I think Derek’s most charitable laugh happens early in this episode, but I think our synergy is off here.

Also, we’re offering a $1000 reward for official Paramount Pictures concept work regarding Data’s D:\.

Evolution

Good Wesley episode? Good Wesley episode? Good Wesley episode? Aaah, I’m sure it is. Sadly, I think this marks a dropoff in the number of eccentric Great Man Scientists we see in Star Trek. They still come around, but they’re more rare. I’ll miss all you lil’ Rick Sanchezes. I’ll miss all y’all.

We’ll get back to making fun of Doctor Crusher’s parenting skills in time. In time. Right now, I’m going to celebrate Troi having a handful of scenes.

Also, I know the sound quality is bad. I honestly don’t know why. If it’s too bad, go ahead and tell me. I’m not leaning towards rerecording, but I’d hop over that line with a gentle push.

IT’S BEEN A LONG ROAD.

You’ll have to excuse the audio. Derek and I started this conversation over a friendly game of Stellaris and the topic of Tarantino’s Trek came up and we started recording…without headphones. Both of us. Sorry.

We’re finally done with Season Two and while I feel really good about Season 3–yes, Riker gets his redemption–I would like to do something like Season One’s Skreliosis or Season Two’s marathon. I’m open to suggestions. We’d even be willing to have some guests.

I also wanna say that–and maybe it’s because I’m listening to the Enterprise intro for no reason–we’ve been doing this for three years and it’s been great.

Thanks for listening.

(Most) Every Thursday, I make a brief development blog on my card/board game, Dead Parents Dungeon (DPD). It’s a fantasy-themed, light-hearted game about families and dungeons.

Current Progress: First Playtest Complete

So, I finally got the beta cards made up and did a playtest. I used the old Monster cards from the first beta and newer Adventurers, Heirlooms, Rumors, and Twist!s. The good news is that it was exactly the kind of trainwreck I anticipated.

Just like all the emotional parts of my relationships, my only contribution is, “Let’s get this over with.”
