agt 024 : new from the old

Spock tells us that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one. Can we use this logic in determining the needs of an individual? Patrick and Amy discuss ENT’s “Similitude” and VGR’s “Tuvix,” where both Sim and Tuvix have an overwhelming desire to live, yet their captains have different outcomes in mind for them.

agt 023 : i am not your father

Two young men were raised by fathers and families not their own. So what is their culture? Is it the culture they were raised in or the culture of their family history? Jono from TNG’s “Suddenly Human” and Rugal from DS9’s “Cardassians” face similar difficulties in answering this question. Pat and Amy discuss the ideas of nature vs. nurture and compare and contrast the two episodes.

*Please forgive the audio quality of this episode. Due to unforeseen circumstances a power surge blew out Patrick’s microphone input on his mother board during recording, and its effect wasn’t discovered until after recording had ended.

agt 021 : computer downloads

Technology now permeates our lives, but does it continue into the afterlife? Can we save ourselves within a computer program? Star Trek seems to think so. Amy and Ken discuss TNG’s “11001001” and “The Inner Light,” VGR’s “Memorial,” and DSC’s “An Obol for Charon” to see how downloading a computer program changes a civilization and its history.

agt 020 : deep space nine

It only took two years for Amy to finish her rewatch of Deep Space 9 and she has some questions. Thankfully, Ken and Zach were around to answer them. We highlight characters, storylines, and favorite moments of this series all the while trying hard to not compare it to TNG, which is still Amy’s favorite Star Trek series

agt 018 : fake families

It’s only human nature to wonder what might have been and in the realm of sci-fi, we get to explore this idea. Within each of the series of Enterprise, The Next Generation, Deep Space 9, and Voyager, Star Trek explores this idea of ‘what might have been’ in terms of a family scenario.
In this episode of All Good Things, hosts Patrick Devlin and Amy Nelson discuss the reasons why one would want to create a fake family, how it could be done, and if we would create our own fake family given different situations. We invite you to watch ENT Oasis, TNG Survivors, DS9 Shadowplay, and VOY Real Life.

agt 017 : strange new worlds announcement

Amy Nelson and guest Brandon Shea-Mutala discuss the exciting announcement of the new Star Trek series, Strange New Worlds! This series is a direct response to the overwhelmingly positive fan reaction to Anson Mount as Captain Pike, Ethan Peck as Spock and Rebecca Romijn as Number One. We compare Discovery and Picard to what might happen in this new series.

agt 016 : agent of hard time

Mind probes are a questionable technique used to torture and inflict pain. In TNG’s “Frame of Mind” and DS9’s Hard Time respectively, both Riker and O’Brien must deal with the impact of these mind altering realities as they try to adjust back to real life. In this episode of All Good Things, Amy and Kevin Parlagreco discuss using such devices in the crime and punishment, the barriers the mind introduces when protecting to protect itself, and recognize the strength in being vulnerable and allowing yourself to heal from trauma.

agt 015 : prime directive

General Order Number One or the Prime Directive as it is more commonly known, is the most fundamental principle in Starfleet and one that all officers must follow. But why is it so frequently broken? Pat and Amy analyze Enterprise “Dear Doctor” and The Next Generation “Pen Pals” episodes to learn about the Prime Directive and its many facets.

agt 013 : picard - et in arcadia ego part 2

Join Amy Nelson and Patrick Devlin as they discuss the first season finale of Star Trek: Picard. Picard willingly sacrifices himself to show Soji what is “real” and that sometimes it is necessary to kill a life to save a life. Just as Data sacrificed himself in Nemesis, to prolong Picard’s life – a true understanding and application of humanity. Plus, Captain Riker!
