Episode 31 – Rules of Acquisition

Andy and Jessica talk:

  • Brian Thompson
  • The Ferengi
  • Armin Shimerman
  • Dosi face paint
  • More Brian Thompson
  • Sexism. Yea. How could we not?
  • Rule 33
  • Ear hair combing. Ew.
  • What's your Ferengi rule to live by?
  • His name is Morn
  • What is the Federation doing out here?

Jessica's Rating

3 of 5 Dosi helmets

Andy’s Suggestions

  • Explorers (Season 3, episode 22) Hold off for now, but in a couple weeks we should definitely watch the boys create original Bajoran space flight.
  • Nagus (Season 1, episode 11) Meet the Grand Nagus!
  • Profit Motive (Season 3, episode 16) Zek returns with fresh rules of acquisition.
  • Family Business (Season 3, epsiode 23) Meet moogie in the family business.
  • The House of Quark (Season 3, episode 3) Quark takes credit for a death until Klingons show up.
  • Little Green Men (Season 4, episode 8) The Ferengi end up time traveling to Roswell, NM

Next Up: Blood Oath

Jessica's Prediction

Klingons are pissed at Curzon and Jadzia is going to have to avoid/hide from them taking vengeance. Bloody and oathy.

Peak Performance

Episode 20 – Peak Performance

Peak Performance

Andy and Jessica talk:
  • Games! Strategema, role playing, real time, war games, etc.
  • Wesley Crusher is sneaky, but thank god he was given horrible guard
  • Captain Riker
  • The Ferengi
  • Shoulda roped off the war games… and other plot holes
  • Starfleet and military-ness
  • Polaski, Data and Kolrami
  • Wil Wheaton, Geek and Sundry and other nerdliness

And because we said we’d show the awkward bend at the waist so that everyone could fit into the shot…
Worf sits next to Riker while a woman bends awkwardly to fit her face into the frame

Jessica’s Rating

4 of 5 Strategema Finger Nubs
4 out of 5 rating

Andy’s Suggestions

For Wesley Crusher (or really Wil Wheaton) fans, let’s watch him do the things in Final Mission, season 4 episode 9, and pair with Ashley Judd in season 5, episode 6, The Game.

Yesterday'd Enterprise

Next Up: Yesterday’s Enterprise

Jessica’s Prediction

The Enterprise is going to go through a series of backwards forced time jumps through history, picking up an old friend along the way.
