Mission Log 098 Let’s Get Naked

nakednow_hd_043I have really been enjoying Mission Log lately. Mission Log 096 Star Trek VI I agreed with both John and Ken’s points. I have to say despite The Undiscovered Country being “not true” to Star Treks ideals, it’s a damn good movie and a great way to finish out TOS. My favorite part of VI has to be the music, I absolutely love it.

The latest supplemental 018, Part B of the interview with Michael & Denise Okuda was a nice surprise. It was great to hear even more from them. As I’ve said before, I’m a big Okuda fan, and the audio quality was much improved from part A. I LOLed when Ken described the how and why of the audio quality.

Mission Log 097 Encounter at Farpoint was a great show, and like Ken, I had a little bit of an emotional moment starting Star Trek: The Next Generation once more, knowing I’m going to experience the journey all over again. When Picard walks around the new Galaxy Class Starship and looks out that window I’m 12 years old again, bright eyed and ready to go wherever this new ship will take me.

I just have to say at this point, I can’t get enough of John Champion and Ken Ray. Great choices Rod. I even followed them to The Ready Room, which is good and bad. The good: it was nice hearing them in a less structured format. The bad: I might have to add The Ready Room podcast to my subscriptions. I even checked out Mac OS Ken while waiting for MLOG 098 to be released. farpoint_hd_055

On a personal note, I have been very busy lately with my own show and getting ready for my first panel at Dragon Con AND my new kickstarter.   But it has now become a tradition for me, that at 2:55 am on Wednesday night/Thursday morning, I stop whatever I’m doing, I turn the lights off, sit on my couch, put my earpods in and open my Podcast App on my iPhone 5s and keep pulling down on the Mission Log feed at 3:00 AM until the show appears. I don’t think I’m an obsessed fan as much as, this is my Star Trek Time, and everything else can wait.

OK, now, Mission Log 098 The Naked… um Now. This is the first MLOG in a while that I have listened to without watching the episode again beforehand (because of the aforementioned business) I have probably seen The Naked Now a ridiculous amount of times, because even as a child I recorded the TNG shows and would watch them back again and again in order before the next show would air. So for the longest time it would go something like this; first week TNG 1×01, 1×01 then second week 1×01, 1×02 then the third week 1×01, 1×02, 1×03 and so on. You get the idea. AnyQ back to my point, I was able to get right into the episode like I had just watched it yesterday, which I should have.

Thanks to John and Ken, I had thoughts about The Naked Time… er Now that I have never had before. I Sh*# you not, but while they were talking about why Data would be fully functional I had a flash in my Mind’s Eye of Doctor Noonian Soong holding Data’s… ahh… junk in his hand and testing it out to verify it was indeed fully functional.

Next time I have my Star Trek time, MLOG will be talking about Code of Honor, which at Megacon in Orlando two years ago, the entire TNG cast was very outspoken about that episode being the worst one of the series (I think it’s Too Short a Season myself). They even called it a racist episode. I never saw that, I think if you view the episode colorblind, the Ligonians could have been cerulean blue and it wouldn’t have changed anything. I may be wrong and I look forward to hearing what John and Ken have to say about the subject.

Thanks guys for the great work, oh and did I win a Transporter?
