Categories include: Riker’s Angles: The Romances of William Riker, To Betazed or Not to Betazed, Lower Decks: TNG Edition, The Badmirals, Honorable Mentions: The Klingons of TNG, and Subcommander Hitchcocks: The Warbirds.

gc: 015: bat'leth battle - conspiracy vs all good things

In the fifth of our ongoing Bat’leth Battle series, we pit Conspiracy (1×25) vs. All Good Things (7×25). Kevin, Joe and Ria debate the these two episodes…but how close can a battle like this be? Kevin relates the story of watching the finale at the Skydome in Toronto, but he underestimated the size of the crowd by 10,000 people. Here is a link to a playlist of the interstitials that the local station did at that event: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLoLs5PKcW5oOlZHimO9cljtK_ol6Lzz4l

gc: 010: deanna troi : part 1

Half-Betazed and half-human, Deanna Troi makes for a very special counselor to Captain Picard and his crew. Although we know the writers had a difficult time finding Troi’s role and voice with the crew and stories, we love her and know her to be a valuable member of the Enterprise-D. Amy, Kevin, and Joe discuss all things Counselor Deanna Troi; her achievements, memorable moments, and favorite quotes. However, we have so much to say, that we will have to continue this discussion at a later date…

gc: 008: wHAT IF: pART 1

Star Trek tells many stories that could have turned out worse than they did. In this series, we look at the many “what ifs” that the writers may have considered and discuss how other stories would have changed. In this episode, Ria, Amy, and Pierre contemplate Worf’s death in “Ethics”, Wesley’s imprisonment in “Justice”, and Hugh’s acceptance and inclusion as a member of the crew in “I Borg”.
