And we're finally back to talking about the force of nature that is the gravitational anomaly... only to learn that it's artificial DUM DUM DUM. Shocker. Mike and Johnson deliberate the facts and figures of "The Examples," which has us caring less about the actual examples and more about Culber and his C-level storyline. In other news - Michael Burnham and Book have a lot of gut wrenching to do over some typical Star Trek tropes, while Mike wants to shove our Risian guest star out of an airlock (TRIGGER WARNING!). As much as we love Star Trek, we can't help but gush about some of the other sci-fi we're watching right now, including The Witcher and The Expanse, in some scattered but well-intentioned off topic coverage.

Hey, dies ist mein Jahresrückblick 2021 mit Danksagung, Top-Liste der Veröffentlichungszahlen und natürlich ein bisschen Werbung für all meine Podcastproduktionen. Ich möchte mich in diesem Jahr für alle bisherigen Jahre und Podcasts bedanken, weil ich das noch nie auf diese Weise gemacht habe. Los geht's. Dankeschön, Kai Daniel Du, dass du mit mir Platz 11. ENT Every Needful Thing 2015 gemacht hast. Ich hatte viel Spaß daran, vor allem an der Geschichte über den French-Press-Kaffeebereiter. https://compendion.net/everyneedfulthing Ohne Platz 10. FLY Fireflycast 2014-2018 hätte ich Bastian Wölfle und Alexander Waschkau nicht so kennengelernt wie ich sie jetzt kenne. Dafür bin ich besonders dankbar, denn daraus sind großartige Freundschaften und weitere sehr schöne Projekte entstanden. https://compendion.net/fireflycast Ohne Felix Kling hätte ich Platz 9. UGI Und gut is' 2020 nicht gemacht und nie gewusst, wie nett das ist, einen täglichen Podcast zu machen und auch nicht, wie anstrengend, den jeden Tag mühsam händisch zu produzieren. Danke für dieses Erlebnis! https://compendion.net/undgutis Wow. Bei Platz 8. MWM Minutenweise Matrix 2018-2020 weiß ich gar nicht, wo ich anfangen soll mit meinem Dank. Jeden Werktag zwei Stunden Podcast zu produzieren war nicht nur für mich eine Belastung, sondern auch für meine Familie. Vielen Dank, dass ihr das mitgemacht habt.

Danke euch lieben Hörys, fürs Hören, für all euer Feedback und die Hinweise auf technische Schwierigkeiten, danke für eure Unterstützung!

Ende dieser Sendung). https://compendion.net/werkgetreujamescameron Lower Decks ist ja schon toll, aber Platz 4.

That being said, we loved the episode "All is Possible" as a whole, where we get some awesome character moments. And who else is on this Saru and T'Rina ship!?!?! We also say a bittersweet farewell to Tilly, at least for now.

Star Trek: Enterprise paved a lot of ground in its first season, creating characters and a history of Starfleet. However, it also dared to bring a regular cast member from another Star Trek series on board as a guest star, playing a character completely unrelated. We all know that the amazing René Auberjonois played Constable Odo for seven seasons on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, but many people forget he also played Ezral in the first season Enterprise episode, "Oasis." For the second anniversary of his passing, we'll consider this episode and what René brings to it specifically. Plus, we have a winner of some FanSets pins!

This week on Episode 533 of Priority One: ViacomCBS tries to make amends to the world; First Contact celebrates 25 years; Badgey finally makes it into Star Trek Online; and we continue our S4 review of Star Trek: Discovery! TREK IT OUT Edited by Thomas Reynolds How World War III Really Starts By Elio Lleo Before we left you for our Thanksgiving break, we reported that ViacomCBS had pulled Star Trek: Discovery from Netflix, leaving our friends outside of the US and Canada without a way to watch the latest season until sometime in 2022. Well, ViacomCBS has performed a massive international course correction. The fact that DSC was the fourth-most pirated series during Thanksgiving? Completely unrelated. Image: MUSO, via Deadline. Perhaps it was the international uproar. Perhaps it was because their poor planning was so misguided that it made headlines on news outlets like the BBC. Whatever the case may be, Paramount+ announced that Star Trek: Discovery will now be available internationally via Paramount+ or Pluto TV. You can find a detailed list of which platform in which country Discovery will be made available here.  Turbulence On Star Trek's Magic Carpet Ride By Elio Lleo It's been 25 years since Star Trek: First Contact premiered in movie theaters. Widely regarded as one of the best films of the franchise, its production wasn't entirely a walk in the park. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, writer Ronald D. Moore shares some behind the scenes stories about the film–including a clash with Sir Patrick Stewart.  According to Moore, Stewart wasn't too thrilled about some of the writing so he convinced Rick Berman to replace Moore and his co-writer Brannon Braga with some of his own writers. However, those new writers didn't quite work out…so Braga and Moore were brought back. Awkward. Even more awkward than this, apparently. Image: ViacomCBS, via TrekNews. Moore shares the story: "I remember Patrick at the outset just said something like: ‘It's good to see you. I hope that we can all move on from the things that have happened, and now let's just concentrate on the work.' And I took that in the spirit it was given: [He] wants to move on from this, he's not going to apologize outright, but he kind of is apologizing. And it was never spoken of again. So we just moved on." The Moore You Know Moore also spoke with SyFy about his work on the film. In this interview, there's more discussion about the actual development of the script and it's production. For instance, did you know that one of the original drafts had Riker as the action star–facing off against the Borg aboard the Enterprise. But Sir Patrick wanted in on the action–recalling the episode “Starship Mine.” They even toyed with the idea of setting the film in medieval times! Another version had Picard trying to find affordable rent in San Francisco. Image: ViacomCBS, via American Cinematographer. When asked about scenes for stories that he wished hadn't been cut, Moore explains: "There were just expanded sequences. There was just more action in general, more fighting the Borg in the corridors, and going into different places on the ship. And I think there was more humor. A lot of the jokes got cut down. I think we had more fun with Troi (Marina Sirtis) and Cochrane's relationship on Earth, where he gets her drunk. We had more to that sequence scripted and that was fun to write, too. Rick might have made us cut it because he was always a little too–he was always kind of worried that maybe the humor would be too corny or something." The Other Kind of Star Trek Royalty One aspect of the film that Trekkies like to debate is the introduction of the Borg Queen. Well, Trekkies aren't the only ones that debated her introduction. According to Moore: "...it was a choice that was also antithetical to the idea of the Borg. The whole concept of these villains was that they were a collection, and that there were no individuals. And that's what made them the faceless, implacable 'resistance is futile' enemy. But it also limited how to deal with them dramatically…[s]o we really went back and forth about it internally…[w]e decided that the story would be better if we had some individual to deal with." Comparing thee to a summer's day, you're making everyone overly sweaty. Image: ViacomCBS, via American Cinematographer. "To craft scenes around, to do an intimate kind of dialogue back and forth and help get inside characters' heads–like Data in particular, and Picard. So what we came up with...a Borg Queen that controlled at least this collective of that particular ship, not necessarily that she was the queen of the whole Borg…" For more insight about the film and its production process, be sure to Trek Out both interviews. Whoopi Brings Trek Full Circle By Cat Hough Well, while we're talking about Picard: the next season is premiering in February, and we're getting bits of information about the upcoming season, including Michelle Hurd's view on working with Whoopi Goldberg.  Michelle Hurd told a fan via Cameo what filming Picard Season 2 was like, saying “I pinch myself. I am a fan too, I literally pinch myself when on set or get to work with these amazing iconic creatures.” She was referring to both John de Lancie's return as Q and Goldberg's return as Guinan. Hurd went on to say that working with Goldberg was, “the bomb. She is SO cool. She is just cool, she is just Whoopi. That's all you can say.” Of course, not everyone's working relationship was as cordial. Image: ViacomCBS, via Agony Booth. Not much is known about how Guinan may fit into Season 2 of Picard. We know that her character has demonstrated a special ability to sense changes in timelines, which could factor into the time travel and alternate timelines featured in the upcoming season.  Speaking of Whoopi, she interviewed Sonequa Martin-Green on The View recently, and if you haven't had a chance to watch it, you really should. Martin-Green includes a very touching acknowledgement to Goldberg's history on Star Trek and how she and Nichelle Nicols paved the way for her to take on the Captain role on Discovery. Martin-Green told Goldberg, “I am your accomplishment, and I thank you.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X25gVG34L-0 Quick News Roundup Now, here are a few headlines that we didn't discuss but might interest you.  If you haven't signed up for Paramount+ but have been eager to share Star Trek: Prodigy with your kids, then set your set-top-boxes and TiVos to record the Nickelodeon premiere happening Friday, December 17th at 8pm ET/7pm CT. Speaking of Prodigy, if you're eager to continue the adventure, you'll have to wait until January 6, 2022 for episode 6.  IDW Publishing announced it would release Star Trek: Klingons in February 2022. This comic book series will chronicle the legendary life of Kahless, the Unforgettable [wait, who?--Ed.]. This release will be the first installment in a series of extra-long one-shots spotlighting the Star Trek franchise's most iconic alien species. It's written by Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly and features artist Timothy Green II. In an excellent in-depth interview, featured as a part of Rolling Stone's Last Word series, LeVar Burton reflects on his Jeopardy! experience, the magic of Star Trek conventions, the lasting importance of Roots, and the advice he got from his friend Fred Rogers–so make sure to trek out the link in our show notes. STAR TREK GAMING NEWS Edited by Thomas Reynolds Has Q Found Some Chill At Last? (No.) By Cat Hough https://youtu.be/cJMGnx7_ZKA It's that time of year again, again. Time to get those scarves and sweaters and head to Q's Winter Wonderland, where you can participate in your choice of Winter Wonderland Activities and get a new Tier 6 Starship…that had yet to be announced at the time of this recording [It was announced as the cross-faction Eisenberg-class Star Cruiser on Cryptic's Ten Forward Weekly stream the following day, December 1st–Ed.] This means that, just like last year, Daily Progress toward earning your new starship can be obtained by participating in any of the following activities: Fastest Game on Ice Klingon Ice Fishing Tides of Ice The Fast and the Flurrious Cones of Conduct The Kramp'Ihri  That's not a mistaken date; 2020 will simply never end. Image: Cryptic Studios. Once you run one of those events to earn your Daily Progress, you will also get various Holiday Ornaments, used in different combinations to purchase things in the Winter Event store. New this year: Glacial Nanopulse Bat'leth, because revenge is a dish…well, you get it. The Warnog Rescue Targ and the Barrel of Warnog. Exactly what it sounds like: it's a barrel, full of warnog. Lower Decks-themed sweaters, including ones from the Chu Chu Dance, The Dog, Badgey, and everyone's favorite evil Jeffrey Combs computer, Agimus. This year's epohh variant, the Glacial Epohh, is the same glorious glacial blue as the Bat'leth. Mmm. Minty. Image: Cryptic Studios. Well Someone's Going To Have A Blast A more surprising addition for this year's event is a new Breen Ground Set. The set centers on cold damage, specifically a new Polar Blast ability: a cold damage AOE  centered on a single target. Breen Cryoshaper Armor [HP] [Mob] [ResEn] ∞ [Active] Ablative Ice Shield generates a shield of ablative ice, providing temporary Health] that grows each time the wielder deals Cold damage, with the extra Health based on Cold damage dealt. [Passive] Massive Control Resist grants very high fire and cold resist, moderate energy resist, and light physical/kinetic resist Breen Cryoshaper Personal Shield [Reg]x3 ∞ When the shield is broken, deals a Polar Blast to whatever broke it.  Breen Cryoshaper Universal Kit Frame +Kit Performance +Cold Damage Using a Cold Kit Module deals a Polar Blast to the primary target. Breen Cryoshaper Thermal Depletion Pistol [CrtH] [Dmg]x2 ∞ Deals Cold Damage Secondary fire: a Polar Blast to three targets in a cone Set Bonuses 2 Pieces +50% Temp Health gained from Cryobarrier Polar Blasts slow Foes and gain a 10% chance per Foe hit to spawn another Polar Blast 3 Pieces Dealing Cold Damage to an enemy debuffs its Cold Damage Resistance Rating 4 Pieces Cryoshaper Weapon primary attack gains 100% weapon firing cycle speed Plot twist: all four of these models are also Jeffrey Combs. Image: Cryptic Studios. Q's Winter Wonderland will be available from December 7th, 2021 to January 6th, 2022. This event will run simultaneously across all platforms (PC and console).  STO Looks Into The Crystal Ball Sphere By Cat Hough In a recent interview with StarTrek.com, Design Director Al Rivera and Staff Writer Paul Reed discuss what it was like to incorporate Star Trek: Discovery into Star Trek Online. The two discussed their initial reactions to hearing about the new show and how having new content to draw from and how that has helped add more content to the game.  Because Captains in the game have gone to all four quadrants, made peace with the Founders, saved time itself, and even won, barely, a war against the ancient Iconians, having new Star Trek shows like Discovery gives the team that extra bit of inspiration. Reed already has an interesting idea for how to tie the lore into the far future setting of Discovery's third and fourth seasons. “Say for example, are the Iconians still around in that time era? And if so, what are they doing? Have they evolved? Have they changed? Are they still mad? It's been a long time, but I'd like to go into some pockets of our lore in that far future and then tie in with the Discovery team in some way. So, seeing how the Iconians handled the Burn for example would be pretty cool.”  Then again, how can you possibly top this? Image: Cryptic Studios, via StarTrek.com Rivera had some of his own ideas for stories to tap into. “And they got all the Sphere data, what was that about? That's a perfect example of a story where we can jump off of and talk about what that was, or what's a gormagander? Let's talk about that. So there are opportunities there.” Well, we're excited to play all of these stories in-game. Anytime now. Cheers to Club 47! By Elio Lleo In a recent tweet, Environment Artist Nick Duigid reminisced about the launch of Club 47 on ESD seven years ago! Nick says it doesn't get much traffic these days–but the launch party looked like a really good time.  https://twitter.com/Tumerboy/status/1462211110514266112?s=20

(This episode has been tagged as explicit for adult language.) You'd think that after 55 years, we'd know just about everything about the making of Star Trek, right? Guess again! This week, we're joined by Brian Volk-Weiss--producer and director of a brand new docu-series airing on the History Channel, "The Center Seat: 55 Years of Star Trek." We'll discuss getting this 10 episode series made and hear some of the stories around its production--some of which haven't been heard very often in the last half century. Plus, we'll hear about some of the items in Brian's collection and how his fandom started--and maybe he'll even give Bill a new reason to watch Star Trek: Generations? Oh, and by the way, there MIGHT be a surprise giveaway this week--be sure to listen for details!

This week, Dan, Sara and Kasey talk all about Star Trek Discovery's Season 4 emotional second episode "Anomaly".  Book is hurting.  Bad.  Like a lot!  His planet is gone and he has cut himself off from everyone, even Burnham.  But he quickly volunteers for a dangerous mission to gather info on the anomaly.  He will need help, so Stamets joins him on the away mission - sort of. Plus, Saru returns to the Discovery as its new First Officer and is helping just about everyone with words of wisdom, while Adira helps Gray with his trepidation about being incorporated into a synthetic body and finally becoming 'alive' again. This emotionally charged episode gave us lots to talk about, so we hope you will join us for some fun discussion!   FIVE YEAR MISSION Music for Discovering Trek is provided by Five Year Mission. They're writing one song for each episode of The Original Series! Plus, check out their podcast right here on the Trek Geeks Podcast Network!

70. Star Trek: The Next Generation, Harvey Wallbanger

Phil and Jake are joined by friend-of-the-pod and fandom specialist Melissa B. to rank Star Trek: The Next Generation, and the mixed drink known as the Harvey Wallbanger on the List of Every Damn Thing.Check out Melissa's reviews on the Comic News Insider podcast, find her on Instagram, and follow her work on Can the Replicator Make This? and Outside ComicCon.If you have something to add to the list, email it to list@everydamnthing.net (or get at us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).SHOW NOTES: Melissa is also on the Board of Directors of the West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame, and we talk a bit about racing at the beginning of the episode.  Pixar's Cars remains the thing Phil is most prepared to talk about. Why are there military vehicles in this world? Why are there ambulances for that matter? Why school buses?  Phil mentions a scene in the Brave Little Toaster where appliances at a junkyard sing a sad song. This page from Mike Mulligan and the Steam Shovel which also makes him sad. We discuss a number of other Star Trek properties, including the movies, as well as Star Trek: The Original Series, Deep Space Nine, Lower Decks and Picard. Of course we talk about the Star Trek: The Next Generation pinball game, which comes in second place on the Internet Pinball Database list of Top 300 Electronic Pinball Machines. “Darmok” is Phil's favorite episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation (although he's only seen a few). It's about understanding people and learning how to listen. It's kind of like the thinking man's version of the episode from Star Trek: The Original Series where Kirk fights a lizard man (and you can see cars on the highway in the background).  The SF Chronicle's little man dates all the way back to the 1940s! Sir Patrick Stewart is the true star of Star Trek: the Next Generation. When he's not on screen Phil & Jake immediately lose interest. Phil's feelings towards Data probably aren't going to date well.  In related news, Sophia the android (who, of course, you can follow on twitter) probably wouldn't enjoy our episode on the uncanny valley effect very much (because she's a robot and can't experience enjoyment). Because the episode wouldn't be complete without it, we do mention both the Borg and the character of Q (no relation to QAnon). There are channels on YouTube of just ambient starship background noise. Here's one of the ship from Star Trek: the Next Generation. In Star Trek: TNG the crew of the ship sometimes go into a virtual reality type room for training or recreation, called the Holodeck. They solve mysteries as Sherlock Holmes, etc,,, whatever they have wardrobe and sets for at Paramount. Phil doesn't like it because the whole point of watching a TV show about travelling through space would presumably be to see people traveling through space. If he wanted to see a Sherlock Holmes-based TV show he'd watch one of those. Melissa has some real issues with the TNG episode “Sub Rosa” in which Dr. Crusher falls in love with her dead grandmother's candle ghost lover. We mention the character Geordi La Forge, who was born without sight but futuristic technology allows him to see. Phil's wonderful wife Beth mentioned that Deanna Troi's hair is not her real hair. This is the latest in a series of outrages along the lines of when she told him that Kiefer Sutherland is wearing a wig in the Lost Boys (which is partially true) and that Lynda Carter's butt was padded in Wonder Woman. Jake tried out the Harvey Wallbanger at Whitechapel, a London-themed steampunk-adjacent gin-centric cocktail bar in San Francisco. One of us claims that Galliano-- the liquor most known for its use in the Harvey Wallbanger-- is also used to make a Sex On the Beach, but afterwords we couldn't find any recipes supporting that claim.
