200 - The Star Trek Holiday Special
It's the 200th episode of Ceti Alpha 3!
Darren, Daniel, and Phillip take a moment to celebrate in the spirit of the season - by creating three different Star Trek holiday specials, spread across the age of the franchise!
A Klingon Kristmas - Darren takes us to 1986 and The Original Series crew, as Captain Kruge encounters some issues in his plan to attack the Enterprise-A. Will Scotty be able to decorate the tree in time? Will a certain musical group with the same name as a certain super secret planet-making project appear? Will any of the sets look convincing?
A Christmas Q-rol - Daniel beams us to 2005, right before the last episode of "Star Trek: Enterprise." Season Greetings have arrived to the 22nd Century, and they have Ambassador Soval questioning whether human holiday traditions are compatible with a federation of planets. Before Captain Archer can soothe his fears, Q shows up! From there, Soval and Archer travel (not leap!) thru time, looking at all the human/Vulcan relationships, from Janeway/Tuvok, Kirk/Spock, and an infamous baseball game in the Deep Space Nine holosuite.
Zoom into Charity - Phillip returns us to the present day with a socially-distanced charity special, co-hosted by "Lower Decks" co-stars Tawny Newsome and Jack Quaid. Celebrities and musicians will provide some Trek-tainment, along with some special appearances by actors from "Picard," "Discovery," and the Kelvin-verse films. Stay tuned for an exciting teaser of "Star Trek: Strange, New Worlds" at the end!
Bonus: But wait, there's more! There is also a bonus holiday special featuring a certain Ferengi, his attempt to "steal" Christmas, er, the Gratitude Festival from the Bajorans and his ill-fated escape to the Gamma Quadrant to sell all the toys.
