The Ferengi return, and they’ve brought a present! When Captain Picard is given the hull of his old command, the USS Stargazer, he gets so emotional that he starts suffering from crippling headaches. I wonder what that device is, the one that the Ferengi Daimon keeps massaging and muttering about?
Our very first guest! In this episode, YouTuber Modi Operandus joins us to discuss the sexy episode that is “Justice”. I think we can all agree that, despite the threat of immediate execution for even the tiniest infraction, a planet filled with beautiful people who have sex at the “drop of a hat” can’t be all that bad of a place. Nice planet.
Hey man, Captain Picard just wants to explore the universe. Who are we to stop him? Oh, you mean he’s not actually himself since he’s been taken over by a ball of energy? And we need to deliver two enemy factions to a distant planet before they eat each other? And this is the first episode with a B storyline? Uh oh.
We have seen the edge of the universe, and it is colorful. When an alien known as The Traveler sends the Enterprise to the farthest reaches of the universe, the crew is forced to deal with a very long journey home. Fortunately, Wesley Crusher is going to become a super genius! Maybe he’ll be able to somehow save the day…?
“The Last Outpost” is the introduction of the Ferengi, an alien race obsessed with profit. Originally intended to become the chief antagonist of The Next Generation, the big-eared Ferengi instead became comic relief as the series progressed. This episode of the podcast is a “Portal” into the minds of a strange, goblin-like race.
Like Omar from “The Wire” said, a man’s “got to have a code.” This episode, “Code of Honor”, is infamous for numerous reasons and resulted in the original director being fired by Gene Roddenberry before filming was complete. It also features Tasha Yar in a fight to the death! Exciting!
What does the crew of a starship act like when they get drunk? Is Riker simply too manly to even get drunk in the first place? “The Naked Now” takes an Original Series episode and has the new crew kick the tires. Is it any good?
We take a look at The Next Generation’s pilot, “Encounter at Farpoint”. Watched by over 30 million (!) people in 1987, this episode introduces the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D. Led by Captain Jean-Luc Picard, the officers and crew of the Enterprise embark on their first mission by heading to the mysterious Farpoint Station.
The inaugural episode of my Star Trek: The Next Generation podcast! This series is going to look at all 178 episodes of the classic sci-fi show that ran from 1987 to 1994. Each podcast will look at a specific episode of the show and break down what works, what doesn’t, and what makes this show one of my favorites of all time.
Titanfall is a 2014 first-person shooter developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts exclusively for Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. The footage shown during this video is the PC version, with all graphical settings on “high”. There is an ultra setting, but unfortunately that asks a bit too much of my PC. Maybe after all that sweet internet YouTube money starts rolling in and I can buy one of the computers they use at NASA, I’ll revise the video accordingly.
