Episode Log: Asteroid Mining

Listen to Episode 110: Asteroid Mining

Suffering from a double dose of Vitamin K deficiency this week, with the mysterious absences of the bodacious Bajoran and the charismatic Kanadian, the Admiral did the only thing there is to do in such an instance…he called on the double-K power of the one and only…UNKK!!TM

What with all the recent space happenings, including the shuttle shuffle along the East Coast and the announcement of the group Planetary Resources (yes, that group) to partake in some good old-fashioned asteroid mining, there’s lots to chat about with our favorite NASA denizen! So pop some Tang, crunch up some astronaut ice cream over your real ice cream, and settle back for some space banter guaranteed to edify you in a celestial way!

Random space nerd humor…

Final Flight

Special thank you to the Starbase’s NASA correspondent UNKK!!TM for sending us these gorgeous shots of the Shuttle Discovery’s recent relocation from Kennedy Space Center to her new home at the Smithsonian’s Udvar-Hazy Annex of the Air and Space Museum!

Welcome home, Discovery!

Episode Log: The Borg

Listen to Episode 109: The Borg.

We’ve been telling you this all along, listeners: Resistance is futile.

Know what else is futile? Herding cats…and trying to keep the crew of the Starbase away from the great Tangent Trail. Be kind listeners: It’s the first time the whole crew’s been together in Ops since episode 99! Listen as they bounce along from topics that range from remembering the artistic greatness of Ralph McQuarrie, Jake Lloyd comes out for AnnieAnti-Bullying measures, the Admiral nears aneurysm levels over Lucas’s Greedo sacrilege, Superman Vs. Hulk…

Okay, let’s pause a moment for Superman Vs. Hulk, shall we?

Okay. Back on track!

Kennedy keeps confusing franchises, Ro raves about her recent UNKK!!TM Experience, and the Admiral decides that the crew should rendezvous at Kennedy Space Center for the 2013 unveiling of Atlantis’s new home. Meanwhile, Ro is nearing total apoplexy over the imminent arrival of Discovery to the Udvar-Hazy, Kennedy is angry that Disney is bringing down another of his favorite book franchises while the Bajoran doesn’t understand why he’s getting so worked up over a character from ER.

Finally, it’s time to alert Starfleet Command: We have engaged the Borg. But we enter into the ongoing struggle against these cybernetic foes with backup from Jason, host of Atomic Trivia War 9000 and co-host of Simply Syndicated’s newest podcast, Remastered.

Listen as we divulge classified information on the origin of the species, famous conflicts, infamous alterations, favorites, flubs, one crew member’s worrisome knowledge of Hugh Borg’s life after his Descent, queens of all kinds, and…well, as all conversation about the Borg are destined to do, gushing over our favorite Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix Zero One.

Futile, indeed.

So secure the docking bay doors, charge up the weapons, and take your stations. We’re going after the Big Bads of the Delta Quadrant in full force, listeners! But while we wait for them to recharge their batteries and search for a stronger wi-fi signal, enjoy this educational video on the Pwnage of the Son of Mogh. Q’apla!
