Episode 23: Remember the Time Wesley Almost Got Down with Ashley Judd?

Transporter Room 3 has fully recovered from our wee 'bout of Memorial Day Shore Leave, where we got hooked on Riker's game from Risa! Which is a bush-league segue into our topic of discussion -- the Season 5 Next Gen episode, "The Game." Remember that little gem?

Riker's "second brain" almost brings about the umpteenth invasion of the Federation when he brings back a game from Risa that's half Virtual Boy, half cocaine, all cop! Ashley Judd and Wesley Crusher are our only hope against some 8-bit Frisbees flying into blue tubas. Is it the worst episode ever? Its cousin? Tune in to find out!

"Let's do this thing, boy."
On the news front, Simon Pegg bangs the war drums and decrees that the villain in Star Trek 2 is NOT Khan. (Cough, horses#!t, end cough.) Riker pays a visit to the set of Star Trek 2 and Geordi gets rear-ended by the LAPD. (And we thought La Forge was the blind guy -- hiyo! *dodges tomatoes*). Lastly, we lower the Federation flag to half-mast and honor another fallen Red Shirt, this one from the Enterprise-D. So technically, a yellow shirt. Whatever -- you can change a tiger's stripes but blah blah… still human cannon fodder.

  5. During this episode, I can here Phil in the background cooking something. You can hear him turn the gas stove on and then a little bit later his mouth is obviously full of something? Soup? Lol!
