agt 018 : fake families

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.

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!

agt 011 : picard - broken pieces

In this episode of All Good Things, Amy Nelson and Patrick Devlin discuss “Broken Pieces,” the most recent episode of Star Trek Picard. This title expertly identifies the broken characters of Soji, Romadha, and Rios who are looking to find the pieces to fix their lives. Are the Romulans the true villains, or is the Zhat Vash belief in The Admonition fact or myth?
