A Star Trek podcast about the ships not named Enterprise* by the Brothers Weems. A comedic take on the other, more explosion-prone ships of the fleet. (*or Defiant or Voyager or Discovery)
The USS Essex never shows up on screen in TNG's season 5, episode 15 "Power Play", but its crew does... well, whatever's left of them that was taken over by telepathic lightning ghosts? Look, it's complicated and the most important thing is that even when possessed by lightning ghosts, Chief O'Brien just wants a snack. Kyle decides this isn't enough, so the brothers go full nerd as they dig deeper into the Essex's shockingly deep presence in the beta canon of the books, and all of its encounters with... lizard people?!
The Lysian Alliance is a top-of-the-line military force... if it were the 22nd century. Unfortunately they're neighbors with the Federation and the USS Enterprise is suffering from amnesia and here to wreck their day. How bad is it when the Pakled have more firepower than you do? But, hey, Data's a bartender now and the brothers have a really good feeling about this new Kieran guy. Is he going to be a regular? Tune in and find out!
Dorf or Wax
The SS Vico does what all Oberth-class starships does, it inexplicably is destroyed doing basic space science. NEVER server on an Oberth, y'all. It doesn't help that it's also got Timothy on it, who's the kind of kid who assumes he'll doom a whole ship with the press of a button. Which he didn't do but still we had to hear him freak on it. A lot. Also, the brothers continue to fine-tune their experience recording the podcast live on Twitch! And try to ignore the fact that Kyle labelled the Vico as the Nico on the show. >_>;
Look there's no sugar-coating this. This is an Alexander episode. And part of an ongoing look at how bad of a dad Worf is. No really, he's just awful. But on the plus side we've got a Soliton Wave Rider, which is a cool test ship that can go to warp without a warp core thanks to a wildly dangerous beam of energy casually shot at another planet... which it'll destroy if it's not somehow stopped first. No big deal. Also, the brothers recorded this episode live?! That's right, the first of our "previously recorded live" podcast episodes! Tune in to get it all!
Space 80's Part 2: Space 90's
What the heck is Max Headroom doing in the 24th century with a time pod? And a clock that's also a ring? The brothers try to sort out how 90s an episode of Star Trek can get while also realizing how easy it is for any spacefaring race to destroy a planet's atmosphere at the drop of a hat. All this on our newest pod!
A Taste of Qo'NoS
the IKS Kruge is like other Klingon Birds-of-Prey, swoopy and glorious on the outside, and harsh concrete on the inside. Yuck. Do Klingons really sleep directly on metal? Captain K'Vada might claim so, but the son of Mogh seems to be enjoying lovely fur blankets every time we watch him canoodling. Despite this obvious lie, K'Vada is pretty clever, willing to tolerate Federation nonsense in exchange for some sweet, sweet Romulan intelligence. Meanwhile the brothers are clearly getting cabin fever, as they talk about cooking with too much sesame oil and their favorite TV genre: which is... walking videos? Tune into our newest pod for all this and more!
