TNG 7×08 Attached

Every time I watch this episode, I wish something more had happened. I like to think they showered together when they got back to the enterprise, but what’s with the whole “and maybe we should” comment from Beverly? Oh well at least they eventually got married. When I watch this episode I’m reminded of my crush on Gates McFadden, which only increased when I met her, and stood next to her for about 10 minutes a few years back. She is such a nice person and absolutely gorgeous. 

DS9 waiting for 4K Blu Ray?

I feel like something is missing from my life… #DS9onblurayplease #VGRonblurayplease

IMG_1650.JPG The only good thing about a delay in a remastered version of DS9 would be if they did it in 4K Blu Ray. The format is coming out later in 2015 (the future) better that than DS9 season 1-3 say Blu Ray then 4-7 4K Blu Ray. Idk, either way I still want them.

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?

Netflix Rumored to get exclusive new Star Trek series

According to geek.com

20140610-144021-52821684.jpg
If this does happen, and they release the seasons like House of Cards 13 or so all at once, I will be taking 3 days off work to watch them. And I got dibs on the podcast. I don’t want to get my hopes up, but it has been 10 years since enterprise ended so it is about time. Could something in the Firefly universe be next?
