We continue with oddball pairings this week and it goes into some uncomfortable territory. Last week we developed an entire relationship between Janeway and Neelix. This week we spend time on more than one couple. We tackle, flirting, infidelity, and how there were a lot of triangles in Deep Space Nine.
It's easy to make a best and worst list of Star Trek episodes; they're all over the internet. But no one is making a "mediocre" list. In this episode, we discuss what are some common characteristics of forgettable Trek episodes that aren't terrible.
Char and Tristan discuss what it was like growing up Star Trek fans and how they either wrote down their Trek fantasies or just played them in their head. Imagining themselves on the bridge of the Enterprise or lost in the Delta Quadrant, it didn't matter because it was a place to escape. They discuss this as well as how certain fantasies can become unhealthy.
What are some of your Star Trek fantasies that you go to?
There is zero way of knowing for sure but your Punch It crew loves a good "What if?" This week, we take a look at the Picard trailer again and see if we can fill in the gaps between when Jean-Luc leaves Starfleet and when the show picks up. So many direction to go in it's hard to choose one, but we try.
What if "Year of Hell" was on other iterations of Star Trek?
This was a listener suggestion that we were itching to try out. We started developing scenarios for Deep Space Nine and The Original Series and got really excited. As we moved on to The Next Generation and Enterprise we started seeing a pattern in the existing writing of the show.
