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.
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 wonderful for us to discuss! Or a Christmas thing. We’ll see.
Note that this and all episodes of the It’s Got Star Trek podcast contain explicit language and, frankly, an unnecessary amount of offensive content, so the show is intended only for adults and really really cool kids.
