Arguing with your past selves

I just discovered this show - out of the sea of Next Generation shows - and decided on this podcast first. That places me in the unique position of arguing points aloud to people who drew these positions almost ten years ago. I’m constantly reminded to write in to the show - and I very badly want to (every ten minutes), only to remember that I’m so far behind, no one will even know what I’m on about. Regardless, I’ve started my journey with you and settled in on discovering the various series’ with your recaps and discussions. I meld with the sensibilities of this program … even when nine years ago you made ridiculous statements about Utopianism being the central reason for striving and misunderstood why the tng crew rejected “Q” powered Riker’s gifts. I appreciate the huge leaps this show was making in 2014 to feel like a “program” especially at a time when podcasting was still very lawless. You did an excellent job of recognizing the audience of your future by keeping the show informative, on subject and using metrics of analysis that wouldn’t be antiquated in the upcoming days. I appreciate all the hard work that went into preventing this entertainment from feel anything less than fresh - and I look forward to your continued presence in my fandom, as I strike out into the supplemental features, documentaries, books, sites and more. I’m not sure that I’ll ever catch up - but if I’m lucky, I’ll be arguing with “five years ago” you rather quickly.

Do they even like Star Trek?

I truly do not know if the hosts actually like Star Trek. I listened to all the TNG episodes when I first started listening to podcasts. The trivia was always interesting. As they started reviewing DS9 they never had anything nice to say. I did not listen for a few years until I started rewatching Voyager and DS9 recently. I did not even make it through one show. They just had negative comments on everything. The podcast with the actors from Voyager is much better. They point out the flaws with the show but they also show that they still love the show. Mission Log makes you feel like you’re an idiot if you actually enjoy Star Trek.

Liars & the Lie They Tell

It would be great if the hosts discussed what actually happened in the episode they are reviewing, instead of commenting upon their own inserted narrative that doesn’t actually happen in the episode they are meant to be discussing. “The First Duty” (T.N.G.) taught us that the first duty of every Starfleet officer is to the truth. Apparently, the first duty of “Star Trek” podcasters is to the lie.
