Episode 22: Star Trek Civil War!

We love Star Trek obviously. This podcast and the bedside jars of tears are proof of that. BUT we don't always love it equally, or share the same care space for certain episodes.


One episode in particular: "Conspiracy," from Season 1 of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Phil thinks Picard going all redrum on Starfleet officers possessed by alien cocktail shrimp* is kinda fun. Scott thinks Phil needs the stupid phaser'd out of him.

So watch with your ears, as we enter Nerd Thunderdome and clash over the merits of 25-year-old television with the gusto of warrior virgins poets.

Also this week, we catch up with all the Trek news of the last few time cycles -- from Leonard Nimoy teasing a return to J.J. Abrams' Star Trek to Leonard Nimoy teasing a version of Star Trek V that we never saw. We end the nerdcast with a 21-phaser salute in honor of our latest Red Shirt of the Week: Hemdorf, from Winterfell The Original Series.

*Alien Cocktail Shrimp is the name of our new folktronica band. We're opening for Data's newest poetry recital in Ten Forward next week. Beam on down! [drops mic]*
