#225 – ‘Imaginary Friend’ TNG S5E22

An unexpected visitor causes a ruckus in ceramics class. Join your especially-corporeal hosts as they examine this “middling but memorable” episode of TNG, which may have benefited from a few more rewrites but is elevated by excellent acting, clever concepts, and one of the more charming technobabble conversations between Geordi and Data. We also discuss other prominent imaginary friends in fiction!

Spoiler warning! We dive right into a detail-rich discussion of this episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, so if you haven’t had a chance to see it yet – beware!

Next week: Dan’s podcast-topic-selecting algorithm will generate something truly enlightening for us to discuss!

#219 – ‘Q Who’ TNG S2E16

Q sets Picard up on a fateful blind date. Join your impish hosts as they discuss the visceral and existential terror of the initial concept of the Borg, the intriguing but largely unpursued history between Q and Guinan, and that situationally-incongruent smile Riker makes at one point in the episode.

Commander Riker goes rogue after Captain Picard dies. Join your rag-tag gang of artifact-coveting hosts as they discuss 80’s villains in the 90’s, the combination of new ground and old hat common to most episodes of TNG’s seventh season, and, of course, all manner of ploys, ruses, and maneuvers!

#171 – ‘Ship in a Bottle’ TNG S6E12

#157 – ‘Second Chances’ TNG S6E24

Commander Riker is beside himself with envy. Join your transporter-averse hosts as they discuss Jonathan Frakes’ skillful differentiation between Rikers, the restraint shown by the writers to not have Riker and Riker engage sexually, and the proper occupational name for someone who trades in clones and clone accessories.
