You can't always rely on the past in "Voyager" this week. First up, a seeming chance to get home is revealed only to be a chance to get a message home, until some science-fiction nonsense reveals that time might be an issue in "Eye of the Needle". After that, recollections are thrown into question, as is the talent of whoever designed this week's aliens in "Ex Post Facto". Also this week: Boston Vulcans, an absolutely idiotic conclusion, and trailers!

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?

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.

Note from the podcasts hosts: Unfortunately, the audio this week was a bit wonky. We appreciate your understanding and continued support! And we are already nearing the end of Prodigy Season 1!...Kind of. Mike and Johnson talk about the latest episode of the new series, which will be the second-to-last one before we take a two month break. Who is making these decisions!? Anyway, this week we ponder Dal's level of annoyance compared to the previous episode - while a BIT tolerable, other things make this episode a bit vexing... but that's ok! We also chat a bit of Star Trek news - which include an update that affects our Star Trek family internationally, and a brand new shiny pin that Mike has!

This week, on Episode 532 of Priority One: ViacomCBS upsets most of the world; Star Trek Explorer Magazine debuts; Star Trek Online introduces a new 32nd century starship–plus, we start our S4 review of Star Trek: Discovery. TREK IT OUT Edited by Thomas Reynolds Sheer ****ing Hubris, ViacomCBS By Cat Hough Well, the news broke early on Tuesday the 16th that international fans of Star Trek: Discovery will have to wait until 2022 to be able to watch Season 4–and then only watch it on Paramount+. Under the terms of an agreement finalized today between Netflix and ViacomCBS, Netflix will no longer be streaming the show. ViacomCBS was most likely pleased with the agreement since, under the 2017 deal that Les Moonves had set up with Netflix, CBS had agreed to pay the bulk of the show's costly budget for the overseas rights.  All images: ViacomCBS, via Imgur user SaysThePenguin. This should not be a huge surprise, though, given ViacomCBS's efforts to incentive subscribers to Paramount+. Back at the end of September The Original Series, Voyager, and Enterprise all left Netflix–Paramount+ is the only platform to watch these series.  All images: ViacomCBS, via Imgur user SaysThePenguin. But now that Netflix is out of the picture, the UK, Germany, Ireland, Austria and Switzerland will be the first international markets to stream Discovery on Paramount+. ViacomCBS has said that as part of an accelerated expansion they anticipate being in around 45 markets within the next year or so. No news on the release date for our Australian friends, though.  Star Trek 4 Hopes For Holiday Magic By Elio Lleo While we're on the topic of disappointing news, the 4th installment of Star Trek set in the Kelvin Timeline is being delayed again. Now, the new release date is slated for a holiday release on December 22, 2023 (originally, it was scheduled for June 9th, 2022). Perhaps the marketing folks at ViacomCBS listened to our episode where we discussed the uphill battle Star Trek faces when released beside other (more popular) franchises. Or they just read the same industry articles that we do. https://priorityonepodcast.com/530-treks-better-than-wars-thats-debatable-priority-one-a-roddenberry-star-trek-podcast/ Either way Star Trek, along with other tiles like Transformers, are being pushed. Now, this could be a rarely well executed smart move on behalf of the suits in charge of these things. According to Scott Mendelson of Forbes.com, Paramount+ is betting that Star Wars: Rogue Squadron won't be able to stick to their holiday 2023 release date–especially when there's been little movement on that Star Wars installment. That leaves Trek to reap the benefits of the season. Mendelson writes, “the optimistic scenario is that Star Trek 4 positions itself as the Christmas event movie of 2023 and proves to be crowd pleasing enough to allow holiday legs to give the struggling franchise a kick in the butt after a disappointing third installment. That's what happened with Paramount's own Mission: Impossible–Ghost Protocol in December 2011 after J.J. Abrams' underwhelming Mission: Impossible III 5.5 years earlier.” Either way, it's still two years away and a lot can change. However the film still has WandaVision director Matt Shakman at the helm. Del Barrio And Cronenberg Take Explorer To The Future By Rosco McQueen On November 17th, Blu Del Barrio will return in Discovery Season 4 as the human host of a Trill symbiote, Adira Tal.  In an interview with new publication Star Trek Explorer, Del Barrio spoke about the positive reactions from fans in being the first nonbinary actor in the franchise, and bringing a non-binary character to the screen. Unfortunately for the actor, it meant they were also subject to some outdated attitudes, but they were few when compared to the overall welcome from the Star Trek community. “There are always people who are going to set out to be hateful, and set out to be transphobic. There's not a lot of Star Trek fans who are like that, thank God. It's not a universe where that fits. But there is also a lot of love, even from people who maybe don't know anyone who is trans. There are people who are asking questions, talking about things online, having actual conversations about it, which is really wonderful.” Image: ViacomCBS, via CBR. Also featured in the first issue of the relaunched Star Trek Explorer is an interview with director David Cronenberg who plays the role of Federation agent Kovich, who is returning for Discovery Season 4.  The interview covers his relief as an actor as opposed to a director, growing up watching the Original Series, and the specific role of Kovich in season three as the Terran-interrogator.  But Cronenberg was tight lipped on what's in store for Season 4: “I can only tell you I've been invited to be part of Season 4, and I was delighted with that. That's about all I can tell you, and it's not because I'm trying to be coy. It's because I don't know any more.” For the full interview, as well as feature interviews from Ian Alexander (Gray Tal from Discovery), be sure to trek out the first issue of Star Trek Explorer. Quick News Roundup Now, here are a few headlines that we didn't discuss but might interest you.  Start applying for those passports and get your luggage ready, because we're going to China! Why? Because an $8 billion theme park resort is being built with a Paramount theme along the shores of Dianchi Lake in the Yunnan capital city of Kunming!  The complex will include six themed areas–one of which is a “Final Frontier–Star Trek” themed section! Fans of ‘Levar Burton hosting a quiz show' rejoice!  The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed the actor will host a gameshow based on ‘Trivial Pursuit', produced by Hasbro and Entertainment One. No network is attached at the time of the announcement, with no information on when the program will debut.   Congrats to Star Trek alum Tracee Lee Cocco! She just announced that she'll be featured in an upcoming Star Trek: The Next Generation book by Ian Spelling, due to release in the fall of 2022.

If you've been hanging onto some Ultra Rare tokens, now is the time to redeem them for an Experimental Upgrade Token. Also on sale right now until the 22nd–Keys and Keyring Bundles are 15% off!  YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TOOTH By Cat Hough Hey, surprise! Another new ship is available via the Infinity Lock Box. The United Earth Defense Force Vessel [T6] was designed as a large, sturdy vessel built for planetary defense and doesn't at all look like a giant tooth–or an elephant. Even the four blind men think it's an elephant. Image: Cryptic Studios. This ship features a Commander Tactical/Command Bridge Officer specialist seat, and a Lt. Commander Engineering / Command Bridge Officer specialist seat. With a 4/4 weapons layout and 5 tactical, 3 engineering and 3 science consoles.  It features the Mobile Defense Net Universal Console. With this technology equipped, your ship will be capable of generating a large area of protection for you and your allies, centered a short distance behind your vessel. This area moves with your ship, though you sacrifice maneuverability–but you are able to deactivate the field if you need to. This console also provides a passive bonus to Max and Current Shield Subsystem Power, and Maximum Shield Capacity. Image: Cryptic Studios. And once the ship is leveled up, you gain access to the Interlaced Emitters Starship Trait. While this Trait is slotted, activating any Bridge Officer abilities that restore shields to yourself or an ally will also briefly apply an effect that automatically redistributes the target's shields, provides shield hardness, and renders shields immune to drain effects. This effect may not be reapplied to a target until it has worn off. The “Duality” of Terror By Rosco McQueen More effective surprise attacks are coming your way in Star Trek Fleet Command, with the second part of the Duality arc coming to the game from Scopely bringing enhanced cloaking effectiveness. “The Klingons and Romulans have ramped up their war machines in an effort to resolve their conflict over the mysterious hybrid, Roj. Time is running out, and the outcome rests in your hands. Part Two of the Duality arc expands on Ship Cloaking technology and its impact in battle. The Federation have found a way to acquire the highly controversial device, and are now prepared to run their own stealth operations..[n]ew research opportunities have been developed to further increase the effectiveness of Cloaking, allowing for ever more devious plots and schemes to be hatched.” Image: Scopely. Patch 36 includes a new Second Repair queue, four new Ship Cloaking Refits, twenty new missions, and three new officers, including two Epic ones. [Epic] Sela, with the Captain Maneuver: Hit Them Where it Hurts–Increase critical hit damage by X% when cloaked. [Epic] Eleven Of Eleven, with the Captain Maneuver: Efficient Crystal Acquisition–Increases Crystal mining speed by 60%. [Rare] Tomalak, with the Captain Maneuver: Patient Tactician–which increases all penetration stats by X% while cloaked. The update also contains a number of bug fixes, as well as improvements to the web store.
