Rules of Acquisition

Quark becomes involved in a plan to develop trade agreements with the Gamma Quadrant, but his new apprentice has a troublesome secret! In yet another Ferengi episode, DS9 struggles to find a tone that suits their story. Are they a dark satire, or a light hearted farce? Either way, this episode features the first mention of The Dominion, so there's that!

RR&RR: Steven Spielberg - Hook (29%)

Steven Spielberg is the highest grossing Hollywood director of all time, and is considered to be one of the greatest filmmakers that the world has ever seen. But even still, he did make "Hook" which is at 29% on Rotten Tomatoes! Clay and Wes discuss the two and a half hour long take on Peter Pan, and end up wondering for whom was this movie made? They also discuss musicals without music, miscasting Robin Williams, and trying to make a phone call around annoying kids!

Melora - Ft. Modi

In Melora, Bashir learns all about the pros of zero gravity, and Quark learns the cons of being a con. Ensign Melora is from a species that developed under low gravity, so getting around DS9 proves to be difficult. Fortunately, Bashir has taken an interest in the young ensign and is willing to push aside those pesky medical ethics in the name of... something? Modi joins me to discuss wheelchairs in the 24th century, chips on the shoulder, and Bashir's desires!

RR&RR: Tom Cruise - Risky Business (96%)

Risky Business launched Cruise’s career, and it also ended its directors! A 96% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Risky Business features Cruise as a high school senior who learns some hard lessons about life and prostitution while trying to get into an Ivy League school. Does the satire and tone hold up in 2018, or does it come across as a dated and out of touch ’80s flick with a surprising amount of nudity?

Will You Take My Hand?

The crew struggles with Georgiou’s hostile plan to end the war with the Klingons; meanwhile, Burnham faces painful memories. Clay and I discuss the finale to Discovery’s maiden season, “Will You Take My Hand?”. The show has had a frantic pace since the pilot, but will it all culminate in a finale that wraps up loose ends and sets up a second season? Or will we get another twist to keep us watching in a years time? We discuss throwing bombs down wells, the lack of Klingons on Qo’noS, and if we’ll see the inside of the Enterprise next season!

The penultimate episode of Discovery's first season, "The War Without, The War Within" features a lot of character interactions, which highlights both the good and the bad aspects of the series. Clay and I discuss thinking the Spore Drive was dead, moving to another lunch table, and finding a loved one in the Mirror Universe!

What’s Past is Prologue

Mirror Universe Lorca initiates his long planned coup; meanwhile, Burnham has to convince an unlikely ally to help Discovery return home. It’s time to say goodbye to the Mirror Universe (or so we think), and hello to a “surprise” that awaits us back home. Clay joins me to discuss an episode of Discovery that left us a little heated! In this episode, we break down the Lorca story line, praise the greatness of Saru, and wonder where we go from here!
