Are you stuck spending a lot of time at home now because of social distancing, working from home, unemployment, etc? Sad that it’s Summer and all your favorite shows are on hiatus? Why not watch Star Trek! Now is the perfect time to enjoy your favorite Sci Fi franchise and our hosts dive into why they think that is. 🙂 Enjoy!
Are you excited about the return of Captain Picard?!?! We are!! Do you have a friend/spouse/pet who might need a little refresher course on who this Picard guy is and what the heck is going on with these Borg people? Well, we put together a list of episodes to watch while you’re waiting. Think of it as a little Star Trek Picard primer based on what we know so far about the show. You have a few months to get ready but if you don’t want to marathon all of TNG & Voyager, this watch list should help. 🙂
First– the basics. You’ll be introduced to Captain Picard, Data, and the Borg.
– Star Trek TNG – S1. E13. Datalore
– Star Trek TNG – S2. E9. Measure of a Man.
– Star Trek TNG – S3. E26. & S4. E1. Best of Both Worlds (parts 1 & 2)
– Star Trek TNG – S4. E2. Family
– Star Trek TNG – S4. E3. Brothers
– Star Trek TNG – S5. E23. I Borg
– Star Trek TNG – S5. E25. The Inner Light
– Star Trek TNG – S6. E15. Tapestry
– Star Trek TNG – S6. E26. & S7. E1. Descent (parts 1 & 2)
– Star Trek TNG- S7. E25 & 26. All Good Things (parts 1 & 2)
– Star Trek: Generations
– Star Trek: First Contact
Then you’ll want to know who Seven on Nine is!
– Star Trek VOY – S3. E26. & S4. E1. Scorpion (parts 1 & 2)
– Star Trek VOY – S4. E2. The Gift
– Star Trek VOY – S6. E16. Collective
– Star Trek VOY – S7. E18 Human Error
– Star Trek VOY – S7. E 25 & 26. Endgame (pats 1 & 2)
Then wrap up the Picard & Data story
– Star Trek: Nemesis
Finally, I think the 24th-century events in this film will matter a lot– specifically what happens to the planet Romulus.
– Star Trek (2009)
In today’s episode, we’re sucked into a hole in space and forced to watch “Where Silence Has Lease”! Mike, Erin & Ben have some laughs at this weak episode and totally ‘ship Riker & Worf #Rorf “ONE RIKER ONE BRIDGE”
It’s a whole new season!! Welcome to season TWO of our TNG Re-watch Project. Counselor Troi is having a miracle baby, there’s a new Doctor on board, the Enterprise has been redecorated and there’s finally a bar in the neighborhood!! Let’s watch “The Child”together, shall we? 🙂
We finally reach the end of Season One of Star Trek The Next Generation. But before we wrap up this season we need to discuss The Neutral Zone! What would happen if you took some people from the 20th century and dump them onto the USS Enterprise D??
The gang is all back together!! Mike, Erin & Ben are conspiring about something alright. Or have they just been taken over my symbiotic aliens bent on galactic domination?? Pull up a bowl of worms and tune in to find out!
Mike and Ben step into a holodeck recreation of a cafe in Paris this week to take a look at this season one episode where instead of looking at the fascinating possibilities of the multiverse, we spend an hour talking about one of Picard’s lost loves. Is that a guy slowly stroking test tubes in the corner??
Well, we all knew we’d get there one day. It’s finally time to talk about Tasha’s death by oil slick. It’s might not be the best way to go but you can’t deny that it’s a very “Star Trek” way for a security guard on a landing party to die.
Mike and Erin dive into this classic episode to see if it holds up to the passage of tiem.
It’s that time of year again! Unlike our friends over in the Star Wars fandom, we don’t have a Holiday Special to watch. We’re left searching for some hint of Christmas (or Life Day) in Trek. There are a few times our characters acknowledge Christmas and one time they had a full-out office holiday party! Ok, that only happens in the comic book but still– it happened!! We also cover William Shatner’s new album “Shatner Claus” which you can buy here if you like!
