have some Star Trek Discovery news. At NYCC the second trailer for Star Trek Discovery dropped and we were all pretty blown away by it. Robbie from The Nerdynomicon Podcast joins us to discuss the trailer before beaming out. The first Short Trek Runaway is out and we got full spoilers on it. I Borg is a fantastic episode involving the borg and deals with the moral questions of how we may view our enemies. Check out the Synthaholics YouTube channel to learn how to make a Borg Queen Martini so you can drink along with your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 181: In a Mirror, Darkly

Episode 181: In a Mirror, Darkly

Episode 181: In a Mirror, Darkly

Last week Holly had some burning questions about the Tholians, so Aaron and David join Holly and  we take a look at the next time we see the Tholians “In a Mirror, Darkly”! Before we get into the episode Aaron has some news from the Star Trek Discovery cast fresh out of Fan Expo. “In a Mirror, Darkly” is a two part episode in Star Trek Enterprise’s fourth season. In this two parter we find out what happens with the Defiant after it was lost in interphasic space.

Oddly enough it ends up in the mirror universe 100 years in the past. After seeing Star Trek Discovery we all kind of scratch our heads at some of the actions that happen between the characters in this two parter. It seems at this time in the mirror universe everyone’s a little less murdery. Because there are multiple times in these episodes where character fight but they just let the loser live once they are beaten. But all in all we enjoyed “In a Mirror, Darkly”. Pour yourself a Gorn drink it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 177: Be Right Back

Episode 177: Be Right Back

Episode 177: Be Right Back

Holly Michelle is back this week to talk with Aaron and David about the Black Mirror Episode Be Right Back. Now don’t turn to a different podcast just yet! We very specifically picked this episode because if you listened to last week’s episode this episode fits in thematically to the discussion we had last week!

Be Right Back deals with grief and what that does to a person. It also confronts what if our personalities were put into a robot and will that be enough? After the episode recap we talk more about if we would want to live on after death so maybe our families will remember us and what the future may looks like to our descendants. We hope you held on tightly do your drink as we made that hard left turn into Black Mirror! At the top of the show we discuss the news of Patrick Stewart reprising his role as Jean-Luc Picard.

Episode 175: Time’s Arrow Featuring Jeff Heller

Aaron and David welcome Jeff Heller, of Film Dumpster, to the show to discuss the Star Trek TNG two parter Time’s Arrow. Before we get into the episode discussion Jeff talks to us about Film Dumpster and what they do there. San Diego Comic Con was this past week so we talk the trailers for Star Trek Discovery and The Orville season 2.

Jeff is a big fan of time travel so Time’s Arrow was a great episode to talk about. In this episode the crew of the enterprise go back in time to stop these soul sucking aliens and to find out why they found a 500 year old Data head. In this adventure they meet up with Ginun of the past, Jack London, and Mark Twain! Time to make yourself an Old Fashioned it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 171: The Ballad of Thomas Riker

Episode 171: The Ballad of Thomas Riker

Episode 171: The Ballad of Thomas Riker

What happens when transporter accidents don’t kill you? Aaron and David are here to recount the ballad of Thomas Riker. Some fates are worse than death, like being stuck alone for 8 years to find out that you actually did make it out. You could also be pining for a woman for 8 years just to find out she only wants to be friends. Or you could steal the most advanced federation warship and then turn yourself over to the Cardassians to work the rest of your days in a labor camp. You could also be promised a daring rescue by a woman who forgets about you when she falls in love with a changeling. The Ballad of Thomas Riker is one paved with much sorrow and regret!

But before we jump into Star Trek The Next Generation episode “Second Chances” and the DS9 episode “Defiant” we have some more exciting star trek news to talk about! You may wipe the sweat from your brow no animated series episode today! Pour yourself a double of whatever you are drinking, it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 170: The Practical Joker and Emails

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!
